A slightly weird end to the week

It's been a little strange as Fridays go, actually. Not exactly surreal, but strange nevertheless. And it started off so well, with a lovely crsip, clear afternoon when I popped along to the school to watch S, my son, playing football. He won the medal for the best performance this week, which as you can imagine made me really proud, not that I need too much encouragement. And it also made me so pleased for him because I knew just how much it meant to him... he does love his football. And he also gave a mouthful to some kid who fouled him, which I enjoyed immensely, as I like to see that he can stick up for himself when he needs to.

After the three of us got home, I spent a really nice hour or so sandwiched between the two lovely warm children on the sofa, with the cat on my lap, watching That's So Raven with them. Kid’s TV is so escapist. Anyway, I made some dinner, none of it was dropped on the carpet (I let them eat it in the lounge off the little fold up table as they were so nice and quiet!) and then I cleared up. Now, the other day I marinated some crushed garlic and fresh herbs in extra virgin olive oil, to use as a dip for some crusty bread I was having with roast chicken and salad. I’d put the dish with what was left of it – quite a lot, in fact – in the fridge, and whilst I was finishing off clearing the kitchen I decided to throw it away. It had gone kind of semi-solid, so I scooped all of it out of the dish with one of those big serving spoons and then kind if flicked it with quite a violent wrist action into my lovely Brabantia stainless steel bin (I’m a bit of a design victim). Only I forgot to open the bin lid first, so the next 20 minutes was spent wiping up melting marinated olive oil from the bin, the walls and the floor.

Then, I walked past my laptop and saw that a comment had been left on one of my earlier posts. Bearing in mind that one of the things my last post had been about was spam penis-related email I thought it was bizarrely ironic that this was what had been left… so word verification has now been turned on again. I know it’s a pain, but I’m beginning to want to kill a spam emailer. Any spam emailer, I’m not really fussy. It did get me thinking about the use of Viagra and Cialis for recreational purposes though… I bet it would be easy to get to the stage where it became a requirement in order to get an erection. Nasty business.

Which reminds me of the one time I took one. My ex and I were out with some friends, and the guy we were with had been dealing Viagra to make a bit of money on the side. We were in a restaurant, and as we were about to start our deserts he put a little blue pill on my knee, and winked at me. After all of us having a bit of a laugh about it, we both took one and then, about half an hour later, found ourselves in the car on the way home. N, my friend, had a raging hard-on but I didn’t really feel anything… by the time I got into bed, though, I thought I was going to explode. I needed sex, and I needed it badly. Unfortunately, my ex decided that it wasn’t going to happen that weekend (no idea why, it was far too long ago to remember) and I ended up with an erection like an iron bar for 48 hours. I promise you, it wouldn’t go – in the end, I wanted to cut it off. Fortunately, some might say (me, for one) I didn’t.

Okay, I’m going to relax for a while, and then hopefully find a late night movie that's worth watching. Have a good one…

Glad to see your humour is still with you. Enjoy your weekend.

WDKY said...

Thanks KD - you have a great one too.

k o w said...

First your a great dad for sitting through that monstrosity of a show. I'm sorry it even made it over to your shores.

Second, I did the Viagra thing once. Didn't need to but figured what the hell and popped it in. I had a chubby for the next 15 hours. I started remembering just how hard it was to piss with an erection. Having to bend over the... well anyway.

Olive oil is a staple of my diet.
I think I covered everything there.

sirreene said...

I did the viagra thing also ;) what's good for a goose...(took it from my father's medicine cabinet LOL)
have a great weekend!

WDKY said...

You too, Sirreene. And I hope it did something for you :-)

WDKY said...

KOW, looks like everyone's doing it the once :-)

Blondie said...

What a great dad to watch that show, like KOW said. I don't hate it that much to be honest. It's pretty bearable compared to all the japanime cartoons. lol

I know I love sex as much as the other person...but 48 hours?? There are only so many things to do. haha I'm sure its a great thing you didn't cut it off. ;-)

Zoozan said...

That had me doubled up WDKY, I imagine at the time it had an effect on your posture too.

positronic said...

