Deb, over at Nope, Not Pam, has this weekly challenge called A Letter a Week where she gives us a place, an emotion, an adjective, a verb, and an animal all starting with the same letter. Then she asks us to write a post using those items and the letter she has given us, which this week is the letter L.
Here are Deb’s L-words:
Place – laundromat
Emotion – lovey-doveyness
Adjective – lamentable
Verb – launch
Animal – lemur
He walked into the laundromat wearing the most ridiculous pair of trousers I’d ever seen. They were thick, horizontally striped black and white pants.
I know I should have just minded my own business and ignored his deplorably bad taste in pants, but instead, I walked up to him and said, “What were you thinking when you decided to buy that lamentable pair of pants? It make you look like you skinned a couple of lemur tails and wrapped them around each leg.”
That’s when he launched into a diatribe about how the lemur is his spirit animal. Then he came right up to me and started sniffing me. I thought he was some kind of pervert and I half expected him to ask me to let him sniff a pair of my panties. But instead, he said, “Did you know that lemurs use their sense of smell to communicate with other animals?”
At that point he moved in even closer and started sniffing my neck and ear. I didn’t know what to do, so I just stood there as he continued to sniff. I inexplicably found myself getting aroused by his bizarre behavior, and I actually started sniffing him back. He really smelled good. It was all very erotic.
Long story short, and as unlikely as it seems, our lives together, the two of us, me and my darling lemur-man, have been in a state of absolute lovey-doveyness ever since.
