Kim and I sat together and had a few more drinks. It was really easy to talk to her. I can talk to anyone about anything - it isn't because I want to or like to...but talking was always involved something I was "up to". With Kim it was different. It was one of the rare times where everything clicked. If you know the feeling then you understand what I am talking about. I was thinking to myself over the last seven years I have traveled all over the United States and I find this woman in Buffalo, New York.
As the night went on and more drinks were consumed, the conversation turned to "how long are you here for?" Now this is a tricky question. I couldn't say as long as it takes me to get you in my room (LOL). So I had to think this through...do I go for it and say one day and force the issue? I could tell her the truth - that I was going to be there a few days because I was going into Canada to hit the strip clubs. Or I could float some bait to see what I might catch. The problem with bait is that it only works if what you are trying to catch is hungry! The final option was to ask, "you wanna do some lines?".
All of those ideas were viable, but I decided to use the sentimental path. I gave her a story. I said as a little boy my family took a family vacation to Niagara Falls. When we were here, I hounded my dad for a nickel to put into the oversized metal binoculars. My Dad gave me the nickel and told me to wait but, much like today, it's not my style. When I went to put the dime in the binoculars they tipped and crushed my fingers. At ten years old I started crying and then got yelled at for not waiting.
I went through the whole story with Kim. I said I wanted to go see Niagara Falls and do it without crying. She looked at me and suggested we go see the Falls. She had the next two days off, and planned for us to get up early and check it out. She told me that she would show me around, but that I'd have to hang out with her on her days off before leaving to continue my trip.
Hmm...do I want to hang out with an attractive broad for a couple days? Is that even a question?!
But first, we had to stop at her place so she could change in the morning.
Yes, there is a God - can I get an AMEN!
