      Saffron is an amazing spice and a beautiful color.

    Oops.. When I saw the title I thought more of a dinner with a huge bill, rather than Bill 😛 Good on you, looking forward to the rest of the story 😉

      Angela, as you know from your site (Chasing the Unexpected) – the unexpected is what usually occurs. *grin*
      The story with Bill is most likely at a close, a short story indeed, but there are so many more out there to create, right? *laugh*
      Thanks for stopping by and happy to hear you enjoyed Dinner with Bill

      NVR, Thanks for stopping by.
      No telling what 2013 will bring –
      I’ll definitely leave space in the margins. :-)

  2. ah the delights of dining alone, never a dull moment, never a moment of no eyes on you 😉

      Tasha, you speak the truth. Dining, traveling solo – Think the single number lends itself to approachability.
      Comes back around to a phenomena I call Festival Friends

    Yes, I am definitely one for the imagination too. It’s definitely necessary to have a handful of encounters that weren’t pursued. Much more romantic!

      Colleen you’re so wise. As it is, we can all remain in a state of blissful infatuation.
      Some things in life are perfect as notes in the margins.
      Here’s to finding space in those margins – throughout 2013.

    I’m glad that you enjoyed your dinner and the company, a shame there will not be a part 2.

      Sequels often foster disenchantment but they can also introduce more interesting characters or a better cast list.
      We’ll have to wait and see. 😉

    I love those moments while traveling! Almost better when they end like that, so you can let your imagination go…

      Abby you hit the nail on the head – far better to let the intrigue roll. :-)
      Btw, enjoyed your recent post on your ‘notoriously bad’ driving and hitting the pro track in Vegas. Good stuff

    I concur with the others… great trailer, but what about the movie?

      Thanks for stopping by Jeff and sadly, there won’t be a feature film or even a short of this… Bill is legally bound to someone else.

    Aww, I’m sad reading the comments. I was hoping for more Bill in the future!

    Saffron is really luxe! Bill sounds like good company. And what a great memory to have.

      Callie, like the way you think, but alas… Bill belongs to someone else. Should ask if he has a single brother *laugh*

      Ali, murphy’s law was well at play… Bill is married.
      I’ll have to find out if he has a single brother. *naughty grin*

    Love this! Felt like I was right there with you! Like the phrase ‘a cocoon of deep saffron’. Well done!

      Thanks Lisa, love it when readers can relate and it was the most amazing hue, all through the dining room – created an environment to linger in.
