Sorry, but I can't post an update on the weekend with GG just yet. Well, I could, and GG could contribute as she's here at the moment. But I think I'll just go with this instead and save that for tomorrow. (No, by the way, I haven't been sitting writing while GG's in bed. I wrote this yesterday afternoon when I was bored!)
So, an iPod moment from my tube journey into the City a couple of days ago. The carriage was full but we were sitting opposite each other - she was very cute, with long dark hair (tied back in a pony tail) and big brown eyes, and she was plugged in to her music, smiling. I was feeling horny and plugged in to mine. We were both holding our earphones into our ears as we tried to drown out the noise from our neighbours (and mine also smelt of garlic - I could have thrown up!) and as I caught her eye I smiled at her. She smiled back, eyes sparkling.
I was aware that she was walking behind me as I climbed the stairs at Bank station to the daylight above, and at the top I stopped and lit a cigarrette as I got my bearings. She walked up to me and fumbled for something in her bag. "Hi", I said. "Shame it's not possible to send your music to someone else's earphones, isn't it? I wanted to play you a track."
She made a joke in response, and looked at me, beaming. And we chatted for a couple of minutes, just flirting really but enjoying ourselves in the process. She was lovely, but I had ten minutes before I had to go to a meeting and didn't rise to the bait. We smiled and said goodbye, and went off in opposite directions. But before she turned and walked away she gave me a long stare, as if she was waiting for something more. I wonder if, come the end of the weekend, I'll regret not acting on my instincts and, at least, getting a telephone number? Call it contingency planning!
It's a funny thing, the tube. I hate using it, and generally choose to drive whenever possible when I go into town. But as soon as I get on a train, my sexuality rears its head. Not literally, or at least not always... but I find the whole experience gets my mind working overtime. I've had lots of sponaneous encounters, but never one from a journey on the tube.
I think it's going to happen... it's just a matter of when. I might just start leaving the car at home.
