A nice surprise...

Post by Harry » Sat May 05, 2018 2:59 pm

This morning I stepped out of the shower and as I was busy "flossing" various part of my anatomy there was a knock on the front door... Fortunately my Good Lady answered it and then I heard her tread on the stairs and she presented me with a package

I opened it up and was delighted to find a copy of "A Fool And His Eel"
As an avid reader :read: I am really looking forward to settling down with this book, especially as I shall be visiting Ashmead in July for 2 nights...
A VERY pleasant surprise from SWMBO...

Hope there’s no correlation between you standing there “flossing” your bits and the title “ A Fool and his Eel ?????????

A fine book Harry. Now can you explain your "flossing"? To the best of my knowledge you can floss teeth but that's about it....... :Confused: :Hahaha:

Certainly Paul.... with one end of the towel in ones left hand, swing the other end between ones legs and grasp the free end.... raise both hands to waist height and being a see-sawing motion with both hands whilst "Flossing" ones nether regions until dry... :Cool:

Beware... too vigorous a motion could end up with the smell and sensation of burning of said nether regions and a temporary curtailment of conjugals due to severe friction burns... you have been warned :shocked:

"Floss" boldly men (but not too hard) :Thumb:
