Good Friend/Bad Influence??



In May I went out for dinner with my good friend Matt. We have been friends since we were nineteen and have been through many ups and downs. I had noted that the only thing he was feeling passionate about recently was a juicer and a blender he had recently bought.
He is straight, early thirties and single.
Being excited about making smoothies seemed a little wrong.

So I called in 'The Biker Boyz'. Two blokes I work with who are mad keen bikers, The Two Mikes. I persuaded Matt to meet up with them for a teeny weeny bitty drink and a maybe a chat. I mean, he didn't have to listen. Did he?

They met on 1st June at about 6pm. The Boyz entered the pub in full leathers and placed their helmets on the table. Quite an entrance. Nothing like two well built men in leathers. I pointed out to Matt the pulling ability that becoming a biker would bring him.

By 6.02pm he was wavering, by 6.15pm they were pouring over biking magazines, by 6.30pm he had caved in.

Today he came round to show me his brand new shiny bike. In the past two months he has gone from never having ridden before to having passed his test to ride 500cc bikes.

I have NEVER seen him so happy.

So am I a good friend or a bad influence??

Who can resist those fluttering eyelashes. When you get over here I promise I will (but I might have to put a 'MINE' ticket on one of them)

Biddy said...

Still trying to decide ;)

Sasha said...

Deal, as long as it's o nly oone of them. I need to have choices. Especially if you're going to make me come over there. ;)

Biddy said...

You mean I can't put stickers on all of them?? I can find some more if you want??

Sasha said...

Okay, you can sticker someof them...as long as I get an equal amount to choose from.


Geez, It's almost scary the trouble we could cause! LOL

Biddy said...

You have to come and visit! If you add Julie, Vicky and Anna to the equation... blimey.

Sasha said...

I agree...You come to Atlanta...I'll come to London.

I'll go wherever you want as long as I can drink, eat, and look at men in leather.
