Here's what I need to do: 1. Get Hobby, 2. Floss. Blogging just gets in the way.

Smoking Man

People rely on me to be a valuable source of information. I get phone calls and emails from people with questions ranging from if they should cut their hair to if they should press charges.

Usually, I have an answer. Occasionally, I make something up. I am never without an answer. Until last night.

Sue called me with a dilemma. She is not bright, but she is beautiful. We get along smashingly. She calls me every week with a new question. I am always happy to assist. Last week, I was easily able to field a question about why fake crab doesn't taste like real crab. I was unprepared for this week's call.

Sue does not give head. She explained to me that she doesn't even "accidentally" give head. Sometimes, it is best not to ask her to explain what she means. I assume that accidentally giving head is when you fall, open-mouthed into a man's lap. As I am rather clumsy, I understand. It happens.

Her ban on what she likes to call "Smoking Man" is causing problems in her relationship. I told her that sometimes, in a relationship, you just have to suck things up. This went over her head.
Her aversion to oral sex is due to the "texture." I told her that it's just like having a raw oyster in your mouth. You don't hold it there for long. You just swallow it. Crackers are optional. Not that I have anything against crackers. Some of my favorite parents are crackers.

"No, it's not even that," she said. "I can't even have it near my mouth. I don't even like sushi because of the texture."

I had nothing helpful to say. I really, really like sushi.

Is that ALL sushi or just selected flavours? Perhaps she would like to try some chocolate dipped - um - sushi - - -

At 10:07 PM, Blogger skinnylittleblonde said...

LOL @ /Smoking Man'. Maybe she could be like Clinton & just not inhale.
I hate Sushi, in the truest of senses, but love raw oysters.
'Smoking Man' once saved my life. LOL.

At 10:08 PM, Anonymous Alison said...

At least she doesn't call it "Burning Man."

At 10:56 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

The texture of sushi has never been a problem for me until the day I was coerced into eating eel. I'm glad I did it to say that I've done it... but I will never do it again.

Maybe your friend ate an eel and thinks oral sex is like that? But she might be doing it wrong, then. Nothing about it reminds me of an eel.

At 11:13 PM, Anonymous Karmyn said...

I just came from Claudia's blog - where she has tons of pictures of fish - to your blog with "sushi"....they both scare me. One-eyed or two, those things are dangerous.

At 11:17 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Just tell her its like Kharma. What good you give out into the world will comeback to you tenfold!

At 11:53 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I am speechless at this. No, not because there's sushi or anything else in my mouth right now. It's because I'm laughing so hard! You really take the cake, girl.

At 12:05 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said... wanna come over tonight?

did i say that already?

At 12:16 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Tell her that fake head doesn't have the same texture as real head...and that his is fake.

Sushi -- You lost me with the photo ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm shusi...

At 1:50 AM, Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

It is possible to accidently give head. Sometimes you just fall and your mouth lands on the penis.

Happens to me all the time.

Um... (glancing around awkwardly)... well... (racking brain for a witty retort)... I... ah... (Bice wanders off mumbling incoherently under his breath)

I like head. (Giving. Not getting. I don't own my own penis, so that would be kinda weird.)

I like sushi too.

Mmm. Head.

Mmmmmmmmmmmm... sushi.

At 4:29 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Tell her to suck it up and take it like a man. Wait, a man doesn't take it that way. At least, not the man that wants her to take it that way. I guess I have nothing useful either, per usual.

At 4:31 AM, Blogger NWJR said...

I once dated a woman who gave incredible head but refused to let me go down on her. The relationship was doomed, because I love doing that. She just got all squeamish and freaked out if anyone "went near there".

Freaky, that one was.

LOL..word verification is "ylvGAGx".

I'm glad you're there for your friends in time of need. Too bad you couldn't help Sue. Poor Sue.

At 4:43 AM, Blogger Ranger Tom said...

I dated a woman once who wouldn't go down on me...

And then got upset because I wouldn't go down on her... Speaking of sushi.

Anyway, I enjoy going down on women. I'm actually a lesbian trapped in a man's body. But If she won't do it, niether will I.

At 4:52 AM, Anonymous slick said...

It's a wonder Sue ever has any boyfriends. I mean, seriously...comeon. Maybe a "hands-on" tutorial might help her Mist?

At 5:17 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I guess that means she isn't a spitter or a swallower. No way you can fix that. But you can trip and fall in my lap any time, darlin', with or without your new cowboy hat.

