The Party (Part 2: The after party)

The Party (Part 2: The after party)

After I went downstairs at Clark’s birthday party, I walked around with a new and seemingly undeserved confidence.  Smiling very wide, I went around to tell one of my buddies the good news about my very recent loss of innocence.  He gave me an emphatic high-five, and said “Oh man! That’s awesome! Which girl was…

The Party (How to lose your virginity [Part 1])

The scene in this picture is exactly what a house party is like; Smoky air, people absurdly drunk, and the hazy image of potentially nude breasts in the background. While this picture was taken outside after the Chicago Blackhawks won the championship, it describes exactly the scene at a great college party, specifically the ones…

Emergency room: The failed date

Emergency room: The failed date

A date can (and most often should) end in coitus, the physical act of love.  A date can end in the soon-to-be-broken promise of another date.  A date can even end in a pity kiss.  However, a date should never end in the girl meeting you at the Emergency Room in a very well air-conditioned hospital,…

The unexpected bulls-eye (A story about winning)

I have been drunk before.  While drunk, I have played darts before.  When my brother, James, and his wife, Maggie, were in town visiting a few months ago, I took them away from their kids for a night on the town to party with fast-livin’ Uncle Will.  We went to a local bar with great…

The Girl Next Door (The Truth In Parentheses)

A lot of people say I like the kind of tattooed woman who rides her bike to music festivals before going to sleep in her hostel-like apartment in one of the cooler neighborhoods of the city.  (They are right).  They have even gone as far to give this type of woman an ever-appropriate nickname, “The…

I ain’t sayin she a gold digger, I’m saying I’M a gold digger

A lot of people think I do stand up shows every night of the week so that I may one day be a nationally-recognized headlining comedian.  This is only part of the story.  One of my main goals in life is to find a woman who is much better off than me financially.   Kanye…

The “Ninja Roll” : An escape from any awkward situation

When comedians hang out outside of a show, a lot of people think we talk about comedy for hours. While that is partially true, talking about comedy can only last for about ten minutes unless absolutely necessary. The rest of the time we are talking about how bad or good of a time we had…
