Swinger




I was once a witness to the following conversation between a man and a woman.

The man: Liked dabbling in alternative lifestyles
The woman: Thought swinging was just a dance

W: So What are you doing this weekend?
M: Oh. I don't know. My wife and I may go to a bar this weekend.
W: Really? That sounds like a lot of fun. My husband and I never go out. I'd love to go to a bar some day.
M: Well... I'd invite you but it is one of those swinger bars.
W: Really? I LOVE swinging! I've been begging my husband to take me to one of those bars.
M: Oh. I did not know that. My wife and I love it.
W: Oh I love it too. My husband on the other hand.. well I'll try to convince him. He needs to have some fun. F.U.N! He needs some adventure!
M: Yeah... umm...
W: You know what? Let me know next time you go. If he doesn't come, I'll go alone. Can I come alone? Do they have extra guys who can swing?
M: I guess...
W: That's it then. I'll go alone and once he realizes how much fun I am having, he'll tag along.

Another Woman in the room: Hey M! You do realize that W is talking about something completely different.

M: Yeah I got the feeling...
W: What? What are you talking about? I love Swinging. I love all kinds of dance. I'd love to try the polka dance some day.

The other woman: See?
M: Cool. Well I gotto go... See you later!
W: Have fun swinging!

W to the other woman: What the heck was that about? Did you notice how strangely he acted?
The other woman: errr.... Gotto go!

Hilarious! Good example of how you need to be sure you understand what people are really talking about before saying anything or you might get more than you bargained for...

Funny...we had a couple tell us one night that they went out to dinner with another couple, who were from their church and seemed nice, etc...
and they asked them if they were into swinging!
They said no, and never called them to go out again!
hahaha

Reminds me of this 21 year old, blue eyed, blonde Russian girl I ran into at a bar. When her boyfriend got up to go to the men's room, she leaned over and said to me, " So, do you -how you say in America...swing?" After choking on the swig of bourbon I was drinking, I said "All the time!" When her boyfriend came back, they spoke in Russian for a minute. Then she grabbed my arm, and said, "Come, we go swing now!" To make a long story short we wound up at a playground. And I must have pushed her on that swing for an hour as she laughed hysterically and kept saying, "You crazy American!"

That is so funny!! That reminds me of the show Three's Company. Remember how Mr Furley or Mr Roper always listened in on a conversation and there were always innuendos. So funny!

I hope that you are having a great day my friend!! Thanks for the laugh :)

Seriously?! Eww, that's awesome that you overheard that. Talk about awkward. I love the lights in the photo. Nice shot.

Thank you so much! I am so glad you found the story amusing. I did not make this story up at all!

MM: Thanks! It wasn't funny at all when it happened:)

Eiri: Thanks so much! Thank you for visiting and commenting!

BG: That is hilarious. I know this couple who were asked the same question. The husband said, "I don't but my wife does." LOL.

M: Stay away from blond, blue eyed girls from Russia. Love the story though! You like the photo? It was an experiment.

Jodi: I remember the show! It was hilarious! Have a great evening my friend!

Mrs. Bear: Thanks for the compliment about the photo. Yep it was a strange conversation.
