Favorite Potables: Eight Winter Cocktails


Poetry Monday | graphic designed by and property of | #poetry #MyGraphics

Blogging schedule all worked out,
when a friend stopped by to say,
"Favourite Potables" will be the theme,
for this, Poetry Monday.

Love you Diane, my Canadian friend,
changed my schedule to join in.
But I'll spell "favorite" the correct way,
(though the words are clearly akin).

Favorite Potables
"Whatcha doing?" Hubby asked,
right as he walked in.
"Writing a blog post" I answered.
"Need to see which ones will win."

He saw the mess and looked at me,
face askew . . . or so I thought,
(although it was really hard to say,
since that last, quite generous, shot). 

"The entire bar's in front of you,
most bottles seem . . . quite low."
"Research," I answered smiling,
"How else am I to know?"

"What is it you're researching?
And I'd also like to hear,
how writing for your blog requires,
slurring your words, my dear."

I tried to stand, but no such luck,
so answered on my rear end,
"My favorite potables, for Diane.
Yes, I'm that good a friend."
