The Jealous Type

Before you take your afternoon nap, Soval, let’s try another joke. A wimpled nun, a cowboy are in a bar on a rainy night in Venice, having bruschetta pizza with kippers. The barkeep has a handlebar mustache and red and white polka-dotted bow tie. She has a Silver Bullet, and he drinks single-malt scotch. It’s a polyamorous romance; Cowboy says he’ll take her to paradise with his forked tongue.”

Is there a point to this story?”

It’s a joke. Wait for the punch line. She blushes. She doesn’t need contraception – God is her other paramour. And he’s the jealous type.”

Will Soval get the punch line?

Will Cowboy get his wimpled nun?

Will God get even?

Any guesses?

I am myself. I own my life, and live with three other people who own theirs. My intention is to do only those things that bring me joy, and to give myself wholly to those things I do. Writing has been my passion throughout my life, and this will become the home for my writing life...because it brings me great joy!
