I'm a manthropologist, baby.


 
-My friend said I'd never get an anthropologist into bed.
-She's right. Says here on the Mandible of Manifest Sexual Destiny, "Anthropologists are asexual geeks."
-Which makes you?
-A "manthropologist," manly, love-making anthropologist.

This is my response to Trifecta's Trifextra Week 5 Challenge. I have no idea what I was smoking when I imagined this dialogue, except to say that I have Indiana Jones on the brain thanks to a commenter on Kim from Let Me Start By Saying's entry for the Week 15 challenge. I saw the bed, the skull, and the closeness of these two and boom!, what would a young, hot-to-trot Indiana Jones (channeling Austin Powers) say? Really, I expect all the reponses to be like this, it's SO obvious.

Also, I don't consider dialogue a strong point. I don't do much fiction writing and it seems that's the real place to work out convincing dialogue. Instead, you get me working it out in 33 words. Comments appreciated, folks. As well as reminiscing about how hot Harrison Ford is as Indy.
