At that moment, Gigi’s Hunk of Burnin’ Love walked in with a friend. I immediately had to check out the over-fifty male who stood at least 6’5”. It was, in fact, the same Greek god I’d bumped into at Iggly Wiggly’s the day before.
I quickly scanned Zeus from head to toe, stopping midway to notice he had one hell of a salami bulge.
HBL greeted Gigi with a smooch that left her breathless. HBL introduced his friend, Jackson Lee who was new in town. Jackson was the newly hired sheriff of Chelan County. HBL added that Jackson was single and lookin’ for company. Jackson wore a sheepish grin that made me want to jump his bones, or maybe I should say jump his bone.
My eyes must’ve glazed over because Gigi kicked me under the table, bringing me out of my daze. I just knew I‘d have good dreams tonight. HBL made a date with Gigi to meet at the pickup after work. I know what the Hunk of Burnin’ Love had in mind for our Gigi and she was one lucky lady. Jackson was bidding Gigi and Babs a farewell and when it came to my turn, he gently took my hand and said it was a pleasure to meet me and asked if maybe we could get together for lunch sometime. By then I was in a PP power surge and almost melted on the spot. I recovered smoothly, gave Jackson my best coquettish smile, and said my number was in the phone book.
After he left I remembered my number was no longer in the local phone book. I had it taken out after I was stalked last year by Orondo Blue, the local sewer plant manager. That was really the shits!
