John* and Lisa* are a couple. Lisa had organised a girls’ night out with her friends, and will stay over at one of her friend’s place after. John thought, “Cool. I’ll organise a boys’ night out then.” He even got Lisa’s OK.
So John and the boys went out for a night of food,
sex and debauchery, clubbing and drinking. Good Thai food, great conversations of sexual and dating faux-pas and misdemeanours, eye-candy at the clubs and plenty of alcohol saw to it that the boys had a fantastic time.
Soon (and when I say soon, I mean 7 hours later) it was time to go home. The designated driver of the group dropped a few people home. One of John’s friend who had parked his car at John and Lisa’s place will stay the night. He’s had too much to drink. John thought it was the right thing to do to make sure his friend was ok, and to tuck him into bed in a non-gay way. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
Here’s where John got into trouble. You see, he had sorta mentioned to Lisa that he will go to her friend’s place to spend the night with her there or something. Lisa was none too pleased when John called and told her about the change in plans, and he won’t be going over to see her.
It was nearly 4am. She will get to see him in a couple more hours. They live together and they see each other every day. The possibility of one of the boys over-drinking was always a definite one. John had the decency to call to say he’s not going over, and his excuse for not doing so is legit and honourable. Plus he was home. So what’s the big deal?
I’m on John’s side. How about you? 🙂
