I wake up this morning to find myself lying in my bed (alone), with a pair of men’s socks on my floor.
Rewind…Last night I went to a house party in the Haight. The moment I stepped into the super-sexy loft, I knew it was a feeding ground for single yuppies. I was immediately greeted by a man named Dan who looked just like my friend Dan, but with a better haircut.
Me: “Hey! Good to see, you… you look a little different, did you get a haircut? Wait…do I know you??”
Dan: “No…that’s why I was introducing myself.”
Fast forward through several glasses of champagne and conversations with pretentious late-20 year olds (most of whom were ironically unemployed), to me meeting a guy with a name that screams OLD MONEY! but we’ll call him Bergamot. Due to his attractiveness on paper (Ivy league school, PhD candidate at a top medical school), I felt obliged to be interested.
I leave the party with Bergamot and some new friends and end up at Bigfoot Lodge (again) on Polk Street. After having a Sasquatch which apparently is another term for “straight Whiskey”, I proceed to be walked home by Bergamot… a walk consisting of me actively stopping a fight from breaking out, Bergamot giving me the Blue Steel stare every 5 seconds (I think he’d been practicing), then removing his shirt somewhere on Van Ness.
We arrive at my door and I make the mistake of letting him come up for a “drink of water”. 2 seconds later I walk into my room with the water and a view of the Naked Man. Damn, too bad I am not in the mood to have sex with a man who is black-out drunk tonight. So I ask Bergamot to get dressed (not before checking him out though) and leave, mostly because I just washed my sheets today and it was such a freaking annoying task that there was no way I was going to do it again tomorrow.
Memorable lines on his way out:
“Unless you are Christian, I think you are making a really big mistake”
“Well that’s fine then if you are a virgin… I mean I was a virgin until I was 14”
But hey, I give him props for the forethought he put into the night…as he pulled out a pen and a neatly folded piece of notebook paper from his pocket to ask for my number. Despite that, the last thing I saw from Bergamot was a middle finger before I shut the door in his face.
