Cosmopolitan


Maybe if I slip some doctor in his drink.

Maybe if you what? Are you still going on about that jerk?

I was just wondering if I could make up some Bach flowers – maybe some Walnut and Wild Oat to predispose him towards me. Tell him it’s a vitamin drop.

Maura, please tell me you’re just trying to annoy me. You aren’t serious, are you? Right now he’s just a douche. You don’t want him to think you’re psycho, do you?

Maybe I am psycho. Maybe he makes me psycho.

Maura, honest to god, I don’t know why you’re mooning over him – pass me a napkin, would ya? You could do so much better.

What’s better? I love listening to him talk. He knows so many stories about the history of this neighborhood, the politics behind street names, the skinny on the public statues, all the political scandals. It’s fascinating.

Fascinating, huh? He sounds like he’s full of hot air.

What time is it?

We just have time for a quick smoke. Hey, are you on again tomorrow?

Yup. I’m on all week. I wanna try to get in some overtime this month.

Why don’t you mix me up a potion that will make me rich? Just slip it in my coffee?

Ha! I wish. You want me to make up a remedy for you, Kath? I can, you know. Maybe some Olive for energy? I think Cherry Plum is supposed to make your dreams really vivid.

Vivid, huh? I wouldn’t mind some vivid dreams I guess. Don’t tell me though, okay, just slip it in when I’m not looking.

Sure. That way I can practice my moves. Won’t have to tell him they’re vitamins. Won’t have to tell him anything at all.

Maura, I swear to god!

C’mon, we’re gonna be late!

    1. Together forever... I've said it before and I'll say it again: be careful what you wish for. The little rituals can be fun, and informative, though. Thanks for reading, kz!

  3. This is great kymm - funny and terrific dialog - very real. I live in a town with 2 herb shops that will concoct a combination for whatever ails you. So it all made sense to me.. :)

    1. So glad you liked it, Steph, thanks! I actually do use Bach remedies on occasion. Then again, I've been known to throw Tarot cards, too. Whatever helps!

    1. I really NEEDED to get it out of the way! Maybe I shouldn't admit to it, but I had them working as checkout girls. Of course, you can give them jobs wherever you want.
      Thanks for the love, Ted!

  10. i love the dialogue. i feel like this could almost be a crazy conversation a friend and i would have, though we wouldn't be quite so serious about the love potion cosmo having a realistic effect. haha

  11. The banter between these two was entertaining. Reminds me a bit of teen conversations when one of us couldn't stop talking about the latest guy we were obsessed with...except we didn't think of potions and spells :)
