Play by Ear

A man is at work one day when he notices that his co-worker is wearing an ear ring. This man knows his co-worker to be a normally conservative fellow, and is curious about his sudden change in his “fashion sense.”

The man walks up to him and says, “I didn’t know you were into earrings.”

“Don’t make such a big deal, it’s only an earring,” he replies sheepishly.

His friend falls silent for a few minutes, but then his curiosity prods him to say, “So, how long have you been wearing one?”

“Ever since my wife found it in my truck.”


Funny how our conscious plays on us sometimes. The poor chap could have easily explained that the earrings could belong to one of his co-workers whom he gave a lift that day, or something along that line.

Heck instead he probably got caught off guard and in his bid to cover his tracks (even if there wasn't any), came out with more bull to deepen the plot and end up changing his lifestyle.

It was ironical as the same thing happened to me on Fri night. So there I was home early for the first time in weeks and watching the telly with my wife. Suddenly, I get a call on my mobile phone from a friend in AdultFriendFinder. I was caught a little off guard though as I haven't had calls on my personal phone in the late evenings for quite a while since my social mates these days are mostly from work and they would usually call me on my office line. My wife gives me that quizzy look and she must be wondering when did my social life actually picked up again. On reflection, the look on my face must have been a dead give away but as usual she didn't take further issue. I guess it was my conscious at work again.. not that I had really anything to hide EXCEPT for my presence in AdultFriendFinder. But it was a pleasant surprise to get a call from her as we have all along only been corresponding via emails and sms texts and this was the first time we actually spoke.. or should I say "nearly" had a conversation.

Like Sassy would timing always sucks. Given any other day for the past 2 weeks, I wouldn't be home yet at that time. That night I was home early as I wanted to catch the news on the run up to elections. So now i have also realized that nothing good comes out with poking my nose into politics.

It was not my day and I could only managed to stutter a few sentences. Sigh, I guess I don't have practice in covert operations.

I was surprised she had a nice voice and I have this thing of associating people by their voices. That was true in my experience with George. It was not that I expected her voice to be unpleasant but I did not expect her to sound that good. She had that good feel factor... she sounded confident, articulate, sweet and friendly. If my feeling is correct, she will probably knock me out senseless when I do get to really meet her.

Ah well.... I guess I will have to leave it to fate to sort things out.

Anyway George has gone back to KL and yes George, it has been my pleasure to show you around. We'll catch up some more next time we meet

Sometimes I felt that god is a little naughty and play pranks on us. Untimely incidents happen to all of us. Maybe its a lot safer to just sms.

Sassy ..... this is a strange relationship I have with AdultFriendFinder. My issue of timing seems to only happen most time with people I meet from here

Poison... I think that God has me on his highlighted list and gets his kicks from my confusion

Well, better luck next time, and if there should be a next time.... breath hard and stay calm... from what you have written... I believe it is probably just a friendly call?

BTW, I'm sure she'll turn out to be a knock-out since she sounded so good. Hope you'll meet up with her soon.

Make it your challenge.... turn me ON!!
