After the dinner at the hotel restaurant, I left a nice tip and told my waitress to stop at the lounge and I would buy her a drink. My plans were to have a couple of drinks, hang out, and have an early night. I felt I did some nice prelim work on her, but who knows with these things. I do know this though - women have a sense of recognizing desperation. And I was not desperate...yet (lol).
I strolled into the lounge and ordered a Crown Royal "up". There is no need for anything to contaminate the "Crown", not even ice. As I looked around the joint there were all types of people like businessmen and tourists. These people were all mixed together, thriving in the square world that I had avoided for so many years. Now, in less than two weeks, I would be joining!
I looked into the glass of Crown and thought about the amount of money I had in my pocket - close to four grand. I have started with less before and did just fine. The thought came back to me to stay the course; you don't have to stay in the square world, but you need to clean up and get your swag back. Then I could move onto the only thing I wanted, ever since I had that dream in the seventh grade. The dream of being the Boss of Chicago. I was in a trance fixed on the glass of Crown.
Suddenly, I heard a voice say, "how 'bout that drink". I looked up and saw Kim, the waitress. I turned to look at her, it was hard to contain my joy.
She said, "Sorry it took me awhile, but we have to change if we come into the lounge".
She looked good in the ugly waitress uniform - this was way beyond my hopes. I personally believe in the theory of "any port in a storm" but she had all the things I liked. She had shoulder length, curly, wavy hair that was now hanging free and wild - not in a waitress ponytail. This complimented her pleasant face and body, which was thick in just the right places. I thought to myself, don't blow this.
I said, "Sure, what's your pleasure?"
She had the perfect response. Her response was, "let's have a drink before we talk about my pleasure". I love jazzy women. I laughed, fair enough.
She ordered a vodka tonic with two limes.
Fuck, you could have the whole case of limes if you want...
