Ragtag Daily Prompts: Glean, October 30, 2109

Max 1

Maxwell looked at Monica with thinly veiled disgust, and when he spoke, his voice dripped with sarcasm.

“I suppose you haven’t given any thought to the missive I left you last night?”

Monica was still a bit woozy from the daiquiris (four of them) that she drank the night before.  “Are you talking about the dead mouse?” She asked. “What am I supposed to glean from that?”

“I suppose you didn’t take a very close look at it,” said the cat.

“Of course not! Karl took care of that. I hear that I’m supposed to praise you for that sort of thing.” Monica had already opened the liquor cabinet and was shocked at the paucity of rum left in the bottle.

“You’d better watch it, my dear. You’re turning into a lush.”

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar.
