A Nice City Boy

He was en route to the farm when his cell rang.  It was Veronica.  He thought of ignoring it but answered anyway.  “Yes?”

“I’m sorry for what I said about farmers.”

“It’s how you really feel.”

“I thought you were a businessman who lived in Minneapolis.  I had no idea you lived on farm.”

“Well, I do.  Farming is my life and any woman who wants to date me has to accept that.”

“So, there’s no chance of us…?”

“No.  It won’t work out.”

“I’m sorry.”

“Don’t be. I’m not.  I hope you find yourself a nice city boy.”

    1. That’s true, Sascha. Being the romantic I am, though, I decided to have her go to the farm and apologize in person, try to make amends and he, relents and gives her another chance. Thanks 🙂 Am delighted that you liked the story.


  1. Personally, I think he’s right to be cautious. That remark of hers might be from ignorance that could be corrected, but it was unthinking and those are often deeply embedded. I’m thinking she would probably be better off with “a nice city boy”. Well, you certainly stirred us up with this wonderful bit of dialogue 😀

    1. Yes, he has that right, Eugenia. Her remarks were made out of ignorance which could be corrected. This city girl is besotted with the farmer so, I decided to give her another chance 🙂
