In Vino Veritas :Short fiction contest
July 9, 2009Posted by on
Jason Evans is doing a great job. Of nurturing writing talent by organising superb contests on his hugely popular blog where each participant has to write a story/poem within 250 words. The the inspiration behind the write up should be the picture that Jason provides on his blog.
My gal took part in the contest few months back and this time i decided to give her some competition. 🙂
Here’s my take on the pic:
In Vino Veritas
“How was your day?”
“Great…I went shopping! I have to tell you about this sale at Stacy’s.”
“Good…but keep a watch on your spending habits, baby.”
“I can manage…you don’t have to worry…I called you twice in the morning…”
“Ya…had a long meeting with Mark. Did I tell you about the new project? ”
“Sir, here’s your order…have a nice evening!”
“How many times do I have to tell you, it’s not supposed to be had that way”, Judi grunted.
“Okay. Chill…what’s the big fuss about? Anyway, I don’t like coming to these fancy restaurants and shelling out money as if I have just won a lottery”, Randy retorted. “A beer does the trick for me…plus I feel more being myself with a mug”.
“Who are you now, then?” Judi snapped back.
“I am some guy sipping a garish drink who is pretending to be classy with a ‘taste’ for anything expensive”.
“Oh come on! It’s divine! What’s wrong in having taste for good things in life? A beer makes you bloated and dumb. Wine is for the sophisticated.”
“I love it when you do that.”
“Oh! My darling Jane…”
“Whhaa…I knew it wasn’t meant to be…Fuck off Randy!”
