We met at my favorite restaurant (230 Forest) in Laguna Beach. He was sitting at the bar sipping a dirty martini.
In person he resembled Mel Gibson. Sitting down he was quite handsome. Standing up he was approximately 5' 4".
After a delicious dinner we walked to the Surf and Sand Hotel (Splashes) for a night cap. We ordered coffee drinks. I haven't ' had a "coffee drink" since I was 21. Remember them? "Mexican Coffee please".
The waiter arrived with our "coffee drinks". We took one sip, immediately looked at each other and said:
"I hate coffee drinks".
We called Raol over to advise him of our discovery. We requested to exchange the coffee drinks for glasses of wine.
Raol did not understand this concept. But eventually we got our wine.
When Raol returned with the wine I said,
"I hate wine". I would like to exchange this for some whiskey, please".
Raol stared at me for 2 minutes without speaking.
My date cracked up.
I'm seeing him again tonight.
