Click your heals Dorothy i want to go home to Kansa

Take on board this as a potential movie script that will never get made Of a traveling advertising salesman visiting Kansas City named Chris Who endeared himself to the young lady hotel bar-keeper called Laura he was staying at Fast forward to day 2 after chatting casual musings between tender and customer And an initial friendship struck up This is where the conversation went So where are you from Chris I'm from Liverpool Laura Oh where the Beatles are from ? Yip the very same one So how long are you still here for ? Only another 2 day's i leave Saturday My shift finishes tomorrow at 6pm If your not doing anything and you want i'll show you around the city if you want ? That's very kind of you Laura thank you but i'm sure you have something better to do than show me around Honestly i don't mind and you seem like a nice person Ok then cheers So what would you like to do or see then ? We'll the least i can do is take you out for dinner Where is the best place to get a steak here ? And the rest i'll leave up to you it's your home town after all The next day during dinner I have to say great choice this steak is unbelievable So what is your story Laura ? What do you mean ? Well you know a bit about me But how come a nice young girl like you is out spending your friday night with me ? Well if you really want to know i have just been diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor and i have been given 6 month's to live So i am trying to spend my remaining time left doing things i would never normally do So here i am , Sorry Wow That i was not expecting I don't quite know exactly what to say or do with that
