The Way She Said It

“I’ve secretly been eating pancakes,” she said surreptitiously.

“My legs are very long!” she said stridently.

“I don’t think you can lock me up forever!” she said cagily.

“Thanks for the flowers!” she said rosily.

“Would you like more marinara?” she asked saucily.

“If I can get this string undone, we could have a lot of fun!” she said naughtily.

“I’m way too expensive for you,” she said caustically.

“There’s something very interesting about that underground graveyard,” she said cryptically.

“I can prophesize the future,” she said, seriously.

“Do you think Vitamin C can really heal a sore throat?” she asked, curiously.

“I think I’m going deaf,” she said, deliriously.

“WO-O-O-O-O-O-O-E is me!” she said morosely.

“Oh nooo, this sentence is the child of that last sentence!” she said in a woe begotten moan.

“Let’s order soup from that Chinese restaurant and do disgusting things with it,” she said wantonly.

“How could I not be pregnant?” she asked, inconceivably.

“I know a certain linking verb of a certain large size,” she said ambiguously

“I don’t want to give you back your dog,” she said petulantly.

“I’ve got scarlet pigment all over me!” she said incredulously.

“I’ve alphabetized our breakfasts, and we’re over halfway through the process,” she said, enigmatically.
