This weekend, the boyfriend and I were both looking forward to a relaxing and uneventful weekend (read: fairly boring). Unfortunately, our weekends live 7 hours apart from one another.

However, while mine remained as uneventful as planned. His, not so much. He called to chat yesterday and I asked him what he had gotten up to. He said he'd had a pretty low-key Sunday. Then he got around to explaining his Saturday.

"Oh actually, I did get a call from this woman I know for some last-minute work on Saturday."

The fact that he was not immediately immediately forthcoming with the details was red flag number one.

"That's great! What did you do?"

"Oh, I just worked a trade show that was in town."

"Like, you just worked retail for the day?"

" I just sort of, walked the show...


"wearing a silly costume..."

"What kind of silly costume? What are you talking about?"

"...A Spartan costume."

"So by trade show, you mean?"


That's correct. While I sat at home in the middle of a constant rural snowstorm all weekend like a sucker (a bored sucker, with pocket lint), my boyfriend was wandering around tables of vibrators while dressed as a Spartan warrior.

I laughed for about half an hour.

Oh my gosh. Trade show indeed! lol

If only there were pictures hey?

Sounds like you need this guy living closer on the weekends too - he could be falling in with the wrong crowd!

Oh my god. This is priceless. I once went to the bar my boyfriend works at for their 7 Deadly Sins night, he left the back room for 5 minutes, came back and I was in lingerie sleeping on the bar as Sloth.. But being Spartacus at a sex show? That takes the cake.. "Borrow my sword ladies?"

Unfortunately he apparently doesn't know exactly who was taking pictures or where they might appear. I would scour the internet for them, but, I'm kind of afraid of what might come up if I google "Spartan Sexapalooza"
