Karma Buildup Increases

The ground disturbance in the karmic universe of Smoot is really getting rather terrifying. While feasting on pig shank in jelly at lunch yesterday (dipped in vinegar), an old old acquaintance passed by and said hello, gave me his card. I almost choked.

This guy I knew since we was all 14 (back in the day, just 3 years ago). Someone (anal) suggested that we couldn't possibly have a group date without an equal number of boys and goils, so someone suggested Christopher as an appropriate stand in. I believe "He's always available" was the winning tag-line.

I called Christopher at his home to introduce myself and to extend the invitation. His mother informed me that her son was not in. I thought she was going to ask me why girls are calling her 14 year old son when he's in an all-boys school, but the next thing she said really stopped me in my tracks.

"Why are you calling my son? He's very bad company, you know. You better not call him anymore. He will never amount to anything good. He's a very bad boy. You shouldn't mix with him."

Jesus Christ. That's a ringing endorsement if I ever heard one. What kind of mother talks about her child like that?!!

So anyway, to the ears of a 14-year old girl, it really IS a ringing endorsement. Christopher secured his place at the group date once he returned my call, and every single girl there wanted to get to know him better.

Ran into him about 10 years ago when I had a 6-month window of no-boyfriendness, and we dated briefly. He asked me if I could start seeing him exclusively and I think I did say yes, then I forgot about it and also forgot to call him which, I've come to understand, can really piss a guy off. And now, here he is!

Is there a statutory limitation period on karmic payback?

I'm more interested to find out if his mother's prediction came true.

Is that the dude that upset you so much that you decided to drink beer thru a straw at the beer garden that used to be behind the old Lido cinema? And yes...the projectile vomitting which ensued after at the 24 hour KFC after was well...hilarious.

Indy, I really thought since it's the women who are complaining about not getting calls from guys, that it wouldn't be such a big deal. It's just a leetle eetsy beetsy call right?

Legal Janitor - you can still do that for your son(s). Paste a Post-It next to the phone with the correct wording :)

LMD: He's a sales consultant for Fiat. What do you think?

And as for Ms Moniebaloney, I'm surprised that some of us have such long memories, Ms "Would rather hide in a public toilet in my swimsuit reading a book than go meet guys on a group date". I don't recall being upset over a guy at that time. I think I was just being cheap - that was some stranger's leftover beer, at Brannigans, and I never threw up on anybody. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Yes,as always the toilet incident is brought up YET AGAIN.I'll never live it down.Perhaps you blocked the KFC incident out of your head (as would I) but I never said you threw up on anybody.Just a poor table at KFC that had to be excorcised and burned after.
