AOSDROPSTTEPAO: PROPOSED A TOAST
Mike, This one’s for you: 🍾
Good morning, Everyone. 🍎 Happy National Apple Pie Day: 🍎 Mike has the morning off, I’m here to welcome you to the weekend.
Our words today are as easy as pie, the one exception maybe being PAYOFF. Those two-in-one words can sometimes be tricky, and I blinked once or twice before I saw the word. Very good scramble. Letters at the ready, on to the cartoon! Not sure if it was intentional, but Jeff has taken some poetic license here, and given us a poem within the dialogue! “Life…wife!” How cute is that? I’m reading it and thinking back to English 101 and iambic pentameter comes to mind. Iambic pentameter! It’s a word game, it’s a cartoon…it’s 6 o’clock on a Saturday morning…get over it! The cartoon: We have a man, Raised glass in hand, A ring we see…Ah, there’s the key! (Yes, yes, I know. Sorry, I just couldn’t resist)! It’s a PROPOSAL!…And we see he’s making a toast…And there you have it! PROPOSED A TOAST! How cute is THAT? The couple, along with the waiter are raising champagne flutes. The other diners, (which OF COURSE includes the requisite blonde woman dressed in purple – Seriously, what’s up with this?), seem to be joining in with a wine and perhaps a scotch on the rocks? Smiling faces all around! Really good graphic, exceptional dialogue. Kudos! Cheers! Congratulations! I think today, Jeff has shown us that..To some, marriage is just a WORD…To others….it’s a SENTENCE!
Wishing Everyone a wonderful day, and to those of us here in the Northeast, I hope you’re 🎶”Singin’ In The Rain…🎶 ☔️ 💦🙋🏻
