Name that ‘Ship

So I made this observation on Twitter today:

And Jenn Burke replied:

Now, certain characters ride pretty close to the surface of my brain. Eli is one of those who has a habit of chattering at me. So I read that and:

“No.”  Eli pushed back from his laptop. “Absolutely not.”

Justin leaned over and peered at the screen. “I don’t know, I think it’s kind of cute.”

“It’s a type of donut.” He tipped his head back to look Justin in the eyes. “I am not okay with us being a type of donut.”

“What about a Jelli sandwich?”


“Jelli candy?”

“What, like a Gummi bear? No!” Eli paused. “So help me, if you say Jelli shoe, I’ll turn you over my knee.”

“Oh, like that’s a threat that’ll stop me…” Justin’s smile was wicked and wide.

“The things I put up with from you…”

Justin leaned down, his breath hot against Eli’s ear. “Jelli shoooooe.”
