Veteran's Day // Up Dates & Latex

First, I always feel a tinge of guilt if I don't at least acknowledge Veteran's Day, and I suppose I feel guilty for having no concept of what it's like to be on the front lines. It's easy to say that I don't take my freedoms for granted, but I do. I've never lived or fought in a war zone, and I'm not in one now. Thus, with great respect and humility, I salute our military - past and present. In particular, thank you to my good friends, Pat Tillett and Al Penwasser (Ken Lynch). A meaningful Veteran's Day to all.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Next, I'm dating "George." He works in latex.  Truthfully, George wears latex for his job...in healthcare. After I shared with him my Halloween Erotica poem, George suggested a date on Halloween. Coincidence? Perhaps; he didn't grab for my candy corns that night.

George is sweet, nerdy, smart and reliable--sort of a higher end model of George Costanza. While both are neurotic, this George exhibits a calm and steady neurosis. He's not at all dramatic. He doesn't carry a magazine cut-out photo of a famous model, boasting that she was his ex-fiance; hasn't lived with his mom since he was a kid, and doesn't have issues with shrinkage. Well, I can't say this for sure. We haven't showered or gone skinny-dipping together. I have good reason to not worry about this, though. Wink. Remember "the swirl"? Yeah, I'm glad he learned that one.

Thanks to my buddy, Bryan, this image sticks with me these days.

While there are differences between Georges, they both know latex. We had this chat the other day:

"A lot of people are allergic to latex nowadays, so we have to avoid it," he informed. 

"What do they do about sex?" I asked.

"I guess they have to abstain or resort to masturbation," he suggested, factually. 

We both giggled.

"When I ask men who come into the office if they're allergic to latex," he told me, "they  very proudly and in a deep voice say, 'Oh no! Not at all. I'm NOT allergic to latex.'"

~~~So, with George in my life now, and with trying to finish my novel asap (I plan to have it written by year's end), and with other big (I use this word with a smile) things that have come up, I may be off-grid more than usual. My apologies. I'm not leaving blogland, that's for sure. I'm already working on spinning some holiday erotica.   Be well!

    George sounds as if he has promise...

  4. Do you have readers signed up?

    Can't have enough readers. (or feedback)

  5. Debra, he has. I revised what I wrote, to give George some credit for making his move (again and again). Smiles.

    EC, thank you, friend.

    JoJo, thank you. Yes, I have a lot of things to wink about already, if you know what I mean. Hallelujah!

    Mac, that's extremely generous of you to ask. Yes, I do. I have some of the best (Ninja himself and the beer guys plus Elsie). But you can't have enough. It's fraught with typos and formatting messiness. SO THANK YOU. I'll keep you in mind.

    Cheers, all.
    Keep a smile.

  6. Glad things are working out with George, at the moment anyway. Happy Holidays for both of you.

  7. Well, you've put some pretty wild thoughts in my head as I swipe from my kid's Halloween buckets. Why not fill it with more steamy images as I swipe from their stockings next ;)

    Have fun with George!

  8. It's very naughty of you to have enjoyed the swirl, Robyn! May you progress to the twirl and make it last much longer.;)

  9. He must be very fond of you. We Geo.s don't reveal the other three letters of our name to just anybody.

    ReplyDelete
  10. As long as he doesn't really look like that. Because my eyes would bleed.
    Ready to read, Robyn!

  11. My Dad's name is George. Georges are reliable, keep their jobs, will respect you, etc. Sounds like things are progressing just right. I shall eagerly await holiday erotica. Until then - keep track of your candy corn, and good luck with the novel.

  12. Just so long as your man isn't made of latex....

    ReplyDelete
  13. We all need to blow off a little steam sometimes. And sometimes that steam contains a swirl or two. Just make sure it doesn't include a hoagie sandwich. Then things could get messy.

  14. Oooo, this sounds promising Robyn, but the really important question is: Does he share his chocolate? Seriously, it sounds as though things are shaping up nicely for you, which thrills me!

    ReplyDelete
  15. lol I hope he never ever posed like that. Or pees in the shower. If he ever gives you any invitations to lick, don't!

    ReplyDelete
  16. The song George of the jungle just popped into my head. If he has to wear latex-i just pictured him in a big condom like Leslie Nielsen:) It sounds like things are going well and that is great!

  17. To your first point, like reading Al's posts and having a conversation with him about patriotism, I have a deep respect for anyone willing to join the military, especially in this murky climate of political machinations. I know a lot of vets and it always shocks me how they are just people. Regular folks thrown into extraordinary circumstances.
    To the next point, that's hot! He's all up into the latex!?! I immediately got Montell Jordan's "This is How We Do It" stuck in my head.
    Finally, judging by how long other comments are, should I train myself to be more pithy?

  18. Aw, I'm happy for you, Robyn. He sounds like a nice guy. Hope you have lots of fun. Good luck with the novel!

    ReplyDelete
  19. George sounds pretty cool. I like men who giggle about masturbation.

    Love,
    Janie

  20. Will you be celebrating Festivus with George's family soon? Love the photo, and I just peeked at the hidden sandwich one! Just don't give George "hand," as you're the one in charge baby! Have fun with your latex man, and I can't wait to read your novel! I'm so excited for you, Robyn!

  21. He sounds like a nice guy. Just let him know that if he treats you poorly, we're coming for him.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Very cool! This George sounds very promising. Keep us posted :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. He sounds like he has a great sense of humor.

  24. Hurrah that you've found a George you like! And hurrah for your book too. :) And hurrah for you (just cuz I like ya).

    Have a great rest of the week. See you when you've time to pop in. :)

  25. This made me think of the line: "And you want to be my latex salesman!"

    ReplyDelete
  26. I <3 George. There is something to be said (breathlessly) for stable men with an eye for detail.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thank you all. You're so kind, funny and supportive.

    Michael, I'll tell him, and I'll show him your mechanical bull riding skills too. Thank you.

    Julie, good point. I thought about that episode - the one with "the challenge." Alas, it's not so relevant to my life - the need to master my domain, that is.

    Be well and keep a smile, dear peeps.

  32. Greetings human, Robyn,

    Your thoughts on Veteran's Day are duly noted, my lovely human friend.

    Gorge on George, pawhaps?

    See you latex, dear human.

    Pawsitive wishes,

    Penny :) x

  33. I tried to replicate that George post once, and they arrested me for crimes against humanity.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Abstain or masturbation...? Hmmm a tough one haha

    Hope these guys arent aware of your writing about them on this site - they might get the latex out and go all Gimp on you ahaha

    Good luck with that novel! Nice to see it finished! x

  35. Thanks for the smile. I don't know if dragons are allergic to latex. Will have to find out. Hope you're being very productive and having a very good time as well! Dragon Hugs!

  36. George of the jungle!
    Thanks for the shout out Robyn...
    Enjoy yourself!

  37. Although your George may not have an "issue" with shrinkage, I can pretty much guarantee he experiences it. How do we LIVE with those things?

    ReplyDelete
  38. I have an Uncle George. He's awesome. I hope your George is just as awesome! Have fun!!
