This is why I have no desire to do the FWB (Friends with benefits) thing.

Leading up to it, you’re all worked up, the world looks bright and shiny cuz you’re about to shake the birds from their nests. Yay.


Then,  moments after you’ve given each other soggy knickers, there’s that moment of silence. (Which is where the love would take over, if it was actually there.)

Suddenly you’re playing a scene from “A Christmas Story”  with Ralphie and Flick.


Flick is left, wondering what the hell just happened! Invariably, one of you is hoping that someone will yell “fire” so you can make a a quick exit…until the next time. Wash, rinse, repeat!

No thanks.


Yours Truly,



Published by: JB chants

I was contacted by OkCupid a month after signing up, telling me I was in the top 5% response rate and asking my secret. I was stunned. I was in my 50's! Beats me! It's not as though I posted racy photos or I was plagued by blinding beauty! However it served it's purpose,in terms of finding dates,but finding a mate? Not so much. Along the way, I had some pretty nutty encounters, some more lethal than others. While my blog started as a retelling of these amorous tales, it's morphed into a myriad of stories, including many from my time on the planet. They range from working with the amazing Henry Winkler, auditioning for Nadia Boulanger, an attempted assault by one of Al Capone's retired former henchmen, and offering a homeless man (who was also a convicted murderer) a place to stay for the night. While most of this is older material but I'm considering penning epilogues or postmortems from my post pandemic, post #metoo perspective, as well as sharing more. So many stories to tell! Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!
