I hope you've reached the right place, and I hope that you're over eighteen. This website is for adults only. No, I don't sell adult toys or videos or anything like that, this isn't a porn site. But it is the site of an erotic romance writer.


If you're looking for a steamy read, long, short or in between, where the characters are all over each other, get down and dirty, than I can guarantee that you will find something here. I'm going to level with you, my erotic romances are explicit and graphic in nature, but they all have happily forever or happily for now endings.


Enter at your own risk!

Wednesday Writings

Ever laughed at yourself after doing something totally stupid? I received some coupons in the mail yesterday and decided to go to Arbys and get myself a sandwich for dinner. The coupon I wanted to use said two sandwiches for the price of five dollars. I'm thinking to myself, I'll bring one in to work for lunch the next day. How often can you eat dinner and lunch for five dollars?

So I pull up to the drive thru, explain that I have a coupon, and order the 2 for $5 special. There's nothing, just silence. So I say "hello?"

"Ah, you have a coupon?"

"Yes."

"What does it say?"

Is he kidding? "It says for $5 I can order two chicken sandwiches." More silence. "Hello?"

A new voice comes on, this one a woman. "What kind of coupon, ma'am?"

"It says for $5 I can order two chicken sandwiches." I'm starting to get annoyed. I look at the coupon. "I have a choice of chicken, chicken and bacon or chicken cordon bleu."

"Cordon bleu? We don't have cordon bleu." Silence. "Can you please bring it up to the window so we can see it?"

God, they're idiots! "Okay." As I pull forward I think to myself, the last time I came here I asked for horsey sauce for my sandwich and was told they didn't carry it. An Arbys without horsey sauce?

I made up my mind not to come back as I'm forced to stop behind a truck. After about five minutes he finally drives away. Then it's my turn. I roll my window down and hand the woman the coupon. If she tells me they're not going to honor the coupon after I drove two miles out of my way for the stupid sandwiches I'm going to send a message to the email addy on the coupon and complain.

The woman glances at the coupon. She was really very nice, had a nice smile on her face and everything. Then she glances at me and says, "ma'am, this coupon is for Arbys."

Now I'm the silent one. I glance around but there's nothing to indicate that I'm not at Arbys. So I'm forced to ask, "well, where am I?"

"Hardees."

Oh,that sounds like something I would do. If they were nice they would have honored it anyway.:-)

I love this and I can sure relate. One day I went to the bank to withdraw some money. I pulled up to the drive in window and they gave me the slip to fill out. I thought, briefly, that they had changed forms, but went on and filled it out. The lady says, do you have an account here, and I said yes, Then, a man came to the window and wanted my SSN. I gave it to him and he went to check and came back and said, I can't fine your account. Are you sure you have one at FCNB, I said, OH NO, I am at the wrong bank!!! Turns out I turned the wrong way and my bank was over on the other corner! I was so embarrassed!!!!

Haha! I'm so glad it's not just me doing these wacky things. I had my daughter drop me at my local grocery store to run in for something. I got my things and went out the exit door and climbed into the red car. I never looked over , just kept complaining about the poor service. I put my package on the floor and hooked my seat belt and then . . .I heard a male voice say in a droll voice, "Lady, I don't think you're in the right car" I started laughing so hard I couldn't get out of his car. And that's my life most of the time.

Mmm, ARBEYSm chicken cordon bleu!...

LOL, Debbie, been there, done that.

Love the 'new' you pic onRWDF btw. Didn't have a chance to tell you sooner, but I always like to 'see' those I'm seeing in cyber-ville.

Connie Northrop said...

LOL I hate days like that. I have two doctor's office on the same street. I tried to sign and at one and they couldn't find an appointment for the day for me. I opened my calendar to show them and then proceeded to appologize for having a major brain cramp. Then I drove two more miles to the correct doctor of the day. LOL

She said...

Things happen like that to me. I call one person thinking I've called another. I just laugh at myself and go on. It makes life interesting.

