a very awkward gmail chat to start my day. this is with a guy i went out with this past october. once. and now i kind of know why.
him: hi, how it going?
me: need more coffee…just got off a three hour conference call! ughhhh
how are you?
him: Ouch! just waking up on the first day of summer vacation
me: oh so jealous
him: i am not, i did a tad too much celebrating last night
me: well, at least you get to relax today!
him: hopefully but its loos nice out
did you really mean you think smoking is sexy?
him: really? why
me: cigars can be sexy – like just chilling out having a drink outside with a cigar. i love the smell
him: wow, i thought i was the only one out there that thought this way
him: wow crazy
me: i agreed to babysit my nephew tomorrow night and my sister is giving me instructions now.
him: instructions for what?
me: he’s only 3 months old, i dont know how to take care of a baby
him: oh gotcha
so how was the confrence call?
me: long and kind of obnoxious, but productive
him: thats good
so do you know others that have “fetishes” for smoking or am i the only one?
me: i wouldn’t call it a fetish, but i know some people that feel the same way. not sure there’s a support group or anything, but there’s some.
him: me either, just new to it. just thought i would ask you because i am sort of affraid to look it up on the internet
me: internet smoking porn? is this what you have in store for summer?
him: haha no. i didn’t even know there was such a thing
me: i’m surethere is
him: i wouldn’t doubt it
are you into that sort of thing
me: what sort of thing
him: smoking porn
me: not so much
him: wait so you are a little bit
me: no, i just think that some guys look hot relaxing and smoking a cigar.
him: so you get turned on and one thing could lead to another
me: I guess, but I wouldn’t say I would be looking up internet smoking porn or anything like that.
him: i know i wouldn’t
i am not a prev or sick like that
me: ha, good ot know
him: isn’t it
me: well, i suppose its time i get some work done
interesting conversation to start my day
him: hope you don’t think i am weird.
me: no, dont think you’re weird. have a good day – enjoy the weather!
him: you too
and yes, i think you’re fucking weird, but am afraid of becoming a lampshade so I’ll tell you otherwise.
seriously, this all started purely because i mentioned that a guy, chilling out, relaxing on a summer night drinking a glass of wine, or having a beer and smoking a good cigar was hot. i love the smell of cigars (good ones). and this is what i get in return.
An update came later:
June 22, 2009
him: hi, how are you?
me: i’m ok, a bit tired from a good weekend, but just trying to stay in with the a/c cranked.
him: yeah, it’s pretty gross out today.
him: does it make you want to smoke?
me: i have to go.
