Yesterday I found pumpkin beer already in stores. It was a moderate consolation for it still being August…
And yes, I bought a six pack of the pumpkin beer without shame.
I hope you can find something good about August as well.
With Screams and Axes,
PIECES OF YOU
“What?” Joe asked, looking surprised. He had never heard her raise her voice or swear before.
“These photos of naked ladies,” she said, holding them up for him to see. “Why do you have these?”
“Let me see those,” Joe said calmly, reaching for the photos. Kerri relinquished them willingly but kept the angry look on her face. Joe flipped through the photos casually. “Oh, these are some photos of ex-girlfriends,” he said, setting them on the coffee table.
“Why do you have them?” Kerri asked.
“I don’t know,” Joe said, seeming to search for the right explanation. “I didn’t think they were something I had to get rid of.”
“So, you think it’s okay to keep naked pictures of your exes in our new home?” Kerri asked, hating that Joe seemed so calm like he didn’t think he’d done anything wrong.
“I didn’t think it was a big deal.”
“Why are they all asleep?”
“There’s something about a woman, naked and asleep, that I find arousing,” Joe said, looking suddenly ashamed.
“Did these women know you were taking their picture?” Kerri asked, hoping that she hadn’t moved in with some kind of pervert.
“I showed all of them after I took the pictures. None of my other girlfriends ever had a problem with this,” Joe said.
“I don’t like that you keep pictures of women you’ve slept with. It’s weird.”
“It’s not about the fact that I’ve slept with them, it’s not like those are trophy pictures. It’s just one of those things,” Joe said, trying to explain.
“One of those things?” Kerri asked.
“Yeah, like a fetish. This is my fetish,” Joe admitted, avoiding her eyes.
“Why isn’t there one of me?” She asked him.
