Summary: Trouble for the First Couple.
Women love to gossip. There is just something about a female that makes her have to gossip. A curiosity. A compulsion. A need.
So, when a group of women, who have been friends longer than they've been married to their husbands, get together, one can only guess what will be doing.
This small group of 5 women, gathered in the fancy office of the First Lady to all share stories about men. But not just any men -- their husbands.
"That's nothing Maggie. Just wait till you hear this one," A lady by the name of Rose Marie spoke up.
"We're listening." Diane said, leaning her body into the cozy little group.
"Okay, last year, when Rich and I were at my parents house, he decided that he wanted to go for a dip in the pool."
"Uh-oh." Patty said.
"Yeah, so he decides that he wants to go swimming, only he realized that he had no swim trunks. Being the dare-devil that he is, none of that really bothered Rich. He just went in his birthday suit."
"There's a climax to this story, right?" Maggie asked.
"Yeah, there's a climax." Rose Marie answered. "Apparently, what he didn't realize was that Mom and Dad were on their way home, with several guests, for a pool party of their own."
"Oh no!" Abbey said through her laughs.
"Oh yes." She continued. "They all, all 10 or 15 of them, walked out back, to the pool, to find Rich, skinny dipping."
After all of the laughter subsidded, Abbey chimed in with a mischevious grin. "I can top that one."
"By all means, Abbey." Rose Marie motioned for Abbey to begin her story.
"Damn!" Maggie suddenly shouted.
"What?" Patty asked.
"I have to go. I have a meeting in half an hour, but I really want to hear this story." She explained.
"Why don't we all accompany you to your car, and Abbey can tell her story on the way." Diane suggested.
"Brilliant." Maggie replied, as the 5 women stood and moved out into the hallway.
After being surrounded on all sides, Abbey began. "The day that Jed took the oath of office, he was so nervous. So completely lost in himself. So, to relax himself, he decided that he would take some herbal pills designed to do just that."
"Wait a minute, I remember watching that on TV..." Maggie said with a smile in her voice.
"Me too. So there was actually a-" Patty began.
"Just let her tell the story, instead of assuming things." Diane interjected.
"Yes mother." Patty snapped.
"Enough you two, or you don't get to hear my story." Abbey looked up at her two friends, who quickly shut their mouths, then resumed. "Jed thought that he was taking herbal pills, but what he ended up taking, and I have no clue how he got a hold of it, but it was this pill that came from France... an illegal pill from France." Abbey paused.
"Ooooh, this is getting good." Diane said.
"Yeah, so the pill... it was way too strong for him, and he ended up passing out hours before he was to go take the oath."
"How'd you get him to wake up?"
"That's where this story really gets interesting." Abbey grinned, not realizing that their was a reporter following her and her friends with a voice recorder.
