For the purposes of this blog, I’m going to go by the name Minjonet. I am all kinds of artistic and I started this blog as a challenge to write 365 creative writing entries–one a day for a year.

His shift ended in 20 minutes, the perfect amount of time to persuade him to take me out. I brushed my hands quickly across my hair and pulled my toothbrush out of my purse. Spicy aftertastes of a Mexican dinner wouldn’t be the best prelude to a make-out session. I kept my eyes on Anthony as I brushed. Not the hottest body in the shop, I remembered, but somehow we’d hit it off last Thursday. He had a great smile and pretty good sense of humor, despite the occasional gamers’ jokes.
Well, that’s a start.
