Bilious and Short-tempered
Missed Connections in New Orleans
You were promenading along the boulevard in the company of a bewhiskered gentleman and what may have been a thylacene.
Somewhere a military band was playing Sousa.
You were a bit green around the gills, wet behind the ears- I was enchanted.
I waved my sparkling ovipositor, you blushed prettily.
When can we meet?
I’m aching for consummation.
Her Two Cents from the Missed Connections Chief Bottle-Finder:
In case you’re studying for the SAT, GRE, or some other exam testing your knowledge of the arcane and esoteric, a thylacene was the largest known carnivorous marsupial of modern times. Considered extinct, it was called the Tasmanian tiger. An ovipositor is an organ used by some animals for the laying of eggs for reproduction. Combine that with some sparkles and too much alcohol (cause of green gills) and Wacky Stuff abounds… welcome to NOLA.
