I Wanted A Pepsi, Not Your Life Story

A few weeks ago, I went to this elder's ball right after attending a social event that my friends invited me to. I was originally ecstatic about being at the event. I got to eat barbecue burgers and hot dogs at one event, and the fact that I was personally invited to another event was great. Aside from that, the subject matter meant so much more to me.

It was an elder's ball celebrating the elders. I for one was happy for them. Elders have given the new generation so many blessings that we still need. They deserve a night where they can celebrate what they've accomplished.

I walked inside and tried to get the party started with my dancing. There were only a few people inside, but that didn't mean we shouldn't be looking and acting like statues. So that's what I did.  A half hour later, I found myself dehydrating. I needed a beverage. So I walked over to the bar and asked the bartender for a Pepsi.

I believe the woman was in her 60's. But I will admit she looked amazing for a woman in her sixties. From her makeup to her accessories, she looked gorgeous. I'm gay people. Let me compliment things dramatically please.

A half hour passed since I asked for my Pepsi. Instead of getting a Pepsi, what I got was this woman giving me her life's story starting from the age of 15. She talked to me about her family, her travelings, her upbringing, her marriages, her children, and how she feels about currently being in her sixties. 

I'm an open minded person. I love listening to stories. But it's another ball game when you were asking for something else in your mind. So as much as I wanted to listen to her stories, my mind was completely focused on a Pepsi. So her story was completely blocked from my mind.

She finally stopped talking and listened to me when I clearly asked for my soda. Then she dropped the bombshell when she told me that I have to purchase a ticket from the front entrance in order to drink something from the bar. I was broke at the time. So my Pepsi request was revoked. Still, it was a wonderful ball.

Congratulations to the elders!

Addict Of Fiction- Will I Reach The End Of This Little Fighter 2 Demo?

I recently wrote a new article for Addict of Fiction. It's the first article of this month that I wrote for my gaming crew. I personally miss my friends. so I had a blast writing another article for them. I have ideas for many new ones. So I'm not leaving my writing crew any time soon. So you can expect many more writing material for Addict of Fiction.

This article is based on my experiences playing the online demo version of Little Fighter 2. This game is my downtime. If I have no writing deadlines, I can just sit back and enjoy a wonderful RPG in order to pass the time.

But there is one thing about this game that drives me crazy. With one click on the picture you'll know exactly what I mean.
