Hi again,

Quote:
<laughter> The kitchen tables I grew up with were not flimsy, they were stout and usually old; more than resiliant enough to withstand shenanigans of the x-rated kinda. Mind you, not even in the Skulls did the table take the full brunt of things ... just kept people from falling on the floor.  Grin


Ahh-okayyyy - slightly gymnastic vanilla sex on a kitchen table...

Definitely nicely written, but somehow I still fail to get the point (of the amount of brouhaha over it) *scratching my head*

I mean, that's a movie staple, isn't it (Jack Nicholson anyone?)? Or is it the amount thereof and the detail what so gets Louise? I'm afraid I still don't really get "it".

Anyway, very nicely written story, that one, with a really cute twist to the plot at the end.  Grin

Hi Louise,

  Cheesy

And I don't even have one currently.

Inspite of kitchen tables apparently being a hot commodity in the anglosaxon culture to engage in certain activities on, I've always failed to grasp their appeal.

This must be a cultural thing then. I prefer, err, supporting items for such activities to be comfy, soft and somewhat luxurious (for myself) and a bit more restrictive (if not for myself).

Hence my phantasies don't tend to run away with me in a kitchen. Way too damned uncomfortable.  Grin

Also, I just cottoned on to why that peanut butter thing completely failed me, after I got a tip from an American friend. Ah well, us continental Europeans gals....  :Smiley

Actually, I suspect I'm showing my colonial roots here. Once upon a time in the US, below a certain social status, there was no dining room therefore the family gathered at the kitchen table for meals. This was in the days of real kitchens in which there was much more room than the streamlined things one has today. (I dunno about Continental kitchens, although I do understand that the size of refrigerator we consider normal are not normal in Europe or most of the rest of the world.) Can you tell I'd like a much larger kitchen? And I don't even have all the kids at home any more <g>

Unfortunately, I don't see Straker as into the kinkier side of things. Just getting any was something of a shock to his system.  Cheesy As to it being a movie staple ... I must not be watching the same movies you are ... I'm not that fond of Jack Nicholson. Sorry.

Glad you enjoyed the ending. I thought a happy ending was a good thing.

As to Louise and the table, it was a slight refrain in the story about tables and getting in the way of things once Ed and Kelsy "woke up". We turned it into a running joke between us.  Wink We're a little juvenile at times <wink, wink, nudge, nudge, say no more> I guess we can stop now.

Or maybe we could sacrifice Jackson on a kitchen table ... <thoughtful look, many tentacled chittering thing giggling over my shoulder ... smack the muse>

Hi D.,

that's entirely right about fridges here in Europe. Tend to be tiny affairs compared, the serious refridgerating units are "down below" in the cellar, usually. Also, electricity is expensive, you tend to buy machines which will do the job without excesses.

I don't have a dining room either, the kitchen is a solid size for the farmhouse I live in - some 30 square meters, I'd say. we still don't eat in there, we do that in the living room.

Juvenile? Moi?

Never.

Just appreciate the finer things in life.

Oh. and my dining room table is beech,  and wider. 

  Wink

Variety is the spice of life. Shocked

Maybe he could inadvertantly sacrifice his coffee to the table god ... Euw, reminds me of the sentient table in the Iron Elves ... <shudder>

I'm not sure a sentient table would be much fun.  Now a sentient sofa, on the other hand . . .  Wink Shocked Shocked

Oh, trust me, this table was not fun. It sucked souls out of people. Very nasty.

Sentient couch, depends on if it likes you or not. Eaten by couch, not good. <shaking head>

I don't think I'd want my sofa (or table) to be able to talk. That could be embaressing... Embarrassed  Grin
