We live in a cul-de-sac. A nice suburban neighborhood, with an elementary school just down the street, and dogs in the backyard. Very Americana.
The couple that lives across the cul-de-sac from us is an interracial couple. He's white, she's African-American. He's kind of stand-offish (we've lived here 3 years, and he's never introduced himself), and she's super social and nice. One day, when The Husband came home from work, I stepped out to greet him, and we saw them. She had a fierce 'fro (she usually wears her hair in a smooth, tight ponytail), a yellow sleeveless mini dress, yellow go go boots, and was laying on top of her car. He was taking pictures. I'm assuming their teenage sons were not home.
It kind of blew my mind. She's always so prim and proper, with her hair, makeup and clothes in place. You could probably place her in a Polo ad. The Austin Powers getup was pretty unexpected to say the least.
I know we've heard never judge a book by it's cover, but how many people are freaky in secret and we just don't know? Do you think June Cleaver took off her pearl necklace for another type of pearl necklace? Did Rob and Laura from the Dick Van Dyke show like to role play? Laura was a rebel, wearing pants and all. Were Mr. and Mrs. Brady swingers and go to key parties in the 70's? And since Dr. Huxtable was an Ob-gyn and got sick of looking at poon all day long, did he and Clair enjoy some back door entry? Did I just ruin some of your favorite childhood shows?
After all, I'm sure people would be shocked to find out that I blog about sex. The girl who had a big traditional Catholic wedding writes about sex? Oh my.
