The definition of flirting

March 6, 2009

“I’m an incorrigible optimist sometimes,” he said. “An incorrigible flirt other times.”

“The two are not entirely incompatible, you realize,” I said. “Flirting is, after all, essentially an expression of incorrigible optimism.”


  1. I realize it’s completely inappropriate, but somehow I find myself wanting (from time to time) some or more sex in these small stories.

  2. Well, Orpheus, isn’t that one of the ways one can define good writing? It leaves you wanting more?

  3. Oh, Genie, that’s becoming too philosophical for me :)

    Anyway, when you get right down to it, it was absurd of me to have asked you to put something in your writing that wasn’t there. On the other hand, I now think there is maybe a tiny bit of sex in these stories (on occasion), but it seems to be only alluded to; you never actually explicitly mention it, at least not that I can recall.
