My morning was shaken up by an experience that I would like to share with you. Perhaps someone can offer me some insight, because I'm completely baffled by what I experienced...
I was out walking my dog I noticed my neighbor's small dog was out in front of her apartment. My dog was yelping and pulling on his leash, so we strolled over to say hello. I was surprised to see my neighbor's husband, Frank, sitting in a wheelchair in his doorway, holding the rope that his dog was tied to. I knew he had been in and out of the hospital and rehabs several times over the past six months, so I was surprised to see him home again. He looked as pale as a ghost and was extremely skeletal. Trying to be warm and welcoming I began to just small talk. Frank discussed his most recent tragedy, the amputation of half of his right foot. Months ago, most of his left leg had been amputated. all due to poor circulation from having diabetes.
He's been through hell, but seemed happy enough to still be among the living, and eager to chat. We both use the same dog groomer so Frank asked me whether I had seen Beth lately. She also happens to be on old high school friend of mine, so I am in touch with her quite often. Somehow Frank brought up the subject of Beth's pot smoking, which she has continued to enjoy all these years since she and I were teenagers. Much better than consuming alcohol as far as I'm concerned. He told me that he used to smoke marijuana, and I added that perhaps he should try it again to help him with his loss of appetite. Which immediately stirred him to remember and mention how much it had helped to increase his sexual prowess... I sarcastically remarked, "Like I need to know that about you Frank?" Expecting to let him know that I was NOT in the least interested in moving our conversation in that direction. I let it pass and turned the topic back to other things that smoking marijuana is good for. He then paused and said that he wanted to ask me a question... Without any hesitation. he asked whether weed was sexually stimulating for me? UNBELIEVABLE!!!!
To look at this guy, you can see he is not long for this world. Plus, he just got out of the hospital late last night! He's also married to a woman who does everything for him. For sure, he was not 'coming on' to me, but how the hell does this guy still have the oomph left to want to titillate himself with some sexual banter? It completely grossed me out and I just told him that it was none of his business and that he was NOT a gentleman, and stormed off.
This situation with Frank was repulsive, but he is not the only old geezer who lives in my complex who has spoken or acted inappropriately to me. AND most all of them are MARRIED! I'm no 'spring chicken' myself, but I do not welcome these odd sexual innuendos being thrown my way by horny, ancient older men. No matter how unattractive, disabled or feeble they are, sex is still paramount on their brains, and I simply don't get it? ...DO YOU????
