They were a little busy first thing this morning, but now they were not. This was fine for all inside since it gave them the time to get the lowdown on Ms. Johnson's new tenant. Sitting at the table with Todd and Lily sipping at her tea Florida continued. “I'm just saying, he has a lot of money and he is gorgeous and he is single.”
“All good qualities in a potential mate,” he said nodding at Lily.
“Potential mate, what are we animal kingdom?” she asked staring at him.
Todd explained. “Um yeah, even the Hippo wants a mate with the Hippo with the best water plants in the area. The lioness wants the lion with the shadiest tree. The girl bears want the boy bear with the biggest honey pot.”
“That's Winnie the Pooh.”
“Cashing in those Disney royalty checks you don't think Pooh gets all the bear bitches? Hooker please ... up to his neck in bear pussy.”
“Todd!” Florida snapped with a smirk.
“Oh I'm sorry Ms. Johnson,” he said apologetically tapping her shoulder. “I mean bear va-jay-jay,” he corrected pointing towards Lilies privates.
Lily swatted his hand away while Florida couldn't help, but smile. “What is wrong with you boy?”
“Come on people, bear va-jay-jay. That's funny,” he said giving his old friend and customer a kiss on her cheek.
“You're comparing me to hippos and bears?” Lily asked trying to look herself over.
Florida just sighed. “Honey, what I wouldn't give to have a body like yours.”
Lily turned to Todd. “And how do you get the male bear?”
“Oh baby,” Todd explained sticking his butt out. “The bear comes looking for me, this is the honey pot,” he said smacking his own ass.
Suddenly the door flew open and a Sips regular walked through the door with the help of a fresh face. “Allow me,” Louis said as he held the door open.
“Why thank you young man,” she said with a soothing smile.
“Not da problem Cher,” Louis said following behind her. Stopping in front of him and looking him over she was obviously wondering why he was so dusty. Seeing the puzzled look on her face he began to explain. “Doing some dry wall.” Smiling Mrs. Bell nodded while he advanced the explanation. “Just came for da tea and maybe some-ting to eat,” he said looking towards the counter wishing in his head that she would just go and order. “Sure smells good – boy,” he said hoping she would agree and trigger whatever it was in her head that wanted something to drink or eat.
“What is that accent?” she asked.
Oh fuck me, he thought. “Cajun, Louisiana Mam,” he said going the polite route.
“Do you eat Possum?”
No, but I eat da old ladies who don't get da fucking move on, he wanted to say aloud. “No Mam, not if I don't have to.”
“Oh God, why would you?” she asked in which Louis just shrugged his shoulders.
Fighting the urge to morph and swat her head clean off of her shoulders resulting in freaking everyone out in the coffee shop Louis chose to just rock back and forth while she stared and smiled. Getting antsier he decided to take the initiative. “Can I buy you a coffee?”
