Charlene is frustrated with her husband Jeff’s addiction to a fantasy sports league, so she decides to lure him back to reality by becoming the fantasy. She devises an ingenious plan involving his laptop computer, and a video of her working out, naked. Will her plan work? If the video does not sway his attention, Jeff will be powerless when it ends, and he finds his night has just begun.
Charlene was already on her exercise bike when Jeff opened the door and made a beeline to his laptop, plopping into his favorite chair in the living room.
“How was your day,” Jeff said as he sat down, obviously only feigning interest since he was already opening his laptop.
“You doing that fantasy football crap again?” Charlene said, as she began to pedal a little faster. She felt she had to complain just enough so he would not catch on to her little ruse.
“It’s Tuesday night,” Jeff said. “You know I always get updated league stats on Tuesday.”
“Whatever,” Charlene shouted over the whirring of her exercise bike, pretending like she was pissed about his inattention, as usual.
She was not really pissed, not tonight, anyway. She knew that, soon, her plan was going to be set in motion, and she would have her husband’s full attention. She pedaled even faster as she glanced over at him, waiting for him to open up his computer and start it up.
“What’s this?” Jeff said, when his computer started up, and the video began to play.
Charlene ignored him, hoping he would continue to watch. She slowed her pedaling as Jeff watched the video of her exercising in the nude on his computer screen. Her friend at work gave her a simple program on a flash drive that started the video but would not let it stop until it was finished. If Jeff did not get up and walk away, he would be watching her dance to a Zumba exercise program for the next twenty minutes.
Charlene felt her mouth stretch into a smile, as her husband sank into his chair, continuing to watch the video instead of complaining about it. Convinced he was not too far gone in his addiction to his fantasy league, she stopped pedaling, and climbed off the exercise bike. It appeared her plan was beginning to work, and with any luck at all, tonight she planned to break her husband’s fantasy football addiction and make sure, she became his fantasy again.
