A return to LippLibs, while I return to the land of the living

I hope I'm back to work today and posting.
But, just in case, here's a fun thing to tide us over.

Remember LippLibs?




We had a contest I think with this a while back.

How about another?

Here's the prompt: I knew I would find my joie de vivre, but had no money on
"in the choir loft with the parson and his organ."

You fill in what should be in your quotation marks.

No points for lewdness, all evidence to the contrary.

Contest opens now.

I knew I would find my joie de vivre, but had no money on it being with Giovanni. He was not as handsome and tall as Marco or as colorful and stylish as Manwell or as demanding and exacting as Trevor. But we just FIT. He wasn't perfect on the floor, but neither was I. I stepped too wide one day and began to stumble. But his arm was there, up along the full length of mine, muscle and confidence lifting me, preventing the fall. Then his brown eyes caught me and -- from there -- the joy of motion, the music of movement, the harmony of two bodies forming one fluid effortless passion. Always with him, now, for nearly twenty years.
