I’m extremely late in posting this story, but better late than never. I actually wrote it last week, but I was in Seattle for a conference and didn’t get a chance to post it.
“You’re a werewolf?” she asks.
“A wereman, actually.”
“So every month you turn into a . . . man?”
“A different kind of man. An accountant actually.” I blush. “Just a frenzy of budgets and data sheets.”
She looks pensive. “That’s cool. You could do contract work, do a month’s work in three days and rent an office on a per-day basis to save money.”
“Okay.” This is getting serious for a first date. “What about you? Your profile said you’re a succubus, right?”
Now she blushes. “Not exactly. I just exploit men’s useful abilities.”
“Oh. So you’re . . .”
She nods. “I’m a practibus.”

You’re too funny. Love the line, this is getting serious for a first date. The imagery of them sitting there as if they met online is priceless.

You seem like such a mild-mannered individual in person. I’d say the inner workings of your mind is quite another story. This is hilarious and provides me with all sorts of mental images. They do say that practice makes perfect. 😉 Always happy to see your green tower in the Hollywood Squares.

Odd couple, and yet, that seems to be going better than most first dates I could recount, LOL! Very funny stuff, David. A practibus, eh? Wish I could put that on the “looking for” column on my online dating profile. 🙂

Modern ideas and ancient times. You put them together well.
