Neon…How they met.

“What do you think that means,” he asked the woman next to him.

“Beast me,” she said, looking at the neon sign.

“Maybe it means you can’t be asleep or you’ll never find love.”

“Maybe,” she said.  “But I don’t think so.  People should stop looking for something that might not exist.  Lust might be real, but no one knows what love is, besides a word in the dictionary.”

“You’re a cynic?”

“No.  Just not a romantic.

“Ah.  That’s actually refreshing.  I don’t like the romantic thing either.”

“It’s kind of a waste of time and it never seems real.  I’d rather go to a bookstore, have a cup of coffee, and talk about whatever we’re both reading.”

“Me too.”

“Life’s short.  Some of my friends friends like to be swept off their feet, but that’s just not me.”

“My name is Eddy.”

“Pam.”

“Nice to meet you.”

“Same here,” she said.

“So you don’t know what the sign means?”

“Could mean we should open our eyes because love is all around us, or in front of us.”

“I suppose.”

“So many signs don’t make any sense.”

“It’s starting to rain.  Do you want to continue our conversation in the bookstore across the street?  They have great coffee.”

“Sure why not,” she said.  “What are you reading?”

Neon…a short conversation.

You're Beautiful marquee signage

“If everyone is beautiful, then being beautiful is meaningless.  And, what is the definition of beautiful anyway?  What about the eye of the beholder?”  asked Josie.

“Don’t know.  Don’t care,” sighed Amy. “Let’s get a pizza, and not overthink it.  Just let it go.”

“If I let it go, then nothing changes.”

“Nothing changes no matter what we do.  You should know that by now.  People don’t have a voice.  We don’t matter.”

“That sucks.”

“It does, but what do you want on your pizza?”

Neon…at very short story.

“Are you in line?” he asked.

“No,” she said.  “I’m just standing here.  I’m not going into the bar.”

“Why?”

“Why what?” she asked.  “Why am I just standing here, or why am I not going into the bar?”

“Both,” he said.

“Read the sign.  Good Vibes Only, and I’m miserable tonight, so I can’t go in with those kinds of vibes.”

“Maybe I’ll see you on the way out, then,” he said.

“Maybe.  If I’m still here.”

Neon…a realllly short story.

“What do you think that sign means?”  she asked.

“Don’t let the man keep you down?” he said, hoping that he was right.  “What do you think it means?”

“I think it means we should ignore the lies and keep the child we once were, alive.  It means to never let them kill our creativity and turn us into drones who work until our batteries die and all we’re left with is acid reflux and  lives mostly un-lived.”

“That’s what I meant,” he laughed, wrapping his arms around her.

…and I want it now…

In the words of Freddie Mercury, I want it all.  There’s nothing wrong with wanting it all.  I always want it all and to me…that’s the reason for being alive.  When I die, everyone can said, “She had it all…and it rocked.”   There’s no point for settling for less.  Ever.  Just be careful, what you wish for.  Be specific and make sure you dot all the “I’s.”
