fair warning

Posted in Uncategorized by bowsprite on 2011/10/14

“You remember radiotelephones? very expensive.”

One captain tells of being on a boat with his crew in Cape May when the following dialogue was overheard on a channel that a radiotelephone was using. The call was from a commercial fishing boat that often stays out for weeks at a time, from a man on the boat to a woman onshore.

Husband: “Hon, there’s fish. I think we’re going to be a few more days out here.”

Wife: “Well…I’m having sex on friday. If you want to be there for it. Your call.”

thank you, Capt. JJ!

    i should know never to ever write something like i did . . . because the build up is so great that eventual release (here i go again!!:) will be . . . underwhelming. however . . . let’s at it: i wondered whether radiotelephony sex was a chronological precursor to just plain phone sex, and then whether semaphoresex had ever . . . been attempted . . . signal lamp sex . . . like fireflies. smoke signal sex. . . . ok, i said it.

    I’ve got to think fireflies have a good time. They always fly around in a daze. The afterglow…

    Back in the day on subs when we went out for months at a time, wives got to send “familygrams” — 20 word messages (no replies, radio silence…) — about once every three weeks. They were censored: no obscenity, no innuendo, no smut (and that’s the only thing what we really wanted!)….

    Every sub copied every message, so nothing was private.

    One I remember was: “Can’t wait for you to get home. There’s something I want to get straight between us.”
