So last night, I decided it was time to take my hat and strut my stuff downtown. Although I'll tell you right now that nothing happened, I did notice a few things.
First, I went to my favorite gay restaurant in downtown, because that's where I'm most comfortable. I played dress-up last night, and so I was wearing a very nice olive green shirt with a nice tie, black pants and black shoes.
As I was making my way from my car to the restaurant, I was expecting the usual: I have to pass by this place where bums always hang out, and they always ask me for money. But, as one would expect, when I was stylin' in my new hat, none of that was the case. In fact, I coulda swore I saw them be a bit intimidated. Hrm....
I got into the restaurant, ate, and the pianist played a medley from "Jesus Christ: Superstar." He knows how much I LOVE this particular medley of songs, so I made sure and gave him a couple of bucks.
After a wonderful Caeser salad and broiled halibut with cous cous, I decided it was time to leave. So I got up and left.
While I was eating dinner, I got an invitation from one of the guys in the chorus to come and watch a movie: two other people were at his house and he said that I should come over. I told him about my new hat, and he said that he wanted me to come over and show the girls. :)
When I got to his house, he complimented me on how nice I looked, and he said that my hat looked very nice on me. What surprised me more was that when I walked into the house, the one person that I thought would tease me and give me the hardest time about the hat was actually very genuinely complimentary.
After a little bit of meeting and greeting, we continued to watch "Hedwig and the Angry Inch." This isn't a blog designed to be a movie review, but I honestly didn't see what the big deal was about the movie (no pun intended). It was fairly mediocre, and the music wasn't that good. Afterwards, we listened to Beethoven's 6th symphony, and a good time was had by all.
After we were done with that, we went over to the piano and sang a little bit, and when we were done with that, the two guys left, and it was just the host and I. We sat and talked about all sorts of things for about the next hour and a half, and really had a nice time. Now just so you know, he's older than my father, so I really have no desire to sleep with him or anything like that (Jeff, are you reading this?).
We both decided we were tired, so I drove home and he stayed at his.
I went to bed, and then here we are! I've got a lunch date today, which will be nice, and then from there I go to work shortly thereafter. I should make some good money tonight, though. :-D
Ok, that's it for now. I swear, this hat's going to change my life. Indeed, it already has! As always, let's hear what you have to say (and before any of you say it, yes, I know I'm a crazy little homo for talking about a damned hat so much, but I love it anyhow. So there. ;) )
