A Great Idea
'It's a crazy idea,' said Chunky.
'It's a great idea,' said Titch.
Chunky's rucked up t-shirt revealed a milk-white paunch. 'I'm not hitchhiking again. Remember the Spanish lorry drivers wouldn't pick us up? Called us no-good Hippies.'
'Our hair was long, man.'
'Remember the Moroccan border?'
'The doe-eyed chick?'
'She had a great bum.'
'Wonder what she looks like now?'
'Fat. All those Mediterranean types turn to fat.'
'Maybe she's got a daughter.'
'Those chicks really dig mature men.'
They looked at each other. Chunky hitched his jeans over his bum-crack. 'You're right; it's a great idea, man.'
