I came home from work to find my living room filled with strange women. I paused, unseen, in the kitchen and listened to what was going on. There was a lot of giggling.
After a few minutes, I heard Jessica's voice. She was saying something about quality and fit and driving a man wild. Then she held up a piece of lingerie. She passed it around for the crowd to see.
The next thing she showed them was a bottle of lotion. She talked about quality for the price and how it was edible. It, too, she passed around the room.
Then she held up a sex toy and started to demonstrate it.
I had had enough. I walked into the living room as if I was just arriving home and said, "What in the hell is going on here?"
The women turned and looked at me. I didn't recognize any of them. Who were these people?
Jessica excused herself and went with me into the kitchen.
"Well, you told me to get a job. That's what I did."
"You have got to be kidding me. You have sex toys in my house!"
"Yeah. I'm a sales consultant for Lovey Dubbie Products. They sell lingerie and all that other stuff. I get a commission off everything I sell."
"When I said get a job, I meant a real job. One with a steady paycheck and benefits. Not one where you have to throw sex parties."
"That's not technically a sex party, Fran."
I held both my hands up. "It doesn't matter. Finish up and get them out of here. You should be ashamed of taking advantage of these people."
Jessica went back to her party. I got my keys and went out for a drink.
