Male Parts

I embarrassed myself again.


There’s this guy who wants to buy a bright orange Volkswagon bus from us, but my parents have the title tied up in some very mysterious place that is very hard to get to so I have to keep putting off the guy who wants to buy the bright orange Volkswagon bus.


He emails every few weeks.


Our most recent email exchange left me chuckling in embarrassed horror and wondering why I would ever, ever call myself a writer.


See for yourself:






Just checkin in and seeing if there are any updates on that title since we last spoke. Let me know, and hope all is well!


Lover of Bright Orange Volkswagon Bus




Dear Lover of Bright Orange Volkswagon Bus,


The news is the male part of the owner couple has had some health issues. They won’t be doing anything except hospital tests for awhile. 😉


I admire your persistence. I so wish I could tell you something different!


Sincerely, Me




Dear You,


Hmmm… Im not too sure what the male part of the owner couple means, but just keep me posted please. This bus is my dream and this deal would be a deal come true.


Thanks for putting up with me.


Sincerely, Lover of Bright Orange Volkswagon Bus



Yet another instance where the dialogue in my head doesn’t come out to the rest of the world in an appropriate manner. As you know, because you have the whole story, my dad has been in the hospital this weekend. And he’s male. And the owners are a couple so he’s the male part of the ownership couple.


Yeah. I didn’t actually say that, but I figured he could read between the lines. Because he’s a mind reader or something.


I am an idiot.


Yet I’m very impressed by the level of commitment to the Bright Orange Volkswagon Bus.


Hope you keep your male parts in good working order. Good bye.

    I always keep my male parts in working order because…well, you know. Hubba hubba.

      And not only did I laugh about your own post today, you make me laugh with your comment!

    I got a really good chuckle out of that myself. I knew what you meant, but I could also see how it could be confusing. Keep writing!! I’m loving this!!

    You are hysterical!! I embarrass myself on a regular basis with similar lapses of vocabulary-in-context.

    On a side note, for some reason, I can’t log-in to WordPress from here. I logged-in fine to my own blog, but here it keeps saying my password is invalid. Any ideas?

      No idea. That’s very strange…. Does this mean PlainJaneLiving is up and running????
