Big Al’s Blog: Mexico for Meetings
Who goes to Mexico for meetings? This guy right here. I have to go to Playa del Carmen for 4 meetings this Friday and Saturday. One meeting is with an accountant to talk about bookkeeping stuff. One meeting is with a lawyer to talk about the corporation papers for the bar. One meeting is with the sound people to talk about the set up for Coolio and one meeting is with the stage people to talk about Coolio’s stage set-up. Ugh, will I even see the beach while I’m there? I will. Only because the condo is on the beach so I will at least have a decent view. But I seriously doubt if my toes will ever hit the water or if my ass will hit the sand.
Speaking of “hitting”, I think I got seriously hit on Saturday night. Either that or she was just super, super friendly. This girl walked up to me and introduced herself , and we took a picture or two. Then without me asking, she gave me her phone number. She said, “give me a pen and some paper.” I did. She wrote her phone number down and told me that she wanted to hang out with me. She said she thought I would be lots of fun to hang out with and she couldn’t wait to hang out. Sure I was flattered but it kind of took me by surprise. She didn’t say it in an annoying way or anything, it just kind of shocked me that after 2 minutes of talking, this girl would tell me that. She even asked if I still had a girlfriend and I told her yes. In fact, she had just left the bar. She didn’t seem phased by that one way or the other. Like I said, I still don’t know if she was flirting or if she was just really friendly. I’m trying to think if I have ever done that. Yes I have. Ok, that didn’t take long. Anyway, she didn’t talk long. She introduced herself, gave me her phone number, and then, the girl just walked away. It was really a pretty weird experience. Not bad weird, just different. But I guess if you want to meet someone, walk up to them and introduce yourself, right?
