Phone Sex

Uploaded: Sep 26, 2014
Okay, it's not exactly sex, partly because it's so frequent. Daily, in fact. But it is definitely sexy, my call from this woman who wants me to consider getting down on the floor, presumably with her.

She phones about midday. We never talk, but her recorded voice always stirs me. She is full of evocative language about being on the floor and how it would be good to have an Alert. The latter being a product, some sort of pager. She goes on to explain that I am destined to fall on the ground. And I really get it, this falling on the ground, vis-à-vis gravity. Also, the part about my hips. There is a danger of breaking them, or one of them. Whose hip, hers or mine, is unclear. But she is thinking about this, the two of us being on the floor and getting up to something that involves not only hips, but hip breakage. There is nothing sexier than an active imagination.

Anyway, she keeps calling. Thing about her Alert, is that I may be eligible for a free one. No charge. We are on the floor. Something is happening with our hips. And there's no charge. Except that I do get a charge from this woman and her persistent imagery. I have been selected, that is the other thing. I may be eligible. Okay, I'm married, but still eligible. See what I mean? It's really cool.

I sort of wonder if it's my personal magnetism that has drawn this woman and her phone calls. After all, I'm 67 years old. Good thing I'm still Alert.

Steroid hormones, such as various forms of testosterone, will also be very popular. This can quickly reduce swelling and inflammation. Actually, some physicians utilize epidural steroid injections to decrease your pain... and do the booking for the hotels and arranged the items, overall great experience at Web Link
