Dames, they know what you tell em' to know, you know? In this tongue-in-cheek noire short, a dame knows a man who knows a dame...you get the idea.

@AngelOfDarkness_X Hi, thanks for your comment on "Know What You Know". I'm glad you saw it in black and white. I'm a huge noir fan and love the snappy dialogue and feel of them. Thanks again. :-)

I saw the whole thing in black and white...an old movie...
                                    
                                    A very well written piece.

@theattentivesoul Hi! Thanks for venturing a read on "Know What You Know". I'm a huge fan of Chandler and I'm happy if I inspired you to read him. Thank you for feeling I did the lingo well. I really appreciate that. I'm glad you enjoyed the ending and piece overall. Thanks again for finding me. :-)
Great story! I've been wanting to read some Chandler stories, now you've got me really wanting to find them. It's not easy to fall into that old lingo, and you did it well. And the ending was unexpected, very funny. vtd

@Lisaner Hey Lisa! Thanks for taking a read of this. I'm glad it got you going. Yeah I wanted to go over the top and I'm fan of the old noir/Raymond Chandler type of story. I had to go there with the chauvinistic language. :-) Thanks for the compliments. Glad you enjoyed it.

This story really got me going.  In turn, I got a kick out of the bowery boy lingo and was appalled at the chauvanistic language. The ending had me chortling.  Cool story, Steven. vtd.
