I met double A at beer bust yesterday afternoon. Mike and Chris showed up along with Garrett and Neil. Martin and his new guy also made an appearance. It was a festive crowd. Many guys showed up with bunny ears and a few had Easter bonnets. It seems there were a lot of gay Easter brunches and celebrations whose participants descended upon the beer bust to continue the festivities.
I met a guy who was in town for business. He was a handsome, well built, ex-marine two years younger than me who was now working for a consulting company. We hit it off and soon it was clear he wanted to spend some one-on-one time with me. I told him I was HIV+ which turned out to be a deal breaker for him. He was married and didn’t want to risk bringing home anything to his wife. I told him having a wife was a deal breaker for me. I bid him adieu so he could find some other man willing to help him break his marriage vows.
Mike ordered a round of tequila shots for the group after the guy wandered away. I downed the shot before heading home. It was getting late and I wanted to catch the premiere of Mad Men. Double A headed to the Eagle while the rest of the group hit the Avenue Grill for dinner. I was content to spend the night catching up with the Mad Men crew. Isn’t it ironic that the central character, Don Draper, is a serial adulterer?
