Sherlock is wrapping up the term.
So I went out with this minister last night. Seems like an okay guy, socially liberal, Biblically interpretive, and taller than me. He talks pretty much continuously about how hard it is to be a minister and the hateful things church ladies do. Me, I’m thinking therapy would be a good thing for him.
We enjoy the movie and he suggests dropping by his house for a drink before taking me home. Here’s where my naivete becomes apparent. No sooner do we get inside, than he suddenly tries to grope me. I am very firm about this misbehavior.
He tries to explain himself. Most women are not as accomplished as I am. He knows he couldn’t do this with them, because they would probably fall in love with him or some such thing. But me, I can surely appreciate “playing” with him.
I look him in the eye and ask if he’s suggesting that we be “friends with benefits.”
That is, he says, exactly what he had in mind.
Three minutes later he is driving me home, having been enlightened.
Now, to fully appreciate the oddity of all of this, he is a 62 y/o well-known minister in our area. And in case anyone thinks I might have lead him on…..I’m dressed in cords, a turtleneck, boots, and a heavy coat. I’m certainly not hanging it out for him to grab.
What are men thinking????!!!!
