An Awkward Racquetball Invitation

The following exchange actually happened to me yesterday at 6:30 pm.

OLD MAN: How are ya feeling?

PETER: Oh, I’m pretty sore from shoveling for a couple hours yesterday.

OLD MAN: [chuckles] Yeah, me too.

THE OLD MAN REMOVES HIS SHIRT.

OLD MAN: Say, you ever play racquetball?

PETER: Nope. Not since high school gym class anyway.

OLD MAN: Oh, well, you should. It’s a lot of fun.

THE OLD MAN REMOVES HIS TROUSERS.

PETER: Yeah?

OLD MAN: I like to play for an hour, then take a half hour break, then play for another 30 minutes or so.

PETER: Sounds like a good workout.

PETER SITS DOWN AND TAKES OFF HIS SHIRT. THE OLD MAN HAS REMOVED HIS UNDERWEAR AND NOW STANDS COMPLETELY NAKED, 3 FEET AWAY FROM PETER’S FACE.

OLD MAN: I’d be happy to play a game with you and teach you sometime.

PETER: That’s very generous of you, but I don’t really have any equipment or anything like that.

OLD MAN: That’s no big deal. I’m sure we can find you something. It’ll be fun.

PETER: Okay, we’ll see!

THE OLD MAN WADDLES AWAY NAKED. PETER PUTS HIS HEADPHONES BACK ON AND PONDERS TOMORROW’S BLOG ENTRY.

Ah, the joys of a YMCA membership!

    I’m sure Bridgette’s dad was just trying to make you feel like part of the family.
    It’s impolite not to offer.

  2. Ted says:

    Nevermind. I cannot top that last comment.

  3. peter says:

    Yikes. That would have been particularly brutal.

    Although Bridgette’s dad does have a habit of wandering around their house in the morning in his underwear, which is always awkward.

  4. Why didn’t someone tell me how I am? I’ve been embarassing myself my whole life! MY WHOLE LIFE!
