How to have an adventure. Part 6
1. Conversations with drunk people
are finite, you’ve covered this topic
twice already, but they’re still banging it
from a different angle .
2. You say “see you later”
with a hug, because bowing out
gracefully has its advantages
in a place like this.
3. You see him standing by himself
he has that indefinable look about him
you don’t know what it is exactly
but you have the overwhelming need
to hit him up for a conversation.
4. You tell him so.
You’re too exhausted
You tell him the standard.
You’ve been to a concert.
He asks what kind and it turns out
you have the exact same taste
5. You talk about punk, rock
metal and grunge.
You don’t know who his favourite band is
he discovered them when he was over in England
though you’re favourite band of all time
hails from the same part of the world.
6. Your conversation gets interrupted
when he gets hit up by a professional dancer
and queen who he’s only met once.
Your new friend reacts
to the come on with sarcasm
and you laugh at the lose-lose banter
He’s not going home with this one
and you’re both relieved when
Mr High-Maintenance wonders off
before your conversation is again
this time by his friends.
