Find A Penny, Pick It Up...


Auntie obviously is unable to find this in the archives, so I figure I'll post it for her today. It's not like I'm sitting on any good posts. Most of the readers here have already seen this. Most of you replied to it way back then. This was written as a reader challenge. I foolishly took readers requests for things to write about for a week. It was tough, but I got through it and relived a treasured memory. I still feel weird sharing it. Yeah, I can write about my quirks, but it's hard to write about my sex life. Well here you go:

Continuing with the readers request. Lelo wanted me to write about my coming of age.
Maybe it was the times, maybe it was me, but I was a late starter. That is if one considers 17 as late.

OK, it all started when I was working in a library for a summer job. It was only the librarian and me working side by side for the most part. She was from Paris and I wanted to get more experience speaking French so I would do better in my college French class that I was signed up for in the fall. We made a pact to only speak French to one another unless we had to speak with a visitor who came in to use the library.

Day in and day out we spent our time in conversation, getting to know one another, our likes and dislikes. By July there were discussions about relationships and soon it was obvious that there was some sexual tension between us.

It is now that I need to mention that as stated above I was 17 and I now need to admit that she was 34. I was overly pleased with the direction this was taking…

As August approached, I told her that I’d like to get away and go camping some weekend before school started. She had never been camping and sounded interested in it, so I coaxed her into joining me. I told her all about the camp fire and swimming in the river by moonlight. Of course I never mentioned the rattle snakes, copperheads, deer ticks, mosquitoes, digging latrines and the possible lightening storms.

Things were going rather well. I convinced her to join me for a swim in the river. It was dark and soon she got used to the idea that if she removed her clothing I would barely be able to see anything as the only light was that of a half moon filtering through the leaves of the trees. It was a lot of fun.

We returned to the tent draped in our towels. We were at this time becoming very relaxed and very familiar with one another. We became more familiar by the minute. One thing lead to another and soon it became very passionate.

Now, you must keep in mind that all this time, as well as all summer long, we only spoke French to one another. Absolutely no English at all was spoken until in the heat of passion when she said to me, in English, “I want your pennies, I want your pennies.” I thought what the fuck does she want with pennies? Is this some weird French sex trick thing or is she trying to be some sort of really inexpensive prostitute or something? I reached for my pants and went through my pockets for my change. I wasn’t going to argue. I was going in for the first time. If she wanted my pennies, she was going to get them. I told her that I only had a couple pennies and asked her why she wanted them.

Frustrated, she then told me what she wanted in French. I then realized that when spoken in English with a French accent what she desired sounded a lot like "pennies."

I must have missed this one. What a great story! I'm still smiling at the thought of you frantically searching for your pennies!
Ah, the innocence (and ignorance) of youth and the joy of older women!

Hee hee hee! That was great! I can see myself doing the exact same thing. The sad thing is, I'm still easily confused like that. Especially in the heat of the moment.

Hmm... dare I say it? Yup.

Good thing for Aunties beau there's nothing else in english that sounds like "bacon"!

Donna, the first of many.

Beth, It was a joy that I've experienced on several occasions, and it was a joy.

Auntie, How could I refuse you anything?

Loopy, it was the beginning of a career in dumbassery in which I'm still employed.
