Walking to my car 4:00am mountain time. The morning dark, streets empty, still, bitter cold and windy. I constantly look over my shoulder flustered, hung over! Thoughts of being kidnapped, raped, beaten, roams my mind. My car is 500 feet away. In the car, I reminisce.
We’re both on vigorous marketing, blogging, single parent hours but tonight we found time to relax and catch up. I love this guy! But, dating is not an option. Instead we laugh, drink, reminisce and tell all. The night great, filled with awesome! 2 friends chit chatting about projects, life. We’re drinking beer, wine, eating chicken fettucini alfredo, while going through pictures of his beautiful Alaska getaway. My appetite now intrigued for a taste of Alaska. It’s beautiful! The glaciers, city and bar sights.
After climaxing in conversation and laughs. We hit our tired peak! I wondered: “Did I actually drink 1/2 a bottle of JLohr red wine?” Normally I’m a slow paced granny drinker, but whenever he’s around. I pound it like a marathon runner! Stride after stride, sip after sip until the finish line, an empty bottle.
As we lay in the bed, I feel the itch to cuddle. I fight the urge, bite my tongue. Unfortunately “liquid angel,” red wine says: “I want to cuddle.” He replies, ” This side feels good right now, but in the middle of the night, I may roll over. You can cuddle me if you’d like.” I state, “A man is suppose to initiate the cuddle. I dont want to seem over agressive. This is why I shouldnt drink.” He replies “What?” I said, “I shouldnt drink! It’s easier to detach emotions.” In that moment I fell into a cement sleep state. My body sunk into the bed like a ton of bricks! At about 3:45am my alram goes off! My head spinning, I gather my things, head for the door.
It was short, sweet, awesome, fun! I appreciate every, smile, laugh, touch and drink. The moments we share, invigorating, filled with passion. That’s what friends are for.
