Wolfe’s Woofers: First Date Warning


Dennis-Wolfe-Wolfes-Woofers“Let me have an American coffee,” I told the waiter at Sailaway Café.

“Anything else, sir?” he asked, when he served the coffee.

“Can you please turn the music down just a little bit?”

When he turned the music down I turned on my electronic book and started to read. Then I realized that with the quiet I could hear the conversations around me. At the next table two attractive young Spanish women in their early twenties took a seat.

“I know three different girls who have been out with him,” Maria said. “They all have the same story. This guy, Ivan, is so nice and a gentleman and he sweet talks them into getting alone with him. Then he rips their clothes off and has his way with them.”

“Oh, my! What would you do if he asked you out?”
