Watercolor (gouache), markers, and typewriter on watercolor paper

 

 

"I really strapped one on last night."

That shook me. Had things actually gotten that wild? After the first few martinis, the details were pretty sketchy.

The clever comment she'd made about the drinks had stuck with me, though. "I'm never sure," she said, "if it's a glass of gin that comes with its own snack or a snack that comes with a side of gin."

I remembered thinking that either way, I probably wouldn't have to buy her dinner first.
