55 - ice cubes & chemistry

i like to bring ice cubes
into the bedroom
to keep cool
once you join me.

it's chemistry...
solid...
liquid...
vapor...

i am envious
of the drip
that slips slow
across your surface.

(your chill bumps
sure are cute.)

wanna see if we can
e v a p o r a t e
together.

(perhaps
we'll make rainbows,
when the sun hits us.)

Tell a story in 55 words. Give it a try or just read more, go see g-man.

Since the temp outside right now is 102, ice cubes sound kind of appealing. This is a fun post. Brrr.

Tracy said...

LOL..Brian, you sure know how to start a girl's weekend early. Have a good one!

Titanium said...

Super-chill! Way to crank the heat up even in the middle of a heatwave.

Christina said...

Oh, ice cubes! Now there's a thought. *blushes*

Bonnie said...

Just looked out the window and I'm seeing one giant rainbow Brian!! Hmmmm - even in this heat?

Tabor said...

This is waaay toooo hot for me! You need to be writing romance novels my dear man.

Brian Miller said...

it was 113 on the bank clock...figure it was in the sun...but melted a plastic cup in my car...ice cubes was all i could think of...well, almost....

Pam said...

How romantic!... and steamy... or should I say vaporous.Loved it!

Wings said...

5thsister said...

Very nice 55!

kavisionz said...

What amazing word play!!
"wanna see if we can
e v a p o r a t e
together." Sheer AWESOMENESS, I tell ya!

sarah said...

too 'cool.' perfect for this temp although sounds a little steamy....

Syd said...

You just gave me an idea...

Daniel said...

Rock on cube man!

blueviolet said...

You've been quite the busy one lately, haven't you? ;)

Eva Gallant said...

Your wife must be awesome if you can still think of sex in this heat...even with ice cubes...Or maybe we're just over the hill in this house!

slommler said...

Oooo!! Hubba hubba!!!
Hugs

Ocean Girl said...

Too cool and too hot at the same time as only you can do it. (55 must be the perfect number, someone did his homework).

Brian, thank you for your comment. It means a lot to my blogging journey.

TechnoBabe said...

You are giving me some good ideas, thanks. It isn't that hot outside here but I am liking the ice cube thing anyway.

Just Be Real said...

Oh my gosh Brian I can so relate to this. I hate to call what I have a bad habit or a lack of iron in my system, as it is noted by some doctors that if one craves ice they are animic (sp), but I cannot get enough of ice. I chew it or suck it through out the day at work and when I get home I have more of it. It can be freezing outside, and I will still chew ice. Thanks for the post by the way! Blessings.

Brian Miller said...

thats what i like to hear techno...bringing husbands and wives closer together one ice cube at a time...smiles.

Respectfully Yours said...

ice cubes...hmmmm. Popsicles work too, yummy.

Alice Audrey said...

I must be in an "Aw, that's sweet" kind of mood because I just came from Titanium's with that feeling and now I've got it here, too. I should be saying "hot" but I'm afraid you're stuck with "sweet" from me.

only a movie said...

Appropriate for this weather. Great job.

g-man said...

PG-13....
Most excellent seasonal 55.
What I mean by seasonal is HOT and STEAMY!!!!
This was one of my favorites from you Son...Terrific!
Thanks for getting all the women revved up, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

Katherine said...

Oh my!! Now that was far from being chilly because it was way too steamy.
Brrriliant!!!
Daniel called you the cube man & I am gonna call you the ice-man!!
Now you better go refill the ice cube trays!! You just never know when your gonna need to cool down!! or should that be steam up???

AngelMay said...

Now, Brian....Please allow this observation: You can hardly fault some bedazzled female out there for "stalking" you if you continue to steam up her glasses like this. Such is the fate of writers and lovers. :)

kkrige said...

That is just too sexy! hoo hoo hot stuff!

Steven Anthony said...

ICE CUBES!!!!! I feel a story comming on, but I'll save it for fetish...lol


always great my friend.

Betsy said...

Oh so clever...it's been that hot here, too! ha.

Luisa Doraz said...

Boy....gonna need a lot of ice cubes for this one. lol :) Have fun. :)Tooooo hot.

Mrsupole said...

