A friend of mine decided to play at Amateur Night at Haad Thai bar. I got there early (cause I live nearby) and signed him up to take part in it.
I sat at the bar, waiting for my buddies to come (something I haven’t done in over a year). I guess the moral of this story is if you want to be picked up at a bar you need to be sitting in a bar :) .
Back to the story, I sat a few seats away from the lovely Miss M (well I really wasn’t interested in trying to pick her up (something about the one who makes me loose my savoir fair :) ).
She picks up a conversation by asking me if I’m planning on performing. I make a joke about how they don’t want the entire bar to be emptied. We talk about different musicians etc. and she let it slip that she has a boy friend (all good I’m not exactly interested (not that she isn’t cute and a few years back definately my type).
My friends came in, my buddy D starts hitting on her, she mentions the boyfriend a few more times, he asks her to join our table (she declines). I stick around a bit, and I guess she has to point out how she isn’t interested in D by opening with, is he Gay. I go “no, actually for someone that’s 20 years older he does better with women than I do.” she laughs, we talk some more and she walks over to the table with me. I guess something she heard from the table didn’t jive with her so she heads off (no worries, remember she has a boy friend).
Turns out she didn’t leave. I went back to the bar to get another drink and she was standing there (waiting ? ). I go over to talk to her again and she comes to our table (hey JG needed more people cheering for him while he sang :) ).
I must have had too much to drink cause I break a glass by holding it too tight (but I guess I saved that well, cause she didn’t seem to mind too much). I realized had too much to drink and I did have another social commitment (had to make it up to a friend, who was offended I left early on Friday (had something to do with that nerdy thing I do) She invited us to dinner and I was already late for that. I offered to walk Miss M home (hey I’m still a good guy).
We walk and talk and she gets touchy feely :). We get to her place and she says I have to give you my number, I give her my phone ask her to call herself from it. She does and then she says “call me tonight my boyfriend isn’t in” then she kisses me on the lips (great kiss).
Now here’s my delemna, I know I can call her as soon as she gets in say something like, well I missed you so much I couldn’t wait :). Or I could call her an hour or so later (only problem with that is well my friends place is 20 minutes from Haad Thai (not to mention the walk back to the car) and it would take me 20 minutes to come back. She was upset that I keep leaving when ever she gets there so I couldn’t quite go and put in 20 minutes for Dinner, so I decided I should be a friend first…
Still I enjoyed being picked up at a bar, just not sure this is my style (I’m 31 now, the 20 year old would have enjoyed this but I’ve grown up ;) ).
