Whenever Another Guy

PAYS FOR A NIGHT OUT

I Feel Weird … 

Not Twitchy Weird.  Just Regular Weird.  Because I’m Probably Weird.

Like Last Night.  For Instance …

“When We Were Bromancing It Up.”

 

SURE, THERE WAS BUSINESS SMALL TALK

For A Solid 4 Minutes …  

On The Drive To Dinner – Toronto Traffic Is Just The Best Thing Ever – An Hour To Drive 8 Miles Downtown.

While Noshing – On Delicious Apps – And, Does A Decent Steak Really Need To Cost $68 … For 8 oz?

During The Game –  Two Guys Never Shutting Up.

 

FUN FACT CONFESSION

Sorry, Yakky Cathy – Sitting-Next-To-Me – For Brushing Elbows Twice.

“Now, Don’t Cha Wish Your Boyfriend Was Hot Like Me?”

I wanted to say, but didn’t because her Boyfriend/First Date/Guy-From-The-Office/Friend-Zoner/Someone’s Cousin buying Cathy the $16 Heinekens looked just enough to be her brother.  Now, that’s Weird.  Creepy Weird.

Honestly, Match.com if you’re responsible for this mash up, please recalibrate your Hook-Up Algorithms if you want my business.  Because Siblings Shouldn’t Date!

 

THEN AGAIN

I Was The Guest … 

I’ve been rolling lots of new business my host’s way.  His company has earned it.  The Old Fashioned Way.  Also, I deplore Whorish Nepotism.  I’m All About Meritocracy … And, Free Lunches.

Let’s Call It A Customer Appreciation Thing.  Relationship/Rapport Building.  If Anyone Asks.  And, If There’s An Audit.

Plus, I’m Wonderful Company.  What It Says on My Wikipedia Page.  So, there’s that I’m contributing.

Also, I’m Quite Sure I’ve Never Said No To Good Seats At A Basketball Game … 

 

HOW’D IT GO?

Splendid … As In Well, Wasn’t That Fun For A Monday Night.

Great Conversation.  It Flowed.  And, It Showed.

Some Laughs.  Sh!ts & Giggles.  I was Giggles.

You Know … Fun Memories & Such.

 

THE BIG UH-OH

And, Then … There Was A Moment When The Server … Mixed Up Our Drink Orders.

Could You Just Imagine The Horror … The Indignity:

“When I Was Given A Tonic Water Instead of A Soda Water?”

I’ll Be Dealing With It All Day.  Gabbing To Everyone That Moseys In Front Of My Happy Place Today.  Or, They Can Just Read About It Here.

 

THE LEMON NOT THE LIME

Was A Dead Giveaway … 

“I’m Never Going Back There Again.”

Unless I’m Invited ®.

And, I Offer To Pay …

 

POST SCRIPT

Raptors Won … Its What They Do Whenever I Show Up.

Which Is More Than I Can Say For Drake – Yes, We’re Neighbors – Please, Don’t Make A Big Thing About It … So, Are 6 Million-ish Other Torontonians …

And, Because Drizzy Didn’t Come To The Game Last Night (He Gave Up His Gucci Seats To Some Other Way Too Rich Guy).

… I Got All The Attention.
