I came into the kitchen where my wife made brunch, my bald pate bedazzled.
She glanced up. “Extravagant,” she said, stirring some picante sauce. “Did the kids do that to you?”
“No, Marge.” After ten years of marriage, I was ready to tell her about each fetish. “I want you to rub my bald head, Marge, like octopuses on a persimmon.
“Well, aren’t you a spunky jackal today?” she said with a laugh.
Nevermind,” I sighed and turned toward the bedroom. To my surprise she followed.
“Tell me more, you maniac.” Her hands rubbed my bedazzled head, the feel of it bewitching.
“You don’t think I’m ludicrous?”
“Anything but, my little love tart.” She smacked my butt. Hard.
I inhaled a deep breath of freedom. “Let’s do it on the snowmobile after supper! Or at an amusement park! Or in a giant fish tank!”
“Think darker,” my wife said, an aggrandizing look on her face.
Indubitably,” I replied, scratching my head between the jewels. “We could put on ‘The Outsiders’ while you rub moco on me?”
Darker,” she repeated with a glare.
I suddenly felt immured in the small bedroom, her sexual demagoguery making feel like an anathema in her eyes.
Then, she pressed the chloroform cloth over my mouth, and the world was darker indeed.
