That Miss Veronica

You met Veronica through Craigslist. Maybe you were lonely one night and decided to check out the casual encounters personals.  Her ad read,

     "Lonely in Venice. Cute, fun-loving Latina seeks handsome, intelligent man for dinner, drinks and conversation. Let’s see where it goes from there. Must be discreet and D/D free. Your pic gets you mine."

     You read her ad, were intrigued, then sent her a note. You exchanged e-mails and met for drinks a few days later. One drink led to four and within a few hours you found yourselves in a hotel room. Veronica lacks inhibitions, so the evening was wild and memorable.

     While Veronica may not be what you are looking for in a girlfriend - you suspect she is in a relationship - she is fun and very easy to talk to. Veronica likes to have a good time and as long as you don’t judge her for her lust for life, she is a good friend. You’ve remained close and get together once in a while. As a perk, she is a supervisor at the DMV, which has proved to be just as beneficial as the sex.

     Veronica has no problem hunting down names and addresses for you, but don’t ask for favors too often. It also doesn’t hurt if you take her out for sushi now and again!

    1. I agree, Miss Veronica. Doug, you need to stay away.

    2. Well, if the man in gold tights demands that I stay away, then I guess I had better do so. I'd hate for him to point one of his scary flashlights at me.
