New York City: Friendship Comets Colliding
New York City: Friendship Comets Colliding.
Not a lot of things in life feel as cool as having people from different waves of your life meet, hit it off and bond like old friends themselves. In the dictionary it is one of the four definitions for the word ‘Awesomeness.’ It is in those moments when you find your friendship comets colliding!
Irmante and I got out of the house late and went to the High Line, a park in New York City that is built on an old disused railroad track. I walked Irmante to work, was kissed by the brunette bartenderess who told me she loved me two nights ago and then headed to Dylan’s Candy Bar to have a Rootbeertini, a root beer martini with a scoop of ice cream on top. Then the highlight of the day….
Brendan and Mary met with me at Penn Station. Those are two incredible humans that I can not see enough. We went to a convenience store and bought a bottle of wine. Then the game was to find a creative drinking cup apparatus so that we could enjoy the wine illegally in the streets. Mary found a wacky purple cup and I used a chip bag and a straw. It was a battle to get the wine bottle open on a park bench. I saw a video on Youtube a couple of months back where a guy shows viewers how to get a bottle of wine opened when you do not have a cork-screw. In the video he takes his shoe off, puts the base of the bottle on shoe where the heel would normally rest, and bangs the bottle in the heel of the shoe vertically against a hard surface and it wiggles the cork out after hits. Well, I found out that this technique is bullshit. We eventually just had to force the cork inside the bottle with keys and a pen so that we could drink our wine from a silly cup and chip bag on a walk through Central Park.
The three of us walked to Irmante’s restaurant for dinner. I was kissed several times by the beautiful brunette bartenderess who asked me when I was leaving and was hugging me telling me not to leave her. That felt nice. A gorgeous host in the restaurant sat us and I later found out that she was made in a test tube. I have never known of a test tube baby before, and I can confirm that based on my one for one average that a test tube baby comes out as very very pretty creature. I would be happy to be in a fling with the test tube baby I met.
Brendan, Mary and I ate dinner, Irmante finished work and then we went to an Irish pub close to her house. She was telling me that it was obvious that I had been drinking wine because it was giving me the crazy eyes that beer does not. I looked like trouble. The four of us sat and visited for a couple of hours, and laughed a lot. It was just a very special night to be with three people who know me so well from very different parts of my life and those three people became friends. Life just feels so awesome and exceptional some days, and most especially when you find your friendship comets colliding. I loved my crew of people tonight so very much. Good friends are so important in life…
These are some very excellent notable quotes from the evening…
“She’s had 80 fingers inside of her.” – Brendan in reference to the Oct0mom.
“I walk into a party, I tell funny stories and then I use the c-word, just so that they know I am legit!” – Mary
“The first time for me was nothing like in the movies where it is over in just a few seconds. I lasted the whole first half of my cassette of Nirvana’s Unplugged.” – Brendan
