The Last-Call Girl

In case no one noticed it, Jethro figured out how to link other blogs. I gave it the old college try for about 2 hours (which was about as long as my ADD could take). Jethro figured it out in about 5 minutes, and in my joy, I linked to everyone who posted on my site. If you want to be removed, let me know and I will do it and apologize for my lack of etiquette :-)

So Johnny5 (who I will link to if he wants) asked about last call. Several stories (unfortunately) come to mind, but one in particular stands out. I had a friend when I was about 17 or 18. She was gorgeous and sophisticated and drove a Mustang convertible. I was the friend who came along to make her look good. Invariably, we would go out and meet guys. The good looking guy would hook up with Gorgeous and I would be stuck with Ugly Friend. Ugly Friend and I would, of course, be aware that we were the ugly friends and bitterly resent each other for it.

One time, just after I turned 18, we went out to a club and Gorgeous naturally hooked with the hottest guy there and I was left with well... you know. After hunting around the club vainly for other options, I just decided the heck with it and ended up making out with Ugly Friend in the backseat of the Mustang. And so began my journey into the world of less attractive, but extremely grateful men.

oh your born lucky - we are about the same age. but for some reason "ugly" guys my age think the deserve the hottest chick (as in they could pose for playboy - damn MTV for giving them ideas) around + she has to be three years younger. and when i say "ugly" - i mean decent guys that are good looking in the average way, they all have nice skin and nice teeth - but i would not call them hot. oh woe is the world of 23 year old females.

You were a "friend" too? The thing is, one of my gorgeous friends wasnt' even that gorgeous, she just put out more than I did!

Had one friend that was so gorgeous, even her castoffs were gorgeous, she was a friend I liked going out with!lol.

Were you ever in the Columbia, SC area? If so can I please have my wallet back?

Kady- I think all guys think they deserve the hottest chick, but I think we all end up with the hottest people who will have us. This usually means we are stuck talking about each other's "great personalities" and "beautiful souls."

Gorgeous Friend was way hotter than me and she put out- so I was left thoroughly in the dust. It was sheer masochism on my part kept me going out with her.

Greg - I was never in SC (except when I was about 8), so it probably was not me who took your wallet. Probably.

JP - That most certainly was me. And you should be embarrassed.
