KITSCH

Can a person be kitsch?

He’s sweet, but he wears trouser braces with a garish shirt and hat and brightly coloured cords.

I give him a chance, but then he invites me back to his and I see the living room…

1970s mustard-orange decor and chintzy lamps, and I’m out.

‘I’ll be off,’ I say.

‘Not yet,’ he says.

Even the knife has a an ornate china handle. Yuck.


Written for the Weekend Writing Prompt, hosted byย SammiScribbles. This weekโ€™s prompt was: Kitsch. Click on the link to read more stories by other writers.


For those who haven’t yet read my trilogy of novels, The State Trilogy is now available on Amazon in one collected volume on Kindle and in paperback. Three books in one (with a modest saving compared to buying them all individually!).
