For the Writers Group homework we had this time a couple of proverbs and quotes.
I chose “Don`t die with a bottle of champagne in the fridge”.
Your coldness hurts so much
I am freezing to death in summer
Champagne in the fridge
I thought you are special
You want to celebrate
your biggest success
icecold negleckting all my needs
I don`t want to die
with champagne still in the fridge
but your insults burn
I answer aggressively
:”Let`s keep the champagne in the fridge
and simply die in dignity!”
I was wondering if its ending is too harsh. You say such things in a fight and afterwards regrett it. “Let`s talk about this later and simply split up civilized” wouldn`t be me though and wouldn`t be poetic.
This evening I feel like enjoying Amaretto not like icy Champagne.
We laughed a lot at our writers meeting. I especially liked how “seductively” Mike guestread the role of an escort, who was described wearing hardly anything saying “That would be nice” to the offered Champagne.
And great news! A footnote told us that the wharf theatre will play Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett end of October.
