Thoughts are with fellow Fictioneer, Ted, this week, as he recovers from a recent stroke. I know loving family are with you, Ted, and you can be sure your fans are cheering you on from near and far.
Maggie and Bill
Maggie’s your typical glass half-empty sorta girl. She looks at a cloud and sees rain. Bill’s the opposite. He’s always busy admiring the silver linings. You might not think them well-suited that way, but it works. She packs the umbrella for them to shelter under when it rains; he brings a picnic they can share on the beach… or in the car, if it turns out she’s right.
She’s often right, of course, but he finds the silver lining in that too, because she enjoys being right more than he minds being wrong, and isn’t that a recipe for love?

What a fun recipe for love. I can see a whole algorithm built around it. And an industry around that
I think someone’s beaten you to it, Neil, but I think there’s definitely love in accepting each other’s foibles
hey they may be different but at least they’re compatible
Exactly. Bending to our loved ones’ foibles is a true sign of love
If they are both content with the arrangement more power to them.
A lovely look at opposites attracting. Well done.
Sounds like a good match. 😉 My husband’s the one who always packs the umbrella. Nicely written story.
Thanks Rochelle, I imagine this sort of match works better than if both are pessimists! At least someone’s bringing sunscreen 😉
That sounds ideal to me. There’s nothing worse than a glass overflowing!
Gosh, I’m not even sure how overflowing fits into the full/empty dichotomy!
Well, now, they do say that opposites attract. Great Story this week. Have a safe one!
That’s such a positive story. Love it.
Thanks, Jenne. I think love finds a way, at least for these two
Lovely story, if only more people would follow this pattern in life
His rather than hers, perhaps, but perhaps she is generous in other ways.
I love this piece! Very sweet yet packed with truth. You nailed it!
I love your concluding paragraph; a truth beautifully presented!
So it seems. Although I hope Maggie has her good qualities too.
Oh how lovely. Well suited to each other. A nice little story.
Thanks Laurie. It seems I’m in a romantic mood at the moment. The longer piece I’m working on is a romance too
It seems they’ll have a bright future, even on those cloudy days.
Aww, let’s hope so
Sweet story, they seem to be made for each other.
