  1. I hope it was hot, but not too spicy… 🙂
    No need to dish on the details!!

    Write (and date) on!

    • LOL Listen to you!

      Alas, the kyoka was nearly all from my imagination.

      I started with the phrase “pan out” and I thought of a dinner date immediately.

      Not to date myself, but I am definitely open to the possibility of a dinner date!

      Press on with YOUR writing! Best wishes, Andy
