Yes, that was me making out with a total stranger in the middle of the dance floor on Saturday night. He was from out of town, totally hot, tattoo’d and he had a tongue ring. We danced hip to hip all evening, and when he aggressively bit down on my lower lip, I felt electrified.
At (almost) 42, this kind of thing doesn’t happen to me any more. Mainly because I don’t go out. Night clubs, loud music, and too much drinking does not sound like a good time to me, but it was on Saturday. It started out innocently enough; meet up with the girls for a bevi and food. I met up with my friends some time around 8pm at a local restaurant/pub. I haven’t seen these girls in awhile, so there was lots of catching up to do, and drinking goes very well with gossip. At one point, one of the girls noticed a large table of MEN sitting across the room from us. One thing led to another, and the group of us was off for a night on the town.
We went to the only night club in town that caters to a diverse crowd. A live reggae band was playing, and the vibe was totally chill/fun. Reggae, of course, leads to some pretty sultry dancing, which in turn, leads to … Stranger kissing. “Stranger Danger Indeed” The best part about “the kiss” was that it was just a kiss. OK, it was a lot of kissing, but that’s where it ends. There were no expectations, as least not on my end. I continued my evening of dancing, laughing, and mingling. When it was over, I hoofed it home. It’s only a 40 minute walk from downtown to my place on the hill, so I generally walk if I can.
After the initial headache wore off on Sunday morning, I felt fantastic. I felt young and sensual. I haven’t felt like this in over 10 years. I’ve mentioned before that one of the main reasons I wanted to come off medication was because of my lowered sex drive. Up until Saturday night, I hadn’t felt any different in that department. NOW — I do. I didn’t take the stranger home: that’s not my style. However, one night of wild abandon has re-lit my fire. I’m a walking time-bomb waiting to meet my MR. right (or mr.right now).
