Strays always follow me home.

Standard

When I stepped off the plane I saw what looked like the remains of a party near the gate. A few used paper plates, napkins, and three balloon arrangements. A tired looking cleaning woman was moving toward, slowly. I made eye contact while reaching for one and she shrugged. So I took it with me. As I was walking to baggage claim Rose called to say she was laid out with a migraine, and to hop on a shuttle. I wasn’t sure I’d be able to take them on a shuttle, but when I got outside, it wasn’t so much outdoors as a tunnel. If I ditched them there, they’d just drift among the cabs and buses, prolly causing some sort of international security incident. I smiled at the shuttle driver and said yes, firmly, that the stray balloons were with me, and coming along.

I think they’re happier here with me anyway.

True Story.

Standard

Jonny says:
A complete stranger proposed to me once.

Amberocity! says:
really?
why arent you married?

Jonny says:
Well, sort of.
She actually asked Ross if he thought I’d want to marry her, while I was in the toilet.

Valancy Jane says:
Jonny, I’m not a COMPLETE stranger.

Jonny says:
He said to ask me when I got back.
And she did, and I said, “no thanks”, or words to that effect.
lol VJ

Amberocity! says:
hehehe
jonny you broke that poor girls heart

Valancy Jane says:
*sniffle*

Jonny says:
Ah, she’ll get over it.

Valancy Jane says:
It’s bad enough that you said no, but now you insist on telling the story.

Amberocity! says:
it takes a lot to ask the man you love best friend to ask the man you love to marry you

Jonny says:
VJ, you were a complete stranger that time when you banged on my door at 3 in the morning, stark naked.
You know, the night we met.
And you asked to marry me.

Amberocity! says:
did you get pictures jonny?
please say yes

Jonny says:
I only said no because I was having sex with two other women at the time.

Amberocity! says:
hehee

Valancy Jane says:
I see.

Jonny says:
You know, as I was answering the door.

Amberocity! says:
rosy palm and her five sisters

Valancy Jane says:
I can see how that would be disrespectful to them.

Jonny says:
On the other hand, as I recall they couldn’t speak english.
either that I just wasn’t listening.

Amberocity! says:
the other hand couldnt speak english?

Jonny says:
Don’t be silly now. I’m telling a sensible and completely plausible story.

Amberocity! says:
hehehe
this from a man who said “toilet gremlins” today

Jonny says:
And that a gazelle climbed out of the freezer and disposessed my house.
which is how I became the Belgian ambassador to weightwatchers.
