The Item for Day8: Eight Maids a’Milking

The Person all caught up and Ready to Go: Me


Mrs. Baxter called her eight maids to the foyer to discuss the pending visitor.

“Dylan will be here soon. He will show you how to properly use the new steamer on the curtains. Please listen to him and pay close attention.”

Just as Mrs. Baxter finished talking, the doorbell chimed. Mrs. Baxter opened the door and greeted Dylan.

Immediately upon seeing the hunk of man, one of the maids gasped, while the other maids giggled like school girls. Mrs. Baxter failed to mention that Dylan was attractive – very attractive.

After demonstrating how to use the steamer, Dylan asked the maids if they had any questions. To his surprise, eight hands were raised. Dylan ended up showing each maid – individually – how to use the steamer.

Watching from kitchen, Mrs. Baxter smiled and thought to herself, “I think those maids are a’milking it, just a little.”

  1. Lenore now you please write something based on fantasy. I am sure you can write something wonderful in that genre. You are doing a great job with this challenge.
    I hope your next item will be ‘Ladies Dancing’, Best of luck for that.

  2. Hilarious!
    Oh – hey…
    did you ever see that episode of Beverly Hills 90210 (yeah, the OLD one)
    where Brenda gets all mad at Dylan because he is spending more time with the steamer than he is with her?! No?!

    1. Hahahahahaha! SIG, you got me. Seriously. Though Dylan was not ‘built’ like most ‘hot’ guys are portrayed, he was the guy I had in mind. I had such a crush on Dylan. You made me blush by calling me out.

  3. As I am Mrs Baxter, could you please send Dylan this way? Oh and I could do with just one or two of the maids around here. Promise to keep them away from Dylan.

  4. I was about to ask if Judith Baxter (my sister) had seen your post, then I saw your comment that she’s the inspiration. Oh yes!! that’s our girl.

    God bless, Christine

    1. Welcome, Christne. I’m honored to have Judith’s sister stop by for a visit. Glad you noticed the name. I’ve never met your sister, but something told me she was a woman of good taste. (smile) Blessing to you, too. ~ Lenore

That was my thought on the matter. Your comment?
