FAMOUS LAST WORDS

Jenny’s mind has been working overtime lately.  She just keeps coming up with new ways to make me fret over joining Saturday Centus.  This week, she has given us 100 words, plus the prompt, and our submission is to be solely dialogue!  Jenny, Jenny, Jenny, you sure love to challenge us!  The title of my contribution this week is Famous Last Words, and after writing this, I think this may end up being my “not-so-famous last words” submitted to Saturday Centus!

FAMOUS LAST WORDS

(Prompt:  Are you seriously ordering another martini?)

“If your boss doesn’t get here soon, you’re going to be drunk.  We need to eat something.”

“We’re not ordering food until Mister Johnson gets here. I don’t think it will make a very good impression on him if we’re already eating when he arrives.”

I don’t think it will make a good impression if you’re drunk when he arrives.”

“I promise you, he won’t even be able to tell I’ve had one martini.”

“I don’t think you know how drunk you are.”

“Uh-oh, I just realized my glass is empty.”

“Are you seriously ordering another martini?”

“Stop worrying about it.  I’m completely sober.”

“Ed, your idea of sober is not the same as mine.”

“Here he is now. Hello Mister Johnson.  You remember my wife, Darlene?”

“Oh No! Ed, Watch out!”

“I’m sure sorry about turning over the table when I stood to greet you, Mister Johnson.  Are your pants still wet?”

Thank you for coming to read  what may end up being my not-so-famous last words.  To read more dialogue about a martini, please visit Jenny Matlock Off On My Tangent.  Laurie

This scenario was so real, I could see it clearly. Things really begin to deteriorate when one has had "The Drink" that takes him from sober to stinking drunk. Great take!

Namaste...........cj

Great take on the prompt! I could really see everything happening. I feel bad for the poor wife and Mr. Johnson. The last line made me laugh.

Now I need to know- what happened to Ed's job?

Kat said...

I think your inner critic should probably shut up after this! Great use of the prompt, really well written - I cringed right along with Ed's wife! Kat

And yet another blow to the inner critic. Put the lid on the sugar bowl. He's done...

I had missed the previous one, too. I'm trying to at least get my READING groove back.

Deborah said...

Oh very good! :o)

Jenny said...

Ooooh...think of all the people clamoring for THAT job when they hear about the job opening - ha!

This was awesome.

Your dialogue was perfect. I read it out loud and it flowed beautifully.
