Oops ... Saturday Centus

 Saturday Centus prompt this week is to use up to 150 words, dialogue only, using "Are you seriously ordering another martini,"




"Are you seriously ordering another martini?"
"Why not? ... I've only had three."
"No you haven't, you've had seven!"
"Noo ... I can't have had seven."
"You have, I promise you."
"But I can't have!"
"Why not?"
"Because my legs always give out after I've had five!"
"Your legs have given out!"
"No?!"
"Yes!"
"Oh ... that'll be it then."
"What'll be it?"
"Why you suddenly got taller than me about half an hour ago!"

Ah, martinis! This person might be trying to live up to this quote from Dean Martin,
"You're not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on." Great centus!

Namaste............cj
