il Postino di Parigi

It's been a lovely day.  Sunshine, blue skies and shoe shopping.  

I shopped the Marais.  I shopped the BHV.  I looked in at the Pompidou centre.  I ate a hangover reducing lunch.  I sat in the park at the Place des Vosges and soaked up some sun.

Walking home, there was a fool on rollerblades heading towards me. 

Zigzagging in and out, generally causing mayhem, he was oblivious to the fact that everyone on the street was watching his moves.  And boy did he have some moves.  

After showing off to the crowd for a while longer, he started to hurtle towards me, doing that backwards skating thing that they do.  As he came within a couple of feet of me, he stoppped suddenly.

He turned as he stopped and leant in to kiss me.

"Ca va mieux ce matin?" he said.  It was the Italian postman.  The guy who I'd had a thing with a while back.  The guy who, not 12 hours ago, had been lying next to me in bed trying to find the strength to get up, get out and go home.

"Not bad", said I, fully aware that everyone was watching.  My hangover had lifted, but I was still hiding behind my big sunglasses.

"See you tonight" he said.  He kissed me again and skated off through a quickly parting crowd towards Bastille.

"Erm, maybe..." I said, to no-one in particular.

How do I get out of that?

Do I want to get out of that?

Poser, they are two different people - skater boy and rollerblade boy (aka il postino, the postman, the italian...). I know, I'm also confused....

And yes, I bought shoes. Lovely Camper shoes. Too expensive, but hey...

Poser, well this is how it is. Thursday night was the Skater Boy (see you later boy). Friday night was the rollerblade boy (also known as il postino because he's an italian postman).

I think what is possibly confusing you is the general sluttiness of this behaviour. For that I can only apologise. hehe

Pure Poser a dit…

Na don't apologise. Live life cos it's short. (Good excuse to shag around I'd say. ;D)

It makes more sense now. Ta darlin.

I woke up after a big night a while ago and said "I had the stangest dream that I found roller blades on my way home from the pub last night". Then I saw the bruises all over me and the roller blades on the floor and remembered roller blading around the lounge room. I am not a very good roller blader. Although to be fair, I haven't tried it when not completely sozzled so I might be excellent when sober.

You shouldn't want to get out of that! You said it yourself, he's got moves! ;)

12oti - you worry me. sometimes. But you also make me laugh. So that's a good thing...

Marjolein, I gave in and saw him again. he's got some moves, it's true!
