Weekend Writing Warriors #51!

Well, hi there! Welcome back to another exciting week of reading and sharing and general merriment! For those unaware, January 24th is National Peanut Butter Day. I hope my fellow PB addicts celebrated accordingly. If not, no need to panic. You can celebrate by reading another excerpt from Nutcases!

Here's the premise: It's the year 2033. Since so many people have developed allergies to peanuts in this century, the government has banned peanuts and all peanut-related products, including (*gasp*) peanut butter. Side note: I think that was the most anyone has ever used the word 'peanut' in a sentence. Well, as you can imagine, Morgan, my heroine, refuses to live in a world without PB. So, with the help of my hero, Clark, they build their own peanut-butter-making machine in the secret basement of her home and begin the business of bootlegging. Also, they share a few pb kisses, etc, etc. :-D

And here's an excerpt:


“By the way, I’m really not wearing any underwear.”

“Oh God.” They’d never make it upstairs, not if she kept circling her hips and humming softly in her throat. Not when all he could think about was spreading the entire contents of the jar from one end of her body to the other.

There would be time to work out the specifics of the machinery on the table, but his equipment was about to blow. Reading his thoughts, or perhaps the SOS from his pulsing appendage, she hopped from his arms and created some room for them to get a little better acquainted. And screw each other’s brains out. Well, that’s what he intended to do, at least. 

That's all, folks! Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors!

On Friday I finished off my first semester teaching high school Phys.Ed. This week we get into the nitty-gritty business of exams and report cards, but I'm still flying high after a couple rounds of 'warm fuzzies' with my students. I gave all the girls a piece of paper, had them jot their names in the top corner, and then we sat in a circle and passed them around, writing an anonymous note of something we liked about every person. At the end, when we all got our original sheet of paper back, there were smiles on every face, including my own. :) Wishing you all a week filled with warm fuzzies!

  1. Saying that she is not wearing any underwear, I'm pretty sure of her intention too.

  6. I love the premise for this story, Evelyn! Kind of harkens to bootlegging. Hmm, guess your characters are doing that, huh? Bootlegging peanutbutter. ;-) I was surprised, years ago to learn that peanutbutter is barely existent in many EU countries, especially France.

    And I think what you did with your students is downright wonderful!!! I wish my kids had had a phys ed teacher like you. Heck, wish I'd had one like you! :-)

    BRAVO!

  9. My advice: "Don't sit on any cold benches." (If you know what I mean!) Another great 8!

    You know that 10 years or so down the road, those girls will nostalgically reminisce about the most fantastic teacher they ever had -- and it will be you!

    1. Hee! That's some excellent advice!

      Awww, you are too sweet, A-M! One of the girls wrote to tell me that I'd helped her gain confidence and self-esteem this semester, and it was like the greatest reward I could ever imagine. Coolest job in the world. :)
