He said he was an old acquaintance. She didn’t want to offend him, but he’d certainly been forgot. (98)

He’d overheard a friend call her by name. Now he smiled as she struggled to remember his. (91)

His nose looked like Pinocchio’s. Was he lying? She could tell him to leave, but who wants to be alone on New Year’s Eve? (123)

By the time the clock struck twelve, they felt like old acquaintance. (70)

Wishing all a happy and safe evening and a very Happy New Year!

    Took me a while to find the meme when I realized I had your submission but not the linky. Now to get busy and write something.
    Meanwhile, wishing you and Calico and Miss Muffin all the best the new year has to offer.

    Ahh,…four cute vignettes of strangers in the night…looking for love and companionship. The first one made me chuckle the most! Happy New Year, Grandma, and may 2013 be better than we expect it to be!
