PACKAGE INTERRUPTUS
(11/4/10)


he was
always first
into the office
by an hour
or so

that
gave him time
to save backups
from the network
run daily reports
for the previous
day's activity
and to surf
the web
for internet
porn
in peace

the typical
start
to most
executives'
days
he thought

it wasn't like
he was jacking
off
or anything

at least
not
every day

however
his wife's
once a week
sex schedule
didn't quite match
his four or five
times a week
desires

things
could
happen

better
they happen
alone

today
happened to be
one of those
four or five
times

as he was
about to conclude
one job
and commence
with the other
he heard
the front door
fling open

"FedEx!"

thankfully
he was concealed
one office
down the hall
but his office
was the only
with lights on
so it was only
a matter
of time

click close
the browser
stand up
and quickly
   but carefully
zip the pants
then find something
to hide the bulge
in his otherwise
finely pressed
slacks

too late

"how you
doing
today sir?"

deliver guy
asks

"doing
just fine"

he mumbles
hoping
the man
was focused
on the delivery
and not upon any
erectile
distractions

"please sign
right here
and it's yours"

he signs his name
hands the pad
back
and sees a smile
spread upon
the guy's face

"you have
a good start
to your day
sir!"

he could swear
that he heard
some laughter
as the outer door
opened
then closed

he sat
back down
embarrassed
depressed
deflated
wondering what
to do
next

with
two more days
until Saturday
he reopened
the browser
his trousers
and got back
to business
