Just for you.

JUST FOR YOU
“Look Glen. I know I should have thought first and then hit him. But, my love, he said you were a bitch! Well what would you have done in my place?
“You’d what? This phone line’s bad. What? You would have shot him? Don’t be mad. Oh, shot him there. Yes, well I might have, but I don’t tote a gun! Oh, damn this line. Did you say one at a time? You must be a good shot.
“Ha, ha ,ha. Oh Glen! you would have been put in clink for that, good shot or not. Yes, if I’d had a gun I might have done the same. But my aim is not as good as yours. No! Calm down, I said ‘as yours’. Look change your phone!. That’s right, the green cell phone.
“Great, I can hear you now. what’s that? What did you say you were? Yes, Glen of course I know you are. I pay the bills don’t I? But he had no right to call you one. That’s just for me to do! See you at the club babe. No not this week I’m in court. Well he did say he’d sue me for that left hook.
“Of course you’re worth it my sweet. Hey,no more of your cheek. Hah,hah,ha.
“See you soon. Take care my Glen. Bye. Love yer. Ciao!”
Her phone shut down and she could not hear my kiss.
Good job! I “only” caught one rogue word.
If , as I think you must,you would identify the rogue word as ‘ciao’ this is an interesting point. here it is used to rhyme with chow and said fast and in one breath. However, in central Italy where I lived for some years it was often pronounced ‘chi ow’ which would make it two syllables. A moot point I think you’d agree. But if it isn’t your rogue word which is? I just can’t find it.Do tell. Thanks. Anton
The rogue word is only. But thanks for the ciao lesson.
Thanks. You are quite right of course, but it is great to think that editing one’s own writing is quite impossible. I shall amend it. You always miss something. I have been a journalist for 55 years and never have I filed my own copy without passing it to a sub-editor or colleague first. Thanks for proving I haven’t lost my touch! 🙂

thanks, but I did need one edit to get it spot on 🙂
