Arriving at the Hub later than usual, Tosh hurried to her workstation and turned her computers on. A few feet away at his own desk, Owen glanced up. “What happened, you oversleep?” he asked, then… “Did you do something to your hair? It looks really nice.”

Tosh had indeed just got her hair cut and styled; it had been getting too long, which could be a nuisance when you worked for Torchwood, and anyway the alien gunk that had got into it the previous evening had set solid, welding the ends on one side into a solid clump that wouldn’t wash out. Her only option had been to cut off the affected section, and she’d decided getting it done professionally was probably a better idea than trying to do it herself. She just hadn’t expected Owen of all people to notice.

“What do you want, Owen?” she sighed.


“Really? Usually you only compliment me when you need something.”

“I guess I do.” Owen smiled sheepishly. “There is one little thing you could do for me…”

‘Here it comes,’ thought Tosh. “What’s that?”

“Have dinner with me tonight?”

He sounded serious.

“That would be lovely.”

Owen grinned. “It’s a date.”

The End


Rich people live in a world of privilege. Take their money away and they'd be in for a huge shock. Those of us who don't have a lot help others whenever we can because we know someday we might be the ones needing a little extra help.
I bet most rich people don't know about buyer's remorse because of all that disposable money.

The closet I've seen rich or privileged people freak out over no money is when they're challenged as part of some reality TV show.

Yeah, and I bet they still don't learn from the experience =(
I know! It's like, what's the point if they don't learn from it. I know I try to when life gives me a crappy situation.
The rich and privileged often don't see the need to learn from experience. They think the rules don't apply to them.
There must be some truth to that saying that "money can't buy you happiness". Rich people can still find something to complain about.:(
Yeah, rich people are seldom satisfied with what they've got. They want more.
I guess ABBA's song about money isn't funny after all. Too bad though.

Yeah, I guess it's more the peculiar kind of funny. Rich people are weird.
Well, songs about money aren't written from a rich persons perspective. If there was one, I bet it wouldn't be a hit. Complaining about money? Please!*puts hands up in mock surrender*
I always have money worries and complaints. Only the wealthy can afford not to.
I know what you mean in some ways.

Veronica Mars : Oh, I am so sick of not having money. I'd be the best rich person. Seriously. I'd be the perfect combination of frivolous and sensible. Money is so wasted on the wealthy.
That's so true! Wealthy people have way more money than they need. =(
Yes. Sharing is caring but most don't see it that way.

Sad but true. There are a few wealthy people who do good things, but most just don't care.
