How to make a first impression part II

Ed’s fiancé was coming to visit him. Ed had to work. He asked me if I would pick her up and show her around Fairbanks till he got off work. Sure I said. I pick her up. We go to lunch and get some coffee. She’s nice girl. Ed’s a good guy. They are perfect together. I asked her if there is anywhere she wants to go. She says the naughty shop. That’s an odd request, but oh well if that’s where she wants to go I guess I’ll take her. We drive a half hour out of town. I pull into the parking lot of the porn store. She looks at me and says "You’ve got to be kidding. Why did you bring me here? I’m not going to tell Ed, but let’s leave.” I said “You said you wanted to go to the naughty shop.” She said “No I wanted to go to the Knotty Shop.” An Alaskan gift shop an hour out of town. I had never heard of this place. She told me not to worry that it would be our dirty little secret. That night I brought her to Ed’s. He asked her if had if she had a good time. She said “Yeah, but Jims a pervert.” She looked at me and smiled. I had to explain to Ed what happened. He laughed and gave me a beer.