At 5:37 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I had to explain your blog to Faz the Cat, it was all a bit too sophisticated for her to understand. I think she's still in a state of shock. Christine

At 5:58 AM, Blogger Cheeky said...

Sushi Rocks and so does Oysters (without crackers)!!!

Tell her to add a little hot sauce......(hehe) and maybe he won't ask for it again....but then again maybe she will

At 6:04 AM, Blogger Avitable said...

Sometimes, you definitely just have to suck it up or else you'll blow it and be licked by the relationship, knocked to your knees, have to head out the door and look for oral support.

At 6:15 AM, Anonymous swamp said...

At first, I thought the picture was of some cupcakes that didn't "rise" and you just frosted them with blue icing. (Flat blue cupcakes.) Then, I read the post and couldn't figure out how it had anything to do with the "textURE.". But then, when do any of your pictures have anything to do with the textURE?
Well, maybe sometimes. Then, I clicked on the picture to "enlarge" it and realized it was sushi. There are so many puns just waitng to happen here...I can't wait to see what your creative readers "come" up with.
Sorry this went over her head. Too bad she's not over her boyfriend's...oh, I have to stop.

At 6:16 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

You could tell her that it's approved by Atkins...

High in protein


At 6:21 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

There is a conceit within pornography that some women must be "taught" to perform fellatio by older, more experienced sluts.

It breaks my heart that Sue never received that mentorship. What a waste.

At 6:24 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I wouldn't kick you out of bed for eating crackers.

Well, if you get anyone to come up with [word choice] a satisfying answer, you may save, enhance, or prolong the agony of [depending on the answer] thousands of America, at least. You might even most notably be able to help Bill and Hillary's marriage and political fortunes.

I am afraid I might never be able to look at sushi the same way.

I'm still stuck on "accidentally"! I have a friend like that. "Was Olivia Newton John a singer?" that was the stupid question of last week! There are MANY more but that was the winner of the week.

Texture? Like, penile texture? Or the consistency of its emissions?

I have always wondered why so many women don't enjoy this activity. Then again, maybe she's encountered some chunky spunk.

She does know that it can be different, every time - doesn't she? I just hate to think she's only tried this a few time - and given up.

At 9:00 AM, Blogger mist1 said...


She likes chocolate men. I should have suggested that.


Who says smoking is bad for your health?


She dated burning man once. He was really hot.

h & b,

Eel is good.


I have to go visit Claudia now,


That is the beauty of smoking man.


Cake and sushi sounds good right now.


You'll just try to trip me and hope that I fall with my mouth open. Sounds like a good evening.


Fake head is nowhere near as good as real head, but in a pinch, it will do.


You want some right now, don't you?


You lucky devil.


I got all excited with the anonymous comment. I thought someone was going to expose their innermost secrets.


We are related if your family has a great beach home that I can use for a few weeks.


There's a tv show where that's the theme.


I know, I know. Sushi.


See, she's really stumped us on this one.


I don't have GAG in my word verification.


I do what I can for my friends. I do what I can to my enemies.


What is the deal with the trading of services thing? Either you enjoy it or you're investing. Which is it?


I think a mouth-on tutorial would be better.


Spitting is just unlady-like.


I am so sorry. I should have warned you.


But do you like oysters with Altoids?


Oral support is my favorite comment of the day.


Cupcakes? Have you not heard of the whole low carb thing?


She prefers the South Beach diet.


I should start a mentorship program. I am a community volunteer.


Are Bill and Hillary still together? Are they adopting an African baby?


It will probably arouse you from now on. I feel the same way.


Smoked clams?


She's neither a flame swallower or a flame spitter.


Honey, everyone knows that the car wash charges too much for a hand job. Go to the spa.


Don't play prude. You know you smoke man.


Men like clumsy girls.

Thanks for coming by.


Have your friend call Sue.


That explains why porn stars always have such radiant skin.


What? You don't like sushi?


Neither do I, Dallas. Neither do I.


Kois are good eating.


You can't leave out the nuts.


Sure you're not. Me neither.


I do need a soundtrack.


Chunky Spunky is a Ben & Jerry's flavor, right?

It is an acquired taste. You word things so much better than I do. You didn't sound crude at all.

For the life of me I can't understand women who don't like giving bj's - I mean, it's perfect, when you take a man in your mouth and pleasure him, he'll do anything for you. Anything. I get such a kick out of that it's worth swallowing oysters.

