For the first time in ages, I didn’t feel like writing a thing, today.
However, I still wanted to, even if the spark appeared to be missing. I ended up buying one of those disgusting energy drinks at the grocery store hoping for the caffeine to kick in somehow, and then all sorts of English proverbs came to mind for some reason. From the curious combination of these elements, the story below came to be. Enjoy.
“What goes up must come down,” Alice said.
“It’s already down,” Tom replied, empty glass in hand.
“Good things come to those who wait…” she winked.
“Wait for what exactly?”
His sudden dizziness said it all. The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. The way to his mind is a spiked cocktail.
