Jealousy & blondes

I recently got a new receptionist in my practice.

She is by all accounts a very attactive woman. She has long blonde hair, large baby blue eyes and very long legs.

Now this is not out of the ordinary in and of itself, but for the fact that this receptionist has been paying....well how can I put it...."special" attention to me. In fact, you could say that she has been overtly flirting.

I typically ignore this as when I am in the clinic, as my focus is purely on my patients. But clearly the other girls in the clinic have not.

It is obvious as a result that someone has called my wife, Ms B, and alerted her to the new receptionist's behaviour.

During our night out for our anniversary recently, Ms B asked me during dinner:

"Do you like blondes more and Asian women?"

I had yet to catch on to her concern, and so simply made a joke that blondes are more beautiful. Well, wasn't this a mistake!

Ms B then started giving me the third degree.

"Are you sleeping with the new receptionist, Sonja?"

"Are you bored of Chinese women?"

"Are you bored of me?"

"I always catch you looking at blonde women. Why?"

The irony is that I do not particularly like blonde women. Dark hair is my thing. In any case, all her concerns were baseless, but how do you comfort a jealous women?

Anyway, I tried my best, and after I made it clear that this was all in her mind, she started to calm down, but then she began insiting that I sack the receptionist.

I said "No", not unless she performs poorly in her work.

That night when we got home, Ms B went out of her way to make herself available to me. She even modelled the sexy lingerie I bought her, and she let me take pictures of her in lingerie.

It ended up being a nice evening, but I have no doubt that we will revisit the issue of the receptionist again soon.

What do you like/dislike most about Chinese women?
