A young man becomes the subject of a contentious conversation between Felicity and Ruth. They have different impressions about the man´s character. The question is whether both girls have the right end of the stick. An intriguing short story with a twist – “Contemporary, witty, honest and ironic”.
Felicity; is an American girl who seems to be outgoing, with a personality that’s larger than life and, a thirst for experiencing new things. Ruth is an English lass, who seems less confident and less interested in really living life to its fullest. In short: two very different girls.
I think I failed at finding the witty parts or maybe, it was just completely lost on me. To me this read as a superficial lunch date between two friends. But in all honesty, it doesn’t even really read like they are friends. That’s how forced their conversations read to me. The conversations didn’t really have a natural flow. Maybe I’m just different, but I’ve never talked with my friends like that when we catch up. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for a Sex & the City brunch date where we lay it all on the table. But the words used by Felicity and Ruth just didn’t ring true to me. In my experience girl talks can get wildly out of control, especially when we’re really into the what we’re discussing. So, I don’t know if Ruth and Felicity were just more distanced or what it is, but they didn’t really seem to be that into their own conversations.
While the girls are at the café this guy walks by them, Felicity recognises him as Mason whereas Ruth knows him as Sam. Different names but they realise that they’ve both been dating him. For Felicity is was a great experience but for Ruth it wasn’t so much fun, especially not when he just stopped contacting her.
In the end Ruth runs into the guy while she’s waiting for the Tube and, it turns out he’s neither her Sam nor Felicitiy’s Mason. He’s Jason – Sam’s identical twin brother. That part did make me laugh, like taken right out of Barney Stinson’s Playbook.
