I tend to steer clear of big pop-culture trends, usually leaving a Facebook status long after the trend has gone stale and Buzzfeed has beat the ever-living hell out of it. Skrillex hair cuts? Yeah, I made a big deal of how stupid it looks weeks ago. Usain Bolt? I liked him in "Cool Runnings". The Macarena? Had a blast doing that dance last weekend. Psy's "Gangbang Style"? HOLY SHIT WHERE HAVE YOU (I) BEEN THESE PAST TWO MONTHS!?!? That catchy beat pulsating throughout, the wacky video and even the non-sequitorial dance every bit as captivating and hypnotizing as anything I have ever seen. So I spent my Sunday switching between K-Pop music and J-Porn videos. Nearly forgot I was filling in for Carribean Joe at The Hut.
Tonight, we were seated outside, a pleasant Sunday night inviting us to drink and be merry. Much fun was had by all - and many thanks to The Hut's tech/audio crew for helping us set up - with nary an interruption. Except for the drunken gal that insisted on shouting out answers during Round 8: Random Knowledge. Sure, there was banter between the quizzers and moi, much of it vulgarly sexual by nature. But that's the way I roll. This gal, though, who wasn't even participating in the quiz, wouldn't shut up. So I threw a comment her way about stuffing her mouth with a ball gag. Completely off the cuff...and she said nothing afterward.
"Did I embarrass her?" I thought. I am a bit of an asshole when I QM. I'm known as the asshole quizmaster in Tucson. Most love it, but there are some that are annoyed by it. I'm not there to hold your hand. I can give as much as I can take, under or over the sheets, maybe more. Anyway, she gasped and held her hand over her mouth. Two questions later and she tried again. I simply glanced in her direction and said, “Ball gag.” The man accompanying her looked at her, then toward me, then back at her. I like to think her sexual fantasy was revealed last night to him. What was once a vanilla relationship will blossom into some popular book series I hear some adults are into nowadays. I’ll update my Facebook status accordingly when I find out more about those books.
