Dr. Lana Larilla crept into the on-call room, and immediately locked the door behind her. She definitely didn't want to be disturbed. The green scrub top that had been clinging to her like a second skin came off easily over her head, and she tossed it onto one of the twin beds in the darkened room.

She had been looking forward to this moment all day. Off came her sensible but unattractive tennis shoes as she untied the string holding her scrub pants up around her hips to reveal the nude panties below. She opened the door to the bathroom, and was hit with a blast of hot, wet steam.

Kevin Grant, one of her fellow residents, was standing facing away from her, his entire glistening backside in full view. He turned when she opened the door, and a wicked smile cracked across his handsome face. "Care to join me Larilla?" Lana was staring at his face, her head held high, mostly to avoid accidently catching a glimpse of his perfectly formed ass again. Who knows what she might do then? Unfortunately for Lana, Dr. Grant was as sexy as he was obnoxious. Despite both of them being in the middle of 15 hour night shifts, he still looked great, and she looked like shit

"What the hell, Grant?" She asked loudly, her voice echoing around the tiny bathroom.

"Why didn't you lock the door if you were gonna run around naked in here?"

6 hours ahead but listening Live again....

I worked with a cousin of Iggy's at Barnes-n-Noble in the 1970s. He was staying in Iggy's flat on 10th street. Iggy had his own weed/hash/ pipe from a sculpture of his penis.The substance went in the balls and a person would suck the tip. Luckily i did not have to suck his willy since I had gone clean back then. The closest I ever got to Iggy was farly frontish at Irving Plz and visting his (later richness) posh flat in the Cristadora - Iggy not present.
