Janet wanted desperately to know what went on in his men-only club, so as soon as her husband left she disguised herself complete with moustache  and followed him.

Hidden in the bushes she watched and listened as men arrived, pushed the buzzer, and gave their password. Approaching the door that was beneath a hideous head, she pressed the buzzer and in her best “man” voice said testosterone.

What awaited her on the other side of the door will haunt her for the rest of her seated around a room sipping tea and enjoying petit-fours while knitting socks. Truly frightening.

    Such a different take on the prompt, with a touch expertly applied tongue-in-cheek. Well done.

    Dear Patricia,

    Well, our secret’s out. Thanks a lot.

    (Nice reporting here.)

    Dear Patricia,

    This one will haunt me for some time to come. I think I just heard one man ask the other, “Do these jockey shorts make my butt look big?” Well done.

    Dear Patricia,
    Some doors are better left closed. Shame on you for giving away our password. At least you didn’t describe the secret handshake. Cute story.

    Thank you for this one. After a very trying day, it was a joy to laugh out loud at the vision of the men knitting socks!

    I think she finally found a true gentleman’s club.

    I enjoyed the way you built up the suspense and then completely upset our expectations. Good one!

    Good one! Liked this very much:-)

    Heehee! I was all caught up in the suspense and blam! Men knitting socks. Now I have this funny image of men sitting around, sipping tea with their pinky in the air while talking about the weight of yarn they are using or if they should stick with 2-ply or go all the way with 12-ply. 😛

    I love reading all of these stories! What i get from the prompt and what everyone else gets, is always so fun to see! This cracked me up, Patricia. I posted this on my FB this week, and it seems timely for your story! Should give you a giggle.
