275. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Note: Strong language.

Saturday, June 2nd, 8:00pm
Hillary (and Sean)


Hillary sits at the window, looking at an iPad. Sean takes the seat beside her.

Sean: Whatcha got there?

Hillary: Jake gave it to me.

Sean: Ooooh, things are escalating. He found out what a great cocksucker you are, huh?

Hillary: Why do you have to be so crude? And no, I didn’t suck his cock. He just gave it to me ‘coz he likes me.

Sean: He’s expecting it though. No guy gives things away without expecting something in return.

Hillary: No, that’s just you.

Sean: Pfft. Wait and see.

Hillary: No YOU wait and see. Jake’s a gentleman. You’re just a dick.

Sean: HA! A gentleman who plays with himself on the bus. HA!

Hillary: Shut up. He doesn’t do that anymore.

Sean: That’s what you think.


Next stop: Sunday, June 3rd, 5:00pm

#SoCS – My Own Worst Enemy

I admit it: I wasn’t thinking straight when I came up with today’s SoCS prompt. If I had, I’d have realized that because my real favourite word isn’t fit for a family-friendly blog, I’d have to come up with another “favourite” word that wasn’t really my favourite. If I’m nothing else, I’m honest. However, the real reason I wanted to use this prompt was to see what other people’s favourite words are.

The question comes from my memory of watching “Inside the Actors Studio.” (The lack of an apostrophe is something I’d never noticed before. My editor’s brain has given me new insight–love it when that happens.) I remember thinking that if they asked me the same ten questions they ask the guests on the show, my favourite word would be the same as my favourite curse word. And I also remember thinking that if I answered the question honestly, I’d blush. I loved watching that show – I’m amazed to find upon researching it that it’s still running. Twenty-two seasons and counting.

I found this from the show:

I have so many second-favourite words, I can’t pinpoint one. Phenomena, because it reminds me of the “Me na me na” song from the Muppets; moist, because it’s the underdog of all words for some strange reason; coffee, by association; magic, because of what it represents to me; there are so many!!

But my favourite word of all …

Nope. Not telling.
