Don't rain on my parade

I'm stood at the edge of the dancefloor last night, taking a wee break from dancing myself dizzy, when this guy comes over to talk to me.

He'd been smiling at me while dancing, so I kind of figured that if I stopped he'd soon follow.  Not that that's why I stopped dancing - nothing so planned chez me after a beer or two.  I'd stopped because there's only so much Katie Perry a boy can dance to in a lifetime and I think I reached my limit.

So he introduces himself and we head to the bar to get a drink.  He buys me a beer and we chat.  Seems we both do similar(ish) jobs and we both live in the same neighbourhood.  Both of us are fairly new to the area, and so we spent a whole load of time chatting about the best places to buy vegetables, and so on.

He was charming, interesting and attractive.

He touched my arm a lot as he spoke, and gave off very flirty vibes.  I can't say that I was innocent either - I was more than happy to flirt along with this local lovely.  

I had visions of us skiping off to the marché d'Aligré on a Sunday morning together, doing the rounds of the stalls and going home to settle in to good food and a movie.

In my mind I was thinking 'this is good, this could be great'.

He leaned in to say something.  I didn't hear him.

"What did you say?" said I.

"I want to take you back to mine", he said.

"Oh, really?" said I, giving a very cheeky grin.

"I want you to piss on me", he said.

Jesus wept.

"Yeah, well, good luck with that" I said, as I turned and headed back to the safety of Katie Perry and her chums.

Is it too much to ask for someone to just say "I like you - can we go out for a drink sometime?"

I mean, REALLY?

Visions of you in a white gown just flew out of the window with that one.

Where - dear heart - do you find them. And did someone pin a sign on your forehead and you havne't noticed?

Lewis, he's all yours sweetie. All yours...

Rob - I agree

Torny, I guess so - but it's maybe not a great way to get someone back to the house....

oh lord!

Oh Lord indeed. Alan, it's truly truly been a ridiculous weekend. And its not over yet....

wontletlifedefineme a dit…

It is too much. Recent encounters between friends of mine and suitors have included conversations such as 'fuck me (said suitor)' 'no (said friend)' 'whore!'... See what I mean?

Anthony a dit…

Baby cheeses! I'm lost for words ... which is very strange for me, indeed ....

Marjolein, the world is full of people with, erm, challenging ideas..

LaTanya, for once I have managed to shut you up. Lord. Mark this day in my diary....

He wanted you to piss on him? Hmm. If that was the cme on line, imagine where it could have ended up. Perhaps you've been hanging out in the wrong places.

Louise a dit…

Was he from Brittany?

And I guess it's better he was so blunt than not telling you before you got there. Surprises, like HSS are not always nice.

12oti - I think maybe I have. I can only imagine what would have been waiting for me had I gone back to his...

Louise, surprises are never good. Ever. I like to know what I'm getting well in advance!

Daryl a dit…

I am SO laughing .. you must look at it this way ... he was very, erm, upfront about it ...

travelling, but not in love a dit…

D, oh yeah, boy knows how to ask for what he wants....

cb a dit…

At the very least he didn't invite you to make a german sheisse video...

travelling, but not in love a dit…

CB - that would be too, too nasty. Not nice. Go wash your mouth out!
