Six Sentence Sunday 11-6-11

Surfer Dude's back. (For those of you who have been waiting.)

     “You here tomorrow, Gidge?”
          Mia raised an auburn eyebrow, the coppery brown of a worn penny-cronoson, a shade or two darker than the fiery mahogany of her hair.
          “It’s an Old Earth term," he started to explain, but she squirmed out of his arms to click the computer keyboard.
          “Gidget?” she squeaked. “Girl midget?”
          “Well, you only come up to here on me, Shortcake,” he shrugged, and drew a line at his clavicle.

Loved it! Wouldn't expect to find a Gidget reference in an SFR, which gets the attention. The characters seem very appealing!

Carrie Ann Ryan said...

*snort* LOL Love it! As someone who is proudly 5ft 1 and 3/4 inches - I totally am offended. Or not. Just realistic in the fact that everyone towers over us "gidgets" LOL. Love your six hon.

Layna Pimentel said...

LOL Great dialogue! Actually, I love the nicknames. :)

What story is this from?

Lindsay said...

Love the tease in the dialogue but he'd better be careful she doesn't smack him

Brien Michaels said...

Lol! I can feel her annoyance at being called Gidget, but damn if that wasn't funny...

Alix said...

Awesome dialogue!

Jessica Subject said...

Sounds like a foot in the mouth moment. But would he? Great six! Love how your characters are so distinctive. :)

Cate Masters said...

Too funny! Love the reference. Maybe if she watches some of those old beach movies, she won't mind so much. :)

jabelfield said...

Hahaha. Surfer dude's a charmer, no? LOL

annecarverpnr said...

Oh, poor girl. I'm pretty sure she'll forgive him, though. Right?

Amy said...

Great six. He seems sweet and endearing!

Ha ha! :) Nice six, though now that Halloween is over I sort of miss the Sleepy Hollow Dreams excerpts. I've finally got it on my kindle though, so I'll be rekindling the Halloween spirit sometime soon!

Too funny! This brought back memories of surfer dudes trying to teach me to surf at Huntington Beach back in the days of really long boards. I never got so I could stand up by myself. But looking back on it, that wasn't exactly a bad thing. lol Great six. And great hero.

JulieD said...

Monica Enderle Pierce said...

Speaking as a Gidge, I'd bite his kneecaps off.

Hailey Edwards said...

I'm thinking he better guard his dangly bits for a while after this one. LOL

Siobhan Muir / Meg Palevich said...

She might only come up to "here" on him, but that means she's at the perfect height to get him "down there"! Fun six, Taryn. :)

lexcade said...

Graylin Fox said...

Playful exchange between them. I love it.
