The Pointy End

Story Sent in by Ellen:

We had just finished dinner at a neighborhood cafe when Colby pointed at me across the table, without a word.

My look must have been enough for him to explain: "Pull my finger."

I said, as politely as I could muster, that I had no intention of pulling his finger, now or ever.

"Best to get it out of the way now," he said, "Once we're married, it's all you'll be doing."

I told him, "I don't think that's what marriage is."

He asked me if I'd ever been married. I hadn't, although I had come close once. He said that I should then know that as a wife, my job was to pull whatever was pointed at me.

I said, "If I were you, I wouldn't point anything at me that you wouldn't want pulled off."

"I'll point whatever I want at you," he went on, "I've got a couple things pointed at you, right now." He pointed his finger at me again and said, "Note how I said, 'a couple of things.' 'A couple of things...'"

"I got it," I said, fumbling in my purse for enough money to pay for myself.

He pointed his other finger at me. "Now I'm pointing three things. Three very pointy things."

"Your nose?" I asked him.

"God, you're dense," he said.

"And you're flaccid," I said.

"I'm not. I'll prove it."

But by that point, I had my money out and I was one foot out the door. Goodbye and get lost!


  1. OMG, Blue Blue submitted our first date?!

  2. STEVE, that not how our first date went and you know it. also i want to know what a finer is.

  3. I'm getting a strap on for my first date with Tanette so I can be as cool as Steve on his first date with Blue Blue.

  4. That story went from stupid to creepy in five seconds flat!

  5. I think we have enogh evidence of blue blue's gender and sex now. What I want to know is what's tryN2fly's gender. So far I assumed he was he but strap on says otherwise now.

  6. I'm still trying to work it out myself Ria. It's quite a circus down there but on the plus side there is something for everyone.

  7. Wow goodbye and get lost for sure!!! What a freak :S

  8. @ tryn2fly, LOL! I almost asked why do you need strap on? Then realized the answer you'd give me and I'm being at work and all I stopped myself in time.

  9. First of all Archi, I'm the fat bitch. Don't you forget it. And also, Tryn2Fly, I am soo looking forward to our date. Yeah, Baby!
