Mullberry Whine

poured out before bed

Pick-up Line

…line ’em up, knock ’em back (Ensure Product Line Up 2012, by ScottStoffe)…

“Well, I’ve got Clark Gable’s tan – but only on my neck.”

His speech is slurred by a massive, semi-fixed tongue, the product of inoperable oropharyngeal cancer and edema from radiation therapy, but his smile, framed by a too angular jaw and marked temporal wasting, is clear and bright.

“And this trouble with talking – it’s really crippling my attempts to pick up single women.”  Cheekily he raises an unruly salt and pepper eyebrow.

I lean in and mirror his eyebrow cheekiness.

“What about the married ones?” I ask.

“Ah, I haven’t tried yet.  Say, you’re a married gal…  Join me for an Ensure after work?”

Keep it clean, keep it respectful, or keep away.
