Career Changes

The joy of living in Washington DC is that politics always makes the headlines. And right behind those stories are the scandals.

This morning, I was in the kitchen reading the paper as Larry came down the stairs.

S: Well, there's more about the senator's sex scandal.
L: Which senator?
S: It seems that two more guys have come forth claiming that Daniel Craig paid them money for sex.
L: I think you mean Larry Craig. Daniel Craig is the James Bond guy.
S: Oh...same thing.
L: The rest of the world might differ with you.
S: Whatever. One of the guys is that Mike Jones guy who also had sex with Ted Haggard. He seems to be doing everyone these days. How is this guy not knowing he hooks up with famous married guys?
L: Some people are more popular than others.
S: Did you know he gets $200 an hour? I'm totally in the wrong job.
L: You make good money. (He began to calculate my hourly wage.) OK, I was wrong. He makes at least 75% more per hour than you.
S: How great would that be? I could do that an hour or so each day and still watch Ellen.
L: Are you thinking of a career change?
S: I'm just saying, we could write off the guest room as a business expense.
L: You may not be able to command the same salary.
S: Who wouldn't pay $200 for a body like this?

(With that I make a muscle man pose that pretty much looks exactly like what Corey does when showing people how strong he is.)

L: (pauses) You're learning about economies of scale in your finance class, right?
S: Yep.
L: Perhaps you should look over that chapter again. Besides, you'd have to have sex with old decrepit men.
S: James bond is not old and decrepit.
L: I don't think Daniel Craig would need to pay anyone for sex.
S: You're probably right.

And so our morning began.

It sounds like you and your husband have the same sense of humor that my husband and I do. You guys are TOO FUNNY (now post a muscle man picture!)

It starts with Facebook and the next thing you know you're putting your body on craigslist (pun intended).

You can easily negotiate payment with a series of simple foot taps.

That is too funny and too twisted. We thought it was only normal here in SF to talk like that. Then again depending on where you are you can see porn stars making coffe at $tar Buck$ here. LOL I will leave out the dirty puns at this point.

That thought of sex with Daniel Craig bait-and-switch was just mean.

I guess I'm "delurking" as the blog officianodos say. I'm a friend of Kelly O's and stumbled on your blog. Nice morning! I've had similar conversations with my partner...though we never got to the point of writing off the guest room as a business expense. I like it!
