Every now and then, a comment or conversation will send me running for my notepad. Maybe it’s a snippet of dialogue I think would be perfect for an upcoming scene, or maybe it’s just something that makes me laugh.
I thought of this yesterday when I had the following exchange with my gentleman friend:
ME: We’ve been hanging out together for awhile now. Do you think it’s weird we haven’t had our first fight?
HIM: (pausing to grope me) Are you suggesting we fight just to get it out of the way?
ME: We might as well. Here, I’ll kick things off— Stop touching me, you stupid jerk!
HIM: No way. I’ll touch you whenever and wherever I want.
ME: Thank God.
HIM: (still groping me) Is the fight over?
ME: I think so. That went well, didn’t it?
HIM: Absolutely. We should make out now.
I have no idea if I’ll ever use it in a scene, but it made me smile anyway. Do you ever make note of conversational snippets that amuse you? Heard anything good lately? Please share!
I think I need to go start another fight.
