“We met at the museum,” I grinned, linking my arm with Arnold’s.
Cadence raised an eyebrow, sniffed, then returned her glassy-eyed stare to her coffee. She swirled the spoon through the liquid, not once but thrice, and slowly raised the mug to her lips.
“Really?” she burbled as she drank. Swallowing down the elongated gulp, she delicately returned the mug to its position and looked back up at me, at us, and sneered.
Typical Cadence. I rolled my eyes.
“Well, considering that these days most people meet by swiping on a phone, I thought you’d be pleased I met someone because I bumped into them, in person.”
“Quite literally, too,” Arnold added.
“Yes, I’m still so incredibly sorry about that,” I mumbled, wincing as I remembered how the melted cheese flew out of my hands and all over his person. “I still don’t know why I even had melted cheese… in a museum. It was just there, in my hands, and then it went all over you… all over the dinosaur bones… the Mona Lisa replica… thank God it was only a replica.”
Cadence smirked as my face burned.
“Honestly, Janey –cheese? You smothered this poor man in cheese, and now, despite the odds, you’re dating?”
“It was fried haloumi with a cheddar fondue,” he shrugged. “How could I resist?”
Hullo, hullo! Today is Day 557 of @mariannewest’s five-minute #freewrite, the prompt for today is — museum — and this is what I came up with before the eggtimer website beep-a-beeped itself at me. 😀

It’s also STEEM POWER UP DAY TODAY!!!! I powered up 305 STEEM in honour of this day. It’s only a small drop in the ocean, but it’s all I could really afford right now… to be fair, I can’t even afford that. I know, I know –only invest what you can afford to lose. I’m in debt already. Aren’t most people these days? Anyway, here I am, raising a toast to a hopefully prosperous STEEM future! 🙂
