This is weird, and now there is a witness maybe.
NY Times Article: The Man Date
I was at a bar on Saturday night after my show, and I don't know how it came up, but my director started telling me about an article in the Times about The Man Date. I didn't even know exactly what the article was about but my first thought was "I have to go tell Z* about this." Then Z sent me the link this morning.
Z, of course, is my best friend, and also happens to be a homosexual.
Just kidding. He's not my best friend. But we have gone on plenty of Man Dates.
In any case, this article was interesting, although just about every quote from a guy irritated me, especially the comment from Mr. Kim, who was worried that (gasp) someone might have seen him OUT WITH A GUY! People need to get over their fears - or at least figure out what's going on inside that causes them to have them in the first place.
I will admit I did have one of these weird moments recently. Z and I went to Angel's on 61st, and the table seemed a little cozy. I think I even commented that all the table was missing was a romantic candle. But it wasn't a big deal. We ate, talked, and had sex in the bathroom. Typical night.
The final part of the article caught my eye:
All men, however, agree that one rule of guy-meets-guy time is inviolable: if a woman enters the picture, a man can drop his buddies, last minute, no questions asked. A romantic date always trumps a man date.
Huh? What about "bros before hoes?" "Whoever smelt it, dealt it?" Or whatever that phrase was?
*name changed. Now you have no clue who it is.
