I just received a call from Al which has cracked me up to no end.
The phone rang and I answered it like always.
He said, "What ya wearing?"
I laughed, "Hey Al."
He said, "Sher-bare, you didn't leave anything behind!"
Not understanding his remark, I repeated the last part as a question, "Anything behind?"
"Yes, like an earring or a ring...a glove or your favorite lipstick."
"I made sure I had everything." I laughed and patiently waited for him to make his point. With Al, it's always the long road.
"Don't you want a guaranteed return visit?" He asked.
Then it hit me... "How to lose a guy in 12 days" (or whatever that movie's name is...with Kate Hudson.) The girl left an object at the guy's house so she would have a reason to contact him, if he didn't call back.
He continued, "Every woman I've had over at the house for dinner or to watch a movie, has left something. Except you."
"Was it good stuff?"
"What?" He asked.
"The things they left behind?"
"Nothing that looked good on me."
I laughed, then said very seriously, "You know Al, all I left behind was great memories of a wonderful weekend. If they don't guarantee me an invite back, no amounts of jewelry, gloves, scarves or even undies left will either."
He laughed, "You make a good point." Then he cleared his voice, dropped it an octave and asked, "Soooo, what ya wearing?"
