buysexual

a friend of mine was reading a book. (claire voyant - saralee rosenberg. must give credit where it is due.)
i cant tell you what its about
i dont know, and i didnt ask
but she laughed out loud
so of course i asked what was funny
so she said that a character in the book said of another that she was bisexual

2nd person: what?!
1st person: yeah. as long as i'd buy things for her, she was sexual.

now, if i was actually reading the book, i wouldnt admit to it
no matter how good the line was
but i wasnt
so i can blog about it while still keeping my manliness

Dating is overrated.

So I've heard.

Monkey Man said...

Groooan. I wouldn't even admit I had the conversation.

A 'friend' mmhmm. I'm sure your 'friend' is totally enjoying this book.

diane - ok. i'll hold off for a while then.

monkey man - i did. i really did.

monique - i think she is. i wouldnt lie. i've watched chicflics. and enjoyed some. but i would not read chic-lit. it makes me have a reaction akin to downing an entire bottle of syrup of ipecac. not pleasant.

So....are you subliminally saying in actuality that you ARE reading the book since you already admitted you wouldn't admit to it?

I think I hurt my brain with that question.

Surely your manliness is not threatened by finding a play on words funny?

Irish Gumbo said...

Wait, if you buy stuff for people, they will be sexual?!?

Man, no wonder this is a consumer culture!

Brings a new meaning to "Best Buy"...

marla - nope. i'm sorry i made your head hurt...

secret one - no it is not. thats why i went out and said so. and although i dont like puns, this one is not really a pun.

irish - i cant imagine a seasoned veteran like you doesnt know that trick. you're hustling us, aren't you...
a best buy indeed!

Beth said...

Is this why I married my husband... because he bought things for me?

I feel betrayed. :)

Brian Miller said...

you realise that in this day and age, having that conversations makes you hip...so...you are alright.

Noelle said...
