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 ,
That i was not expecting
I don't quite know exactly what to say or do with that
