Her chartreuse splendor entranced Ralphie. Wouldn’t he be the envy of his buddies; no doubt the lovelies would flock to her like a bogo sale on lace panties.
Ralphie’s imagination was much grander than his reality. Popo pulled him over when he passed. No more back-door, down-low activities; she was the town crier for immoral dalliances wherever she was parked. And she guzzled oil!
Ralphie donated her to Samaritan Ministries, where she delivers hot meals to elderly shut-ins. Miss Pruitt convinced him to volunteer as a driver. Popo now smile when he passes. And the chippies have flown away.
chartreuse = the shade of green the car is
Popo = police
bogo = buy-one-get-one (free)
chippie = sexually liberated females and also a play on birds (lovelies) i.e. fun-loving fems
