Broken shackles, a parachute, and the drifters


I have mad skills dude…..seriously…if you want it tiled, built, rebuilt, shingled, or wired I AM the fushizzle……OK …so theyre old skills…..but I AM a guy…so I like solving problems…… For the past few weeks I’ve been having a problem. Im a rock…..thats the problem….rocks don’t make good parachutes…..but they DO make excellent stepping stones…..
Shes……..pushing ……ALL the right buttons……..dude is this chess?.....no don’t think so….battleship?...no…..marbles?...no……………archery? LOL…I must have a bullseye on my back……shes singing very sweetly…softly…. …shes dancing very seductively…..shes still…….. taken……maybe I should be focusing on the music instead…..Now I can’t take credit here.

Its the same old story
Same old song and dance, my friend

We used to go watch the drifters at the harvest house of all places. I was typically the only white guy there. But the music really brought a crowd in....lemme tell ya…they didn’t play just oldies ..just a couple of their hits then…….earth wind and fire, Rick james, the commodores, parliamnent. For our little home town it was a PARTY…..Every two weeks when they came through. After the show we would all go back to Leos and party till the sun came up…..then crash…….After a while I lent the drummer some of my cymbals and would bring my bass to jam some…. Out of the blue the lead singer one day cornered me…….. “Do you want to go on the road with us?” …..ha ha ….…wait …what?..... “Youre a great bass player man, do you want to go on the road with us?” …..youre joking right…..I mean…you HAVE a great bass player……”Its not working out…..were having problems”…….
I looked around to see who was listening….. “You know I’m white….….right?” ….he looked dead at me……..”Man……. music aint ABOUT color”……I was silent……He said .”I like you….and you can PLAY……. Think about it” .....
THIS was a problem…... go???......stay???? FRIG!!! I cant just GO dude!!.....How can you NOT go dude???.....
To make a long story short……… I turned it down…… I couldnt jump without a parachute…..or have a solid stepping stone…….I had a good job and in the end old school practicality won out.
But right NOW ……shes testing……me…….and Im much stronger than the caveboys shes accustomed to…… older….smarter……
Her A game surfaces quickly…..the oldest tricks are the best ..no?....her body language is …..intoxicating…….and …..her eyes swell…..softly pleading…….daring me to make her submissive……..the finesse and prowess of a snake charmer…. breathing deeply and slowly……. Shes TAKEN…..

Said love aint the same
On the south side of town
You could look
But you aint gonna find it around

Bring it…….bring a leap of faith. I have……mad skills….but I am not……..a willing parachute…..or a stepping stone…..Love isnt built on broken shackles……A song and dance in chains is……….nothing to a rock. The band is playing……..what’l it be?? This is the last song and dance…….my friend.

Hmm... Forgive me if I'm misinterpreting here, but if she's taken it is probably not a great idea to give in. She may be the most amazing person in the world, and lord knows I have no room to talk about sleeping with someone who's married (Once, but that's a story for a different day) but if it's something real you're looking for, I'd recommend looking elsewhere.

I will say this about my "affair", we had set rules that he wasn't leaving his wife, no matter how much we fell for each other. It's f***ed up, I know, but still... It was an experience.

If it's real you're looking for, you can't expect someone who would leave their spouse for you, not to turn around and do it to you again later...

If it's not something real, and it's just sex, then that is up to your own moral code. No one else can judge what is right and wrong for the two of you.

@ Angie- I am SO lame...shes taken.....not married...she has a boyfriend she lives with and its not going well....
Youre right about the "they did it to get you ..theyll do it to you" thing..... my own exwife cheated on her boyfriend with me when he was out of town....what a bad start eh? spill the married guy story sometime if you can.....

Miss Angie said...

It's actually really interesting... I was working at a bowling alley for about two years, and somehow obtained a "stalker." At the time I had a huge fetish for older men, and so this 36 year old started contacting me on Myspace. He was single at the time, we talked about hooking up, he asked where I worked and I told him the bowling alley (local, he lived close) and he said he'd been there once or twice.

