The cavernojus room’s stucco walls were painted an off kilter white. The not quite white gave the space an uneasy atmosphere. The place was immaculate with absolutely no liyyrt on the black. white and scarlet linoleum floor. The combination of the walls and floor gave the site a rather sterile atmosphere. The building where the room was was situated between the local city hall and the municipal police station. Nearby was the main chain book store. The interior of the room with its rows of sturdy metal and leather seat chairs was one of firm orderliness. As if it held power over whoever was in it.
The setting came across to most patrons there as being one of anticipation. The main door swung open to let in more guests of the lecturer Lady Lynda Mae Hoffenfetter Toze. Dan D. Walker and his lady friend sat near the front. Dan D. wore a periwinkle blue paisley silk shirt underneath a silver hued fancy vest . His leather belt bucket was oversized in gold leaf wth a silhoette of Texas. His blue jeans went well with his slate grey wool tuxedo jacket. On his head he proudly wore a genuine Stetson hat. His boots were complete with real spurs and were of real rattlesnake skin. Walker wanted to make certain he could hear his mentor’s every word so he could show Desiree Lee exactl . how wonderful Lady Lynda was.
Desiree Lee Meriweather’s dress was mid way between her knees and ankles. It’s material was that of cotton and lace. There was a print of pink and powder blue little flowers. Her full length sleeves ended in frilly Belgian lace. Her neck line was trimmed the same way . It consisted of six buttons so she could be as prim or daring as she chose. Her choice was to be sexy but still be a lady.
It was quite stuffy there but the couple didn’t mind a bit. They were chomping at the bit to hear the etiquette expert begin her talk. Walker put his manly arm around his lady friend’s slender sloping shoulders. The woman took a confident breath and swung her slender arm over his right shoulder too.
The window shades were drawn to keep out the glaring sun outside. This gave the room quite a sense of disquietude. Conversely the patrons were thankful the brilliant light could not be shown its full strength
Desiree Lee Meriweather and the Texan sat arm and arm united . Walker wore his fancy black tux with white Texan style threads and a black bolero tie. His boots were genuine snakeskin. Desiree’s dress was cotton gingham with a print consisting of fluer de lises. They sat in the third row of twenty rows. They wanted to be certain they heard every single word of the lecturer but still give the woman space. The couple and others were glad the air conditioning was finally switched on. And that the sound was low enough not to drown out the guest speaker’s words. A young man dressed in business casual told the crowd the talk would begin at most in five minutes.
Dan “I wonder what her talk is on? You sure seem impressed with this lady. I can’t wait for the AC to kick in Sure is hot in here. Feels like hell in here.
Wish we could guzzle down some cold Lone Star beer right now.
‘Big ones? Big refreshing mugs. Two big ones. The way they were positioned right in front of him , the mugs reminded Dan D. of his lady friend’s firm shapely jugs.
The woman with Dan D. moved her lips as if she guzzling a refreshing mug of beer. Dan D. Walker laughed at her imitation of drinking a mug of beer . He gave her a Texas style bear hug. Looked at her with fondness and said lets head for the hills when the talk is over. I can hardly wait for Lady Lynda to get out on that dern stage.
“Perfect timing Dan. There she is now entering the stage. Right then and there Lady Lynda primly entered the stage. She was of medium height and stocky build. Her brocaded rose printed satin suit hid pretty well her stocky build. Her pumps clickity clacked noticeably on the polished oak wood floor.
‘”Good evening ladies and gentlemen My talk is on the issue of antinomy. That is the presence of contradicting ideas from two equally knowledgeable experts. Its not to be confused with antimony. Antimony is a toxic metal. ….
“You sayin’ your anti money What do you want Lady. To go back to the barter system? Hell yeah I work hard for my money. As Barrett Strong sang “They say the best things in life are free but you can give them to the birds and bees. I want money. That’s what I want. Moneyyyyy That’s what I want.
Lady Lady tried her utmost to get back her composure.
“Moving on lets continue. I said antinomy not that other word” she told the crowd fearful if she mentioned antimony she’d get the same or similar reaction.
Touched by his mentor’s plight Dan D. Walker shed a tiny tear down his cheek in sympathy of his mentor. How could the crowd be so ignorant? His face turned red with rage . He wanted so much to show his lady friend how impressive Lady Lynda was.
The server came over and asked ‘Do you want your beer on the rocks.?’
‘I don’t know,’ Dan D. lady friend replied. Its hard for me to concentrate now. Those ignoramuses are making a mockery of that woman .
‘It’s all right.’ U;n sure she can handle it the pert server responded trying to be reassuring.
“I’ve seen dang thing but this sure takes the cake. Especially when all Lady Lynda is doing is trying to help people better themselves. I got to do something about this.
‘Yes Dan This experience is leaving a sour taste in my mouth”
‘Cut it out you hooligans, you scoundrels. You are the most uncouth folks I ever did see.”
‘Mind your own beeswax ’ one goth young woman said. . ‘I was being amused. I was having a fine time.’
‘Gosh dern you young lady this is my business.. You young folks don’t appreciate this kind, thoughtful woman trying her best to school ya. ”
The very next moment her husky six feet one boyfriend came marching over. Dan D. Walker got out his chair and rose to his full manly six feet four height. He gazed directly at the lady’s man The young man instantly knew when he was licked.
‘All right. I was trying to protect my woman I know I’m no match for her. Wasn’t too bright of was it.”
“That was the brightest thing you ever said” replied Walker”
“Now lets listen to Lady Lynda’s talk in peace You might learn to be a better man and your lady friend a better, more considerate woman. ”
Lady Lynda smiled with gratitude and continued edifying the audience who were grateful for her edification.
