More than the title of a song, Love Me Two Times is the plea of Paul Barry.
Mary and Marion Simpson are not twins, but they share more that they are willing to admit. A blind date blossoms into a full relation ship that includes marriage, after a fashion. The old adage of “love conquers all” is seriously put to the test as Paul falls for both Mary and Marion until he realizes that they are only one woman suffering from Multiple Personality Disorder.
I hate first dates. I had my share of them before I got married. After my divorce, a colleague named Allan Dobson had been a long time on my case trying to set me up. I finally caved in, but sitting at the bar, I felt cold feet and longed to cancel the whole thing.
The bartender appeared from thin air. “Good evening. The usual Miller?” With an elegant, almost graceful move, he placed a napkin in front of me.
“Evening John. Not tonight, thanks,” I said and considered my drinking options. I ached to order a beer, but thought it might give the wrong impression. Not classy enough for a first date.
I made up my mind and placed my order. “Get me a Vodka Martini, please.” It took every ounce of self-control to restrain myself from adding “shaken, not stirred.”
“Of course,” the bartender said and went off to prepare my drink.
I made my plan: finish my Martini and then call it a night. I felt certain Erich would not mind over last-minute cancellation. In the middle of piecing together my excuses to restaurant owner, I felt a soft tap on my shoulder. I turned to see a set of light brown eyes looking back at me.
