I figured, if I’m not selling much on this shop, I could at least have some fun writing. And writing can be fun. If you are in a good mood. Even if you are not, it may take you there. So, while I wait for someone to purchase something from my shop (for instance – a cute smartphone case), I thought I’d exercise some screenplay writing. You see, there was a time in my life when I wanted to be a screenplay writer. And since the blog post needs to be about the stuff I sell here, I figured I’d come up with 10 movie screenplay dialogs adapted to fit the cat illustrations. It is a typical man and a woman in a bar scene.
How and why?
Designs, symbols, drawings/shapes and colors of our smartphone cases are saying more about us than we’d like to admit. When people meet us, especially when they see us for the first time, their opinion about us is based, among other factors, on our appearance. And the moment we pull out our smartphone, our smartphone case becomes a part of our appearance.
I know, sounds funny, but it’s true. Just think about it for a second.
Let’s say your smartphone case is black. Just pure black. My husband has one like this. What message is he sending? “Leave me alone, ask me nothing, I’m not saying anything.” If he had, say, a pink one, his message would be “I’m a girly man.” or “I have an unconventional sense of humor. Let’s make fun out of my smartphone case.” If it was red, his message would be … “I’m color-blind.”. 😀
Cool smartphone cases may be a nice icebreaker in the conversation as well.
So, imagine this. In a bar. Two strangers. He is looking for a opening line, but “Can I buy you a drink?” is just so 80’s. (Not to mention “Do you come here often?“).
So, without any further ado, let me present you with my selection of 10 cute smartphone cases with cat illustrations accompanied with some opening line ideas for men. Except for the first one. I just couldn’t come up with anything for the first one so feel free to throw some ideas. 😀
Art Nouveau was always one of my favorite artistic styles and this case is one fine example of classical Art Nouveau style. It is simple, but still illustrates, very nicely, the magic and mystery of a black cat. This is a perfect selection for fine art and cat lovers. As I said, I could not come up with any meaningful dialogue for this one.
This for those of us who just feel – cool. Like celebrities. Hiding these “partied all night” eye-bags behind the 50’s style sun glasses. For sure, this is for cool ones.
This is the only cat (in this selection) with a name. Obviously, the name is “Lucky” and just one look at her is enough to bring a smile on your face.
So, I think I’ve exhausted my daily screenplay practice. Still a lot to learn, but, well, I’m in no rush. We’ll see what happens first. Someone makes a purchase or I complete the whole movie screenplay 😀
Love you all and see you soon!
