Flash in the Pan


The taxi ride back the hotel exacerbated the nausea. Her stomach felt like it was full of stampeding gazelle, all horns and sharp hooves.

“Honey, if I had known you were allergic to curry, we never would have gone there.”

Between stomach-churning belches and scratching the hives, she glared. “You wonder why I am having reservations about marrying you?”

  5. Perfectly funny use of reservations! Would that more of us had reservations about marriage, just think how many attorneys would be out of work.

    • I think we should start a movement to threaten the job security of attorneys the world over. An excellent suggestion! <3

  6. I’d have reservations too! Ha ha. I especially like the horns and hooves in action. Poor thing.

    OMG. I hadn’t noticed the theme. Where has my head been?
