I’ve Acquired Venereal Disease
I am here to report that I, Andra Watkins, have acquired venereal disease.
I have long been promiscuous. Willing to let just about anything stick itself in me. All for the pleasure of the experience. The adventure. The new, um, education I might obtain.
I am a Very Promiscuous Reader.
I’m waiting by the door for my latest acquisition: Venereal Disease and the Lewis and Clark Expedition by Thomas P. Lowry.
Thirty-one lusty men ventured from St. Louis into the wilds of the western frontier in 1804. They screwed their way across half a continent. William Clark has been proved through DNA tests to have fathered at least one child with a Nez Perce squaw.
At one point, Meriwether Lewis despaired at the amount of mercury required to paint the infected genitalia of his men. Mercury was the standard treatment for such things in the early 1800s. Yes. Mercury. The poisonous kind. Imagine those men walking around, naked from the waist down, their naughty bits shining with that silver glow. And they still probably got busy.
I can’t WAIT to read all about it.
What’s the craziest book you’ve read lately, Dear Reader?
Today’s Reader Question. Also about things that need to be painted.
