Tale Weaver – # 250 – Cup – 21st November

Michael’s challenge:

The word ‘cup’ is synonymous with everyday life.

We start the day with a cuppa…..we compete for the cup as a prize…..we sometimes say our cup runneth over…..in cooking we add a cup of this and or that….we even at times cup our hands around something…

This week create a story in which the word ‘cup’ features. What associations do you have with it?

I’m reblogging part of a post I did way back in February 2017 as it fits the bill perfectly for Michael’s challenge this week.

The management had taken him on and he now held a key position in the Residential Cocktail Lounge.
He just needed to invent a Signature Cocktail and the world would be his oyster.
He spied her across the room, the trophy wife always making sly innuendos out of earshot of her sugar daddy husband.
Her dress, or lack of it, consisted of a bejewelled brassiere under a transparent chiffon haze leaving nothing to the imagination.
Making professional small talk, he threw a shot of half a dozen spirits into a shaker, added ice and a slither of mint, then shook it expertly.
Coating the rim of a cocktail glass with sugar and lemon juice, he poured the frothy concoction over 2 olives and watched it bubble.
She sipped.
‘Wow! This packs a kick. What do you call it?
‘Storm in a D Cup’ he replied with a straight face.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
