Ok..I'm gonna go out on a limb here...(and I'm not even a squirrel.. )
Here's the scenario:
So she bought some wine, lite some candles and placed a fur rug in front of the fire place.
Lights turned off....dark in the room except for the glow from the lit candles and the fire in the fireplace.
she quickly stripped down and laid out for him.
dark colored fur rug, lights off, only dim light from candles and fireplace...maybe she laid out spread eagle
She replied, I'm down here.
He looked down, and shouted I almost fell into the same hole you did.
He looks around, then down at the "hole" on the floor..............
get it yet?
