If You Go Down To The Woods Today
This wasn’t what Bill had expected to happen when he’d told Babs how they could put the spark back in their relationship. She’d reacted surprisingly well and promised to make it happen.
Bill had been full of hope when she’d driven them out to the woods, wearing the outfits she’d chosen. He was dressed as a lumberjack and, better still, Babs was a dead ringer for Daisy Duke.
So why were they here, an hour later, with no one else for company, having done nothing but cut up dozens of tree trunks? This wasn’t Bill’s idea of getting physical.
“Babs, darlin’,” Bill whined. “What’s happenin’ here? Where’s the others?”
“Others? We don’t need anybody else,” Babs answered.
“Course we do,” said Bill, “but why have you dragged me out here to chop wood?”
“It’s what you asked for,” Babs came back.
“Right after you said our relationship was doomed. I said we needed to communicate better and you said we should go logging.”
“I said we should go DOGGING.”
