    Love the imagery, use of language, emotional honesty of the characters. Short piece packs a whallop! Makes me want to know what came before and what’s coming next for these 2.

    Found you on Yeah, Write. Looking forward to more!

    A bit of a comma problem, BTW.

    Best to you,

      Thanks so much, Sally. I enjoyed this week’s question. You’re right, I tend to put commas where I want pauses. It’s a bad habit I’m trying to break. Speaking of commas, I’d be a bad editor if I didn’t point out that it’s actually “yeah write,” not “Yeah, Write.” 🙂

    That is a powerful first line, Christine! It drew me in and the third line kept me there. Love the double meaning throughout. It’s a perfect metaphor; the delicacy of the dishes and of the relationship.
