The Honeymooners

“Oh Roger! I can’t believe a week ago I didn’t even know you, and now we’re on our honeymoon.”

“Isn’t it wonderful, Juanita, my love?”

“But one tiny thing, Roger.”

“Yes?”

“My name’s not Juanita.”

“What?  Oh.  Well, I knew that . . . uh . . . Margarita?”

“That’s a drink Roger.”

“Anna Maria?”

“My dog.”

“Ha ha!  I was just teasing you . . .Hen . . . Henrietta?”

“You have no idea do you, Roger?”

“None.”

“It’s Matilda, Roger.”

“Matilda my love!  Let’s go check in.”

“Okay, and Roger?”

“Yes?”

“I love you.”

“I love you too, Juanita.”

Until next time . . . I love you

  1. Haha…. I can’t help but feel that Roger has done this rather often…! 😉
    On the other hand; perhaps he is somewhat ‘shy of a sandwich or two’ and is clouded by the love of his life… Either which way, it was a fabulous read… 🙂

  2. This is a good example of why endearing nicknames such as Honey, Sugar, Dear, and Sweetheart are so popular. It’s a whole lot easier than remembering old what’s-her-name.

  3. Funny…but then after peaking in on some comments…OOh, could be scary.
    At first I was thinking of those folks who have that rare brain disorder who can’t remember anything from the day before after sleep. I wasn’t thinking of a shark looking for goldfish…

    Intriguing endings leave room for new beginnings…
    Thanks for your visit.

    • Oh yes, now that you’ve pointed it out, it could take a turn for the scary. She married a man with a horrible brain disorder but only slowly discoverers it after it’s too late!
      And thank you for coming by and leaving your comment, Jules!! Much appreciated. 😀

    • Ha! I’m not very good with names either, David. I always try to make up for it by explaining that I never forget a face — because there’s no way anyone can disprove that! 😀

  4. Such a great ending! I see a great juxtaposition of a sappy love story where one has memory problems (a la Nicholas Sparks) and a humorous piece. Loved it!

  5. ohmygoodness i’m afraid that he’s just gonna hump her then dump her. lol but i still find the story so adorable haha she doesn’t seem to mind and it kinda looks that they’re both having so much fun. great story 🙂

    • Haha! So glad you liked it KZ and I’ve never heard the phrase “hump her and dump her” I will try to find a reason to use it in my next conversation. LOL! (Oh this is going to be fun! :D)

Please leave a comment. I need help finishing my sentences.
