5th of November

5th of November:
Outside, the air suitably smells of powder, smoke — it’s bitter cold but no matter, because for the crowds, it’s all about homegrown terrorism and Guy Fawkes.
A penny for the guy and a penny for your thoughts, before you play your hand — straight As for your poker face and the impressive attention span.
It’s a royal flush of course: you win, take everything-including me-on the table. It’s messy, it’s bold, the cards tumble, fall to the floor.

“Preposterous” I mumble.
Why? I don’t know, maybe the wine was responsible, or this is what happens when sanity crumbles.

“Say it again” he tells me…he insists, when I don’t reply instantly.

I oblige: “Pre-pos-ter-ous”

Possibly the strangest dirty talk ever, have I done weirder? I can’t recall.
Nevertheless, as long as there’s no straight jackets, give us a cell and padded walls—sex laced with intellect from dusk till dawn—I guarantee I’d never get bored.
Pre-pos-ter-ous. Possibly my new favourite word…this, I discovered on a night filled with fireworks, on the
5th of November.

      1. Haha it’s cause to celebrate 😉
        They can be useful…here and there…once in a while…as long as you don’t haemorrhage 😳
        I used to know somebody who couldn’t send a text or do a Twitter status without adding at least 4 or 5 emojis at the end of each tweet…thereby giving everyone the impression he was a 13 year-old girl 🙄

  1. If pre-pos-te-rous is the prelude to Posterous, what then would Psterous be? Some “Roussian” post? Or just a prelude to Posterity.
    But then a Prelude (and preludes are almost always better) is pre-vious to a Lude, the Game. 😉
    Allez, assez déconné. I am just being preposterous. Bonne semaine.

  2. Okay, I’m holding a 5, 6, 7, 8 & 9 of diamonds. I’m thinking it’s a straight flush.
    Oh my! I just flushed the toilet. Eek the cards went down the tube. That’s what I get for playing poke – him …. erm.. poke – her in the bathroom when smoking pot.
    Did I say that?
    Yes! 😀 OMG, I just love being cheeky!
