Enter At Your Own Risk {Gargleblaster: Yeah Write}


You might be tempted to ask,

“of all the gin joints in all the world…”

but watch her stir her bourbon with her pointer finger instead.

Resistance is futile after all this time.

A word of warning;

She doesn’t own white hankies.




From Yeah Write’s Gargleblaster: 

This week we’re paying tribute to Gabriel García Márquez, who was (in our humble opinion) one of the greatest writers of the last century. This week’s ultimate question comes to us from One Hundred Years of Solitude:

“Tell me something, old friend: why are you fighting?”

  1. I like the opening of this… sets the scene nicely. Probably would be best to stay away, but with resistance being futile, it doesn’t look good :)

  5. I like her attitude. And “Enter At Your Own Risk” is wickedly funny. (I’m so sorry if you did not intend it that way. I have a dirty, dirty mind.)

  6. Love this take on the prompts. I could picture the scene in my mind–even with so few words. Excellent!

  9. I’ve come back to read this three times, each time avoiding a comment… there is nothing I could add to do this justice. I love every word, every line. The image of her stirring her drink with her finger is perfect.
