The payback begins

So, picture this. A-hole is so wrapped up in being someone y0unger than he really is. This is a 5'10" guy, within 5 months of turning 50, who drives a "family car," thick around the middle, listens to classic rock only, wears boxers that he pulls up halfway to his armpits, and probably wears socks with his sandals. Yet, he presents himself online as much younger, a Master Flirt, talks about how attractive his "shades" are in his pictures, the best kisser you'll ever have....and now he's shaved his head to be "in style". He also wants to frequent the college dance clubs. Ugh.

So, my A-hole-snagging persona drops the name of an obscure alternative indie rock band.

"I listen to them," he says. Yeah. Right.

What a coincidence. They are playing a show downtown. She already has plans to go, she says, but he's welcome to show up, too.

I'm waiting to hear if he did. And how he liked the show. I have this delightful image of his 70s-mellow-music-loving, mid-life crisis, shaved stupid-head stuck among a spike-haired, pierced, tattooed, bouncing mass of much younger humanity. They probably don't even wear any underwear, much less boxers that cover their ribcage.

And he paid a cover charge to be there. Don't feel bad for him being out the cash - he's the first to tell you that, as the owner of a "very successful" business, he can afford it.

More news soon, as I make it....

Now I can't wait to hear how it went. Btw, how will you know if he went? Do you have spies there?

No spies...yet. I'm too new in town to have developed my network yet! But he'll say if he went, even if he's mad. He's not one to edit himself very well!

He's offline this weekend, it looks like. Not unusual, since he plays Daddy on some weekends. So, we'll see what happens in the coming week.
