Intimate – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

After a nice, intimate dinner at an upscale restaurant, he took her to an intimate location in the park, far away from any crowds, where he dropped to one knee and held out a ring. Her gasp of surprise and huge smile after his question was enough to intimate her acceptance.

Host – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

Alan stood on the stage and stared out at the host of revelers who’d come out for the party. Once again he wondered why he’d agreed to host the huge shindig and idly wondered if he’d inadvertently become host to a parasite that’d made its home in his brain and affected his decision-making skills.

D’oh Boys – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

stream-of-consciousness-saturday-2018-19

 

 

“Hey, Eddie!” called Mickey as he entered the kitchen. “I’m here!”

“Oh, hey!” Eddie replied from where he stood by the counter, surrounded by bottles of spices, bowls of sauce and toppings, an empty Pillsbury can, and a can of beer.  “Come here! Check this out!”

Eddie stepped away from the counter and looked at Mickey. In his hands was a wad of dough. Mickey watched as Eddie flattened it out in his hands, then started tossing it up in the air like he’d seen pizza chefs do in videos.

“Awesome!” Mickey said as the pizza crust dough got larger and flatter. “Hey! Maybe you could start a pizza restaurant. You’d be rolling in the dough! Ha ha!”

Eddie laughed but lost his concentration and dropped the dough. “D’oh!” he exclaimed as he stared at the mess on the floor.

“No biggie,” said Mickey. “Just grab another one and start again.”

“That was all the dough I had. Guess we’ll just have to eat the doughnuts you brought instead.”

“D’oh!” Mickey exclaimed as he slapped his forehead.

“What?”

“I got so excited at the thought of you making pizza, I forgot to bring the doughnuts.”

Eddie frowned. “Then I guess we know who’s ordering pizza,” he said as he tossed Mickey his cell phone. He then grabbed his can of beer and headed out of the kitchen, saying, “I’ll go put the game on.”

Gall – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

He couldn’t believe she’d had the gall to do something like that and then just walk away like it was nothing, but as he watched her leave, he couldn’t help but also find the boldness of her action impressive, even though it had galled him.

Once A Critic… – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

stream-of-consciousness-saturday-2018-19

 

 

Trish and Eric sat in the theater, sharing a bucket of popcorn while watching a movie. The movie had already been out for a while, so the theater wasn’t very crowded. There were only a handful of people there besides them. They took seats near the front.

The date had been going fairly well so far, and she had been looking forward to seeing this movie.

Trish tried her best to enjoy the movie, but Eric kept muttering comments. He complained about a variety of things, such as acting performance, special effects, plot holes and gaffes in continuity. It quickly started to get on her nerves, and she found herself rolling her eyes a lot and not able to focus her attention on the movie.

Eventually, she said to him, “Can you please stop being so critical of the movie? It’s making it hard for me to enjoy it.”

“Sorry,” he told her. “I guess I just can’t help it. Old habits, and all that. I used to work as a movie critic, you know.”

As she debated whether to stay to finish the movie, Trish promised herself to not go on any more blind dates and to give her friend Kelly an earful later for setting her up on this one.
