Wednesday Story Day – AKA Hump Day

College drinks


Wednesday Story Day again. Last week we found out old mom is pretty good at moving money around the world. We also found out mom has a pretty good grasp on how to set up the explosives and extort ransom money. Let’s rush back and see what else she knows about mayhem.

“Here’s your drink Mrs. Wolfe.”

“Thank you, Ben. I didn’t know you knew how to make a martini.”

“Not much to it. A little gin and a whisper of vermouth.”

“Mmmm. You do have a touch.”

“Gosh. Thank you, Mrs. Wolfe.”

“You can call me Trudy Ben.”

“I’m not sure I would be comfortable doing that. Shouldn’t we get back to Alexis and your husband.”

“Oh, What’s the matter, Ben. You get nervous around real women?”

“Um. I’m really getting uncomfortable Mrs. Wolfe.”

“Call me Trudy you little shit. You need to learn to follow instructions. I don’t really care how comfortable you are. I’m running this show and we will do what I say. Now pour yourself a martini and come sit by me.”

“But Alexis─”

“But Alexis nothing. She’s a little girl. I like you and can show you things Alexis could never even imagine let alone share. Get that drink Ben. I’m not going to ask again.”

“Yes, Ma’am.”

“Yes, what?”

“Yes, Trudy.”

“Good boy. You won’t be sorry. Bring me another as well.”


  1. Oh no! Please tell me she’s not going to show Ben her varicose veins.

    1. Boy. Thant is a vision hard to remove. Ha ha ha.

  2. Well Koo-ca choo Mrs Wolfe, heaven holds a place for those who pray. And I think Ben needs to pray.

    1. Hey Joe where did you go?

  3. Hope Ben wore running shoes because I think he should retreat . . . quickly.

    1. Good advice. I think Ben will mix a drink and go sit down.

      1. I smell doom on him.

  4. Does this family own a dog John? I’m looking for someone to like and I’m fast running out of options. However, if this story line continues, Alexis and dad are going to look good by comparison. Ben needs to put this family in his rear view mirror as fast as possible.

    1. Ha ha ha. Thanks Dan. No I love dogs too much to put them in this kind of danger. A pet rat maybe?

  5. Ooo, he better get out of there. Or put strange things in her drink.

    1. That is a great idea.

  6. Poor Ben. He bit off more than he can chew, didn’t he? Here’s hoping Alexis or her dad (or perhaps both!) find themselves in the kitchen soon so they can rescue him. I imagine being in a building that’s about to explode might be preferable to whatever designs Trudy has on him!

    1. It is almost six of one and a half dozen of the other. Thanks Debbie

  7. I’ve got Simon and Garfunkel in my head now…
    Oh that photo, John…hilarious!

    1. “You’er trying to seduce me Mrs Robinson. Aren’t you?”

  8. She just gets worse and worse.

    1. or worser and worser. Thanks. πŸ™‚

  9. So its come to this now? What else can Mrs. Wolfe come up with. Poor Ben. πŸ˜€ o_O

    1. She is a devil alright.

      1. I feel her. Any possibility she will be ‘rubbed out’ as they used to say in the old detective movies? Okay. Okay. I’m not forcing your hand, but, sheesh, she’s something else.Still an most interesting character. πŸ˜€

      2. We can think of something.

      3. Ha ha. I’m sure YOU w.i.l.l. πŸ˜€

  10. I find myself crushing on Mrs Wolfe and I’m not ashamed to say it. Actually, I’m not ashamed to say anything. And a ‘whisper’ of vermouth? My man, you are smooth as silk.

    1. Mrs. Wolfe is a cougar and one who is very forceful. (oh my) You should crush on her. On the vermouth I have given up . I just order Tanqueray on the rocks

  11. You make Hump Day phenomenal, John!
    Well done.

    1. Good deal. Thanks Hook.