Try 'U-571'. You'll be asleep by the Nth depth-charge scene. 10 times the budget and 0.1 times the thrill of 'Das Boot'. Can't say I've tried viagra. That kind of thing soesn't seem to come my way. Maybe that's good since I'll try everything once. What if someone was to offer me a hole in the head. I don't know about the experience but I2m sure the hangover from that would be a bit fatal. Don't be ashamed of being a design victim man!!! Embrace your inner buyer!!!

Jaimie said...

Wow-sorry about the Viagara thing. 48 hours? That's astonishingly long. Dinner at your house sounds good too, by the way.

unforgiving b*tch said...

48 hours? I'm so glad I'm not a guy. But what kind of woman decides she's not going to have sex with you for an entire weekend? I definitely wouldn't have let that happen...;-)

WDKY said...

Ruthie, are you having second thoughts about your holiday now?

Zooz, I think the oxygen starvation to my brain was more of a problem!

Pos, I do embrace it, believe me!

Jaimie, hi!! Love your blog, and you can come for dinner any time :-)

UB - what can I say. I think she'd started shagging her toy boy by then, anyway :-(

Blondie said...

Ah, well I am with UB on this one. I just was a bit astounded about the whole 48 hours thing. But hey, if you want to try that again...

*checking flight plans again*

Ok, I'll stop. hehe

Ms Smack said...

I love watching kids films with my little one too....

another great post...

Blueprincesa said...

watching movies and eating dinner with the kids... now that sounds like a good weekend.

WDKY said...

Rurhie, it was a bit of a waste, wasn't it? When shall I expect you?

HS - me too, and thanks.

Blue, I love a bit of time with the kids... I have a nice balance in my life, actually.

check said...

that sounds like a day well spent...
but 48 hrs!!!!! freak! some memory ha...

kimmyk said...

Ok, let me just start off by this....you wrote....

"N, my friend, had a raging hard-on but I didn’t really feel anything…"

I read that sentence 3 times thinking "WTF! I hope he didn't FEEL anything". *snort*

Ahhh...where I work we have men come in monthly for their lil blue vitamins. One time I shoved one down honey's throat-(he had no idea...i just said open up and swallow)
Let's just say....I will never do that again. It just hurt to pee.
Now I know that's TMI but I'm here to help any lady out there thinkin' "I should get my honey one of those lil blue pills." DON'T. Your vagina will kick your ass if you do.

You're a good dad. It's good to know I'm not the only one out there watching Raven with my children.

kimmyk said...

P.S.
Ladies if you suffer from a low sex drive-you can ask your doctor for Viagra/Levitra/Cialis too. It (supposedly) works the same for women as men...cept I don't think our pink parts will be inflammed for 48 hours. Errr...let's hope not anyways. (I work for 70+ physicians if you're wondering how I know this...lol )

Ok, I'm done.

Blondie said...

KimmyK,
I have heard the same thing. Increasings the libido and instensidfying... Yeah, I worked at a medical facility with an in-house pharmacy...let's just say the little pervy old man pharmacist LOVED to tell us girls about how we could have "just as much fun". lol
I forgot about that until now. Its a fun memory so, thank you!

I hope your weekend is going good WDKY!
xx

WDKY said...

Impressive, eh, Check?

Kimmy, I know women weho've taken it too. Oh, and thanks for tyhe info about your hooie :-)

Ruthie, things are... well, quiet! But not too bad, thank you.

karla said...

Might have been pertinent to check with your girlfriend regarding the possibility for sex later on before you decided to take the pill. Ah well, a penis lesson learned.

NML said...

I love that show That's So Raven! I tipped the spammers off after your comment in the Penis Parade ;-)

WDKY said...

Karla, it was my ex-WIFE, as it happens, and I'm sure that, if she hadn't been having an affair, sex would have been at least a vague possibility!

NML, I'm like the no. 1 viewer. Not by choice. (Oh, and thanks a bunch!)

Sky said...

dang WDKY, 48 hours?

WDKY said...

I know, it's impressive :-)
