BLURB :

When newly-single party girl Vicki moved to Paris, she was hoping to indulge in wine, stuff her face with croissants, and fall in love. It proved to be much moredifficile than she’d imagined. In this laugh-out-loud memoir, this cheeky storyteller recounts the highs and lows of her life in the City of Light. Sassy and shamefully honest, Vicki makes you feel as if you’re right there in Paris stumbling along the cobblestones with her.

 Will she find love? Will she learn to consume reasonable amounts of alcohol? Will the French administration ever cut her a break?

 

As I descended the stairs to the platform, a train was already at the quai, its open doors beckoning me. If I hurried, I could make it before they closed. Except that I don’t like to run down stairs (stairs are cousins to bleachers and we know how much I like bleachers). Plus even if I made it to the doors in time, it didn’t guarantee I’d make it through the doors in time.

I decided to take the steps at a leisurely pace and wait on the platform for the next train.

Only problem, this stubborn train wouldn’t leave the station! The open doors taunted me. “You can do it,” they said. “Or are you too chicken?”

I felt stupid just standing on the platform, but was paralyzed with the fear that if I made a dash for the train, that would be the moment the doors chose to slam on my head.

Which is more embarrassing—staying on the platform when the doors are still open and everyone’s wondering why you won’t get in, or getting stuck in the doors?

I solved my dilemma by doing both.

After remaining on the quai long enough to look like an idiot, I figured I might as well hop on the train. I covered the distance at a pace brisk enough to get my long blonde hair swinging, and cleared the doors right as they were closing. Whew, that was close.

All eyes were on me, no doubt wondering what took me so long to take the plunge. I looked for an open seat, anxious to get out of everyone’s line of sight. I took a step and was rudely yanked back. “What the…?”

My hair was stuck in the doors!

About Cristina

I started this blog for quite a few reasons: 1. To share my opinions about books I read. (I'm open to recommendations) 2. To express myself in the only way that I love,which is of course writing 3. To connect with people with whom I may share the same interests I read and write because it offers me an escape door from the world we live in. A door which allows me to be whomever I want to be, live wherever in this big world,set off on adventures and most of all because it brings my imagination back to life from its very very long sleep. And of course...Because I love to !! Here are some basic things about your host and writer.. My name is Cristina and I come from Bucharest ( also known as The Little Paris ) were I was born, raised and am currently - still - living. I’ve finished my studies a few years ago and got my bachelor degree at Dimitrie Cantemir University, in my hometown; in Economics. I have to admit that this specialty wasn't my first choice. I have been weighing my choices – as in, to what they can provide me in future – both while I was still in high school and after. Initially I wanted to go to Foreign Languages, but I had a big fall the moment I saw that it wasn't acredited – huge disappointment washed over me. I am still a bit disappointed about that to be honest. I have a huge passion for writing ever since I was little, and even if I had times when I didn't (or couldn't) write anything, now I am right back on track. My dad is the only one who knows how much passion I put into what I write and doesn't giggle or grin when I bring it up. I love having someone’s support no matter how little it is,it still means so much to me. Love, Cris ♥ Hope that those who will follow me like what I post around here and - why not - maybe give some ideas about new topics. :) If anyone wants to add something on the blog please contact me at cristinacryss0@gmail.com
