I have been single for almost a year now.
Something I have always been very happy about, especially since Nuffnang launched... I have no commitments to hold me back.
But there are times when the feeling of single-hood catches up on me. And no it doesn't have to come in the form of just seeing happy couples when walking around Ikea furniture shopping for their home (damn I hate those happy couples!!!)
It comes all in the form of a simple invitation.
This Friday, I got invited to this private event for the advertising industry.
I was told that I can "Bring a date".
Which sounds all fine and dandy right?
Except for one problem.
I HAVE NO BLOODY DATE!!!
And for some reason, I am surrounded with girls who are all attached.
YOU CHICKS KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!!
WHY DO ALL OF YOU STICK AROUND ME?!?!? HUH?!?! GO AWAAY!!!! LEMME ALONE!!!!
So there I am going to be this Friday, when everyone else, and quite a number of our clients are going to be there with their wives and dates.
Then they'll all ask me
"Oh Timothy!!! You're here... great to see you mate... who did you come with?"
And I'm going to have to say...
"Oh I came with my pet dog Ah Bop. He's getting wasted at the bar right now... going to go save him in a sec."
Suddenly I begin to feel the way Richard Gere felt in Pretty Woman.
Needing an 'escort' to follow him for events like this.
Where is my Julia Roberts? Where where?
