Romance Is In Your Future by Mary Jo Young
Tagline: Rosalyn was interested in getting to know Hugh better..and little did she know that he felt the same!
Woman's World Tropes: Couldn't find any.
Observations: I liked this story a lot better than last week's story by Young. I remember a story about a Halloween carnival fortune teller, but it was so many years ago, this story felt fresh.
Anyone who has ever worked or volunteered at a school knows the cafeteria lady is always referred do as the cafeteria lady, so that rang true for me and gave me a chuckle.
I liked Rosalyn's spunky attitude here:
But she was just the "cafeteria lady" with the ponytail and shapeless uniform. Hardly competition for the cute English teacher or the girls' PE coach who ran around in shorts all day.
And then later there was this little bit when she was "telling his fortune..."
"I am beginning to get a picture of someone."
"Not the English teacher who likes to correct my grammar," Hugh warned, "or the girls' PE coach with that infernal whistle around her neck."
I thought that was cute and clever how Hugh unknowingly countered her self-doubt.
