55 Flash Fiction Friday - Ladies Man - 7/18/08

I hadn't written one of these in a while. The challenge here is to tell a story using only 55 words. Try it. It is not as easy as it sounds. This one is about a guy we all know.

The club was emptying. Women that caught his eye were paired with someone. As the cliché promised, his hesitation had caused him to lose. Even through beer goggles, she was substandard, but, any port in a storm. He approached her confidently. “How would you like to dance?” She sized him up, “No thanks” she sneered.
