Past Imperfect – #289

SR 1289

Mop-Etta: “Do you really love me?”

Gene: “With all of my heart, because that’s what the lyrics in this song say.”

Mop-Etta: “But you understand that we can never have children because, well, I don’t have any lower organs.”

Gene: “It doesn’t matter, my floor-cleansing beauty. We can always adopt. I’m sure there’s an abandoned Swiffer out there that needs a good home. Besides, I’m probably sterile from wearing these high-waisted pants.”

Mop-Etta: “I’m so happy! And horny. Take me now and show me the man you can be. But first…”

Gene: “Yes, my bleach-scented beloved?”

Mop-Etta: “Could you shove me in that bucket over there and crank me through the wringer? There are some things in my hair that you really don’t need to know about.”

  1. Lovely name for the mop, etta!!☺why was dancing with inanimate objects so popular then? It’s like some of the local movies and dramas we have here with the hero and heroine running around trees singing. They go through 7 to 10 clothes change for a 2 to 3 minute song. 😕

    • I’d have to say that dancing with inanimate objects was popular then because imagination was just a part of life. I think we’ve lost some of that, with this world we now live in, where the information overload is so overwhelming, so constant, that our children rarely have the opportunity for those quiet times of long ago, endless summer days, when the only “toy” you had was your imagination. You didn’t have video games, you didn’t have the Internet, you didn’t have so many distractions, and your mind could be your best friend, allowing you to believe that a man could dance with a mop, and find it quite lovely…

    • Well, I hope that they’re going in that direction, fingers crossed. But I do have to admit that I have a big ole stack of “uh oh” drafts sitting in a pile off to the side on my desk, sad little things where I thought I was being clever but the final verdict is that they will never see the light of day. And so it goes… 😉
