I had a pleasant surprise tonight after I was home. I heard a rap tap tap, at the door while I was sitting dressed very casually in my parlor. I very seldom get impromptu guest showing up. Upon answering the door it was my good neighbor who lives to the corner of my place. Bricson, who you may recall , is the guy I met during one of our huge snow storms we had last year. A straight, handsome blond, hipster, weed smoking, lumberjack, who was a transplant from Denver. When we lost power, I went out to clean the car and that's when we met. He said his place was freezing. Well, with the amount of candles I burn any given night, which looks of a seance... I told him to come over if he wanted...my bijoux apartment was warm and I have liquor!!! My other neighbor Deb said you don't even know him. I said listen, I know men, I've made them my life's work dear...I'm pretty sure he is straight. He actually showed up...and with weed! I don't normally smoke it, but I didn't want to be rude, you know, hostess and all. We hit off, and hung out most of the night and got to know each other. What's cool is even though he mostly identifies as straight and I gay, it's like no labels with us, and we seem to have a close, unspoken bond...which is refreshing. So tonight he stopped by with a treat, besides the extremely tight jeans, from one of my favorite bakeries in New York...Zaros.
We was up there doing work the last couple days in Central Park on a project, as he works for a Tree and Horticultural Service, and remembered the name of the bakery. He showed up tonight with a little something for my sweet tooth.
It was quite a surprise. Something so simple, and made me feel happy, made my day, and gave me a fond memory of when you used to get those little surprises at Valentines like when we were in school. I was tickled. When he left I gave him a huge hug, and even gave him a kiss on the cheek!!! Didn't even flinch.
It's refreshing to have this bond. We don't even see each other very regularly. We get together maybe twice a month over drinks.... But his inquisitive side I must admit is sexy...….
