In which Primo and I go on vacation to the time share I do not want to own but Ted stays quiet for A MONTH and I get very lazy about blogging and I discover Bernice, the woman I want to be when I am 80 years old


What is the sequence of events that led to an 80something woman - Bernice, let's call her - removing one not both of her knee-hi nylons and hurling them at her 40something lover, Raul, who speaks almost no English? And missing?

  1. Not much weight to the knee hi.

  3. There is nothing quite like throwing a lightweight, fluttery item to make you look like a rabid idiot. Have you ever tried to throw a piece of paper? Without balling it up first? The harder you try, the more ridiculous you look because it's just going to land about two inches behind you.

    That's physics.

    So I get how she only threw the one. Because it missed (of course) and that just made him laugh and her angrier and things devolved from there. You're right: the really interesting story here is what did he do to drive her to the point that she - an 80-something woman who had to have tried the fluttery-object-throwing experiment at some point in her very long life - would throw caution and experience to the wind and start chucking her underthings?

    Also, let's all be grateful she started with the knee-highs.
