Past Imperfect – #113

SR 1113

The progressive crowd at this trendy Greenwich Village nightclub was thrilled when Millicent and Penelope dared to openly show their love in a public setting. In reality, there was no showing, there was only Millie’s brooch becoming ensnared in Penny’s décolletage as they both raced to get the drummer’s phone number. The drummer, who had no décolletage but wished that he did, cringed at the estrogen onrush and silently pleaded for his lover to intervene. The lover, seated at the table on the left and just now realizing that something was amiss, chose not to intervene, because he wanted to keep his job at Macy’s and he really wasn’t all that fond of the drummer.

  1. Brian, We are having a family reunion of first cousins at the end of March and I am wondering if I sent you some old family photos would you write some funny ‘stories’ about each. I understand this is an unusual request, and I’m willing to pay you, but I thought it would be a fun way to revisit some of the family shots we all have seen through the years.
    I love your writings and have attempted to do what you do, but I just don’t have your bent. Let me know what you think.

    • Hi, Margo! This actually sounds like a lot of fun, and I would be happy to do it, with only a few conditions that are (hopefully) easily-satisfied.The first is that you promise to be honest and let me know if any of my little “creations” are not satisfactory. It won’t bother me at all if you don’t care for something, and I like the mental challenge of coming at it from another angle. We want to make sure this little package of goodies is just right for the reunion so that everybody (or at least those with a sense of humor) enjoys it. The second is that, with your permission, of course, I would like to post some of these on my own blogs. I won’t run anything that you would prefer I not, but hopefully there will be a few we can expose to the world without anyone getting upset. We can work out the details later. Let’s start by you sending me a couple photos as test runs for me to tinker with, and then we’ll go from there. The email address for this blog is . Thanks for the opportunity!
