Saturday Centus - True Love?

In honor of week 60 of Saturday Centus, Jenny Matlock has a special challenge.

Write a story of no more than 60 words, not including the two-word title.

This week's title is DEAR JOHN. To see how you can join the fun and link to other stories, visit Jenny's blog.
Here's my 60-word story:

Dear John,


In the past you’ve been unfaithful. I’ve overlooked your dalliances and forgiven you.


Last night I met someone else.


He is tall, dark, and handsome and swore his undying devotion--to me!


No more jealous quarrels or lonely nights.


I’ve found my soul mate, the man who'll love me the rest of my days.


His name--Don Juan.

  1. True love at last!

    Or should I have said "Good luck with that!"?

  2. Hey June,
    Thanks for your comment.

    When it comes to love, some folks are blind; others are just plain stupid. I think our letter writer falls into the latter category.

  10. If a gal's going to be with a womanizer, she might as well go for the sexiest one around.
    This was a very enjoyable centus and not your typical "Dear John" letter.

  13. Loved the cute twist at the end! Maybe she'll learn to write a Dear Don Juan letter next time and then settle with someone who can't read.

    Hi Jeff,
    Good question.

    Hi Judie,
    I think I dated that guy, too.

    Hi Bookie,
    Ah, it's true love is blind.

    Hi Rawkynrobyn,
    You got it. Go for the gold!

    Hi Jo,
    Some people never learn.
