Description Game Follow-Up: A Confession

On Monday I posted a little game for you to play.  If you missed it, you can read more here.

For a review, here are the descriptions that I wrote:

1. She lifted the plump, glistening berry to her lips.  As she bit into it, sweet juices flooded her mouth.  She grinned and reached for another.

2. The liquid was refreshing as it rushed down his throat.  He took another mouthful and let the cold sweetness linger before he swallowed.  With a sigh of contentment he carefully set down his glass on a coaster.

3. As the steam rose, she inhaled and enjoyed the scent of the soup in front of her.  She dipped her spoon into the bowl and let the savory warmth pour across her tastebuds.  Reaching for a piece of bread, she held it into the soup and let it soak.

4. He grinned as he licked the sweet, creamy icing off of his fingers.  With one finger still coated, he dabbed the bottom of the cupcake paper to collect the last few crumbs.  One cupcake gone, he paused and then reached for a second.

Before I tell you the “answers” I have a confession.  For two of these, specifically #2 and #3, I didn’t have a concrete image in my head when I wrote them.   In fact, I wavered between a couple of different items as I wrote them.   Now that I’ve made that admission, here’s what I was picturing.

1. Strawberry – this is the description that inspired the game!
2. I wavered between lemonade and sweet tea.
3. I started with beef and vegetables, then switched to baked potato.
4. Chocolate cupcake, of course, with white (or maybe green) frosting.

Of my readers, Nicole W. was closest, with these answers: 1. Strawberry 2. Lemonade 3. Chicken noodle 4. Chocolate with whipped white frosting

Thanks for playing!
