Have you ever had one of those months where life just kicks you in the nuts? I’m having one of those. So, I hope this will make people feel better.
I traveled far and wide to see a thing of beauty.
I looked at an old wine-rack, now dutifully repurposed as a light display at this dive of a bar. I examined in thoroughly, and saw no flaws. The liquid was resonant, the electrical construction was exquisite.
“How much for that light rack?”
“It’s not for sale. That thing is what makes us half our money.”
“How does an old wine rack do that?”
The bartender I was talking to just laughed.
As the lights blinked to the music, I suddenly got the urge to buy a bottle of whiskey.
“How much for the whiskey bottle?”
“Heh. See? That’s what it does for me. Subliminal messaging.”
I only noticed that he was still speaking to me after plopping the whiskey bottle into my hand.
Ha… that sounds eerie.. subliminal messaging sounds like hypnosis.
What’s the name of that bar? Good story, made me laugh.
Hah! Reckon whoever owns that bar is going to get rich.
That’s a good trick. 🙂 Sounds like something Moe the bartender would try, if he could figure it out. Nice story.
Nicely done. Subliminal selling – a great idea.
What a great device to have!
okay, bring on the whiskey!
Being nut-less, I’ve never been kicked in them, but I’m sorry you have (metaphorically speaking, hopefully.) Hope the week gets better ASAP! In the meantime, I enjoyed your creative story. Now I’m off to have a Guinness. 🙂
(examined in thoroughly – I think you mean examined “it”)
Perfect take on the prompt. Nicely done.
Hope your week gets better and less painful.
I want one of those light displays for my next book signing. 😉 Creative story. Cheers!
It’s a hard life. Start hypnotizing yourself to feel better and failing that, wear a cup. Your story subliminally points the way. Physician, heal thyself? Hmmmm.
Pour me another! That could help the economy of any country! Fun.
Ah fantastic, movies are getting like that. Great write!
