He took her to his place, and they had tea and biscuits.
Rain poured outside.
She wanted to go home, but he did not let her; she did not have an umbrella, and he did not trust her enough to lend her his.
‘Where will I sleep?’
‘In the bathtub.’

It echoes of Beatles’ ‘Norwegian Wood’
I don’t know why you say that. I do like the song much, you know! But there’s no furniture in this story.
Probably this line, about sleeping in the bath!
She told me she worked in the morning and started to laugh.
I told her I didn’t and crawled off to sleep in the bath
I forgot about that!
You’re right guys.
I love the song. And the Beatles!
Yes there’s no furniture but I think because of the Bath! Your compositions are great Vincent Mars.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again (with a first-thing-in-the-morning grin spread across my face): YOU CRACK ME UP!!! (thanks).
What am I to do with your Linda? 🙂
Is that where he is sleeping too? 😉
It’s hard enough for one person to sleep in the tub. For two it’s really tricky. Unless they sleep on top of each other.
I wouldn’t know.
Maybe he’s celibate.
He didn’t let her sleep in the bathtub, did he? I sense this man is more romantic. Although that fear of loosing an umbrella worries me… It must have been just an excuse…! 😉 Otherwise, why didn’t he walk her home? Then he’d have control of his umbrella all time.
What would you do?
I would certainly go without eating.
The bathtub is horribly uncomfortable. If he were a gentlemen, *he’d* sleep there and give her his bed. I like the photo.
I hope that he gave her a blanket or pillow at least..or did he perhaps just fill it with water..
He was teasing, right? Meanwhile, did you draw that? It’s lovely 🙂
I can’t draw a straight line. 😦
oh hahaha my this is so funny i am laughing aloud
