The Sultan

Once when I was working as a manager of a regional chain bookstore I met a manager of another store in the chain, who, almost as soon as he introduced himself, started telling me how he lived with his wife and his girlfriend, that they all slept in the same bed, and that he'd put them both on the payroll and neither one did any actual work. He was pretty proud of himself. Since he was a "portly fellow" who reminded me of Babe Ruth, I promptly nicknamed him The Sultan of Twat.

You could stop by his office on most days and find him back there playing footsie and reading the paper with his assorted lovers. He also happened to be managing two stores at once, and many days he would simply tell each store that he was at the other that day, when in fact he was at home (and presumably in bed).

It didn't last long, maybe a few months until the girlfriend left him, and then the wife as well, but as we like to say in our house, "don't be sad it's over, be glad it happened"

I wondered how they managed to co-ordinate all their birthdays, or whether to be a Perfect Master you even had to be born on a certain day, in order to facilitate that transition. The great thing about being a Perfect Master is it seemed you really didn't need any special skills, except perhaps plumpness and sitting still . I didn't have either of those traits a

  • I met this kid with A.D.D. - Asshole Dad Disease. Nothing wrong with him that trading in the dad for a better model wouldn't fix.

  • a play in no acts: man of the cloth, staunchly anti-gay, anti-drugs, anti-you-name-it, periodically checks into a downtown hotel to have a 'private retreat', where he can write little books and sermons about how jesus was anti-gay, anti-drugs, and anti-you-name-it. man of the cloth gets bored, gets a little lonely, gets to thinking about how nice it would be to get high and have sex with a male hooker. aaahhh. that was good. afterwards he goes home to his little miss perfect submissive female and his well groomed kids and his wannabelieve congregation and tells them how bad everything is - and he should know. in fact, he's gonna do a little more research on all those very bad things.
