    We were offered free tickets to a local production of Damn Yankees tonight. I didn't want to go, because I had been in a community theatre production of it in Louisville, Kentucky (!) 42 years ago. I was in the baseball team chorus, and sang "Yah Gotta Have Heart" enough times to last me a lifetime. I couldn't listen to that again. icon_razz.gif

    So I ambushed my husband a little while ago, and sang him the song by Lola, the Devil's femme fatale assistant, with some lyric alterations and a dreadful Gwen Verdon imitation:

    Whatever Ro-bert wants, Ro-bert gets
    And little man, little Ro-bert wants you

    Make up your mind to have, no regrets
    Recline yourself, resign yourself, you're through

    I always get, what I aim for
    And your heart and soul, is what I came for.

    Whatever Ro-bert wants, Ro-bert gets
    Take off your shorts, don't you know you can't win

    You're no exception to the rule,
    I'm irrezeestable you fool, Give in! Give in! Give in!


    I had him laughing in tears, but he did take off his shorts. We won't go into that here, but we did have some fun. icon_redface.gif

    I hope you guys also do silly and stupid unplanned stuff with your man, or else what's the purpose of having one? icon_wink.gif

    LOL! I'm about as erotic as a day-old plate of spaghetti. It's precisely because I'm NOT erotic that I rely upon humor and unexpected surprises to amuse my husband. As long as I can make him smile & laugh I hope he'll always wanna keep me around. icon_biggrin.gif

    Just silliness. And I wonder why a guy who's only 23 isn't just as silly. I thought you were just as idiotic in your previous incarnation on this site.

    Or do you have an age bias, that guys our age can't be allowed to be silly & stupid when we want? Yah know we can, and probably better than you, because we've been at it far longer.

    Sorry if it doesn't suit your taste. Be aware that what you think is clever & funny today will be ridiculed tomorrow. Life is a conveyor belt, and you're moving along it to obsolescence & irrelevance, just as fast as I am. icon_cool.gif

    Wow way to make shit up for no fucking reason.
    The part about taking off your shorts and whatever the fuck else, that's TMI because nobody wants to think about yo nasty ass unclothed.
    My boyfriend is 54 as you know and we're both silly together a lot, but I don't fucking come online and post about it because nobody gives a shit.

    Well, you know I love to do goofy things, stupid things, inappropriate things for my age. And so does my husband. Because maybe it means we're defying our ages, refusing to conform to them, not accepting the stereotypical roles we're supposed to have.

    Our bodies may be old, but I hope our minds are still young and nonsensical. When I was a child in the 1950s I remember adults in their 50s and older being so grim & dour, no life about them. I never wanted to grow up to be like that.

    And I hope I haven't. I have my serious side, but I also hope I haven't lost my silly & stupid side. The day I forget how to be childishly ridiculous is the day I should die.

    Actually I didn't know (or remember) that your BF is 54. I'm glad you're silly together. And I would give a shit if you posted about it.

    I think that would be great. Gawd knows it would be better than the other tripe that gets posted here.

    I like to hear about real guys, doing real things. That's why I post a lot of the stuff I do here. So post. I'll read it, and enjoy it. icon_biggrin.gif
