I am so tired of meeting great women who live fucking a zillion miles away. WTF? Why can’t I get lucky enough to find a decent woman who would be interested in me here in southern Maine? Where the hell are they all anyway? In the south or south-west from what I am noticing. All the more reason to really consider the wintering at the compound in Austin that much more in my book. smh…whatever.
I went out today, had to go to the grocery store first…and the fact that I got a haircut over the weekend must have contributed to the fact that everyone who excused themselves to get by me, or who knocked into me (yeah it’s a busy store) said the same thing, “sorry, sir.” To which I chuckled, smiled and said sure. I don’t think any one of them knew; yeah I’m just that fucking Butch. Sure, secretly I covet the fact I can pass easily on most days. Until they notice the lack of facial hair, or that I am not that big of a guy.
Even at the basin, where I took Nola to run and play along the Piscataqua River, a beautiful tidal river, strongest current on the east coast even, a woman with a puppy that Nola was barking at sweetly told Nola that “daddy is calling you, Nola”. She obviously got the dog’s name from hearing me threaten to kill it in public if she didn’t stop her stupid barking. I stood and had a conversation with the woman, I could see the realization come to her face after a brief exchange, and she got extra nice. Telling me to come down more often, that she was often there with her dog. Straight girl wants to play.
Another of my strange attractions; straight chicks, they love me; orbiting like fucking moons to planets. In my younger days I took full advantage of this, you can bet your sweet ass. Straight bartenders were a particular delicacy, and some very hot ones at that. More than one night I drank for free, fucked til dawn, kissed her on the cheek and sent her home to hubby. Today, I am a bit older, and far smarter than to get involved in that scene again. But damn it was some fun times back then. Today I smile, maybe wink at them to get the thought entrenched a bit deeper in her brain, just for fun and cuz I am like that…yeah, the old “think about it like that” wink, and move on my way, I’m bad, I know.
Downtown, having coffee and trying to make Nola act like she was a normal dog – I know, a bit much to ask, but I did try – even had it’s interesting moments. A transwoman passed me and I got the all knowing “look”…which I exchanged with a tiny bit of glee. I love this place. Downtown today reminded me how sweet it is in the summer; the diversity of people, all kinds, types, sizes, and looks. There was a young fellow playing flute on the corner near the Atheaum, and tons of people milling about the outdoor cafe where I got coffee. Nola only barked at one other dog, then seemed to “get it” for a minute that there are other dogs and none of them are barking. I happily sat in the square and listened to all the chatter, until a guy on a bicycle stopped and asked me “you got the time, dude?” I looked across the street at the big fucking clock on the church steeple, “Yeah, 12:30, dude“. On the way back to my truck a very attractive Asian woman stopped short to let Nola and I pass, I could feel her eyes on me checking me out up and down, and I knew she couldn’t figure me out at first…yup, some people just don’t get me. I understand; and I am fine with it. The “world” doesn’t have to get me, just those I care about the most. I’m good with that.
