Toasting Them All

This is another story that I did for a message board for a thread that was normally concerned with comically constructing new words and definitions. At that time people were taking turns writing short stories containing a short list of words given by another user. The story is changed slightly here in that it is broken up into two paragraphs instead of being contained in just one.

This story was one of several that I did for my post 989 on that message board. The other stories were separate from this one, with their own lists of words. The list of words for this story: rotation, mai tai, hooker, everglades, cheerful

This story is dated 5:04 AM, November 29, 2006, Arizona time (MST).


He raised the mai tai and toasted the bar, the hooker, the everglades, and the whole state of Florida. He then toasted them all again and began weeping.

His friends looked at each other uncertainly, and one put his finger by his head and moved the finger in a slow rotation. The other friend said "You may be right. He was a lot more cheerful, though, before we started watching 'CSI: Miami.' Let's see if we can find something else."
