writing challenge 18 – tttt1 – part 3

here’s my next bit to sean, and his post on part 2; as he says, feel free to join in on this one, or start a separate one with me or sean, or a reader of your blog – one rule though – i don’t know if this was made clear; all stories must begin with the first red section below; my only attempt at vanity……

But that was for tomorrow…..my present predicament banished all such thoughts from my mind, and I maintained only a minute awareness of the warm fluid collecting in my crotch, and that I had now possibly become a part of the assault on the olfactory system of the next poor victim…..I shall do my best to answer her questions…….
