The thoughts and theories of a guy who basically should have gone to bed hours ago.

I know, I know - what's the point? But look at it this way - I stayed up late writing it, but you're reading it...

Let's call ourselves even & move on, OK?

It was a Dark and Stormy Night...

From Eric Swanson of the Penn Band, we present a dramatic reading:

I stood there on the stoop, staring down at her, and she stared back. Her promise of return had last year seemed an eternity away, and yet now it felt as if the interim had been removed by the vacuum of time, and we stood in a single unbroken moment. Though her question rattled around in my head, I could make no response, intoxicated by her presence. Her flowing green dress seemed to whisper with the promise of tomorrow, while her red hair spilled from under her fashionable beret like a waterfall of late afternoon sunshine. Again she spoke, her angelic voice shaking me out of my hypnosis, shaking me to my core.
"'I said 'Would you like to buy some cookies,' sir!," she repeated.
Yes, I thought to myself... yes I would like to buy some cookies.

What??? What were you thinking about?

You should be ashamed of yourself. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go take a shower...

  • Eh... I don't know why "ashamed" is the proper reaction here. "Intoxicated by her presence" is not exactly an emotion readily associated with the visit of your local Girl Scout. It does have strong sexual undertones, however. I was simply led on by a reasonably skillful wordsmith along the obvious wrong path...

  • Ilya - your level of intoxication may vary, depending on how much you like Girl Scout cookies.

    As for "ashamed," it was tongue-in-cheek. The Internet is wonderful for the miscommunication of tone...

  • HA! The things you find googling yourself on the internets. I didn't think there were "undertones," though. It's totally about Fenton wanting to nail a girl scout. :)

  • Great. And now Fenton will find equally interesting things when he Googles himself!
