George was my first

George was my very first and I cannot help but think about him sometimes. He was much older than me, but it didn't matter. There was a certain charm about him despite the obvious dents the years had presented him. He taught me all I needed to know, when to go slow, when to pick up pace. He was quiet mostly. He never complained, not when I accidently lost him or even when I made him purple all over in the belated spirit of Hippie love. We weren't together long. It was my fault - I passed him up for a younger model. All these years later though, I still miss that little runaround.

Wow - that is an incredible story!! It was moving because I think a lot of people can relate (at least, it sounds just like my "first", too), and I could not help but wanting to read more!

Did someone say Charm?

When do we get to see a picture of you Autumn?

Do you now King Diamond or Yngwie Malmsteen?

Autumn Storm said...

Thanks, Justin. A little more: We used to ride around London playing Madness' "I was driving in my car" at maximum volume with the windows rolled down. Good times!

Hi Jerk, few men are as charming as you ;-).
King Diamond or Yngwie Malmsteen???

BTW Goerge was a Mini (a car).
Sorry, Justin, just amusing myself with nonsense :-)

Why you taudry little vixin, you!! Who else could make driving sound so seductive!!!

(note to self::: never forget to look for double meanings in Autumn's posts... lol)

Sounds like you passed up a good thing. Live and learn.

You are quite the writer dear. Superb in fact. You might be interested to hear about my own very "first". Only he is a real man - actually named George, indeed, a true hippie who still adores the color purple, and last September, after 34 years of life in between, we found each other again. It is a miracle of sorts, and we are deliriously happy.

I thought you were talking about sex too! You are ever so tricky. That or Justin and I have our minds in the gutter. Or BOth?!?

Justin Thyme said...

(I think it might be a little bit of both, Tiff... LOL)

Autumn Storm said...

tsduff, what an absolutely wonderful story! I've seen the pictures of course and the delirious happiness is obvious for all to see.

J&T :o)

That picture is you?

Oh my......you've got "Fun" hair.

Lovely, just lovely.

Aren't King Diamond And Yngwie from Denmark? I'm terrible with countries and who's from where.

Autumn Storm said...

Jerk, they could be for all I know, the names mean nothing to me.
'"Fun" hair' - what is fun hair?! lol

My first car looked like a Pinto...I don't miss him.

Jerk Of All Trades 2.0 said...

Don't play coy with me my dear, I think you can figure out what "Fun" hair is.

Geez, I'm getting all hot and bothered just thinking about it.

SweetK said...

I was gonna leave a comment about my first, too, until I read the "Mini" comment.
I guess it's official--I'm a pervert. I thought you meant, well...you know. :o)

Very clever!
