“Our best twelve-year old Beaujolais. I will open and decant it for you.”

“Nothing’s too good for my baby’s birthday, right Doll?”

Simone stabbed her pouty lips with blood red lipstick, white teeth perfect as Chiclets, and fluttered her spidery eyelashes.

“Try it, sir?”

“Tastes… this is corked. Yech.”

“Sir, this wine tastes fine—”

“Anybody know anything about wine here?”

I’m the sommelier…”

“This is crap.”

“Might I suggest something else?”

“Let’s go!”

“Jack?”

Author: Let's CUT the Crap!

I'm getting a little LONG in the tooth and have things to say about---ouch---AGEing. I believe it's certainly a state of mind but sometimes it's nice to hear that you're NORMAL. I enjoy reading by the truckload. I'm a grandma but I don't feel OLD although I'm not so young anymore. My plan is to stick it out as long as I can on this lovely planet and only will leave it kicking and screaming!

  2. Another good one; and again didn’t see it coming. Her Chiclet’s white teeth, is right up there with the waitress waving a curl in her hair (paraphrase). The best part is the ending made me laugh.

  4. Jack obviously didn’t like the wine, Tess! At least he didn’t waste any time either!

  5. Jack is clearly looking for a twist top bottle, he didn’t like the cork. What a neophyte.

    Very good one Tess.
