Dinner Theatah: A Magpie Tale

Oh, for the love of all that is holy, why do I put up with this crap?
Last month, for my birthday, it was Mariachis and a giant sombrero.
I guess that was just to warm me up for the Really Important stuff.
"Of course I would love to go to the park on Sunday and cheer you on while you practise swordplay"

It is called Sarcasm:  look it up!  Seriously,  buy a clue, would you?
A  bit part in the local community theater production of Shakespeare does not make you a Master Thespian
Neither does scooping up horse poop during intermission at Medieval Times
You work at Best Buy for crying out loud
And the only reason I agreed to this date was so you would get me that plasma TV on discount

Hey, thanks for everything but I really gotta bounce.

I like the voice in this one. Really adds personality to the young woman, who seems a little nervous at best. But you use your imagination well and tap into the irony of the situation. I also like the contemporary spin on the story you invented. That will always reach your readers, and I could certainly appreciate it. Loved the part about the plasma tv. :)
