Slip (Jane Doe Six Sentence Stories)

“…and now I’m just…this…close…to snagging a guy with all that money,” Torrey  finishes, gasping at herself, blushing bright pink and wiping her mouth.

“Goodness, maybe I’d better stop having wine with my highlights before I spill all my ugly secrets.”
“That’s okay, doll, “says the stylist. “There’s many a slip ‘twixt the cup and the lip. “
“I don’t think that means what you think it means,” Torrey snaps, waving her empty glass for a refill. “You’d better not have jinxed me.”

I like trees, dreaming, magic, books, paper, floating, dreaming, rhinos, rocks, stargazing, wine, dragonflies, trains, and silence to hear the world breathe.

  1. cool… (I was bouncing that quote around in my head before the light-hearted tale that I ended up writing got it’s teeth in)… and, like the stylist (Jermaine Troye, right? That is his name, yes?*), prior to my research I would very likely have had a limited explanation of the meaning of the old proverb.
    good six.

    *lol… no, I have no idea why that was part of my comment


  2. What a great use of the cue word , Deborah and what a wise stylist ! May her dreams come true , though .
    And I am hoping she isn’t wearing her favourite tee, just in case 😀