6 months later under a new account the same guy contacts me, as my "Secret Admirer" and I learn that he's married, and that he comes into the bowling alley at least once a week. He signs everything simply by the first initial of his name, and I get caught up in the game.

After months of this "Secret Admirer" thing going on, I finally figure out that he's the Budweiser guy who comes in and fills out orders. Not the delivery guy, but the area manager or whatever... He comes in every monday. We meet for coffe, one thing leads to another, we spend a few months meeting once a week and having sex...

Turns out he started "admiring" me before he married his wife (who was just his best friend before) and then continued after he was married.

I finally broke it off when I moved a little further away, but to this day I still hear from him every now and again. He says he misses me, he says he wants me, and I say it wont ever happen again.

It was definitely an experience... Sorry for practically a whole blog as my comment! LOL! I should blog about it sometime, but I'm not sure it's something I want to talk about where my coworkers and family can read it! :P

I was bummed that I didn't get to vote on your poll. I can't believe 30 minutes is the majority! UGH! I would have to say at least an hour to two hours is the best! HELL YEAH! BRING THAT ON! LOL

"Seattle" Heather said...

Okay now I have to comment on your post.
She knows EXACTLY what she's doing. And I have to say that I have no respect for any woman that goes around shaking the goods and pushing the buttons of men like that. She is being a classic BITCH.
You're best bet Trey is to surround yourself with honest good people. Instead of manipulators. (sp?)
You deserve better don't you??

Violet said...

Heather has it pegged - this woman knows what she is doing. And so do you...you're too smart, Trey, to get tangled in this woman's web. If she's taken, she's not the one you really want.

f1trey said...

@ Heather- Yeah baby !!! LOL Thats my girl!!! Michael Jackson said "dont stop till you get enough!" Go Heather Go heather!

I appreciate you layin it out there..... Sometimes a boy needs that mental swift kick to the head to make him think with the right body part..... im doin ma best ova hea....

@ Violet- Thanks for sayin IM smart...beaming... I need a boost!!!! My high school guidance councelor would NOT agree with you....but it sure is nice to hear!!!!! I feel kinda dated when I hold things to a standard that society doenst seem to recognize ya know??

Charmaine said...

If she's "taken" even the largest parachute in the world won't protect you from THIS fall.

If she's married or otherwise attached and flirting with you...what kind of woman is she really?

If she will betray her husband or boyfriend...what, my friend, will she do to YOU?

S. Eutin said...

It's time to take your show on the road and leave her there. The woman has some of her own issues to work out before she can be of any good in a relationship with you. Step out of the picture and see what she does, does she leave her bf or chase someone else? She sounds co dependent and will always need a man to take her to the next level, sounds like you are her stepping stool until she wants to upgrade, she is poison and will bring you down. You need a real woman, not someone stuck in middleschool.
And, hey, when you go professional, do your faithful followers get backstage passes?

f1trey said...

@ charmaine- 10,000 elvis fans cant be wrong......thats a good point...when the going gets tough I want someone I can work with...not someone who goes looking elsewhere.....

@ S- Nice call....that would be a great tell tale sign...to back up a bit and see how things progress or digress...Professional??? LOL as member of the custodial arts I doubt I will get much stage time....hehehhe just kidding..I still play guitar around town when the mood strikes and i need free drinks!

Amy said...

run.

cover and run.

She's messing with your head, man, and you know it. Yes, she gets to you. Yes, she says there are problems at home. Yes, she knows you want her.

Run.

You're worth more than the drama and heartache this is going to turn into.

Run.

f1trey said...

@Amy- INCOMING!!!! man down man down!!! lol This is either consensus or conspiracy! I hear ya!

April said...

Violet and Heather are right. We, as women, know exactly what we're doing. And if we're good at it, we'll get what we want. Be careful....
