Prakash

Meet Prakash.
Prakash and I both ordered lemon soda.
I ordered masala, he ordered jaljeera.
His tasted better.
I wanted his.
He refused.
When he wasn't looking,
I swapped our drinks.
I was awesome.
I couldn't stop giggling.
I drank the whole thing.

I found out a few days later
That he knew about the swap the WHOLE time

About Prakash: Indulgent

It was how she had come to marry the man she was married to.
From the sound of her story, he was not so much her definition of a husband, more, the a father to her daughters.

He told me about how displeased he was with the quality of his long island iced tea at this restaurant that was highly recommended.
I understood his angst.

I told him about how, on my way to dinner, I saw this man, clearly poor, being pushed around by the cops.
I think he understood too.

It never mattered how beautiful you were.
Just whether you could hold me.
Hold my attention.

Did I offend your sensibilities as much as all that?
Did I really?

I feel like a weirdo magnet.
I've met three in the last three weeks.
And one of them was even a little bit creepy.

You know those lines that I drew?
The best thing about them?
They were so easy to cross.

Dear L,
I learned this from someone, to ask myself 'What next?'
And while this hasn't constrained me,
It has made me more careful about people, about relationships.
