Are you Anna Hicks?

So there I year...out on the town and enjoying my night, then a feel a prod in the back and a tall devilishly disheveld hunk gyrating around my chair;

"Are you Anna Hicks?"

several things sprung to mind:
1) this guy has a really cool pink pinstripe blazer on, and is able to pull it off well.
2) why is he gyrating around my chair, and not my leg? it was like some kind of tribal come on
3) am i really drunk, or did this stranger just mention my name?
4) hang on, how does this guy know my name??
5) what have I done, for him to know my name?
6) panic.. oh god do I now have a reputation, for being a bit of a ho?
7) is my name on the toilet doors? for a good time call Anna???
8) no, no how would he know I was Anna by just a phone number
9) this guy is still gyrating, and looking good, is it the blazer, do I fancy him? am I drunk??

Me: "eermm yes, yes I am Anna Hicks, how do you know my name...."
Him: turning to his friends "oh my god I knew it was her!"
Me: "right ok, still don't get it - what is your deal" (getting really frustrated and paranoid)
Him: "Oh my god Anna, it's me... I stood you up on a date when we were like 15"

my life flashed back rapidly to being 15, alone and heartbroken outside the cinema, and now the doosh is stood in front of me, at 22, older, better looking (no highlighted curtians, but some cool designer stuble going on now) and quite keen to get into some close contacted chatting.

But he still stood me up, and had announced this to his friends, and mine, in the middle of a busy bar. Thanks. What does one say to such a welcoming chat up line?

option 1: "yeah, you did me a favour to stay away from pricks like you. dick head"I dind't want to come accross as the scorned 15 year old who still hadn't got over it though

option 2: "really, so, you better get me a drink then now to make up for it!" too cheesy?

I didn't go for either of the above, instead I downed a shot that had been waiting for me, and headed to the dancefloor....keeping my eye on him.

I could see he was talking about me to his friends, and smiling at me. As much as I wanted to hate him for doing that to me, I really wanted more of him


  1. Oh wow. I love it when things go full circle like this.

    But damn him for turning out so sexy!

    I love the line "why is he gyrating around my chair, and not my leg? it was like some kind of tribal come on"


    And kudos to you for not having a go there and then or being too cheesy. I think you played it just right.

    However, I still hope that is more to come. There is, isn't there?!

  2. Lol. Whine: Ended too fast. Want More!

  3. thanks for your comments lovelies. more is on the
