remind me again: to whom are you referring?


C: Just sent you an email...bring back memories?

Peas: Dude who is that guy.

C: Don't you recognise this young man, he's grown up so much.

Peas: Not a clue.

C: You have NO idea?? come on guess...quite a hotty don't ya think.

Peas: Very hot, but a bit on the young side wouldn't you say?

[pause]

Tell me tell me....Did he go to [enter school name here] or [here] or [here]...or UCT? Does it even matter?

C: [that] school.

Peas: No recollection, you sure I know him?

C: Positive

Peas: Maybe you think I know him and it's someone else, what's the big deal with him anyhow?

C: OK I'll give you a clue. Guess how old he is.

Peas: Like 19, pushing 20 max; 21 would be a stretch.

[ping]

Oh my god oh my god. Say it isn't so.

THAT'S THE 20 YEAR OLD I SMASHED IN MY FACE IN THE STREET AFTER THAT TEQUILA PARTY THAT ONE TIME.
IS THAT HIM?

C: Correct. How hot is he?

Peas: SERIOUSLY IS THIS WHAT HE LOOKS LIKE.

C: How classic is that!

Peas: Oh my crap, I just spilt latte all over my desk.

C: It's him alright.

Peas: You're standing in a picture with him.

C: I know his older brother. The one who is OUR age.

Peas: Never would've recognised him if he passed me in the street....or say, at the local creche down the road.

C: I teased him about scoring my mate who is 7 years older than him. Don't think he realised how old you really are.

Peas: That's charming. Why don't I just go out and get a face lift right this second.

C: Classic.

This is also not the reason I have given up drinking. Although memory loss can be a real spanner in the works. Hours of the night disappear; your friends have to relay what you did the night before (if they can even remember), and often it wasn't kosher.
I was lucky this time: finding myself in the arms of a teenage bundle of hotness.

But mostly, memory loss results in completely unkosher activity, and honestly, most people just do stupid things that they get blamed for but they can't even remember it. Again, still not the main reason I've given up drinking though.

Not the main reason, but one of the supplementary ones. Still, it's probably better that things didn't go any further with Junior. After all, if he's willing to throw himself at tequila-soaked mad old women, his judgement, at the very least, is questionable.

You don't have to give up drinking completely - you just have to know when to stop grin. I hate having a hangover as when I have one it kind of cancels out the good time I did have tho I know people who think the worse the hangover the better time they had (to each his own I guess) and good for you for stopping even if it is only for a while

Peas on Toast said...

Kyk - "tequila-soacked mad old woman". Wow, careful now, I might get a big head :)

Nessers - No. I DO have to give up drinking completely. Perhaps at this point I actually don't know when to stop. It's uncertain. So by stopping not-a-drop-wise for two months should at least clean my system out a little before I indulge in the odd glass very infrequently.

kyknoord said...

Terms of endearment, my friend. You know I love you.

KaB said...

haiwenna...how can you not show us what he looks like...crikey!

Good for you though...one must take their hat off to the older woman who bags a toy boy...classy work!

Peas on Toast said...

Kyk - ag, I know! xx

Kab - yeah, usually the older woman who bags the toy is a class act....but this was definitely an exception to the rule.

:)

Gees!!! Peas this reason had better be well worth the sobriety and lack of forthcoming drunken escapades and antics alike on this here blog....I'm talking "you woke up in the morning, turned over and leaned in to snog Mr. 747 only to realise mid lunge that it's in fact his father and your both naked...." You hear!!!

Peas on Toast said...

Anon - ok, hold on. I executed a lunge on his father and we're both naked in my bed??

I need more coffee. That's a really bad image, dude.

What's after alcohol...hmmmmm. Crack? ;)

@Peas: "Wow, careful now, I might get a big head :)"

So is that the main qualifying criteria you look for in these young boys???

Tell me, after you sucked face, did you have to give him pocket money??

Hahaha...

Revolving Credit said...

ROFL...please stop!!

(Rev finds cloth to wipe coffee and cigarette ash from keyboard)

"What's after alcohol...hmmmmm. Crack? ;)"

You've stopped drinking because alcohol was turning you into a lesbian???

Peas on Toast said...

Rev - I see someone is cracking himself up this morning. Cracking himself up....still love a good buttcheek hey Rev?
;)

Jam said...

Yeah - I know what you mean about the ultimate beer goggles. This has caused me to snog anything from 10 years younger than me to 10 years older than me in the past while. But honestly, it was fun!

Peas on Toast said...

Jam - ah yes. And it is fun, especially when you can remember it. :)

Revolving Credit said...

Jammy...wave!

10 years younger to 10 years older?
So you really could have hooked up with both father and son?

Jam said...

All generations Rev. It's enlightening!

SilverSabre said...

Ha!

This is classic :)

Altho i did make out with a 16 year old gal last year...on a roadtrip..at the bar in a strange little town off the N2..

I have no defence tho, i was pissed but i knew exactly how old she was...

yum.

Peas on Toast said...

Silver - 16? Howzit almost-illegal! :)

A 16 year old boy on the other hand doesn't conjure the same image as it's female counterpart.

Zits, angst, baggy jeans,greasy hair and stick-like legs. Yummmy. :)

Champagne Heathen said...

Well done on kissing a MUCH younger guy!

I've always wondered if I could go there, but I have a brother of 21, and so while he has some good looking mates, I'm always reminded of how they all were in prep school...and I just couldn't.

I'm pretty sure I'll get over it though.

Peas on Toast said...

Champers, dude. What the heck are you waiting for china? Your brother is 21 and has 21 year old friends, right?

Jesus in a Jewery. Dude. There's a whole world out there that is better than cocaine!

For one, toys feed the ego. For two, there're never longterm. For three, they dig you. They really really dig you. For four, they're young, fresh-faced and hot.

Stop reading, and organise a braai you can attend with your brother's freinds. Please! For all of our sakes! :)

Nessers said...

Well good for you. Know try ride your bike with no alcohol in your systems - it is WAY easier grin

Champagne Heathen said...

I just can't yet... I can still picture them on their first day of school... when cricket was their ONLY sport & their little 10-yr old lives...when they were getting bust for starting to drink beer & think they were cool.

I once kissed one of them hello ON THE BOY'S CHEEK at some school function in their Matric year and his mom ended up having words with me!!

But this past holiday was the 1st time I did kinda stop & realise "Hey! Look at YOU these days..." Damn 21 yr old boys straight off a beach!

So give me a bit more time...

Nonetheless, it was my MOTHER who was passing comments about how good looking some of them were lately!

Peas on Toast said...

Nessers - yeah, exactly! The bike won't know what's hit it...you know, ehen I eventually get onto it again :)

Champers - tsk, tsk. All I hear is blah blah balh - have a few tequilas, listen to your Momma and befriend some of these boys!!

I have seen an improvement in my memory after doing some mind exercises on a daily basis. Do check out http://www.photographic-memory.org, it helped me and it can definitely help you too.

Ta, Photographic Memory. You should be a salesperson. :)
