Raspberry Heartbreak

The swatch match of the dress was perfect. Caroline, her best friend and bride, selected the cotton eye over the duchess satin after the photographer assured her this was the optimal fabric for capturing the dusk light. The fruit roll-up shaped fortune cookies, an impeccable accent, would be complemented by a desert wine in the exact raspberry shade.

“We will be landing shortly. Sunny skies in Los Angeles and slightly breezy.”

“You can get a cab here and feel right at home,” offered her seat mate. “You look pale.”

“It’s blowing in the breeze. Right where I left it,” she sighed.

    1. True, but will it be the right shade of raspberry??! Guapo, it seems like a no brainer. I’ll give you that. Remember, it must match the other dresses and it won’t, so….disaster!


    1. It’s quite all right, Perry. I think this is not of my strong ones. I’m glad you said something, because I’m just sensing people are not understanding this.

      So, this woman is going to a wedding of her best friend, who planned everything to be perfect and matching in raspberry shades, etc, and she forgot her dress back home…it’s hanging outside her building! Does that help?!


  1. I love reading these Friday Fictioneers across WordPress. Your angle and voice are always unique and never disappoints! Although sometimes I’m screaming keep writing I want to know more!!


      1. Haaa you feel like I do about my ” lament” post. I love your writing. I don’t tell fibs Ms Bumble.


    1. What? It’s not your shade…well, I’m sure it would be something colorful, would it not?! 🙂 So far, I haven’t done this…at least a tux is easier to replace, but I’m not sure about a raspberry tux. I don’t think I’ve seen one…I hope she doesn’t have those at her wedding.


    1. Thanks, Joe! She was also thinking about the wine she spilled on her dress, and that’s why it was hanging outside her apartment….maybe a stretch… and I certainly could not get it in here! The bride will have a fit!


  2. Ohhh, no!! This reminds me of my maid of honor at my wedding–she showed up at my house the morning of the wedding with her dress, shoes, everything except the strapless bra she needed to wear with it. Fortunately it was just a matter of a cab ride to fetch it, rather than a plane ride. Poor Caroline. But I like your description of all the colors, Amy. Nice!


    1. Oh, thanks Madame. Thanks for reading, as always. It always means a lot to me. Not the bra…oh, those can so tricky and complicated with fancy dresses. One of my bridesmaids showed up without altering her dress. Oops forgot. It was okay that she was swimming in it! Whateves, I guess! You’re much too kind…I don’t think this is one of my better ones, but I always am glad I maket the effort.


Take it away.
