Well, I guess I will never learn …
I went to Tom’s Bar last night around eleven P.M. and didn’t get home until close to four A.M. this morning. (Not good for a man my age.) Around one A.M. a man sat on a stool beside me and we said hello and he said, “You’re an American, aren’t you? So am I.”
Well, we chatted a bit and it turned out we had met before, in Budapest, when we both stayed at the same gay pension, about eight years ago. He’s a black man, about forty, from Phoenix, working in television production. He has a great sense of humor and we talked and talked and then I looked at my wristwatch and, uh-oh. Well, you know how it goes. So, I slept until noon today and now it’s a little past two P.M. and I haven’t done anything other than make breakfast, shave and make my bed. (Oh, the wages of Tom’s Bar …)
Anyway, I’ve posted a photo today which will give you an idea of what young men in Berlin look like this summer. The “Emo Boy” look is all the rage right now. Young men let their hair grow long and most don’t even use a hairbrush, it just rides in tangles on their heads. But I must say, it looks awfully sexy. What do you think?
