{ Here we go! }

After weeks and weeks of late work nights and never-ending case loads at the firm, Amy was completely burnt out. Young, ambitious, and dying to make a name for herself, she thrived off of the challenge, but she had reached her max. Amy loved living within the Boston metropolis, and lawyer life was great, but she was feeling restless... trapped. She knew it was time to get away.

Usually Amy was the responisble planner type, weighing her pros and cons while analyzing every last detail, but not today. This was her day to be free. She decided to call in sick bright and early that Thursday morning, packed up her Louis Vuitton luggage that she spent her Christmas bonus on, and was off to the airport.

With her long chestnut locks cascading out of her floral head scarf, she decided to go for it. There were millions of fabulous destinations to choose, but she felt like being wild, spontaneous Amy today. Walking up to the ticket counter, she took a deep breath and finally worked up the courage to say...



{ GO! }

Happy Mingling!


  1. I'd like to purchase a ticket for the next flight to Paris please.

    Amy couldn't help herself from asking the irresistible stranger his name. He responded with a sneaky grin, "It's Jeff. And it looks like we'll be sitting together."

  6. I am not fast enough for this. Eek! :)

  7. As it turns out, Jeff Walton was the son of Robson Walton, whose net worth was a mere $15.6 billion, though Amy would have never known by looking at him. Dressed in jeans and a casual pullover, Jeff looked like any other traveler in the line that day. As Amy would find out, Jeff was also fleeing to Paris, but for a much different reason...

    Hey Meg. Just blogged about this fun little exercise.

  11. ...ran off and said, I'll be back in a minute! "But you'll miss the flight," Amy said just as Jeff flew off. She grabbed her carry on and boarded the flight wondering if Jeff would make it in time. As she got settled in her seat:

  12. ..she noticed something in her purse that wasn't hers. It was a folded pieces of paper. Jeff must have dropped it earlier when he rushed off. Amy new she shouldn't have opened it, but her curiosity got the best of her. The note said...

  14. ...that feeling of butterflies in her stomach came to her. This was the first time in years that she'd been this attracted to someone. After all, her work had ruled her life for the last couple years. As she sat there waiting for Jeff, she wondered if maybe something might happen in Paris with him. Then suddenly...

    They did a last and final boarding call for the plane and started to close the door....

  16. She glanced up and saw Jeff walking towards her. She was so excited he had made the flight. But she couldnt figure out why she felt this was about someone she had just met. On his way up the aisle Jeff stopped and talked with a man in a pinstripe suit. They looked very serious and she wondered what they could be talking about....

  18. She heard bits and pieces of the conversation it seems that at one time they were business partners. It sparked her interest that maybe Paris could open up a whole new adventures lifestyle...

  19. ....their voices were muffled and they were conducting some very solumn business. Jeff then handed the man a thick wad of cash and shook his hand. He proceeded down the aisle to take his seat.



    My post about Mingle Monday! I love this little idea. Thanks!

  23. Here is the link to where I posted about Mingle Monday!!

  24. "I think I've lost some very important papers. I'm worried that the wrong person might find them."

    Amy wondered if she should tell him that she had his papers, or if he would know she read them, and that she knows his dark secret...

    caro's ramblings:

  25. "What Kind of Papers?" Amy asked inquisitively.

    "Papers for my pure bred Persian Cats in Ecuador". He shoved his hands in his pockets and stared at the floor with embarassment.

  28. Oh no, I just realized that I did this incorrectly! I really loved my idea, too -so, dang it! Sorry everyone -sorry Meg. Scratch what I wrote before. I will re-do:

    Once Amy heard Jeff mutter the words, "Pure bred cats in Ecuador," she had about 10 thoughts occur within 10 seconds.

    "This guy is so sort of strange... He just handed a big wad of money to a man on the plane. They were whispering. Then, he had the look of death on his face. Now, he is worried about pure bred cats? I'm SO sure..."

    After having these thoughts, Amy had to remind herself of something very important. Years ago, she had promised herself that she would NEVER get into another relationship with someone who seemed strange, right off the bat. Yes, this was only a plane ride, but she didn't want to ruin another moment in life by letting herself be attracted to a weird guy. Even if he's hot, he's NOT WORTH IT.

    This was her special moment. This was her time to shine. She was going to Paris for herself. With that said, she zoned Jeff out, and she listened to Womanizer on her iPod.

  29. Sorry Meg, I will do a better job next week. This is SUCH a cute idea. And, I love the background on your blog.
