A flannel-soft night erased frayed edges of day, leaving Evangeline to contemplate how her virtuous life revealed her inching towards the end of life.
All the luxuries I have denied myself…all the delights of the flesh…
Gazing out at the black sky, at the donuts of stars several life times removed, Evangeline considered her life to be a multiple of cartoons played out in black and white.
Damn. She considered, grabbing the car keys and the big wad of cash from under the mattress. I’m going to ‘Vegas.
Virtue has its limits.
Many thanks to Delores at thefeatherednest who instigated/started this Wednesday Words Challenge. Please go to her site, where she has participants on her right sidebar.
"Donuts" and "cartoons' were out there, Delores!!
