Opened up a nice Chardonnay from Atwater Vineyards of Finger Lakes, NY and started to reminisce through my diary. What a perfect pairing…
Diary Entry: – Thursday April 23, 1992 Buffalo, NY
Sometimes I think “If only I had made a left turn?” Would I have made it to NYC? Could I have became that famous actress that I always daydreamed about? Performing on Broadway, in front of hundreds of people…Ritzy parties – mingling with the celebs. Well, I’m Bartending in New York – Buffalo New York. (I know, I know, everything’s going to be OK). Now I’m performing glass tricks – ‘getting pretty good if I say so myself. I’ve met several Buffalo Bills, Hockey players, some mobsters, a few local celebs (Rick James) and a…Mortician. I’ll call him my knight in Shining Armor. Maybe this is my destiny.
Diary Entry: Monday April 27, 1992 Snyder, NY
Told my friend Sabrina back home that I’m working across the street, from a ‘Funeral Home. She thinks I should quit and move back to Miami. Decided not to mention I have a little crush on one of the Funeral Guys. During the week the guys come over to vent, the new guy Morty is kind of cute – when he drinks. Today he drank 4 Molson’s in 10 minutes, then…ordered a Jim Beam & Coke. Before his first sip he decides to introduce himself, forgetting he already did last week. When I told him “I met you last week” – he chugged his drink and said…”Well, how do you like me so far?” Umm, better not piss him off he tips good…so, I said “Well, if you make it through the night without becoming one of your own customers…I’ll let you know.” He ordered another.
Then, Lafontaine walked in – I was star struck. Okay…Ritzy Parties, riding in Limos or Late Dinners, getting picked up in a Hearse. I rushed to get his drink order. Suddenly I couldn’t move…the Mortician had a hold of my hand and blurted out “Hey, you know – I’m going to see you naked one day!” Off went the hottest Hockey Player – ever!! I should’ve thrown the rest of his drink…in his face. Instead – I poured him another. Why?? Because I didn’t make that left turn. Maybe this is – the ONE? I’m convinced my Fairy Godmother gave me directions? The left turn, could have been…disastrous. Either way, I think I’m suppose to have met this guy Morty…and with any Luck, maybe next week I’ll see HIM naked. Unfortunately, he will – see us all Naked one day. This is too weird.
