Just 100 words: can you do it?

Something I don't usually do is continue the story. But this week's word is 'elan' which means energy, style, confidence, panache. I immediately saw the character of Denny, from my last Drabble Promises going confidently about his life despite his blood lust, or maybe because of it.

Denny put the dog on the bun and handed it to the officer. "Condiments to your left. Help yourself to the potato salad."
"No. Thank you. This will do. We still haven't located your wife." Officer Demetri said as he added onions and mustard to his hot dog. "You did all this work yourself?" He surveyed the new patio. "Damn lot of concrete."
"The professionals did that. I just watched with a beer in hand." Denny laughed. "Janet left me a 'to do list. I expected her back before I finished. I guess she's having too much fun down under."

  1. Ooooo, very clever, over-confident?

  2. lol down under and not coming back

  3. HA! "Down under," indeed.

    You mentioned the word "panache," which reminds me of something that occurred in our family years ago. We were having dinner in a local seafood restaurant, and my hubby had ordered a rather sizable amount of crab legs as his meal. The rest of us ordered whatever, and had finished, but he was still savoring his legs. I made a smart-ass comment about how he was eating with "panache." Our daughter asked what that meant, and before I could answer, our younger son, who was a teenager at the time, said rather drolly, "With turtle-like slowness."

    Have a super weekend! (May it pass with turtle-like slowness...)

    1. Too funny, turtle like slowness is the week, not the weekend, sadly!

  4. Never expect a man to finish the "to do" list if you plan on disappearing, lol.

  5. Now that's sinister and galling all at the same time!


I would love to hear from you, but please take with you my undying gratitude that you stopped by for a read. Be well, be happy, and may your blog surfing bring you joy!
