 Naked dancing and losing friends

 Author:  Topic:  Posted:
Feb 08, 2002
Something has been on my mind for a while. A few weeks back I went to visit a friend of mine, a surgeon, who I hadnīt seen for ages. The first day I turned up, as usual, pretty drunk, we got drunker, we had a great time.

Is ?cunt? banned from adequacy?

Hello I?m not completely new here and I?m fairly mediocre
Australia and Australians
The next day we had lunch and then in the early evening he had to go to the hospital because he was on call that night. His girlfriend, A, had kindly arranged for another girl, B, to visit that night so that we wouldnīt be sitting around feeling bored.

Another long bender ensued. At about 2 in the morning, it somehow transpired that the girls were encouraging me to take my kit off. Or at least it seemed like that. Within minutes I was dancing around naked in front of A & B wearing only my 1920's style cap, a cravat and my socks. They really found it quite funny.

Unfortunately my friend didnīt when A called him to see how it was going at the hospital and, by the by, told him what had been going on. He went ballistic and was implacable.

The next morning I went out to buy ingredients for a gorgeous seafood risotto as a peace offering. When I returned, it was clear that there was no peace to be had. He ordered me out of the house immediately, shouting at me that I had abused his hospitality etc. I tried to protest that, if anything, it was alcohol-fuelled high-jinks and nothing else, and that certainly there were no sinister motives on my part. If I had wanted to seduce his, rather unappealing I must say, girlfriend, I would have found smarter ways to do it, I flatter myself to think.

Moreover, I didnīt even bother telling him that both A & B had ended up taking their tops off and that, in fact, they had ended up in bed kissing and fondling each other. I dumped my groceries on the floor and walked out of the door. I havenīt seen him since.

Fellow adequates, what do you think about this? Should I apologise (I already had several times, not that I saw much to apologise about)? Or should I forget about him, considering that he had always had a slightly conventional streak at odds with my own devout beliefs? Was I at fault?

I feel like I've just been asked advice on which color of shit looks more appealing to me.

finaly I've been surfing adequacy on my 2am - 5am job at a computer lab and at lnog last someone said something that got me off guard and actually made me laugh. I think this site is like a pain killer it dulls your reaction to everything... unless your a complete moron and you actually take things on this site seriusly.

Looking at this letter I can only say, Drink in the company of someone you know if you are going to act that stupid. First of all, know your limits. Second of all, you can't blame the alcohol, it didn't put itself into your mouth, you did. So looking at this I can only shake my head. I still think you should have told him about the other two. Granted you were not right, but neither is his girlfriend. I would let him know as much.

To paraphrase some cartoon character or other, "Ah...sweet, sweet liquor." I have a glass of wine after work just about every night, and it adjusts my attitude wonderfully.

Alcohol is the food of the gods, provided it isn't abused. As adolph sure did a few weeks ago...

Of course alcohol can be nice in moderation, I'm just thankful I never hung out in social circles that revolved around getting drunk. That comment was just me getting on clean living high horse.

Remember, I am a person who gets distressed over my increasing caffeine intake (though I have only taken it before noon twice this week). I'm living free of booze, drugs, meat, and sex. If only I could kick this Adequacy habit.

I know exactly what you mean. My Adequacy habit has cost me many hours of productivity and a good number of preconceived notions. Too much more of this and I'll start to sound like osm, only much nicer and more girly of course.

Hmm, hauntedattics as a girly osm. This world definitely needs more adult women lusting after teenage boys. It would probably reduce the number of frustrated hackers, school shooters, and anal expulsive Anonymous Readers.

In his last diary entry, your favorite grumpy Eva-philiac and mine talked about voting for Reagan. Now, either this means he's really older than I am, was somehow able to vote for RR before birth, or is just totally full of shit.

Of course I plump for the last of these anyway, but all this to say that I do not, repeat not, lust after teenage boys. You're gonna hafta find some other woman to do the charitable thing for those poor, misguided hackers and anal expulsives.

you are beside yourself with jealousy. You are jealous of Eva, Natalie and the von Trapp girls. Very unbecoming. If it makes you feel better, I like you much more than chloedancer.

Alcohol is the tool of the devil. It tastes like shit, it makes you think it's cool to do stupid things (see the diary entry) and if conusmed in extreme quantities will make you so sick you wish you were dead.

Opium is the food of the Gods. It closely mirrors the chemicals in the brain that transmit pleasure. Astonishingly so. It tastes sweet, smells like the most alluring perfume, it makes you lay around and dream while awake and if abused will simply make you drift off to sleep. Admittedly, you will sleep forever, but at least you won't be sick.

That's the problem. (5.00 / 1) (#14)

Opium makes you think that life is great, right up to the moment reality hits. When it does, the result is usually not pretty.

Alcohol, on the other hand, doesn't fool you into thinking that drinking is acceptable. Any alcoholic realises how utterly disgusting he really is.

Peace and much love...

You mean your friend got so upset that you simply got naked in front of his girlfriend?

Obviously he's insecure and jealous of you. He'll get over it eventually...probably right after he dumps her and realizes he doesn't have *any* friends.

Now, if it had been his wife...that's a different story. That's called a threesome.

Well not that it makes it right but I've been hanging out with a friends chick before and some friends gotten loaded and ended up in bed with her. So I guess from my standpoint you didn't fuck her so whats the big deal?
