Olive Garden Dom

So all of our family’s celebratory dinners are resigned to being spent at Olive Garden. The Salad, the Fettuccine Alfredo and the service… MY GOD the Service! The other day we found ourselves there again. A familiar face approached our table smiling subtly as he approached. First off he’s a charmer, but you expect that from a waiter, and I bet he frequently gets good tips. I have no idea if he’s a family man but he certainly was good.

Now realize he’s not one of those over enthusiastic young men. No, this man is mature with a salt and pepper scruff and a delicious Slavic accent to stir things up a bit more. I was wearing a lovely low cut number and he didn’t hesitate to look knowing I saw him look. It was the only time during the meal he wasn’t directly next to and above me.

Most of the flirtation was his charisma with the entire table. Touches were only exchanged subversively through grazes of fingers in handing dishes back and forth and profuse thank yous however he had something else up his sleeve.

The cheese grater made it’s first appearance as our first salad arrived. He asked me directly how much cheese we wanted and I. Said. LOTS! Oh he emptied that graters contents all over our salad resting on the tray and he made sure to show us ALL. Fuck it was hot. The second salad came and was placed on the table Right next to me. The cheese grater made it’s second appearance and he began turning that crank from up high. He was marking me with Parmesan! I’m surprised I didn’t blush when I said “I think that’s enough” and he replied “I don’t think you think that’s enough.”and he just kept on applying the cheese. Everyone laughed but I think he knew he was making me hot.

By the time our meal came I was All about the Cheese. Whip it out, churn that crank faster, higher Yes get it all over the table… but everyone wanted what he was shredding. I could tell he had wooed us all with his tool. Bravo Sir… bravo.

Tie vs Belt

Let me explain the choice I’ve made. I was not hasty in deciding. I weighed my options and the versatility of each implement and the obvious leader for me was the Tie.

You see it has more power than you think. The belt can restrain and the belt can cause pain but the Tie taunts sensuously from across a dinner table. It can draw your eye in to the design teasing you with its silk threads, giving you illusion of gentleness, yet when applied to the skin can tighten almost unforgiving due to the weft.

But what matters the most beyond that is The Hand applying the pressure… tying the knot… restraining the body.

You see I’m not just looking for you to hurt me I also want you to woo me. The belt just isn’t center stage. All I want is what is hanging down your chest resting gently above your heart right where I want to be.


Even at my age,
despite the fact that I am a parent,
that I have seen awful things,
that I am in a tenuous relationship at best,
I still posses a hopeful innocence.

This does not mean I identify as a little girl.
This does not mean I am ignorant.
It does mean that at times I am reluctantly gullible.
It also means it is easy to lie to me.
But I catch on quick.

My trust in new friends is something I have chosen to invest.
Giving a stranger the benefit of the doubt,
Getting to know someone unfettered,
Withholding judgement is my effort
In finding genuineness.

So when you do lie to me,
I will listen,
Until I hear it,
And my trust evaporates.
I won’t be your fool.

My innocence may draw you in,
My wit may amuse you,
My intellect though,
That will be your downfall
That will be your challenge.

I enjoy learning new things,
I am compelled to expand my knowledge,
I will puzzle out a solution,
I like a challenge.
Of course I hope you do too.

Simply nurture my innocence,
Feed my imagination,
Cultivate my trust,
Accept my limitations,
I will be an open book.

Independence Day

20130704-144551.jpg I like the idea. A day dedicated to Independence but I wish it was spelled IndepenDANCE because once you are there don’t you just want to move you feet to some great music to celebrate being free. And what better way to dance than by yourself and barefoot when nobody’s watching! SO Don’t forget to ‘do a little dance’ today…and while you are at it, all those other lines from that song by KC and the Sunshine Band. Have a great holiday!
