I had a date last week with a nice gentleman.
He played guitar for me and let me sing.
I’ll tell you one thing, it is NOT EASY to sing JANIS JOPLIN.
Not at all.
It’s easier to sing HOTEL CALIFORNIA but of course, the lyrics are hard to remember.
We started out with dinner at a Burmese restaurant.
It was quite tasty AND spicy!
Who knew I’d have a thing for coconut rice and tea leaf salad, including jalapeños!?
Just wash it all down with a Burmese beer and you’re good to go, you know?
Then he invited me to his place.
Since we’d already had the “I’m on 90 days of abstinence” conversation, I agreed.
Like I said, he was a kind, respectful gentleman and I trusted him.
We had fun drinking beer, talking about his travels, and playing music.
I sang Pat Benatar’s “We Belong.”
He played “Under Pressure” by Queen, which is a remarkably repetitive song, by the way.
In the end, I went home with barely a kiss on my lips, but a smile on my face.
He invited me on a trip to India with him.
Of course, if I go anywhere this holiday season, I’ll be going to Stockholm, not India.
But I appreciated the invitation!
