MLMM Photo Challenge #450

Sarah is our host and has provided one of her own pictures this week.
It was like something out of The Matrix, only this time it was a cocktail, not a pill.
Steph didn’t know which to choose. Whatever she didn’t, Pete would have. He insisted it was her first pick.
‘What’s in them?’ she asked.
‘Fruit juice, lemonade, ice, and a secret ingredient.’
‘And what might that be?’
‘Not telling. Now, which would you like?’
‘Can I sniff them?’
Pete laughed.
‘No you can’t!’
‘Can I at least swirl the glass?’
‘Only after you decide which one to have.’
He had that devilish twinkle in his eye and she knew something was amiss.
He put both drinks on the table and stood back.
Steph stepped back too, uncertain, and then she saw it.
‘I’ll have the pink one!’
‘I thought you might,’ and handed her the glass.
Steph dunked in her finger and pulled out the diamond ring.
‘The drink that will change your life. Will you?’
‘YES!!!!!!’ she screeched which made all heads turn in her direction.
‘Finally,’ her mother said with a sigh.


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.
