Requiem For A Stripper #314

by

I went through the garage and found the door that led into the house. I could hear murmurs and commotion coming from a room somewhere in front of me.

I heard movement in a room next to me. I eased the door open. Some guy in a robe and a domino mask was urinating in the toilet. I stepped back into the garage, grabbed a wrench and came back in, smacking the guy in the back of the head. He wobbled and fell over, leaving a streak of piss on the wall.

He still had his business in his hand...

    I was trying to find out what they called those little black masks with the eyeholes like Robin, The Boy Wonder wore. Apparently they're called domino masks. So I learned something new, which isn't unusual when I'm writing these stories.

    And I’ve learned something new too, teacher!

    Btw... I now have a new to me expression I shall exploit mercilessly.... ‘business in hand!’ (I already use ‘in a couple of shakes... but not three... ‘cos that’s a w**k!’)

    Ha! I wondered when I wrote that if that could actually happen, for the guy to fall and still be holding his "business." But I figured anything is possible.

    Someone (I don’t remember who) sang “just hold on, to what you’ve got.” Maybe it would be a natural instinct?

    Maybe. I think that was Bon Jovi back in the 80s that said that (Livin' On A Prayer).
