I once wrote you a letter
Which I slipped inside a bottle.
The bottle had held some very nice wine
(I had drunk it all in search for courage and words)
And I thought I had drained it all.
But when you broke the bottle
To read my prose
You found it full of drunken letters
Uproarious grammaticals and
Tittering errors.

That's wonderful - drunk on overlooked fumes.

LOL! I LOVE this one! The image of all the words tipsy & stumbling over each other!

can't you just hear them?

the word "heart" for example,
**pushes the word love out of the way** says: "oh for pete's sake, you there, "LOVE" get back where you belong, no...no *points*, over there...BEHIND the word 'roses'...
ugh...

Word love is snickering uncontrollably the entire time.

Great scene, Stacy. I do hope they are not too drunk though. That could get really embarassing.
