Weekend Writing Prompt #239 – Smuggle

While the wind is making like the big bad wolf, and I’m winding down from my office party, I decided to let the word prompt get my creativity flowing.

As Sammi tells it:  How you use the prompt is up to you.  Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like.  Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise.  If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in the comments.

wk 239 smuggle

Gonna have fun tonight!  Weddings always are, don’t you think?

Yep.  Good food, good drink, good music.  Drunken uncles…

Oh wait.  I just remembered. It’s a dry wedding

Da hell’s a dry wedding?

No booze.

No booze!  This is bullshit.  I’m out.

We can always smuggle some booze in, what say you?

I got a couple flasks…

Now you’re talkin’!

We’ll be the drunken uncles!

    • Haha! I dunno about clever but a friend did go to a wedding yesterday which reminded me of weddings in general and the real dry one I attended… Let us just say the dynamic is different without booze!

    • Tee hee! They always show up, don’t they? My backyard looks like a tornado hit. A heavy bin, containing my lawn furniture cushions, is upside down and off the deck and the cover ripped off and in the garden! It’s still gusting at 31 mph!

  1. LOL. At least with dry weddings there are no drunken uncles, right? But, alas, what stories would we have to tell? Here’s my solution: “Rent-a-Drunken-Uncle” business. Whaddyathink?

  2. Oh, that was right up your creative alley, Dale. Well done!

    Our family Thanksgiving event was alcohol free this year. I don’t think anyone noticed or cared. 🙂

    And everyone is still on good terms.

    • Was it now? 😉 Thank you.

      Was that a decision made for any particular reason or just because? I can’t imagine any of my family choosing not to drink. LOL.

      And that is a good thing – that all are still on good terms, that is 🙂

      • It was an afternoon event. While one of the guests is in recovery (albeit a bit late), booze was neither forbidden nor severed. It was around, but no one touched it.

        Now, if I’d had a bit ganja sitting around, different story for sure. 🙂

        I admit it. Never been to a dry wedding. I’m sure I’d remember.

        • Which is not a bad thing.

          Ahh… ya gotta come to my house. there is ALWAYS ganja…

          It was… interesting… Of course, it being an Indian wedding, it was all the more interesting. The ceremony took place outside at a zoo! It was hotter than Hades and lemme just tell you a nice cool and refreshing something would have gone down well. By the time the dancing started – so very late – my date had had enough so we cut out of there sans a single dance. Of course, we did have an hour and a half drive to get home so…

  3. LOLOL!
    Funny write! I never heard of a dry wedding. Still, smuggling in booze adds excitement.

    My eyes tricked me. I was waiting for the snuggle punch line. ⚡️💥

    • Always happy to get a LOLOL!
      It’s very weird, let me yell you! We didn’t smuggle any in but boy were we tempted.

      I was gonna write something confusing the two! 🧚🏻‍♀️🌟


  4. ‘Social lubricant’ … what can we say? It’s magical how it loosens the crowd! 😉
    The wind woke me up quite a few times last night, worrying about tornadoes, the seed planted in my mind by the disaster in KY. 😦

  5. Q

    Never trust anyone who throws a dry wedding. Ever. It’s not simply crazy time, it’s pretty self involved, to think your tee-totality extends to every other single person in the universe that is spinning around you.

    Also, don’t trust anyone who overdoes it on the booze. They’re either gang members or cops, and I know this because I’ve been to both. You’re going to want to stay late when you go to the gang reception so as to achieve street cred, which as it turns out, can be redeemed at a later date. True story. As for the cops reception? Leave early, because they’re going to stay until all the booze is gone. And for bonus points, you get to speed all the way home.


    PS- I used a flask exactly one time in my life.
