Where Are They Now

Thanks for giving me something to talk about.  And I guess the easiest thing is to start where I left off.

So what happened to everybody?  Well, I'm not even going to bother trying to remember the fake names of the girls who used to work here.  One of the girls started doing full service outside The Business.  Then before I knew it, she was doing it at work.  I had to let her go and last I heard she got a job at a full service parlor outside Atlantic City.  The other girl started dating a customer.  Eventually she quit and moved in with him and I think she's going back to school for something.

Since then I've gone through 3 other girls.  One was a pretty little girl from Peru of all places.  She lasted about 2 months.  Knew exactly what she was getting herself into, but still acted like each second at work was slowly shredding her immortal soul and condemning her to an eternity of unrelentless torment and pain.  She was totally bumming me out so I fired her.

The next was a married woman who's husband wasn't just OK with her working in a massage parlor, but actually suggested she try it.  I was never sure what to think about that situation.  She lasted through the summer and even had a bunch of her own Regulars by the time she quit.  

Then there was the College Girl.  I'll never forget her.  Dropped out of school one day last spring and started working for us the next day.  She was totally insane.  Trying to get her to keep a schedule was like herding cats.  This girl had no sense of responsibility.  Would show up when she felt like it, then disappear in the middle of her shift to go "have a cigarette" with a customer.  I would have fired her a long time ago, but she was never around long enough for me to have a decent conversation with her.

But she did bring in customers!  And her leftovers were just more business for the rest of us.  In the end, she just stopped showing up.  This was around September/October.  I have no idea what happened to her, but I hope she's OK.  Never even picked up her last paycheck.  

And through it all, there was Maude.  My Rock.  My Foundation.  The Backbone of The Business.  Some things don't change and she's still keeping this place up and running.

But more about her and the new girls later.

Baby it's cold outside

Fucking coldest night in history and we still had customers.  Go home and hide under a blanket for Gawd's sake!   That's what I'm doing.  At work we had electric heaters in each room and out front because even with the thermostat cranked up, it wasn't keeping us warm.  Just another work hazard when your job description includes the word "topless."

Well, it's been a year since I bothered to sit down and document my miserable life.  But it's only been a month since Derek got married.  What have I been up to all this time?  Well, in a nutshell I've been more or less keeping "The Business" from going out of business.  I've hired and fired I don't know how many girls.  And I've been hooking up only with guys who won't call me the next morning. 

In other words, things are back to normal.  I think I waited so long to write anything here because I had nothing to say.  I've been on autopilot for so long I forgot that there's more to life than just handjobs.  Shit, my life was one giant handjob.

Up. Down.  Repeat.

It's been so long I don't even know where to begin.  So I'll leave it up to you guys to try to get me back in the game.  Go ahead - ask whatever you want.  Make me laugh. Cheer me up.  Try to coax me out of my shell.