Puss (yes, ok, maybe feeling a bit dom today)

I'm sure that he loves her and that sex is just the MOST incidental part of their relationship, and that they will do well together forever, AND he will, never ever seek this particular form of pleasure anywhere.....

The texture, of, er man bits is not at all like sushi. Tell her that lesbians must have quite a horrible time of it and that, being straight, she is lucky. That, or this guy has horrendous hygeine, in which case she should move on because the texture of the man bits should not be equated with limp dead slabs of fish.

And I enjoy sushi, among other things, immensley.

No head, no problem. As long as she's putting her cooter in the air.

Are you sure that you can handle the weekly retarded question?


How is your Bible study class going?


Are we married? I may have a few things to talk about with yours.


How's the computer?


I like salty snacks.


I am starting to resent the obligatory nature of oral pleasures. Can't I just pay for it in cash?


You should call her. Her current relationship isn't working out.


I'd vote for her.


I thought dudes like sushi. Is it a texture thing?

Thanks for coming by.


You're such a good listener. I'm glad it took an important discussion about oral pleasures to bring you back to commenting.


That is so manipulative. Well done.


I love this blog too. It's a lot of fun.

Thanks for stopping by.


"Sushi" or sushi?


I know, right?




Man bits? I love that. I also love sushi.


I love the word cooter. Must remember to use it more frequently.


Try to push your eyes back in then drink a glass of water upside down. Wait, maybe that's hiccups.

So, I guess you don't want to meet me for sushi and drinks this weekend?

I once broke up with a woman because she didn't give me my birthday blowjob. Not that that was the only reason...more like the straw that broke the camels back.

Noted sex columnist Dan Savage says that in this day and age if a person won't give head or eat pussy you should dump them.

for a minute there, I thought maybe she was a lesbian, but then you mentioned she doesn't like sushi, so I guess that's out.

At 5:30 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I'm afraid I understand the accidental part. I was 21 years old before I found out I didn't actually invent the blow job three years earlier. It just seemed like fun at the time, and we didn't have the Internet then. What I don't get is the correlation between sushi and giving head. Note to self: suggest Japanese restaurant next date

At 6:13 PM, Blogger heartinsanfrancisco said...

I could eat sushi every night. Lunch, too.

The idea of giving head "accidentally" is intriguing. Sleep walking, maybe?

If your friend is comfortable using an expression like "Smoking Man," she has more problems than we can cover here.

At 6:21 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Is it just me or is the taste affected by what the guy has eaten recently (other than you, of course). Sometimes it seems a little peppery. If he hasn't gotten off in a while it will be thicker.. so try to do it a lot. They'll buy you jewelry, too.

Don't forget to floss those little hairs out of your teeth.

At 7:38 PM, Blogger Jack's Shack said...

She explained to me that she doesn't even "accidentally" give head.

I accidentally got it once or twice, but since this is a children's blog I'll save that story for later.

Did you say foot worship? If that whole marriage thing doesn't work out, call me.


This is the sort of stuff that I live for.

I really think there's no better first date than sushi. Really.


Please talk to Sue for me.


I like pepper...and pecker.


Thank you for respecting the children that read this blog.

At 9:09 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I'm very good at giving head. You don't hang on to your virginity until you're almost 20 without making up for it in other areas.

And by other areas, I mean fellating gentleman callers.

Oh, and "smoking man" is just fine, but tell her to run away quickly if he says it ever burns when he pees.

Sushi is my favourite food in the whole world. Yeah, I agree with the commenter who said this could be a relationship deal breaker. I once dated a guy who was really hung up (mother issues) and couldn't or wouldn't go there. But he couldn't go anywhere. Frozen, pathetic man. I hope he and his mummy are doing well. K

Thanks for clarifying what "other areas" meant. I thought maybe you meant your other, other areas.


I'm not sure that it's okay to write sushi and pussy in the same sentence.


Frozen Man? Does he know Smoking Man?


Glad that I can help expand your horizons.

This post was so funny and some of the comments have made me gag.

Umm. I feel like an outsider. I don't mind the activity, but I don't care for the extra protien. I get enough of that in my diet.

Then again I never have tasted it, so I may like it and not know.

Gotta work on that gag reflex if you like "sushi."

Good question. I will have to ask her. Of course, I will have to explain to her what a lesbian is.
