Hypothetically speaking

You know how sometimes you see someone - a work colleague, for example - during the day and the first thing that pops into your head is the memory of an erotic dream you had about them the night before that you'd totally forgotten about until the second you saw them in the flesh?
No, me neither, because of course I don't have erotic dreams... certainly not about anyone other than Hubby.
But if I did, I'm sure I would find it really difficult to not blush, and I can't help wondering would I get an odd look on my face at the 'memory' of seeing them naked in my dream?
It could be quite embarrassing.
Hypothetically speaking, of course.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about? No? Well then, I'll move along.

Some of you may remember I went on a little excursion to Paris last October with my mother and two sisters. Normally what happens after I go away somewhere is that I write a nice long story about it. For some reason I had some trouble with this trip - perhaps because it was such a special one for me, or perhaps because I really wanted the story to be a good one, considering some of my most important 'critics' were actually along for the ride, so there was just a teensy bit of pressure on me there.
Either way, I finally finished it.
In truth, I don't think it's my best work at all. In fact, I'll probably go back to it after a while and change a whole bunch of stuff.
Nonetheless, I sent it on to the gals and they seemed to enjoy it, so I figured since you guys have so much time on your hands, I'd post it here for you to read in your hours of leisure and sweet repose.

I should warn you: it's Very Long. But if you've nothing better to do, then you can click here to have a read.

Well that's it for now, from me.
The brilliant, super-duper entertaining post I should put up this week in order to win over your votes in these last 2 days seems to have escaped somehow, so I'm afraid this will have to do for now.

Oh, you mean like the hypothetical younger brother (younger, but nothing criminal) of one of your best mates?

Reluctant Nomad said...

I have too many of them so I know all about what you know nothing about! :-)

My mind is buzzing full of wonderful things to write about to wow people into voting for me but I can't be arsed (must have been here too long if I'm using that term!) to write them down.

beadinggalinMS said...

Terri now my curiousty of your profile picture has been cured. I luved your story :)

jason evans said...

Did you have any moments where you forgot it was just a dream (hypothetically speaking)?

kyknoord said...

I'm glad we're speaking hypothetically, because the thought of an erotic dream featuring any of my colleagues is extremely shudder-worthy.

LiVEwiRe said...

It's not the dreams at night that get me in trouble, it's the daydreams I'm having while I'm right there talking with them. Er, hypothetically speaking, of course... ;)

Spookie the Warrior said...

Livewire - hehe I can just picture the scene ;-)

Spookie - So, we're all in agreement then. Good.

eKapa - Who me? Never! I'm the epitome of innocence, I swear! Oh, and for the record, sometimes it's best to NOT remember them!

Erotic dreams? I hardly ever get those, uh, hypothetically speaking.
But if I were to have one... I would hypothetically giving them that "knowing" look.

Reluctant Nomad said...

Actually, I don't use bollocks that often unless referring to 'the dog's bollocks'. There are a whole lot of English slang words and phrases that are very easy to pick up but I've tried to resist most as I'm not that keen on them.

'skint' - I like.
'minger' - no like.
'mate' - sounds aggressive even if used in a friendly fashion.
'gutted' - no like.
etc, etc, etc.
