The Rib Question

Eve barely knew what a rib was and here one had come and gone already. She knew pounds, okay, so ribs? Like barbecue, she supposed. Two cents? Neither sense or scent-related unless, like her friend Maggie, she began to like Liv Tyler’s Very Irrésistible Givenchy L'Intense, costing upwards of $80, out of range for an Early Childhood Education student. Eve had this feeling there’d be children, two – like the cents, and it wouldn’t end well because of the bad penny. It’d be something to blog about if she ever stopped getting >200 emails a day about that apple thing.

  1. Oh, oh. Is this your 'R' post, or your 'Ribs' post. The 'ribs' was supposed to be a 'rib' for Roy, because of his (I thought) rather cryptic instruction regarding 'anything that will fit on the block.' But I had really intended to choose some kind of punctuation at some point.
    However, if you are using 'ribs' as your inspiration, I guess it is too late.
    : )

  2. Oh, haha! You have used up all the punctuation, plus the ribs! What are you going to do for the rest of the month?
    Very cute entry, BTW.

  3. Brilliant riff. No inside joke was ever better told.

  4. Thanks! Honestly I began pondering if ribs meant ))) or something and then it wrote itself.
