Six Sentence Sunday

Today's character sketch is Nikki Lane from The Best Selling Toy Of The Season.  In this excerpt Nikki goes with her fiance and his friends to an upscale restaurant for dinner.  She's scared because Tommy comes from an upper middle class family while Nikki is a working class girl.  She orders plum punch which she doesn't realize has alcohol in it.  After she's had a few glasses disaster strikes.  Ben is her fiance's best friend.

“Why were you scared to have dinner with us?” Ben asked curiously.

“Because you’re the mayor. You and your wife aren’t in the same social class that I am, and I expected you to look down on me. I don’t know why you would though. After all, you got caught with a
prostitute and your wife almost divorced you. I never did anything that bad.”

By the way, Ben didn't do any such thing.

Nothing like a little plum punch to lossen the tongue and send barbs at others more deserving

Ahhh so embarrassing! I can so relate though. My mouth runs away with me once I've gotten into the 'punch', too. Great six!
