One Sweet Sorority


Her eyes beckoned me with that come-hither look.

I confidently stood (at least I was trying to exude assertiveness). Untucking my polo from my stone-washed khakis (I watch the commercials; all the cool guys wear their shirttails on the outside) I boldly stepped away from the row of chairs that sadly lined the dance floor’s wall.

Just my luck. This radiant goddess was joined with three other voluptuous knock-outs.

She reached to take my hand.

“I’m Candy Cane.” She gracefully gestured around. “Kit Katrine, Almond Joylensky, and Twix Barac.  

“Sweet,” I responded.

I could feel my blood sugar rising.
