He said what?!

August 22, 2008

I met Flares on Facebook. I randomly added him and then it turned out that we had so many connections it was a wonder we didn’t already know each other. So after a few very sporadic emails, he asked me to have a drink with him. I was anxious about it but agreed to meet him at a bar by my office on a Wednesday night.

The evening was turning out well. We got chatted away, eating and drinking for quite a few hours. Early on, he tried to switch from cocktails to beer but having just come from Vegas, I immediately started making fun of him and calling him various female accessories. So he switched to wine instead. (Yeah, yeah, like that’s better). At the end of the night, we were walking toward the cab stand and it was obvious Flares was drunk. He leaned over and said, “I’m coming home with you tonight.” I told him he wasn’t and he proceeded to try to convince me otherwise. We went back and forth for a bit when he decided to say, “I swear I have a big penis” and grabbed himself. I immediately shoved him in a cab and sent him on his way.

On the way home, he called me saying that he wanted to make sure I got home safe and to stay on the phone with him until I did so. I begrudgingly agreed and as we were chatting away, he called me Audrey. My name is absolutely nothing like Audrey. But I decided to ignore it nonetheless. Then he did it again. That’s when I hung up on him.
