365 Project - Day 36 - "Lost In a Sea of Bubbles"



February 05, 2010 - "Lost in a Sea of Bubbles"

I'm in a bar in Stamford... celebrating my Sis' 40th Birthday.

Good conversation...

Family...

Friends...

Food...

A few games of pool...

Good music...

Guinness and Sam Adams...

Watching hot women play pool...

More Guinness and Sam Adams...

Did I mention the women playing pool?

More music...

More Guinness (I'm done with the Sam Adams)...

A barfly in her 50s... bleach-blonde mullet hair... overly tanned skin... tight gray jeans... boots... a low-cut shirt... lots of silver jewelry... a smoker's voice - taps me on the shoulder and asks me to dance. I politely say "Thank you... but no".

I laugh it off... and go back to the pool room. The barfly soon follows and corners me again... slurring her words... asking me to go to the band and dedicate "Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton to her. My wife and everyone else stands laughing as this woman hits on me.

And I ask myself: How the hell did I get to THIS point!?!

It doesn't seem THAT long ago that I'd have younger... much, much more attractive girls (and sometimes boys) hitting on me every time I'd go to a bar. But now it's this, is it?

Finish my Guinness... say our goodbyes... and head home.

A wonderful night of celebration... and realizations...

Life is good!
