Bus porn lady

After we got to the port in Victoria, my friend and I took a bus to the gardens. During the first half of the trip we sat across from a retired woman who was chatty enough to almost miss her stop. She had been to Seattle once in the past, and remembered little about her trip other than a particular incident in her hotel. Her story went something like this.

"My husband and I were in the hotel room getting ready to leave, and he had flipped the TV. He was scanning through the channels and suddenly came across... porn. He'd never seen it before, I guess, and he was just mesmerized. He was just staring at the screen. I left the room and said I'd see him in the lobby in a few minutes. I waited down there a long time until I finally headed back up to the room to see what the matter was. When I got to the room, he was still sitting there in front of the TV, staring. I could barely pull him away from the thing, eh!

"Later on that night, he had fallen asleep and I was watching the TV, and wouldn't-you-know, I came across more porn. I hadn't seen it before either, but it looked interesting, so I decided to watch it for a little bit. I ended up watching the whole thing. It wasn't really my thing, I guess, but it was interesting. Oh! the acting; it was so bad, eh? I remember we went to the Space Needle twice—why he wanted to go twice I don't know—but mostly what I remember about Seattle is the porn."
