"Yes, and this one's a model. I'm taking her to that new rustic restaurant by the river. I'm expecting a special night!"
"How do you do it?!" I exclaimed. "A new great-looking woman every night!"
"Some of us got it," he replied with his typical modesty.
"Well, I'll be here with my stamp collection. Later I'll drink a warm glass of milk and watch Mr. Johnny Carson."
Of course, role reversal can be fun.
Like how I completely switched roles of Russell and me in the story above!
Well, this time around I made only a tenuous connection to the picture prompt above to pull a switch and give Russell my personality and make me out to be like him. In reality my special night with the super model turned out to be super, while Russell was pleased to find a Rutherford B. Hayes stamp in his collection which he carried around for months.
The other Friday Fictioneers have hopefully been more true to the picture prompt and you can find their takes on it by clicking right here.
Yes, poor Russell. I wonder if it's too late to give him some pointers?
