I Swear I'm Not Researching Hookers. I Swear.



So I'm at the library the other day. It's about 6:30 and someone from my wife's book club approaches.

Book Club Lady: Oh my God Zibbs. Funny to see you here.

Me: Hey - how you doin'? Do you come to the West Chester library often?

Book Club Lady: Once in a while. I just dropped my son of at guitar lessons so I have about an hour to kill. What are you working? (She glances down at my laptop).

Me: No - I was. I'm finished now. I'm just goofin' off.

Book Club Lady: OK. Well see you later.

She walks away and I look down at the blog I had been reading*. The title of the blog that is now almost flashing like a neon sign reads.......

"HOOKERS ON PARADE"

Stupid! I wanted to yell, "I SWEAR I'M NOT RESEARCHING HOOKERS! I SWEAR...LOOK..IT'S JUST THE TITLE OF A BLOG!!" - but didn't.

*The blog I was reading was Catherinette's - but I forget the name of her blog so chime in if you know it.

I hope that pic isn't a hooker on parade.

When the guy came to hook up my computer to the wireless last week, my daughter had been playing some games on it the night before, and she had taken off her socks and threw them on the floor under the desk.

She also had lotioned up her hands while over there, so a bottle of lotion was sitting there on the desk.

It looked bad. But at the same time, it made me laugh.

My husband thinks the word "hookers" makes everything better.
Me: "We have reservations tonight at 7."
Him: "Hookers?"

Friends: "See ya'll tomorrow night."
Him: "with Hookers?"

Heeheehee.

But don't worry, I'm sure your wife will understand...

And by the way, let me know if you agree with my prediction re: the Phillies / Cards game over at

http://legalmist.blogspot.com/2009/01/my-prediction-cardinals-vs-eagles.html

Because although you've been sort of close in predicting the last two Phillies games, you were off a bit on the score, Zibbsy!

The truth is out about Zibbo!

Sassy Britches said...

Nice! Isn't it Catherinette Chronicles, or Bridget Jones has Nothing on Me?

Dr Zibbs said...

Sassy, that's it. It's Bridget Jones has Nothing on Me.

sista #2 said...

ohhh the Book Club ladies are going to be gossiping about you.

Do you know Zibbs reads about hookers while at the library??

Did you know that hookers have parades??

I bet he organizes them.

peace

Sure you weren't.....

And having seen one with my very own eyes YES that is a hooker from West Chester. One of the really expensive ones, too.

moooooog35 said...

THEY HAVE PARADES?!?!?

SkylersDad said...

I used to organize hooker parades locally until an unfortunate frostbite incident.

I hope the lady pictured in this post isn't going to be in the Hooker Parade, unless she's riding in the back of the fire engine and throwing candy.

URBAN BLONDE said...

I hope your wife doesn't get kicked out of the book club for your indiscretions. That could get nasty.

Giggle Pixie said...

Is that pic of the hooker or of the book club lady? 'Cause either way...dude!

LOL

Dr Zibbs said...

Giggle Pixie - that picture is just a random, classy, alleged hooker that I found online.

Cora said...

CLASSIC. This must be why your wife calls you a dog in your dreams. :-)

Candy's daily Dandy said...

Ha! Busted! Sometimes the kids will catch me with some questionably appropriate blog photos up while casually walking into the room. Hazard of the job!

You know that woman is going to gossip about you...but your wife is, I'm sure, much smarter than that.

buffalodick said...

If you do the math, hookers compared to wives are a bargain...

Argentum Vulgaris said...

Haven't we all been busted by spouse and/or kids and/or neighbours (or all of the above) with something innocuous on the screen that was totally misunderstood or out of context. LOL

You were researching rugby?

Chris said...

Book Club Lady lightly places her hand on Dr. Zibbs shoulder, gives him a knowing wink and says, "Whatta ya say we cut out the middle man, Zibbsy? $50 for a quickie in the reference section?"

Dr Zibbs said...

Chris - Hahahahhahaha (that means laughing)

Michelle said...

Bahahaha. That's what she gets for peeking at your monitor.

Scope said...

The book club lady clearly rveres him. She did reference him as, "My God Zibbs.".

Not Mr. Zibbs.
Not Dr. Zibbs.
Not King Zibbs.
But God Zibbs.

And by "wife's book club" he meant "cult following."

But doesn't it suck, the one time you actually weren't searching for hooker parades, you get busted?

Ner..

Gwen said...

Riiiiight.

No really, I believe you.

Gwen said...

(NOT!)

Irish Chicken Soup said...

That's almost as bad as the time my niece caught me reading Why Women Hate Men the blog.

Catherinette said...

AHAHAHA!! That's f'ing hilarious. I think I just wet myself that you were caught reading that. :)

Hookers on Parade

Kez said...

Awwwwwkwaaaarrrrd.

tee hee.

Dr Zibbs said...

Hey look everyone! It's E=McG!

MikiStrange said...

A Hooker is a playing position in Rugby football. All you ned to do now is to read up on Rugby football and maybe buy a team shirt. When she asks where the shirt came from explain your favourite player is a hooker.
Simple really.
Good luck.
