To the Sri Rama Sene With Love…

a.k.a. In New Mexico, They Call It A Quickie With A Chickie

Happy Valentine’s Day, good people of the blog. Spread the luuhhvin’.

She took great pains to choose the skirt. Artsy, with careless strokes of sunflowers right above the knee. She ironed it crisply, laid it out on the bed with attentive care, and held her breath as she slipped it on straight. Sitting primly in the car, she didn’t budge an inch for fear of a lone crinkle. It worked. The sunflowers arrived at their destination as fresh as daisies.

“Boy, that was good, wasn’t it?” he said afterward, as they lay on their backs, reclaiming their breath. With damp, crushed, yellow petals strewn around her thighs, she nodded ever so imperceptibly.

    Hey OJ

    Long time no see. Don’t remember? Okay, we were in the mutual admiration society while desperately praying to win the Caferati/Livejournal contest. Still don’t remember? Never mind then.

    Lovely little story in this post. Caught up with other posts. No point in inane commenting like ‘this was hilarious’ etc.

    Hope to follow your rants going forward. If the ‘day-job’ permits. Love to balem everything on the day job!! 😉

    Cheers
    Rohit

    brown girls: Try telling that to my offline friends. 😉

    Aunty G: I still owe you a phone call!

    Rohit Gore: Hey there! Pity they never did declare the winner. Because I ended up with the highest average. 😉

Here's a bar of chocolate. Now talk to me. :)
