OMG can you imagine an Erotica month with 2 stories displayed on the main forum?? Yes please!

Aha haha!! I'm surprised we had this many votes overall! Thank you everyone. I voted for Alex, because his story was surprising and genuinely made me laugh...

Not sure winning this month was the highlight of my career, but I'll wear it like a badge, with pride!  ;D

I won't be seeking criticism for my story this month!  ::)

Congrats, both of you!

@Slaykomimi, your story was good but too predictable to get my vote.


@all: I'm sorry for the delay of the next theme, I have a sinusitis, my wife had food poisoning and broke her toe, it's over 30°C outside and nearly all families with similar aged kids were away over the (long) weekend.
Our batteries are really low now...

I think I'll manage a new theme tomorrow...

Wow. That's a high achievement Xiagan. Please don't drive, by the sounds of your luck this week you'll total it! Stay inside and safe and time to train the kids on the care of parents. Be ready for when you're olderly :p

Don't rush it. Let it just be known I'm dead jealous because here the summer is so inexistant I go to work in jumper and jacket and scarf every day and it's been pissing all week.  >:(
I'd give a lot for 10 of your 30°!!

Thanks, Nora! We don't have a car, so there's at least that.
I went to the doc yesterday because it didn't get better and I'm on sick leave until Wednesday next week.

The weather is fantastic for everybody without sinusitis but let me tell you, I'd gladly give you 10-15°C from what we have at the moment...

Wow.  :-[

Um. Thanks?

Never thought this is what I'd get praise for.   :P

Congrats. Got my vote. The whole concept was ridiculous, really, which made it absolutely hilarious  ;D

I couldn't get an idea to stick on Erotica - clearly I wasn't thinking absurdly enough.
