Perils in Partners
by Jez Patterson
The happy couple always act so incredibly wet when it comes to their wedding day! Percina's ever-pithy mother had complained on one occasion. It's why the ceremony has to conclude with them giving each other a wring.
The bachelorette party Percina was transporting in her new space-limo were gathered around her husband.
"He'd specifically asked for virgin olive oil... so you can imagine Popeye's disappointment when he took her up the aisle."
The bachelorettes all laughed, using the excuse to flap hands at Martin and get a touch of his enhanced musculature. Percina didn't remember getting Martin's humor enhanced too, but it probably came as a result of the increased mental capacity she'd made the mistake of paying for.
Her knuckles turned white as Martin told the story of how Captain Percina Saunders--commander of a full, honest-to-goodness, warship--had lost that command when she'd decided to marry her first mate.
Martin didn't divulge that demotion had developed into dismissal when his darling damsel had demonstrated her disagreement on the decision.
The limo business was... temporary.
