Yet Another Fish Story
It seems that one of our friends has been shot with one of Cupid's arrows. I have to shamefully admit I was conspiring with a yenta just recently and I had to place a call before we could proceed. I think me and my yenta are too late, but I had to make sure.
Do you remember when you realized that you were hooked? Do you remember the conversations? You remember the warning signs, don't you? The conversations about family and friends. The little suprizes, the sex etc. I remember all of that from my point of view because I was there with me.
Every so often I like to hear the story from Allyson's point of view just to spice things up and ad a little flair, you know.
Usually when I ask her she just laughs at me. Maybe it's my presentation. I'll work on that.
Here's the thing, every once in a while when I least expect it Allyson will give me one piece of her vision of our story. It blows me away every time. It's kind of like the movie Big Fish, when Ewing McGregor is working at the circus for free to find out information about the woman his character marries. He has to do everything from cleaning up elephant shit to being shot out of cannon for one piece of information once a month. One of the best pieces Allyson dropped on me, she told me she had a dream. She told me about her dream almost a year after she had it. The woman is just full of suprises.
One day I'm going to pump all of you for your stories. I like stories. "I like the Wizard of Ozz, I like the Tin Man". (Sorry about that, I just can't help myself). Maybe it will be over a camp fire and we will all be drunk. Maybe you will post about it on this here blog. I don't know how or when but you will tell me, all of you. Besides I need the information for my upcoming epic: The Born Again Human.
In any case I wish my friend nothing but the best. Out of all of us he might deserve it the most. Just remember Aquaman I'm wearing a tux at your wedding, fuck Chet and all those other minnows. Just kidding Chet. Maybe I'm jumping the gun here, after all they have only been on three dates.
