Welcome to a Hump Day edition of the WTIT Blog. First a couple of shouts. Debbie of Through Thick and Thin and Jodi of Moody Blue have bestowed upon this blog some terrific awards lately and we’d like to thank them.
Dave had been married a very long time, but had no kids. Dave and Qutip always thought their pets were enough. There were their fish. Feeding and cleaning the tank was something Dave enjoyed doing. He had even taught his fish tricks. “Guido” could actual jump out of the tank; get Dave’s newspaper and then hop back into the tank. Then of course there were Ben and Jerry, the couple’s pet gerbils. Dave once said they were the “key” to a long and satisfying relationship. Qutip had just returned with the gerbils from the vet and handed Dave a copy of the credit card receipt. Dave stapled the receipt into his “gerbil” folder that he kept for tax reasons.
Dave’s one huge vice was strip clubs. He hadn’t seen any other naked woman other than Qutip. Ever. She was his first love, his first cousin, and they had known each other since their birth on the same day in 1956. That was quite an event in their small township in the hills of West Virginia. But about five years ago Dave thought he might have missed something and went to a strip joint named “Bowties”.
He offered to buy another glass of wine and asked if he could sit while he dried off. The stripper introduced herself, “I am Bamby, but not like the deer,” she offered, “cuz it has a ‘Y’”. “Why?” Dave asked. “Yes ‘Y’” Bamby responded. Dave was already in love. He just knew it. “Where do you live?” he stammered. “At the “Y”” replied Bamby. “A beautiful stripper like yourself should live in a palace,” Dave stated. “Why?” asked Bamby. “Look here is my story,” Dave began, “I have been with but one woman my whole life. Next week is our 30th anniversary. I bought us tickets for a cruise to the Virgin Islands. But say the word and I will take you instead.” Bamby thought and replied, “Alas I am not a virgin.” “Why?” asked Dave. “Bigger tips” said Bamby. “But I will go with you!” Dave was happy. Qutip never ever noticed.
