It is somewhat paradoxical that the outdoor exercise part of my dry January Challenge takes Mrs Playmo and I through numerous local vineyards. Mrs Playmo asked me to hold her dog’s lead then stripped off, placed a feathered hat at a rakish angle on her head and proceeded to practice her pole-dancing techniques on a vine shoot, singing an off-key “You can keep your hat on” that would make Joe Cocker turn in his grave.
She confided on the way home that she sneaks off on Friday nights whilst Mr Playmo is asleep to work in the sleazy joint down the road. It pays for her Tupperware party addiction and her (equally secret) rosé consumption. But don’t tell anyone, or she’ll be struck off the board at the local WI.
I don’t know if this is what that inspirational quote “dance like no one is watching” really meant. 🙂
Most definitely. Mrs Playmo inspired the quote. I think I may give it a go myself today.
Good for you Mrs Playmo! I like your style (both for dancing using vines, and for sneaking off to fund your Tupperware addiction 🙂 )
I will pass the message on. She is busy rummaging in her cupboard for today’s photo shoot. I fear the worst.
I look forward to it! 😀
Raunchy…. Mrs Playmo you never know who’s watching….
Mrs Playmo can be very insistant when she wants to. Be careful what you type or she’s be on the next Playmo flight to South Africa with a bagful of indecent proposals.
ooooooh now you’re talking my language…
Pole dancing in the wines…and people ask whatever there is to do in rural France!
Considering the reality. best not to tell them…
Definitely mustn’t tell – I love having the place to myself.
What a sexy woman. Did she get me a couple of bottles of wine while she was stripping?
Nope. She knows that you are on a diet.
Mrs Playmo is stripping in the vines and I am stripping the dirt, filth and paint from my little house of horror s in the UK….. do you think Mrs Playmo and I were meant for each other?
Mrs Playmo is also very good at stripping walls – she is doing a very good job in the Playmo house at the moment. She is also very small so she doesn’t pay for her plane tickets, or eat a menu to herself at the restaurant. Looks like you’ll be taking ten paces with Bulldog for the fair ladies hand.
Hello friend! Love this! I won’t tell anyone what a cheeky girl she is. Good for her for supporting her own Tupperware & wine addiction in lieu of passing those costs on to her husband. If Mr. Playmo ever finds out he should be glad she is so self-sufficient — and that she is such a talented pole dancer! 😉 He probably secretly fantasizes that she is those things anyway — what a surprise he’d get if he knew!
Big hugs to you ❤
*MM jumps up and down in excitement and spills her glass of water * Glad to see you back in bloggoland 😀 We’re not sure what Mr Playmo would think. He’s the town vicar. Which of course doesn’t mean that he doesn’t fantasize about his wife pole-dancing through the cupcakes at the parish tea party. 😀 However, you’re right that it’s wonderful to be so independent and take daring initiatives… sometimes way too daring, as you will see in tomorrow’s post. Huge gentle hugs coming right back atcha, girl xxxx
Hilarious and not what I expected when I opened this post my dear! Funny I carried a green play mobil dragon on my dashboard for a long time! Finally he got severe whiplash!
I have a German doll’s house figurine astride my rear view mirror who is disturbingly like my mum. It’s my way of having her close all the time. She never tells me off for my driving, either; a DRAGON IS DANGEROUS IN A CAR, KATHYRN. Geesh. Just think. He could have burnt you seat.
He did a couple of times but until his tail fell off mysteriously one day and went missing. He was always with me 🙂
A tail-less dinosaur. A tale of tail-less woe.
Yay! A Playmo post every day for a month! Christmas has come early. Good luck with your drink free walks. Not sure I am ready to go cold turkey but I certainly may try a daily walk or cycle ride. A happy, happy new year to you, full of smiles and good things. Xxx
I had a feeling you’d enjoy the idea. 🙂 I’m still toying with the idea of a Playmo Street blog. Today my knee hurts – miserable bugger can’t keep up with the pace. Oh well. Hair of the dog, and all that jazz. All the very best to you and yours too!
Love the mushroom feather to go with the whole pole dance thing.
Isn’t it sexy? Very dandy highway womanish. Hope you’re keeping well, Andra, and wishing you an unbroken MTM, lots of success in print and of course happiness and health too for 2015. By the way, I see that your books are available on Kindle, but is there any way that traditional page-turners like me can read your books? 😀
Paperbacks will be available in Europe on launch day, January 15, 2015. Every outlet has sets of rules for different publishers about pre-ordering. My publisher isn’t big enough to get a blanket pre-order. If you want to order my novel in paperback in France, here’s a link:
The memoir will be available on Amazon.Fr 1.15.15.
Cool! Thanks for the link, I’ll check it out. 😀
I like Mrs Playmo more and more 🙂
The woman is a basket case. You were made to be friends. 🙂
Ha, does she have any plans to visit Berlin?
This is your own secret life, isn’t it? Does PF know?
Lucky Mrs P could pole dance on a cactus singing the Cactus song and not suffer a jot. 🙂
She is extremely flexible but is very jealous of my knees, wrists and elbows. She wants me to learn to pole dance too.
You are being very modest. I bet you strut your funkiness when there is a pole in sight. 😉
A woman of independence and determination! Mrs Playmo makes a fine role model for any young girl.
I’m not sure Mr Playmo will see it that way if he finds out. He’s prefer Mrs Playmo to be promoted to President of the WI, or patent her mince pie recipe and get rich quick (I won’t tell you which blog she stole it from, but it is nastily familiar to yours).
Loving these Playmo posts… I’ve done nothing but smile since opening the first one! I’ve missed your wonderful ways MM! 🙂
P.S. I think a Playmo Street blog would be fantastic!
