Midnight Snack

It was late when we finished rolling around in the sheets. I turned onto my back, breathing hard and sweaty. “That went well.”

He laughed. “It always does. Towel?”


After we cleaned up, he went to the doorway. “I’m hungry.”

“It’s nearly one. Let’s just go to sleep.”

“I need food. Can I bring you anything?”

I gave in and got up. “What have you got?”

We slapped together roast beef sandwiches at the kitchen table.

After taking the first bite, I asked, “Pickles?”

“Good idea. New jar in the side door.”

I found it right away and worked the lid. “Did they superglue this sucker on?”

He put down his sandwich and held out a hand. “Let me.”

I handed it over. He struggled to open it too. He grimaced, and his neck corded in effort. He bent over, really putting his back into it, and what I saw reminded me of something.

“Did you ever see that Seinfeld episode where Jerry dated a woman who was naked all the time?”


“She eats breakfast naked, plays scrabble naked, and when she swallows wrong, she coughs naked. Jerry said it was a real turnoff, seeing all those usually hidden muscles moving around. ‘Naked hair brushing, good. Naked crouching, bad.’”

He opened the silverware drawer, pulled out a butter knife, and whacked the lid a couple times. “I remember it now. She opened a jar of pickles, and he flipped out.” He smiled and twisted the top, which emitted a loud pop as the seal broke. “Trying to tell me something?”

I took the jar from him, put it on the counter, and yanked him against me. “I like watching your muscles move.” I rubbed against him. “Especially when they move against mine.”

“What about our snack?”

I led him back to the bedroom. “It’ll wait.”
