When Tracy got home from working at TnT Oilfield Service all day, the first thing that he did was check to see if he had received any messages from JDate.com. He did! The woman that he liked in Cheyenne, Wyoming had messaged him back. She wanted to know more about him. Where did he work? What did he do? She asked if he could send her a couple more pictures, pictures tell a lot about a person she said.
Tracy did not mind answering her questions, he was glad that she was interested in him. He wrote that he worked for his father’s company, TnT Oilfield Service, that he was an operations manager. Sometimes he worked in the oil field at oil well locations, but most of the time lately he worked in the company office.
Tracy had some digital photographs that he had taken of cattle guard installations, containment barrier installations, and Ajax motors that he had repaired and installed, and he uploaded those and sent them to her. He said that tomorrow he would send her a couple of photographs of himself, if that is what she meant that she wanted. Could she please send some photographs of herself, she only had the one profile photo, and what was her name?
Tracy sent her the oil field installation photographs partly to stall. He did not want to send her any photographs of himself that had been taken in the past because he was worried that he would look too young. He had written in his profile description of himself that he was 30 years old, not 20 years old. She was 36 years old and she would not be interested in him if she found out that he was only 20.
Tracy wanted her to send him more photographs of herself. Her one photograph showed that she was very attractive. Her profile said that she was 5′-8″, athletic build, never married, no children, non-smoker, social drinker, bachelors degree, professional.
Cheryl was waiting for Tracy to send her a message that evening. She was glad to see that Tracy did in fact work for TnT Oilfield Service, and that this was his father’s company. When Tracy had first sent her a message, apparently using his real name as his user name, she spent over an hour trying to look him up on the internet, and saw that Tom Fisher owned TnT Oilfield Service in Belfield. Where Tracy worked, what his job position was, and the photographs that he sent of the oil field installations, all made sense and seemed to be true. She did not want to seem over eager, so she intended not to reply or send him any additional photographs of herself until the following morning. Also, she was going to have to dig up some photographs of herself, or possibly take some.
Cheryl was happy to be involved in this preliminary date activity. She was looking forward to driving to Gillette, Wyoming on a Saturday afternoon to meet Tracy for a date. She was thinking about what to wear, would it be cold then? Maybe she should buy something new to wear.
It dawned on her that she had not resolved whether Tracy was 20 years old like JDate.com said, or was he 30 years old like he wrote in his description. Could it be that he mis-typed “1993” instead of “1983”?
As Cheryl looked for photographs of herself to send Tracy, her mind was more and more working on the subject of whether Tracy was 20 years old, or 30 years old, until it came to the forefront of her mind, and she became angry. “Fuck!, what is that pervert up to! I swear, if I drive all the way up to Gillette and find out that he is 20 years old, I will cut his balls off!”
Cheryl went and sat on her bed, trying to calm down and settle down. After about five minutes of thinking things over, she resolved that if Tracy was 20 years old, she was not going to cut his balls off. That would not be appropriate. If somebody did something like that every time a 20 year old man did something stupid, there wouldn’t be any adult men. Maybe he has high hormone levels. Maybe he read somewhere that women in their mid-thirties are the most horny. I guess that I am supposed to be his “cougar”.
Cheryl became angry again. She was not about to be anyone’s “cougar”. If Tracy turned out to be 20 years old, Cheryl planned on telling him to get a hotel room. Cheryl planned on persuading him that she liked Sadism & Masochism, for him to get undressed and let her tie him to the bed. Then she was going to leave him there, naked and tied to the bed, to teach him a lesson. This is what she thought about before she went to sleep that night.
