After therapy, I follow Dr. Sims’ advice and take myself out on a date.
“Ask yourself why you choose to live in fantasy,” her words echo.
When the waiter comes to take my order, he asks if anyone will be joining.
I consider saying yes, but more pathetic than eating at a restaurant alone is being stood up by a date who doesn’t exist. And it doesn’t cure my ADHD—attention-deficit/hyperactive daydreaming.
Okay, that’s not a real diagnosis, but it was enough to get me an appointment with Dr. Sims.
And, as the waiter sits across from me, possibly…a date?

It’s StoryADay May! I’m not promising that I will write a story every day this month, but I’m going to try. Today’s prompt is simply to write a 100-word story. I had another story in mind for my Therapy Sessions series, but that one is much longer than 100 words. Maybe I’ll post it tomorrow or at a later date. For now, say hello to our newest character, Sabine!
