Travelogue, Czech Republic, November

(Ed. Note: The first two installments reside here and here.)

I entered the small apartment cautiously. I'd been invited earlier in the day by two French travelers. Women. Femmes. I was ready.

I will deflower them.

And yet, I was immediately deflated by a stench that beat me about the nose, not unlike what we in the western hemisphere call "body odor." I had heard stories from compatriots back home about The Great Flaccidity of '96, but I mistook it for legend. These aromas were nearly three-dimensional, so strong were their powers.

11/25/2004 The Rid (2): Where's the rest of this short? Starts promisingly, but goes nowhere. Fast.
11/25/2004 Will Disney (3): happy thankgsiving
11/25/2004 Litcube (3): I think this short goes somewhere. It has a point, hits it fast, and bows out. Can't say the same thing for some other shorts of late that have overstayed their welcome.
11/25/2004 TheBuyer: so you don't like Czech food, Canadian backpackers, or French women? What about Estonian soccer moms?
12/3/2004 TheBuyer (1): cheap
12/3/2004 Turgid: Come on, Buyer, you're getting vindictive.
12/3/2004 TheBuyer: to be fair, it's the same joke in my short which you one starred, "people from other countries are different and weird". I wasn't going to rate it at all because piling another low rating on a bland short is unnecessary. this short could be called "I met two slutty French chicks and they stunk" which could have been funny if the tone of the thing wasn't so ignorant/aarogant. The difference between the two shorts is that there's no joke about european women and soap that hasn't been made already, and better. The line from 'Killing Zoe' - in paris it's good to smell like you have been fucking - for example.
Either way, did you go over the conversation about rating shorts which Jon Matza started here?
12/3/2004 TheBuyer: wait a minute...you're starting to sound awfully bloody familiar. quick, what was SOTW's first album?
12/3/2004 Turgid: Who is SOTW?
12/3/2004 TheBuyer: Mistaken identity, you just reminded me of a guy I tend to get into pretty decent discussion/get very drunk with, thought he started posting on the sly. de nada.
