Aware my inspection was complete, and with an exacting display of bravado, she whimpered, "Emmmaahh... well?"
A pause of not more than a count of two allowed time for our eyes to meet. I answered. "What am I doing tonight? I'm loading you in the truck, driving you 100 miles away, and letting your butt go is what I'm doing tonight."
I loaded her and drove her to the middle of St. Denis in Montreal. I set her free and shouted, "Beware hommes, I just set a filthy rich 50-something year old, lawyer's ex wife loose; n' if she gets her teeth into you you're gonna regret it, cause she's got broccoli garlic breath, bad!"
Moral of this story? Well, there isn't a moral per se. It's just a simple story I made up for your enjoyment. Hope it worked on some small scale.
