Parsimonious

Word of the day prompt hosted by Melanie B Cee


This happened when –

I decided to meet this one girl I found on a dating application.

She was White and I was brown.

English was her first language and not mine.

But when I suggested that we go buy takeout for our first date,

She argued that we go to a fancy restaurant instead.

I, being me, didn’t give in and we ordered takeout.

She ate it peevishly and got up to leave the moment –

she finished stuffing herself with dinner!

 And called me a “Parsimonious Prick” as she closed the door behind her.

I pulled Oxford dictionary out of the book rack,

Because I was brown, she was white.
