Last Sunday night while sitting at the bar at Duffy’s waiting for my friend Roger and his beautiful fiance Georgina to show up a fairly attractive young Woman sits down beside me. We begin a small conversation about the Football games going on around us and she tells the bartender to go ahead and bring me another of whatever I’m having on her. Then she stands up and says check this out Man, and proceeds to tug her jeans far enough down to reveal not only a bunch of little star piercings but also the fact that she had shaved a little more than her legs that morning. When she finally pulled her jeans back up she turned to me with a smirk on her face and said … When was the last time you had somebody as young and hot as I am? Last night, was my reply!
Speaking of Roger and Georgina this was the strangest Christmas ever for me because it was the first time in my life I was going to spend it without Family or loved ones. Roger and Georgina when they heard about it were kind enough to include me in their Christmas celebration along with Georgina’s sons Guy and Luke. Roger whose Father was the Head Chef and Co-Owner of the world famous Le Cirque Restaurant in New York prepared a wonderful meal consisting of Duck as the main course and we just seemed to be eating the whole night away as he brought out course after course. Jean would have been proud. My only comment about the whole affair was … Mmmmmmmmmmm!
