His opening line was “Hi, I’m Alex. Ya know, I’m getting older and I’m not like I used to be – I’m taking Cialis and I also use a testosterone cream.”
I’m so happy my friend was there to witness this drunken spectacle because otherwise she would never have believed this.
About 13 of us were in a hot tub in the “Adult Pool” area – which, by the way, is NOT like the “Adult Pools” in Vegas (my bad) – he was standing before us in waist deep water bare-chested, and he had no trouble mentioning this as the very first thing he wanted us to know about him.
I am not speechless very often. In fact, I find pleasure in throwing the curve ball or broaching a topic with other people that makes THEM speechless. But my friend was more shocked than I and I knew if I didn’t say something, it would get even more awkward.
He was drunk and I was a little more than tipsy so I just asked him outright “OK. How’s that workin for ya?”
I was sincere, of course, I was curious as to if the Cialis/hormone cream was working for him because obviously, that pick-up line was his go-to for a reason. I mean, he announced it with such confidence and swagger.
In the end, his gamble at showing his vulnerable side up front didn’t pan out for him with us. But, he did give me an experience and a memory that I will never forget.
