Love You Later…

For this week’s challenge, you must write a fifty-word story. Not five thousand, not five hundred, but precisely fifty words.

He wrote to me in ink. He gave me a blank canvas, but I had no vision to fill it. He wanted to drown in us, but I was busy gasping. His pages spoke rivers. Mine, a vast unyielding ocean. But no matter. It was always there: love you later

Make Me Smile: Paris in the Rain

If you’re feeling blah, what is the one thing you do that you can count on to put a smile on your face?

Whenever I’m feeling down, I usually just want to sit around and watch movies. But there are some movies that are in themselves downers and make you want to cry simply because of the plot of the story. So, of course, when I’m feeling down I don’t want to wamidnight-in-paris-poster-1tch one of those movies. I also am not usually taken with action movies, although that happens to be my favorite genre. You might think that in this case I would either go for a comedy or a good old fashioned rom-com. Nope. My go-to-movie that always makes me feel wonderful, puts me on cloud nine, no matter the mood, is Midnight in Paris.

It is my all time favorite movie and it always puts a smile on my face. It always leaves me feeling very giddy even after it’s over. It just has that affect on me. It’s a movie that reflects me. It reflects all of the things that I love and more. It’s my favorite authors, it’s some of my favorite actors (specifically, my favorite actor Tom Hiddleston playing my favorite author F. Scott Fitzgerald), it’s touching, it’s sweet, it’s funny and above all, it’s Paris in the Rain.

If you haven’t seen it, you’re just waiting for a moment of pure happiness.
