In The Shadow Of The Moon

Two professional women: both married with kids and both juggling clients, reports, potty training, packed lunches, chores, dogs, cats, errands, husbands and …”what was that you said? SEX?”
That three-letter word that once was so frequent, so liberating, so yummy has been sidelined in a sea of life, work and snot.
It is time.
Time to put sex back on a pedestal by injecting some extra spice into our relationships.

In The Shadow Of The Moon

I think I have a new signature move: hand jobs on highways. With two missions already under my belt where the car console turned into a cockpit (quite literally), I felt I had this one down. My career advisor at school would have been so proud.  Just imagine the following exchange:

“Duchess, what would you like to be when you grow up?”

“Handy with my hand Ma’am on highways.”

“Oh yes, what a grand idea. You will make someone very happy with a skill like that.  Practice makes perfect Duchess, and if at first you don’t succeed …well just give it another go.”

Thank you Dear Mrs. Career Advisor, that’s just what I did.

Fortuitous timing that Miss. Lee set the Get Handy mission on a week the Duke, Boy Duke and I were heading out of town on another six hour drive.  There really was no excuse for an excuse.   Except for …. the Boy Duke.  On the outbound journey, when he should have been napping, he wasn’t.  When he should have become absorbed in the TV show we put on for him on the ipad, he didn’t.  When we should have been able to carve out some quiet time with each other across the car console, well we couldn’t.  He protested, squirmed, cried, screamed – the whole gamut of emotions when a three-year-old is stuck in a car for 6.5 hours, naps for just 30 minutes and  for the rest of the time all he wants to do is to get out.  It makes for a very un-relaxing and un-sexual drive. Opportunity: zero.

Fast forward two days to the return journey.  The whole experience is night and day in every which way.  Traveling at night means the Boy Duke sleeps.  Ah yes, hurdle # 1 is now in the rear view mirror, out for the count/zonked.  Hurdle # 2:  getting the cockpit revved up in the light of day – awkward when trucks / gas guzzling SUVs roll past and can see straight into the car and what you are doing.  Aha, not if you travel at night! Ah yes, in this instance the night sky is your friend.  The darkness and shadows mean no possible peeping Toms, especially on large stretches of country highway.  There really couldn’t be a more ideal potion if getting handy on the highway tickles your fancy.  The weary night time clock speeds by much quicker if you both are enjoying the task at hand AND to top it all off you both finish the journey happy and just a little bit smug.  Not tired and on the brink of sleeping in separate beds because the journey has been arduous and you end up hating each other.  Mission accomplished. Hurray.

Yep Mrs. Career Advisor you were right.  Practice, practice, practice.
