“The rule of thumb is no martini order skull be more difficult than calculus.” I explain to the bar maid.

Her glowing smile is a puzzle. Savory lips part as I spy the constellations in her eyes.

“How about our legendary martini?” she starts to move as if my choice had been made.

My eyes follow the dress made to look of woodcuts with irregular borders. I really don’t notice this color.

Her head turns back to catch my gaze.

Not weather vane needed to see a cold front moving toward me.

  1. intriguing indeed! It’s wonderful how you’ve taken these words and used them as a verbal exchange, the dialogue tipping the scales of limits, codes and secrets, and yet, with just enough of a “cold war” word play to create a fascinating repartee. I really liked the idea of a dress looking like a woodcut, with irregular borders – definitely inventive and distinctly pleasurable, in an odd way. Great job with this week’s wordle Mark 🙂 Thank you 🙂

    1. One of my favorite things to do is tell a story in just dialogue. You can fill in details subtly. I was going to use woodcuts as wallpaper but dragging her in them added a dynamic between them. Thank you very much. ☺
