“Who wants Jell-o?” someone announces to the room at large.
“Mmmm,” considers one girl…. then she continues quite casually, though not publicly, “I’ll take some Jell-o, if I get to eat it off of his rock-hard abs… with my mouth…”
“Fhooah!” guffaws breathily her friend, who can clearly hear her every word.
“Mmm,” she hums, savoring the idea…, “No hands, of course…,” and she smiles broadly, noticing that her friend has noticed all that she has been somewhat passively saying.
“Hands free life!” she quietly declares, and she shimmies her jazz hands with this reference to Japanese culture and their comical English.
“Not so subtle, are we now?” the friend says.
“Hey…, I’m being honest and open here… and isn’t that the best way to go about life?”
“Sure, but would you ever say that to him?” counters the friend.
She shrugs. After a brief consideration, she says genuinely, “The conversation would have to present itself naturally, like it did just now…. Get him to offer me some Jell-o, and we’ll see if I dare say it to him then.”
There is a pause while the two look at each other, considering not only the fact that she genuinely thought about it, but also the scenario itself…
Suddenly, the two girlfriends break into fitful giggles, chests and bellies pumping wildly with silent laughter, eyes watering.
Neither considers for now the likelihood of the situation presenting itself to them, but both enjoy thoroughly the absurdity of the imagined version they are presently sharing in their minds.
What on Earth would he say if she said that to him?
And what on Earth would happen if he knew she meant it?
God only knows…
