About last weekend ...
My son went out of town this weekend to stay with a friend, which left me and my girlfriend alone for two days. We went to a local winery Saturday night for the closest thing we've had to a date in maybe ten years. It was nice.
Earlier that afternoon, though, we went to Openminds, the adult video and novelty superstore I wrote about here a few weeks ago.
That was ... strange. Not very date-like. At least not for us.
She professes to be awfully naive about some things, but I'm not buying it. Not completely, anyway.
We first met under work-related conditions through a mutual friend. But she also had a part-time job tending bar. I asked her on our first date how she met guys to date. "Oh, I never date," she said. "If I see a cute guy in the bar, I just go home with him."
To this day, I have no idea if she was serious. She has a wicked sense of humor, after all. It's something we share. In any case, I said the first thing that came to my mind: "Lucky guy."
It was not exactly love at first sight. But that was over ten years ago, and we're still together. So something went right.
Anyway ... where was I before my ADD kicked in? ... oh, yes, at Openminds.
She asked me some interesting questions while we were there. I wasn't sure I had the right answers, but here goes.
Q: Do you think they have any how-to videos here?
A: I think everything here could be construed as a how-to video.
Q: Do people really think butt plugs are comfortable?
A: Some people must, or they wouldn't sell so many. I'm sure I wouldn't, though. That's all you really wanted to know, isn't it?
Q: Does anyone buy blow-up dolls for any reason except as a gag gift?

I seem to remember asking similar questions of the first man I met after joining this site. Everything was new and interesting to me then. Not that it's old and jaded now, just more familiar.|
Q: Wouldn't it have been more polite to ask before you put that there Sweetie?
A: Yes, but you'd have said no and we'd both have missed out.
The quest for knowledge is a wonderful thing isn't it?
Naivety tinged with a touch of "knowing" keeps men guessing and on their toes. You love it.
