It‘s exciting! Being voted most popular resident-of-the-year, but at an unfortunate compromise with Henri, the retirement home ladies man. What a stud, that sparkly diamond earring on his left earlobe.
Victory appears inevitable, as you charmingly sashay throughout the dining room collecting votes. However, the choir ladies remain loyal to Henri – damn his white denture smile; you need every vote!
Winning at any cost – your life motto – you pull Henri aside. “Listen, you old swinger, step out from the race…I’ll indulge in your naughty voyeur fantasy game. Give a ring on the bell and remember, take your heart medications!”
