Hiking, Fellatio and My Mom. Oh Yeah...
Have you ever walked in on a guy getting head?
How about while you were out hiking with your mom?
How about twice in one day?
Yeah, I know, awkward.
And there we were, ambling, rambling, absolutely jambling, along a very well-traveled path along a very well-traveled stretch of highway leading out of a very well-traveled town. The Grottos and Devil’s Punchbowl, just several hundred yards from Highway 82 leading up the tourist trap that is Independence Pass outside of Aspen.
Trying to show dear old mom a pleasant afternoon I opted for this simple trail. And as we are chatting what do we almost trip over a gray head of hair in the lap of another gray head of hair. Head number one is bobbing up and down with total enthusiasm and remains entirely oblivious to the peanut gallery that has stumbled upon them. Heads cocked (pun very much intended) to the side, my mother and I took in the scene, turned awkwardly on our heals and left. Regressed. Digressed.
And there you have it ladies and gentlemen, I just witnessed a full-blown (again, pun intended) fellatio-tastic experience, on a well-travelled trail, with my 57 year-old mother. So much for trying to convince her that Aspen is nothing more than a quaint, mountain town, rather than the swelling, writhing sauna of sin and depravity that she hoped it wasn’t. And it’s really not. I swear.
And it gets better. Oh yes it does.
I almost read-ended the Range Rover in front of me as I curled around Aspen’s S-curve. I was distracted you see. When we passed the airport the Subaru behind me contained two passengers. A young woman and a young man. And then there was one. Head that is. And her head did not reappear until we got to the S-curve. I would know. I kept checking while trying to maintain a conversation that resembled normal with my mother. We talked about hiking Highlands bowl. I checked the rearview mirror. We talked about working at Pitkin County Dry Goods. I checked the rearview mirror. We talked about climbing Pyramid. I checked the rearview mirror. We talked about, something, I don’t remember what. I checked the rearview mirror. I almost rear-ended the Range Rover. My mother did a reverse Mom-arm that all mothers seem pre-programmed to do to prevent their progeny from flying through the windshield upon breaking hard at an unexpected red light. She screamed something along the lines of, “What the hell! Watch where you are going.”
And then I was forced to explain the second incident of head that was headed our way. And then I explained to my mom that, well, seven minutes ago there were two heads, and then there was one, and now there are two again. And I couldn’t stop wondering what was going on in that little red, Subaru behind me. Welcome to Aspen, Mom.
And that is the story of how I witnessed two incidents of fellatio, with my Mom, in very populated areas. I feel like there should be a moral to this story. I can’t think of one. If you can think of one let me know.
