Fandango One Word Challenge: Divulge

Divulge

Endeavoring to look as inconspicuous as possible, Omar began to divulge all the state secret that he knew to his operative, Louis. Their relationship was a curious one. After over ten years of collaboration, neither knew anything about the “Other.” Both were married, but their wives had never met. They both had children, yet they didn’t even know the names of the other’s children. Despite the paucity of information that they possessed on one another, their bond was tight. If Omar stubbed his toe, Louis would cry out in pain. They were like twins who had been separated at birth.

“Speak up, Omar!” Louis chided. “I can barely hear you.”

Song Lyric Sunday: Them There Eyes

Caitlyn 1 eyes

While New Epic Author left the field fairly wide open for this week’s prompt, I decided to focus on eyes. There are a myriad of songs out there about eyes. I decided to share the upbeat jazz number, “Them There Eyes,” which has been covered by all the greats; and of all those greats, Billy Holliday is without doubt the greatest. Listen to her give this tune the treatment. If you’re in the mood, you can sing along with the lyrics (found with a simple Google search) below.

Them There Eyes by Maceo Pinkard, Doris Tauber and William Tracey

I fell in love with you the first time I looked into them there eyes
And you have a certain lil cute way of flirtin’ with them there eyes
They make me feel so happy, they make me feel so blue
I’m fallin’, no stallin’ in a great big way for you
My heart is jumpin’ you started somethin’ with them there eyes
You’d better look out little brown eyes if you’re wise
They sparkle, they bubble, they’re gonna get you
In a whole lot of trouble, oh baby, them there eyes
I fell in love with you the first time I looked into
You have a certain lil cute way of flirtin’
They make me feel so happy, they make me feel so blue
Fallin’, no
