Charts and optimal dates and preferential temperatures. One line or two.
As if she could summon whatever it is that makes up the human soul as easily as she could a cab on a busy New York avenue.
Why can’t he see it? Her shoes slipped in the early slush. I’m no lab result.
He had tried to tell her:

Hive minds, queen bees and honey. She knew he preferred that to talks of love anyday.

So the prompt for the anniversary challenge was:
“Charts and optimal dates and preferential temperatures. One line or two. As if she could summon whatever it is that makes up the human soul as easily as she could a cab on a busy New York avenue.”
I’ll be honest, I was really off-put when I read that. I had no idea what to do with it, and it wasn’t my usual writing style. I immediately had to Google “preferential temperatures” because I needed to know what sort of a person might be talking about that. Well, my results gave me articles about insects. The rest followed.
My partner in the challenge is Natalie Amatera… her part will follow,and I will add a link once it is complete! (And probably just post a complete version here because that way it will flow.)
This was a lot of fun.
