Sex Among the Mainers
Recently, a man from New York City moved to rural Maine.
His first afternoon there, as he was just settling in, his next door neighbor, a long-time farmer in the area, came to his door.
"I'm having a little party tonight, and seeing how you're new and all, I thought I should invite you," the farmer said.
The man from New York was pleased. Clearly, people in Maine were friendlier than outsiders supposed.
"I'd love to come," the New Yorker said.
The Mainer held up a big hand. "I just gotta warn you, there's gonna be some drinking."
The New Yorker smiled. "I like to drink."
"And there's gonna be some fighting," the Mainer said.
The New Yorker was undeterred. "That's okay. I'm from New York. I've been in lots of fights."
"Well," the Mainer said. "There's gonna be some sex."
"Are you kidding me?" the newcomer said. "This sounds like a great party! What should I wear?"
"Don't matter," the Mainer said. "It's just gonna be you and me."
