Wattley gave me an eyeroll. He had no love of banking and investments as Nate and I did. Had. Well, I had, Nate still did. Wattley was one of those who could barely balance his checking account. His skills were managerial. He was a people person which made his position as a general operations manager for Happy Hands Adventures, a non-profit that took disabled and terminally ill children on fantasy vacations, a perfect fit for him.
“Sorry. You know Arnold,” Nate said as he rose from the couch. I nodded. I did know Arnold. He never made a decision for himself. “He can’t decide if he has to piss without calling me to give him permission. He’s got a hard-on for the NFT from that actress that sells those candles. I’d sooner carve out my eyes with a melon baller than invest a dime into anything that transphobic cow is peddling.”
“Don’t hold back. Let us know how you really feel,” Wattley joked as he gave Nate a soft shove toward the front door.
“To quote Sam Clemens, ‘Honesty: the best of all the lost arts’,” Nate replied, draping an arm around Wattley’s shoulder then one about mine. “Let’s go have a drink and watch a show. Who knows maybe one of us will get lucky tonight.”
Nearing the huge neon red lips that flickered and hummed above the club doors I was sure of three things:
Nate would certainly get lucky. He always did.
Wattley would get tipsy and embarrass himself. He always did.
I’d sit at the bar with a virgin piña colada wishing I was home. I always did.
Thanks so much for dropping by!
