V: Vice, Virtue, Vin, and Valium

#atozchallenge   V: Vice and Virtue lend themselves to great writing. Any scene involving gambling and alcohol can lead to the downfall of a character, and ultimately redemption. We can only hope the setting is exotic - Miami, Monte Carlo, or there's always Vegas.

Vices are sometimes only virtues carried to excess - Charles Dickens/Dombey &  Sons

I prefer an accommodating vice to an obstinate virtue - Moliere
I am stealing from author Roni Loren. She features Boyfriends of the Week and used Vin yesterday. Well, here's my V salute to Vin. Oh, he's SO not my type, BUT there's just something about him that conjures up vice and could lead to lack of virtue. His growl of a voice calls to my inner vixen. (And yes, the Fast & Furious movies annoy Ray to no end. I do not personally care about their lack of plot or inane car crashes. Paul Walker and Vin Diesel are fast and furious).
 
Valium - Think Valley of the Dolls, this popular antianxiety drug is a muscle relaxer and can be quickly abused due to fast tolerance development. Valium is often fatal when combined with alcohol and other drugs like barbiturates.

  1. I have a time share in Vegas. Should I be admitting that?