Hi Brian,

I just want to warn you that if you keep this up then you are surely going to get that little girl that you want. I mean just look at all the big girl's you are getting all heated up and then cooling down. You have us all melting with envy for T, wishing our men were even half as romantic. I hope all the men who read your writings are writing or telling similar things to the women in their lives. Are you sure you are not Don Juan reincarnated? I at least think you are somehow related to him. Yup, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Your new name is Don Juan Brianos de WayStationista. The purveyor of romance amongst the men of Planeteria, from henceforth all shall bow to the knowledge secretly and freely passed on to all males who have the sense to know that a happy mate makes for a happy life. Where upon all this knowledge will be etched in stone (otherwise known as bloggyworld) for safekeeping for the future generations of the males on Planetista, who are henceforth decreed to guard this knowledge with the utmost care.

God bless.

otin said...

I actually hate the feel of being wet. I am not a fan of getting wet. Give me an air conditioner! LOL

The Retired One said...

Wowsa...somehow you just made hot even hotter. ha

Stan Ski said...

Brilliant combination of elements.

Mona said...

states of matter recycling ? :) That is a real novel way of looking at love making!

Do you know that fourth state of matter is plasma?

finallygettingtoeven.com said...

very nice....looking forward to reading the rest of this site

Pat said...

You just like to see what happens when your wife gets cold - *wink*

Va-va-va-voom!

adeeyoyo said...

I can relate to that; in our summers the heat can be unbearable! But it's winter here now - so don't you dare bring an ice block near me *shivers*!

Me said...

Hmmm...I was pretty sure I knew where you were going when I saw the title and you didn't disappoint. Hot stuff...great job! :)

TALON said...

I love the idea of getting cooled down just to get heated up again - I can see there being a need for more and more ice cubes - lol!

I liked the playfulness of this poem, Brian.

Peter Stone said...

Wow, top points for the conclusion, Brian. Evaporating together and making a rainbow when the sun hits - what imagery!
But you know, I'll pass on the ice cubes, being winter here 'n' all. I had to scrape the ice off my car this morning...

Bridgette said...

bow chicka wow wow :)

Susan Deborah said...

A strange yet lovely combination of chemistry and literature. Whoever said that sciences and humanities cannot com together! What a nice way to do a 55! And the comments, by Jove. Sometimes I wonder it is the post or the comments?

Have a splendid weekend, Brian.

Joy and peace,
Susan

Bernie said...

Doesn't everyone take ice cubes to bed.....to keep cool of course.
.......:-) Hugs

Caty said...

Very nice...I think you need to write a man's guide to romance or something like that...lol. Most men could learn a lot from you :)

C.M. Jackson said...

glad to see that you are dealing with the heat..great work!! happy friday!

Pastor Sharon said...

I believe this is the most fun and romantic invitation I have ever heard a man offer his wife.

Love it! Steamy and cool! Way to turn up the charm!

LadyFi said...

Magpie said...

Sounds like you're on your way to sainthood, Brian.

Cindy said...

Steamy Brian :)
I've done mine, but lost my Google password, so I can't get onto GMan's blog.

Well thanks a bunch, I now have the Kim Basinger ice cube scene from 9 and a half weeks bouncing around my head as I try and work this morning!

Gone for romantic tragedy today. Click here to read my 55 story.

Have a good day!

Alan Burnett said...

Is it just me, or are you getting better still? You were always good but you are now cornering the market on very good.

lakeviewer said...

Wait, wait. I'm still figuring this out. Too late, it's all evaporated before my very eyes.
You are romantic!

Liza said...

"i am envious

Hubba hubba Brian.
BRILLIANT!!!!

I heard someone once describe a rainy day as sexy, wet, and drippy.
This piece reminded me of that.

JamieDedes said...

I love story in poem. Good job. Thanks! And, judging by your comment on my blog, I can see why ice cubes are an appealing subject right now. Sending you some cool . . .

Help! Mama Remote... said...

Nara Malone said...

Coll! You do such hot stuff with ice cubes. :) We're in the middle of a heat wave here, and I'm not sure this is helping to cool things off.

Unknown Mami said...

Man, those ice cubes are getting a lot of action.
