“Just blow in the tube, ma’am.” The deputy was certain she was intoxicated. This would be his eighth arrest this week.
The shrill sound indicated the machine had a large enough sample. She giggled. “That has to be the quickest blow job in history.”
Martinez rolled his eyes. He had heard it so often. How can this be? All zeroes.
Charlotte beamed. “I told you I was not drunk.”
“The Breathalyzer doesn’t register narcotics, ma’am.”
“Blood or urine? No worries. The only thing in my system is unadulterated love. That’s not illegal now, is it?”
“Not yet, ma’am.”
Welcome to the last month of this quarter’s Flash in the Pan. March has a word limit of 100, and this exchange blows a 98, just under the legal limit. The word for the week is intoxicated.
Click on the picture to check out the flashers who got ahead and have already posted their entries for intoxicated. All entries have to be in by 31MAR13 for this edition of Flash in the Pan.

Do you have a better line than Charlotte about the Breathalyzer? Have you ever been delirious with emotion? Did it affect your balance or driving?
