Good Vibrations

Our company commander is a really nice guy. Simple, but nice. He gets flustered easily, but he's good natured about it.

We have a psychiatry tech who everyone loves. She's quirky, but in a good way. In fact, she's the one who introduced me to the Sandman series that I've been reading voraciously (and intend to buy as soon as I get back).

Well, for whatever reason, she decided she had an important question for her commander. So right in front of everyone, she calls him on the phone and asks this all important question.

"Am I going to have trouble getting my vibrator through customs?"

Based on her reaction, her question must have been greeted by silence followed by some pretty uncomfortable stammering. I very much wish I could have seen his face.

Well, he must have recovered enough to ask some pertinent questions that might help him give an answer. Because no one could hear his side of the conversation, we're not entirely sure how he asked the next question, but the tech's response was, "Well, it's a Rabbit and it's really expensive, so I don't want to just leave it here!"

We each have our pressing issues, I guess.

Just another in the 1,000,001 things that make the ladies "naturally" funnier than the guy's.

Perhaps after the Sandman series is complete, a review of the Rabbit series is in order?


Be safe !

Hmmm... Maybe the more appropriate song would have been...

Wait for it

Enter Sandman?

1) Happy new Year, Doc!!

2) Neil Gaiman has a few novels out as well as the Sandman Series; Neverwhere is brilliant. I actually have an extra copy I could send you, just need an address.

3) The rabbit is the cadillac of's a pertinent question IMHO. She sounds like a blast *grin.

Kat appears to be well versed in this sort of thing . . . should I have known about this before you left?

Little late now . . .
