"REAL" men...

My family and friends thought I was spending way too much time on the computer.  They thought I should "get out more and talk to real, LIVE, men.  In person."  "Have fun", they said.  A few of my friends talked me into going to a local nightclub for 'Ladies' Night'.  Not a bad idea.  If no one offered to buy me a drink...  it would only cost me a buck to buy one for myself.  I was surrounded by hundreds of singles even more desperate than me.  Well, maybe not hundreds.  There was a senior citizen type soaking his dentures in a glass on the bar smiling at me.  A creepy, much younger guy wearing a John Travolta suit and a pair of old sneakers trying to make eye contact.  At least on the computer you can just sign off.  How I missed my mouse!  Direct eye contact with any strange man in a place like this could be easily misinterpreted as ... "I'm not only available, I may possibly even go home with you".  So many messages... without saying a word.  It reminded me of being ... married.  So after two hours, a few forays onto the dance floor and 10 watered down, one-dollar Rum and Cokes; I had had just about all the fun I could take for one night.  Walking back to my car I silently tallied up my... scorecard.  The senior citizen from the bar wearing Depends, the mental patient with stalker potential, and a woman that I met in the Ladies Room, who was dressed like a man.  Not bad for my first night out.  I hoped I didn't miss anything good on TV.

Ten rum and cokes? Hell, even I'd look good after that much booze.

Oh yeah. Really makes me miss The Bar Scene.

But we've got to have experiences like this every once in a while, just so we can laugh ourselves to jelly later. And to think about the possibilities . . . the what if's . . . had we taken anyone up on his or her offer.

LOL!
