flash fiction friday #22

courtesy sterling henderson, flash fiction friday #22 (starter) trigger: when i drink...
please reread recently revised rules of engagement, below.
rules of engagement:
you will send in your suggestions for flash fiction friday triggers (starter sentences/phrases, closers, titles, inclusions, etc.) anytime during the week up to 11.55a.m. friday, trinbago timezone; i will post the new fff trigger by noon friday trinbago timezone.*
if your trigger is not chosen and you think it is too brilliant not to be chosen, you will send it in again the next week.
you will write an anecdote, short story, or novel length prose poem using the trigger provided.
you will add comments and appropriate linkage to my trigger-post indicating your desire to participate and the completion of your piece (don't need a blogger/gmail account to comment on my blog).
you may join in at any time prior to the deadline.*
you will display your piece as a post on your own blog (or as a comment on my trigger-post or fasbook note or whatever, once we can all read it- please make sure we can all access the link to read it, not just those who are your friends on fasbook; there's a way to create public links for that, right?).
you will be done by monday noon trinbago timezone.*[in light of collective busyness and my general mentality, i not pressed about these deadlines 'cause i'd rather have fun reading late than never, so if you want to fff past deadline, go through hard, just make sure you comment on the appropriate trigger-post so we know which it belongs to, and if is a real old trigger, comment on the most recent post as well so we know something new to back-back+read...if nobody fffs i'll leave the same trigger up until at least 1person other than myself writes a piece]*
write fresh!
walk good.

When i drink...
I forget that i am not supposed to feel this at ease in your company
When i drink...
My hands and tongue forget their manners and find their way into those secret places you always tell me to avoid when we are in public
When i drink...
Time, space and venue no longer matter, as all i can focus on is your sweeeeeeet breath whispering all the things i usually ignore, well you know, except for when i drink...
When i drink...
I am no longer the lady my family invested countless hours and care raising and i am instead your woman, whose only desire is to please every inch of you...oh yes... especially those 9 *cough* ok 9 and a half that run from the small of your back to just above your neckline that drives you crazy with the lightest of touches
When i drink...
The rules of morality no longer apply, not for you, and not for me
And this is why, when i drink i make sure that i can only see you in my mind's eye...

Mmmmmm...oooh look at the time, i think it's time for my...drink ;)
