Welcome to “Six Sentence Sunday”. Thank you for visiting and especially for any comments you might feel inclined to offer. Yes, I changed my blog theme, just temporarily for Halloween. I thought it was rather fun.
Today’s six comes once again from a little novelette I’m writing as a companion to my debut novel, The P.U.R.E. Jon and Gayle are dining at Jon’s parents’ home. Gayle is being a bit introspective now that all the initial awkwardness is beginning to fade.
[Jon] squeezed my knee in response, stroking the flesh with his thumb. Oh boy, someone was already warming up for dessert. He flashed his shark-like smile, no doubt picturing me as the cherry on top. With a home-cooked meal in his belly, his reserves fully charged, the evening promised to be quite energetic once the turkey drugs wore off. My giblets warmed at the thought of a warm and sated Jon stretched out in my bed, that same predatory smile affixed to his face. If only I didn’t have to pee like a racehorse on steroids.
Gayle, Gayle, Gayle…only you can end a sexy song on a coarse note.

Last line made me laugh! Great voice in these six.
Thanks so much, Lorraine! 🙂
Made me laugh, too!
Thanks, Ana! 🙂
Ha! Nature can call at the worst times, was it caused by this fabulous tidbit: My giblets warmed…
Ha! I never thought about it that way, but alas in this instance it’s more likely caused by too much iced tea and nerves. Thanks, SJ
Hahaha! Very cute!
Thanks, Dee! 🙂
LOL Yes, having to use the washroom would definitely interrupt his plans. Nice six!
Ah, but a whole new plot arc is created in that detour, believe it or not. I write a lot of bathroom scenes for some reason…hmm.
Great six! It made me laugh at the end 🙂
Thanks, Siren! 🙂
Ha! Love this six. And love the spooky blog – perfect for the season!
Thanks, Melissa. I’m really enjoying this theme too. 🙂
Gayle knows how to break a mood, doesn’t she??
Love the little thumb action from Jon. He’s such a stud. 😉
Jon really is sex on a stick as one reviewer said …. heh-heh.
Funny six with a lot of voice coming through!
Thank you, Susanna! 🙂
This snippet is choke full of fun. Giblets made me giggle!
Happy I made you giggle, Carrie! Thanks for the visit, m’dear. 🙂
Turkey drugs, giblets and peeing like racehorses on steroids always set the stage for a romantic evening.
They certainly do at the Gillian household! 😉 We love turkey, giblets, not so much.
Very amusing. I loved that the language was s unromantic, even though she was having romantic thoughts! Great 6.
LOL, thanks. Yeah, Gayle is a very earthy kind of gal, but when she’s in, she’s in deep.
Well I’m laughing. Poor Jon needs to wait. hehehe
Yes, wait quite a bit considering they are still sitting at his parents’ dinner table. Thanks for the visit, E! 🙂
Honestly, only you could make “giblets” sound remotely sexy 😉 You blend humor and hotness so well. xoxo
Thanks, Darlin’. Giblets was a last minute tweak actually. I made it last night but forgot to hit update on my post so noticed it being wrong after the post went live this AM. I think first few viewers read “innards”.
I was chuckling at that last line. And I’d hate to admit it, but I could relate. lol
I hate to admit it too…but I do tend to write what I know. LOL
hehehehe…enjoyed the humor. Great six 🙂
Thanks, Christine! 🙂
Had to laugh at this one.
Thanks, Sue Ann! 🙂
LOL @ last line! Great!
Haha, thanks. I almost didn’t write it thinking it TMI and a mood breaker.
Jon may be a stud, but she’s definitely controlling the race. Great six!
A lot of truth to this observation.
Fun 6, loved the voice here, from ‘turkey drugs’ to warming her giblets to the very character-revealing last sentence!
Thank you so much, Angela!
Humorous. Fun metaphor.
Funny. and I like the description of his shark smile.
