Playing Grown Ups


OBF (Other Best Friend) and I went for a fancy lunch yesterday, just the two of us. It was super nice. I think because we have known each other for so long though, it also felt a little weird.

OBF and I met when we were in our late teens. We were both pretty 'new' to the gay scene in Perth and went out together for about 3 weeks before deciding that we were better off as friends. Our whole friendship since has been central to my existence - he is extremely important to me.

Both of us have a tendency to mania. This has proven interesting on many and varied occasions when we've been out - one particularly memorable occasion (including copious amounts of alcohol) culminated in us throwing hot wax from table candles over one another and then me ripping his shirt off in the middle of the bar (at which point we were thrown out).

So sitting opposite one another in this lovely, subdued and extremely 'grown up' restaurant together made us feel, well, a bit grown up. And it was really, really nice. We sat and ate and talked for nearly 3 hours.

I love OBF.

*I just thought the David Shrigley photo would make him laugh.

Ziggy, sometimes you come across as so "old" and other times such a kid. It's one of the things I like about you. A fancy dinner is such a treat, and to be able to enjoy it as such is a wonderful thing. You and OBF are both blessed to have each other :)

Oh good times...good times.

I'd be mindful of the candle wax in your "old age."

That middle paragraph didn't half make me smile! Reminds me of me last Saturday.

I agree with Dabich. Your blog definately has multiple personalities.
However, old or young, highly entertaining!

Old friends are the best. But it's interesting the patterns in which you find yourself with them. Since you've known them for so long, it's like you're always like kids together. And when you do "adult" things it throws off the dynamics somehow.

btw- "hi". I'm back and I missed you.

Ziggy, I love the classy feeling of fine dining. I was lol at your candle wax story. You're not a bad gay, you're a naughty gay! ;)

God do I really sound like I'm split personality?

When do I sound 'old' and when do I sound 'young'?

hhhhmmmm. something to think about.

DaBich said...

No, No, No, not split, just not the same boring person all the time. You're complex, even if you think you're not. Silly Ziggy!

Sar said...

Ziggy, come play - I promise this week's easy! :)
