ALWAYS A PRINCESS

A:  (Ang bantered all day and eventually turned off her computer and rocked back into her chair)  I want to talk.

Z:  I want to write.

A:  Talk to me.

Z:  Write with me.

A:  ( She shouted and pointed)  Look.

Z:  (He turned his head to see what she was referrencing and as he did she turned off his mochine)  Ok... what do you want to talk about?

A:  Stuff.

Z:  That narrows the field to everything in this universe.

A:  Hey... don't be mean.

Z:  You are being a Princess.

A:  Cinderella lives within us all.

Z:   I get it.

A:  The foreverness of romance ... Casablanca... “Was that cannon fire, or is it my heart pounding?” Ilsa in “Casablanca” with Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart. Warner Bros. 1942, directed by Michael Curtiz.

Z:  You are feeling mushy?

A:  "Other men said they have seen angels, But I have seen thee  And thou art enough." was written by G. Moore.  That stuff tugs at my heart strings.

Z:  "Your beauty just embarrassed the first cherry blossom of Spring."  Wrye Balderdash.

A:  Yes you get it.  "When you love someone, all your saved-up wishes start coming out." was by Elizabeth Bowen (1899-1973)

Z:  You are acting a bit hormonal.

A:  Love is important and our world is becoming fast and expedient.  Can one be titillating in 140 characters?

Z:  “Sex is nature's way of saying 'Hi!'”  If you get a date in 140 characters and that date leads to she bending lifting her skirt.  Maybe that is titillating.

A:  But not loving.  Sometimes we write idiosyncratic characters.  Quirky characters may lose their sexual appeal or not.  I love the push and pull of loving.

Z:  And even quirky folks need love.  "A woman who doesn't wear underwear feels naked in public...unless she is trolling...she wants everyone to notice but no one to point it out."  Wrye Balderdash.  Odd but should she not find love?

A:  She should and we should let her.  (She jots down a thought)  Are love letters romantic or not?  “To write a good love letter, you ought to begin without knowing what you mean to say, and to finish without knowing what you have written."  was written by Jean-Jacques Rousseau.  Should we write about love that way?

Z:  No!

A:  Lawrence Durrell wrote, “A woman's best love letters are always written to the man she is betraying.”  I don't want love to be so cruel and self-serving.

Z:  I'm a Jon Bon Jovi fan.  He said, “You know these love letters mix with whisky, just don't light a match when you kiss me.”  He was saying that words can be intoxicating as well as combustible.  I want to lit the fire of love.

A:  Me too.  (She removed a corn pad from her baby toe and put it into her pocket)  Can words cause one's panties to spontaneously fall to their ankles?  You say that often.

Z:  Yes they can.  "From the first clash of our eyes, the earliest waft of your daisy scent, the melodic rhythm of your voice, and the awe inspiring eyes, it was easy to see that you took my heart, hugged it and made it yours."  Wrye Balderdash.  Tell me that you don't feel from time to time sexual moved by what we write.

A:  Romance moves me....(She grins) toward the box of chocolate.

Z:  Ah, always the foodie!
 
A:  Your point.
