maybe it’s me (again), but…

… aren’t the things you take away from books weird sometimes?

I interrupted my hibernation on the weekend to brave the masses and go and buy some groceries.

As I drove past a house with a whole heap of washcloths on the line I immediately thought “gee, those guys have been going at it”.

What. The. Hell. Apparently I now associate washcloths with gay guys. O_o

Because it couldn’t possibly be me, I’m blaming all the m/m authors in the whole wide world for constantly writing about stashes of washcloths kept in bedside drawers for the ever romantic post-coital clean ups.

I’m also intrigued as to whether this is really the case and am calling upon the guys and gals out there to tell me (a) if the washcloth thing is true and (b) does a line full of ’em provide an indication of the amount of sex someone is having?

What?! I am so NOT weird!

    a) No. Or maybe I just don't have enough sex.
    b) No. Line full of washclothes probably indicates that there is someone bedridden in the house.

  2. Tam says:

    I'm thinking a baby with diarrhea. LOL I do have a bunch of wash clothes in the bathroom and in books they do go to the bathroom usually to get it. But being a girl my washcloth experience is somewhat different perhaps.

    But then I use a clothes dryer so that no nosey parker going to get her groceries can speculate on the quantity of sex in my life (or lack thereof). 😛

    Not being a gay man I can't say for sure but I think they may also use other things besides wash cloths for the romantic post-coital clean ups.

    As for the line full of wash cloths I'd say they just don't have a dryer (poor things, how sad for them) and that certain people should not be so nosey of others wash 😉

    I think you should get your mind out of the gutter Kris *g*

    Ummm…..jury is out sweets 🙂 Honestly, I've never thought about it and…thinking about my limited experience in such things…I wouldn't know 😦 Sorry!

    I so love the way your mind works *grin*

    Matthew: I knew I could count on you *beams* , although part of your answers are very disappointing for those of us who wish to live vicariously. 😦

    Tam: That would explain the romper that was hanging up next to them when I checked it out again on the way back home. LOL. Nosey?? Me?? 😉

    Lily: Now don't be sexist, Lily, There could be heaps of chicks out there who have anal sex and have stacks of washcloths in their bedside drawers for the same purpose. Being innocent, I only found out about the washcloth practice from m/m romance.

    BTW, see above comment to Tam re: my supposed nosiness.

  7. Kris says:

    Ingrid: You think that's it?? That would probably explain a lot. *snicker*

    The Innocent but Discerning Orannia:

    “I so love the way your mind works *grin*”

    *blushes* Thank you. 🙂

  8. Ingrid says:

    You are probably a lost case already Kris.

  9. Sarah says:

    Maybe they're just uber clean???

  10. jitterbug says:

    LOL Kris!!! Of course you're not nosey or weird… you have just an inquiring mind 😉

    Since I've started reading m/m romances I've found myself wondering about some of the people I see around. I mean, I know there must be lesbians and gays where I live, I just think that they're probably in the closet or very, very discreet. But sometimes I see maybe two guys speaking to each other and looking at each other like the rest of the world doesn't exist, and I wonder. Maybe they're just best friend, or maybe they are just drunk enough to have started pondering about the mysteries of the universe, but I can't stop hoping that maybe what I'm seeing is the beginning of a wonderful relationship… What? Yeah, I know, I should probably get a love life of my own ;P

    (please note that while m/m romances have left you musing about guys going at it every hour of the day and the night, they have turned me into a sappy sentimental girl seing romance everywhere *batting innocently the eyes* And you had the gall to call me a perv! ;P)

    How flattering to gay men! But, you know, there are those pop-up wipes now.

  12. Kris says:

    Ingrid: True. LOL.

    Sarah, who's new avi is pretty: Could be, although I think my version is way more interesting. 😉

  13. Kris says:

    Sara: An inquiring mind, you say? That'll work. *writing that down*

    So you are staring at strangers in the street and making moo moo eyes at them… imagining them in a r/ship AND having sex… that's still a perve, hun, no matter how much you wrap it up in sugar.
    Kidding. *not really*

    From now on you shall be known as 'Sara the Sap'. 😉

    K Z: You're thinking 'let's just clean up all this lube and spunk with an anti-bacterial swipe and chuck it in the bin beside the bed with all the used condoms'?? Gee, and I thought I wasn't romantic. *snicker*

  14. Tracy says:

    Oh Kris, Kris, Kris. How your mind works just fascinates me sometimes. 🙂

    I am not gay so don't know the answer but I would think that the washcloths would just indicate clean people or a family with children. My kids go through a shitload of washcloths in one week.

    Very efficient thinking KZ!

    *wonders why she seems to evoke this kind of response*
