Let’s Make a Deal

9EF0FA57-2B5D-411E-A963-CA8FCDDAC5DDThey were already feeling hot and damp from the rapidly approach summer storm coming in from the north. “It’s going to be a rainy day today, I’m afraid,” Charlotte said.

“Damn, I guess we’ll have to cancel our plans,” Craig said. “I was really looking forward to going on a picnic with Frank and his wife.”

“Yeah, especially with his wife,” Charlotte mocked. “You know, I really love Frank’s beard. It makes him look so rugged, so manly. Too bad, Craig, that you’re not man enough to grow a nice beard,” she said with a wink.

“Don’t you like my baby face, woman?” Craig asked. “Come feel it. It’s as smooth as a baby’s butt. And,” he added, “I can grow a beard if I want to. I just don’t want to.”

“Oh come on, Craig,” Charlotte said. “I would love for you to grow a beard.”

“I just don’t think my face is suitable for a beard, Charlotte,” Craig said.

“Well then, maybe Frank can let me sample what it feels like, since you refuse to pacify my curiosity,” Charlotte said. “I’ve never kissed a man with a beard.”

“Let’s make a deal,” Craig said. “Next time we go out with Frank and Anita, we can do switchies. You can fool around with Frank and I’ll play with Anita. Frank tells me that she’s clean shaven down there. That way we can both, um, pacify our curiosities.”

Charlotte smiled. “Okay,” she said, “You’ve made your point. I’ll shave mine if you don’t shave yours.”

Craig laughed. “Deal!” he said.

            I’m unlike Colbert’s wife in that I like a beard. But I’m also like her…

            He has since shaved it off, apparently under pressure from his wife.

              He’s shaved it at least twice (I think only twice). The first time was required by CBS before starting the new show (following his vaca after the Colbert Report).

      I had to Google John Anderson. I’d never heard of him and never heard that song.
