Usually this theme manifests itself in a Margaritaville or Cheeseburger In Paradise kind of way. But last night, Why Don’t We Get Drunk And Screw took the wheel.
Aaaand…Mom, stop reading.
It’s ok, she’ll make Dad read on and give her a synopsis.
I’m hardly bragging about this feat. It’s only the second time I’ve had sex this year.
My undoing? The irresistible Wallpaper.
You can do the legwork and figure out the key to his blog name yourselves, but I will tell you that several times in the course of this year, he’s hit me up on Facebook: The Messenger and several times our conversation has turned toward last night’s activities.
The short of that is that it didn’t happen cuz we wanted different things. Him: an itch scratched, Me: something more.
Plus, we were friends. Randomly occurring friends, not close. But we’d run into each other out on the town and sass each other on The Facebook often, so I valued the current level of our friendship.
Call us life extras for each other.
So, last night, he posts on Facebook that he’s at a bar a few blocks from my house celebrating his Friday…at around 3 pm.
I sass him.
He sasses back, demanding my presence.
I capitulate – foreshadowing! – on the grounds that I’m only keeping him company until his real friends get off work. He’s a super sweet and adorable as fuck guy, I don’t need a reason to see him socially, just a circumstance.
This was it.
I get there and he’s talking to someone at the bar. I order a beer and say hi, meeting his new acquaintance Keith and then sit at a table behind them. The Wallpaper joins me a few minutes later.
We start in on easy conversation, very nice. Small talk, but it has substance.
“Oh my god!”
I look around.
Someone hugs him and says, “I can’t stay, but couldn’t leave you alone here!”
Heath, I learn. I amuse myself with the alliterative quality of his bar-quaintances.
We all talk.
They go smoke.
Five beers and four hours later, we’re at my place, Heath having made me promise not to let him drink too much and The Wallpaper telling me that he was staying over.
“Obviously”, he says. And I’m glad for his good impaired judgment.
I’d recently – couple weeks – heard of a motorcycle rider being killed on highway 30 and my mind suggests he’s been quiet on social media lately and he has a motorcycle.
The math is obvious, my inner voice suggests.
I check his Facebook page. Nothing new since the last time I called him out for drinking in my hood and not calling me.
You see how I had to go when he said “Come”?
I mean, nothing new since then except he now has a boyfriend…the guy he was drinking with last in my hood.
That explains The Facebook silence.
I never begrudge someone that. Quite the contrary, I encourage others in the pursuit of that which has eluded me.
Yet, he tells me that it just happened. He asked, The Wallpaper described his thought process as, “Well, it’s been a few years since I dated anyone…why not?” and Bob’s your uncle.
The Wallpaper isn’t getting boyfriend behaviors from this guy. He’d come to realize they hadn’t communicated in 30 hours and acknowledges that a) that doesn’t feel right; and b) he’s not upset by it.
I enjoy seeing these young people I’ve known grown into pretty good humans.
Smash cut to us not watching a movie on my couch.
I said pretty good! And I’m only human, too.
Luckily, I’m past my operational BAC and we just go to bed.
I don’t sleep, but enjoy that he cuddles into me while he does.
Three hours later, something wakes him and he ends up somehow – charming and sexy soon to be 33 year old that he is – astride my favorite person, cautioning me, “Don’t cum inside me.”
I’m debating leaving to buy a lottery ticket since somehow – gracious host that I am – I haven’t shown him where my lube is yet somehow he’s got as many inches in him as I have beers in me.
My response is to think that I’m an almost 50 year old buzzed man who was pushing rope three hours ago and now my decade-plus randomly occurring fantasy is happening.
How many times does 50 go into 33?
As many as he fucking can.
For my second sexual encounter – nope! third, I just remembered another – of the year, I’d rate us a 7.
He was a smoldering 10.
I was a 4, at best.
He rolled off of me after with a resigned, “I guess I’m single again!” to which I had no reply.
I want to give that another go. With less beer in me and less bloat on me. Maybe lightning will strike twice. I promised myself I wouldn’t play hard to get if I got another crack at this beautiful man.
Meanwhile, I slept 0 hours last night. Left work early for a movie date with The Filipina Fox, which I fell asleep during…after being awake for 29 hours, then had a big cheeseburger for dinner.
Thus restoring the order to my normal Jimmy Buffet Life.
