Tonight's Plans and Boy Toy Update

Beaumont has done it to me again. Lately, there's so much good music playing around here, I'm forced to choose between equally good entertainment options. Tonight, Earl Thomas Conley at Wild Bill's trumps Wayne Toups and the Cam Pyle Band out at Crockett Street. Sorry, Cam. See you next month.

I sure hope Bonnie doesn't win any tickets again tonight forcing me to seduce another 30 year old guy. Of course, I'm willing to make that sacrifice for my little sister...because it worked out so well last time. I've had a couple of comments and e-mails asking me if the guy ever called so I'll share what happened if anyone is still curious.

He did call at 5:30 p.m. but I had called t.o.d. (time of death) on the date at 4:00 p.m. At 4:00 p.m., I had two options. I could either shower and get ready for the concert or get comfortable. I chose to get comfortable. There is nothing worse than getting all dressed and poufed and perfumed and just sitting and waiting.

When he called at 5:30 p.m., I told him I had been outside all day (partially true) and that since I hadn't heard from him, I assumed he had changed his mind. I fully expected him to say, "Okay, no problem." I wasn't upset at all and I thought he probably already had someone lined up for the other ticket. However, he seemed totally shocked. He didn't say a word for a while then he said, "I lost your number and just found it." I said I was sorry again and he just sat there. It was horrible. I felt (and still feel) kind of bad about it. I sure hope he went to the concert.

I need to get me some Texas. And a boy toy. No actually, the last time I had one of those I married him. I'll just take TExas.

F*** him, Laurie. And I don't mean literally. There are plenty of older, wiser men who are more worthy of your brains, charm, wit, and not to mention fabulous good looks. You want me to hook you up, Laurie? OK, here is my best shot:

HEY ALL YOU ELIGIBLE BACHELORS OUT THERE: Laurie is quite a catch, and if you don't step up and "seize the day" (trite, I know, but bare with me), someone is going to beat you to it. And for what? Some piece of tail that may or may not be as funny, intelligent or attractive as our Laurie? Please... spare me. Go for it already.

I hope (or maybe you should) tell him about your blog. One way your safe the other way, well, that could get interesting too.

I hear ya, Jen T! Laurie is the funniest person I know! You guys are missing out on someone wonderful if you don't make your move :)

Laurie said...

Lorna - We will definitely have to drag you down to Texas sometime, or at least New Orleans!

Jen and Fav File Clerk - I am speechless. You guys are the best. I'll let you know if your rave reviews generate any interest. I would do the same for you guys on your blogs (create another one Fav) but you ladies already have men falling at your feet.

Zina - We never exchanged last names so, unless he stumbles in here accidentally, (stranger things have happened), we may never know.
