A to Z: The Wet Blanket

In wrapping up the third week of Aprils' A to Z Challenge, I'm feeling the warm fuzzies from everyone's visits so far. Of all the blogs in all the A-to-Z world, you didn't have to pop into mine, but you did, so I hope this gin joint's been worth it. :)

Speakeasy, I mean, speaking of gin, if there's one thing to glean from a lot of this 1920s slang, it's that spirits warmed the spirit back then--significantly so, as alcohol became the forbidden fruit and rebellious young women who dared to bare more skin cloaked themselves instead in more than a lover's arms...

~*~  QUILT  ~*~
Meaning: A drink that warms you up.
"Who needs clothes when I drank a quilt?"


  1. Lol, I've never heard alcohol referred to as a 'quilt'! But it makes sense if you think about it, both are warm and comforting...I guess? I dunno. I don't drink.

    Your A to Z theme is quite fascinating. I've been meaning to say hello for a while, ever since you mentioned on Alex's blog that you liked New Order and The Smiths. "Low-Life" is one of my 10 fave albums of all-time!

    My A to Z theme is Chicago. Stop by and say hello if you wish: The Pedestrian Writer

    Glad to make your a-Quaintance ;-)

  2. My sweet home Chicago?! You bet I'll swing by your blog!

    And thanks for popping by mine. Always giddy to meet a fellow New Order and Smiths fan. I live in the UK now and visiting Manchester was like a pilgrimage to worship at the doorstep of 80s British alternative rock. :)
