Fandango’s Flashback Friday — July 23rd

Wouldn’t you like to expose your newer readers to some of your earlier posts that they might never have seen? Or remind your long term followers of posts that they might not remember? Each Friday I will publish a post I wrote on this exact date in a previous year.

How about you? Why don’t you reach back into your own archives and highlight a post that you wrote on this very date in a previous year? You can repost your Friday Flashback post on your blog and pingback to this post. Or you can just write a comment below with a link to the post you selected.

If you’ve been blogging for less than a year, go ahead and choose a post that you previously published on this day (the 23rd) of any month within the past year and link to that post in a comment.

Kick Me


“So what shall we do for kicks today?” Penny asked her boyfriend, Art.

“How about a road trip?” Art suggested.

“Cool! Where to?”

“We can get our kicks on Route 66,” Art answered.

“Maybe we should just stay here and kick back,” Penny said.

“Okay, fine,” said Art. “Whatcha got to drink?”

“I get no kicks from champagne,” Penny replied.

“Ain’t that a kick in the head!” said Art.

“But I do get a kick out of you,” Penny purred, winking suggestively at Art.

“Now that’s a kick-ass thing to say,” Art beamed.

“I lied,” Penny admitted. “I want to kick the shit out of you.”

“Hey, kick me while I’m down, why don’t you?” Art joked.

Penny put her arms around Art’s neck and sensually whispered in his ear, “Kick me, Art.”

“Okay, Babe, but just for kicks,” Art said as he pressed his lips to hers.
