    Griselda had a mischievous twinkle in her glass eye. Bob pretended it was a twinkle, though he knew it was really just the glint of the naked, 40-watt bulb in the smelly hallway. He already regretted the promise he’d made to his old man as he passed through the international gate:

    “I will not be a 40 year-old virgin, Pa! This time, I will get laid!”

    Griselda had been lurking in the shadows, scouting out easy marks, when Bob practically fell into her skanky lap. She smoothed out her torn skirt, snuck up behind him and started humming Auld Lang Syne, while gently tugging at the ring in his ear with crusty lips.

    Startled by the explosion of sensations assaulting his nostrils, earlobes and loins, Bob sprang five feet in the air. When he landed, he sprawled on the ground, atop the nasty whore. Bubbly droplets of blood dripped from his ripped ear.

    “What the hell!” Bob struggled to his feet.

    “Too late,” grinned Griselda. “You must follow me.”

    Typically, the loins overruled the nostrils and the brain. Bob looked Griselda square in her glass eye and croaked, “Let’s go.”

    Five minutes later, in the dingy housing complex, Bob bid adieu to virginity, self-respect and his last twenty dollars.
