More than what I bargained for! Swiss women, ooh la la!

Friday 13th, some say a day of bad luck. Considering my share of crap luck in the last 12 months, I thought I would think positive (again!). I went to the bakery in the village to grab a nice croissant and, as my bus was coming, I ran across the road. The driver saw me, smiled at me, kept the doors shut and drove off...bastard! 20 minutes to wait for the next one and I will be late for work.


Still, I think to myself, it could be worse, I could be waiting in the rain and instead it's lovely and sunny, and I have a croissant still warm from the baker's oven.


Suddenly, a 50 something woman, dressed very elegantly in a 1950s burlesque fashion, comes trotting towards me and says that she saw what happened and she is so disgusted by the driver's attitude that she wants to give me a lift to wherever I work.
After a polite refusal, no that's so kind of you but I can wait till the next one, I accept the invitation because frankly, it really suits me and she is truly beaming and friendly.


We chat in the car about this and that and I say to her how touched I am by her kind gesture, that not many people would do this nowadays...bla...bla...bla...
Suddenly, she puts her hand on my knee and while stroking my leg says that she doesn't mind the slightest, that she'd drive me to work any day...and back!!!


I am SO glad I wasn't wearing my kilt because I was a little "flustered", to say the least!


The other way round would have been really creepy but I really did not mind...my steps were 10 times lighter when I got to work!

If I started to stroke your leg, yes, that I can understand! Me too!

Don't know, but this episode seems from a French comedy from the '70s...one with Pierre Richard, somewhere in that zone. Funny!

You're still in the game, McTavge....

To be honest, the only time I am treated like a "hottie" is at yodel concerts...problem is my fan base is 80+ years old! For once I get someone a fraction over my own age paying me a (albeit a bit physical) compliment, I'm going to enjoy every bit of it...I am single so not betraying anyone else's feelings!

It is all about the attitude (and muscles).

Are you wearing leder hosen for yodelling conventions, by any chance? Just start running and put on a pair of nice jeans.

Oh, I'll take any tip, yes please, it's been a long time since my "flirting days"! Now, do I sound too desperate?
Oyez oyez gentes dames,
Si vous voyez un gentilhomme écossais en kilt qui court dans la rue en yodellant, croissants en main, arrêtez-vous.. c'est le prince charmant que vous attendez !!

fixed that for you

Lederhosen are not part of the Swiss national costume!... But I do have a pair, for jodelrock festivals!
