The sun was so bright in the sky that he could hardly see anything at all. There was so much commotion that Randy didn’t know what to think. Machine guns were firing at the top of the Empire State Building as a squadron of Curtiss Helldivers let loose their ammunition on the giant gorilla that had scaled the landmark skyscraper with a young blond who he had taken hostage.
All Randy knew was that he wanted to help her, and so he did when the mortally wounded King Kong lost his grip and dropped Ann Darrow from way on high to the avenue below. It was Randy who caught her in his thick, burly arms. The crowd went wild at his incredible act of heroism, but they soon had to scatter as the fallen hairy giant was accelerating at the speed of gravity right towards them.
Randy tossed the damsel over his shoulder and took off at full speed down Fifth Avenue wearing only a pair of white cotton briefs, his cowboy boots, and his beige 10-gallon hat. Moments later the giant gorilla hit the ground creating an impact crater. Randy had not had time to check on Ann until now. He laid the unconscious beauty on the ground and propped her up as he fanned her with his hat. Randy was from Texas. He was in town for an event at Madison Square Garden. Oddly enough he couldn’t even recall why he was in New York City at all.
“Ann, Ann are you okay honey?” The muscularly built and well-groomed bearded man questioned the passed out beauty in his distinctly Texan accent.
“Where am I?” The young woman groggily responded as she came to.
You’re with me.
Oh, I recognize you. You're Randy Big Tex Morris.
“I am? - Yeah, that’s right. - I am him, ain’t I?” Randy replied to Ann not wanting to tip off that he really didn’t know who he was.
You saved me back there. I don’t know how to thank you enough.
Well, Ann, we can discuss all of that on our first date. I can’t hardly wait to spoil you rotten you pretty thing you.
My name is Faye, not Ann. Remember, we went over that?
Just then Randy’s mother approached the couple from across the street. Suddenly Randy was transformed into a five-year-old version of himself, although he was still barely dressed, wearing the same outfit. The little boy remained silent, as his mother addressed the now fully recovered blond.
Please excuse us Ann. Randy come on now son. We gotta be gett’in back to what you was do’in.
Mrs. Morris, I told Tex to tell you that my name is not Ann, it’s Faye. Ann Darrow was the character's name in the movie “King Kong.” I’m just Faye. Faye just like the actress that played the part of Ann Darrow in the movie. Do you get it?
That’s fine darl’in. I’ll see you at the wedd’in sweetheart.
The next thing Randy knew he was back home in Tyler, Texas in Ms. Humphrey’s preschool learning to count.
Ms. Humphrey was counting out loud slowly and deliberately, “One, two, three, …”
Then suddenly Randy was big again, and a bright light began shining in his face. It was so bright that it was hurting Randy’s eyes. Ms. Humphrey disappeared into the intense glowing light.
Although he wanted to shield his eyes from the glare, he couldn’t move his arms. Randy looked to his left, and there was his mother crying in a sea of rowdy strangers. He then turned to his right, and he noticed Faye. She was dressed in a skimpy white bikini and holding a huge black card to her well endowed bosom. On the card was printed a large white number eight. In her left hand, she was holding what appeared to be a silver colored iPhone. Faye had a shocked expression on her face.
Randy Big Tex Morris was the top ranked contender for the heavyweight title. He had been ahead in tonight’s main event, a fight for the very title he had wanted for so long. His dreams of wealth and fame were now within reach. Randy could taste victory.
It wasn’t until he saw Faye, the dazzling blond card girl from Cincinnati, that he began to lose his focus. Randy had always been a sucker for a beautiful blond. As the seventh round ended and Faye entered the ring to announce the start of round eight, Randy Tex Morris did a double take. He was stunned by her beauty. It was love at first sight. Although Randy was winded, he was determined not to let Faye get away.
Quickly spitting out his mouthpiece, the boxer said to, his cornerman, Evans “Hey, Evans let me get your phone right quick.”
Smooth and fast Randy had Evans hand his phone to Faye as she walked by his corner. “I’d love to take you to dinner tomorrow night if your boyfriend don’t mind,” Randy uttered in his most folksy Texas drawl.
The surprisingly bashful, half-clad card girl in high heels coyly accepted the phone from, Evans.
“But I don’t have a boyfriend.” Faye said smiling back at Randy flirtatiously as she winked her right eye and proceeded to walk on.
“What’s your name. I’ll be calling you soon Darl'in. The code to unlock that phone is 1234.” The smitten pugilist quickly shouted to the blond bombshell. Faye cheerfully nodded her head then turned away and re-raised the sign as high as she could above her head announcing the upcoming eighth round while holding Evan's phone in her left hand.
“My Name is Faye.” She turned back and shouted loud enough to be heard over the commotion in the arena while walking backward and nearly tripping over her stilettos.
“Is that Faye as in Faye Ray from the movie "King Kong"?” Randy asked in his loudest non-yelling voice. The statuesque blond could hardly hear him. Madison Square Garden was packed with 16,000 noisy spectators.
Lowering her card Faye turned and shouted back “That was Ann Darrow, played by Faye Wray.” She pointed to herself with her index finger as she repeated her name “Faye” before climbing down from the ring.
The cornerman was flabbergasted. “What did you just do with my phone Tex?”
Don’t you worry Evans. I’ll have it back to you by this same time tomorrow, or I’ll buy you two more just like it. Besides, I use it more than you do anyways!
Randy was so pleased with himself that he barely reacted when the bell rang. As he adjusted his mouthpiece against the thumb of his right glove, he turned to face his opponent. Expecting to meet him in the middle of the ring.
Randy was surprised immediately by Killer Kong Jackson’s arching right jab. The defending champion had caught him off guard the moment he turned from his corner. Jackson walloped Randy with so much force that everyone in the entire arena could hear and feel the blow as it landed. Randy Big Tex Morris had just been knocked into a different reality. The fight was over at the count of ten.
