Men II Boyz

Conversation with my barista this morning (he kills me; he's also in a band whose name escapes me, but it's like "The Throw-Ups" or something):

He: Went to a bachelor party last night.

Me: Oh, yeah? [Note sparkling banter on my part throughout.]

He: Yeah. Bunch of guys sitting around watching porn. So me and my buddy left to go to the Lusty Lady. We were like, "Come on, let's go see real girls!"

Me: Oh, yeah? [Yes. I am The Man.]

He: Yeah! Sticky floors, man. [This isn't really what I want to hear from the guy making my coffee.]

Me: I've never been to the Lusty Lady.

He: You've only got six months, man.

Me: Oh, yeah? [I hate me.]

He: Yeah. The one in San Francisco is already down, and I guess they're losing their lease here too.

Me: Oh, wow. I, uh, I guess I should go soon.

He: You've got to, man! [He gives me my coffee, and I turn to go.]

Me: Maybe I will.

He: Sticky floors, man!

Me: Yeah. [And at this point, for no coherent reason, I raise my fist in a kind of Black Panther/solidarity gesture. Right: We straight white males have to stick together for porn! As I exit the door, I hear again:]


So basically my life is a Noel Coward play rewritten by Larry Flynt.

It's really less Noel Coward-ly and more Aaron Sorkin-y.

Yeah, I don't know where the Noel Coward comment came in.

I'd really rather be drinking right now, I confess.

Sticky floors in a strip joint? Kinda puts "being glued to the edge of your seat" in a whoooole new light.

No, no, no... you've got it all wrong.

The name of his band was Sticky Floors, and the strip joint made him throw up. Biiiiiiiiiig difference.

That's why it's never wise to talk to people before the first cup of coffee...

He didn't, ummm, touch your coffee or anything, did he?