Oh my gosh, I can't stop chuckling over this one. Everyone in the world has pulled some kind of crazy stunt, so don't feel bad, Debbie.

Cheri2628 said...

That is so funny! I enjoyed your story and the others here in the replies. Of course, I never do anything like that! ;-0 LOL

Ruby (Mouth) said...

Don't worry. I have sooo done that and I have written a check to Walmart when I was in Kmart. LOL!!!

Nancy Bristow said...

Loved it Debbie. Was totally there with you...especially the all indiginant part:) Like it was said, had they been really nice, they would have honored the coupon and gained a whole lot more than five bucks in good will.

My issue is losing whole days.
Seriously...I did it twice within months and the consequences were painful in terms of wasted energy. Like how about showing up with a fully loaded car to pick up my sister from the airport before leaving directly on our trip to see my other sister. How about the $12 I pissed away for parking. How about the half a day of wasted time -- leaving early to get there -- hanging for two hours because she didn't show up at the arrival gate (never mind how many times I got up in the face of the information booth man) -- and then getting lost on the way home? And why?...because I was at the damn airport a day early!! Just kill me now.

Talk about. My excuse is retirement...the old working/sleeping/eating living routine went right out the window when I retired. Lots of times I have to look at my cell phone or computer to get a grip on the date and obviously there are times when it just blows by me. Nancy:)

P.S. We had talked/emailed about this trip for several months prior and some how I got the incorrect departure date in my head and it stuck.

P.P.S. Although both of my sisters had a small amount of sympathy for my discomfort, they mainly howled with laughter. It's what sisters do:))

I've had brain drain issues too. I never thought to be grateful I had cancer for any reason but "chemo fog" excuses a lot of dumb mistakes (lol).

Daun Ann said...

OMG! I am so sorry for that, but thanks for the laugh, I needed it.

Hope you all have a better holiday weekend.

Pat Cochran said...

WOW! I'm not the only one who does
absolutely wild things! When it happens, I want to just shrivel up
and be blown away where no one knows
who I am! Why do these crazy incidents always happen when there
are several persons nearby who are
acquaintances?

I've done that myself a time or three.

Debbie Wallace said...

I thought the same thing breiab! You would have tought they'd felt sorry for me:)

Debbie Wallace said...

Too funny Mary Ann!

Debbie Wallace said...

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who does stuff like this, Linda:)

Debbie Wallace said...

Yep, Ceila. Gotta keep things interesting:)

Debbie Wallace said...

Thanks for making me laugh out loud, Micki!

Debbie Wallace said...

Thanks Lainey, about the picture. Thought it was about time to show my real self.

And, I knew I spelled cordon bleu wrong but darn that spell check!

Debbie Wallace said...

LOL, good one Connie!

Debbie Wallace said...

Hey She, I do that too once in a while. I'll be halfway through the conversation before I realize I've called the wrong person. I don't know if they're just being polite or amused by hanging on.

Debbie Wallace said...

So true, Sandy. And it's nice to laugh at ourselves once in a while. Releases a lot of stress!

Debbie Wallace said...

Humm...me things Cheri is telling a little fib:) Is your nose longer?

Debbie Wallace said...

Yeah Ruby, done things like that myself.

Debbie Wallace said...

LOL, all is good Nancy! You gave your sisters something to laugh about and a memory that will pop up between ya'll forever. Remember the time when...

You went through a lot of crap but now you can enjoy your time with them:)

Debbie Wallace said...

I think those chemo treatments are meant to cure you, or kill you. It's good that you can joke about the side affects, Arkiern. I hope that's way behind you now:)

Debbie Wallace said...

Hi Daun Ann, we all need a good laugh these days! You have a good holiday, too.

Debbie Wallace said...

Good question, Pat. I was lucky this time and was alone. Maybe God does things like this to remind us that we're all human and have faults.

Debbie Wallace said...

A time or three? LOL...I hear ya!
