“Well, that’s it,” said Whizzbang, “Another year over, a new one begins. You make resolutions?”

Mab’s face lit with a dreamy smile  “Oh, yes,” she crooned, “The very best was back in nineteen sixty-nine.”

“Oh? Pray tell,” said Whizzbang.

“Well, did you ever hear of the blues singer, Eddie Quicksilver?”

“Wasn’t he that singer who went missing after a New Year party back in… oh!”

“Mmm, that was me. I made a resolution to make him my… inamorato.”

“Mab! I’m not sure that’s how resolutions are supposed to work. But I do like your style.”

“Summer of love,” sighed Mab.

    Ahh, I remember the 60’s so well, especially those who wore flowers in their hair, a great time to be alive. Mab seems to have enjoyed it too, wink wink! Great story Carrie.

    Oh! Here again, Mab and Whizzbang; entertaining me. I love the word: “inamorato.” It is my first time encountering this word so, I made a research on its meaning. And I was amazed by the result. I can now call my husband; my “inamorato.” Thank you, Carrie. What a nice story again.

    Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

    Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
