Sarah and the Elf

This week the prompt is: “What was he thinking? OMG! Elves are soooo 2009…”

 “What was he thinking? OMW! Elves are soooo 2009…”  
Sarah stared in disbelief at her boyfriend of only two weeks. She’d worked so hard to have a boyfriend by Christmas, too! She wasn’t sure what was worse the pointy shoes or the jingling hat, but he was no Will Farrow! Even worse, his song list included Eartha Kitt’s “Santa Baby” and Wham’s “Last Christmas”, but no Gene Autry and no Nat King Cole? Not even Bing!
They were so done! But not until after the holidays or as soon as she could hook up with someone new. Whichever came first.

    And thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.

  2. Hahaha! First get that Christmas present, then dump him!!

  3. Maybe next year, she’ll choose a clown in lieu of an elf!

  4. It is all very common in the human world too!!

  5. Ho ho ho….she doesn’t deserve an elf! and thanks for visiting my blog!

  6. Her elf came up a little “short”, how sad!

  7. LOL. That was great!

  8. It’s hard to find a good elf anymore.


  9. Elves have caused me nothing but grief. I recommend leprechauns!

  10. Sarah rhymes with my daughter’s name – Cara. Are you sure you weren’t talking about her? This story sounds somewhat familiar!

    Well done!

  11. yikes … i know girls like that … sad but true!

  12. This is very cute. I especially like the song list, and “Not even Bing!” Poor Sarah.

  13. Hope Sarah gives him another chance 🙂

  14. LOL, I loved this and I loved ‘she’d worked so hard to get a boyfriend by christmas … brilliant’

  15. Aww, Sarah should wait before dumping him. He might end up being a nice guy just a little goofy, ha.

  16. I love “Santa Baby,” but I ain’t that crazy about boyfriends dressed as elves. Elves are only allowed to be elves in my world. Very well done. Loved it!

    Merry Christmas……….cj

  17. Awesome…and I agree with cj (no boyfriends dressed like elves)

  18. Must be peer pressure to have her stuck with a Bf with elvish tendencies through the Holidays…But what if he was Like Orlando Bloom, would she still say “we are done”….lovely post….Merry Christmas…. 😉

  19. Nice use of the prompt!
    Best wishes,

  20. Clever and creative us of a difficult prompt.

    I could really visualize this…and I might have dated a guy or two like this back in the day – ha!

    I hope you are having a lovely relaxing day recovering from a glorious and joyful Christmas!

    Thank you for linking.
