Of Apples and Oranges

24 Apr

Česky: Jablka jsou všeamericky úspěšná potravi...

Her tongue darted around the crevices of her mouth trying to dislodge the almonds that got wedged between gaped teeth. A finger finished off the last remnants; she looked at the morsel, and popped it back into her mouth. I thought she was totally gross for doing that, but then I caught myself doing the same thing last night – just with potato chips.

Please tell me potato chips are worthier for such treatment than almonds. Because I can’t be like her, can’t have the same mannerisms and rationale. It’s a good thing it wasn’t apples either of us were eating, because then even I’d feel the irony of “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree”.

    Thank you – I really appreciate it. I have a complex about my writing, so it’s always nice to here something good about it.

    Oy vey! These are the characters I am writing in my manuscript! You’ve got the tension in one tight paragraph. Can I have it? 😉

    Just kidding.

    Thanks for visiting my place today! And for your knowledge.
