Oblivious of a Cougar On The Prowl
After a long night of eating and drinking, we were all at the social stage of the event when my hubby starts talking to this older blonde gal. After a little bit of listening in, I discover it is a friend of ours mom, and they all used to drink at her house when she was out of town. After a few laughs I thought surely this conversation was drawing to a close, but boy I was wrong. Forty five minutes later and a few sly glares across the table, I got up and went for a smoke... by myself.
He came down a few minutes later like all WTF, why didn't you invite me blah blah blah, looking like a deer just escaped from a light factory and I am like well you were too busy chatting it up with that cougar. He replies cougar, she not a cougar she like 50. Well duh, lets take a second to define a cougar, better yet lets just have the East Coast Beach Wife do it for us. So you see, she was definitely a cougar!
The woman would not leave him alone. She follows him down and comes out for a smoke like two seconds after him, just enough time for him to know that I am obviously choked. However, it kept going, until I started glaring at her a few times. Then she moved on... to a friend of ours!
We are all back at the table and she is chatting up our friend. We go out for yet another smoke (yeah I know I smoke too much when I drink) and my man goes, can you go save him, she wont leave him alone.
Ohhhhh who ever could you mean? I thought you said that she was not a cougar, and just chatting friendly with everyone. Yeah everyone with balls! So I do the good deed and go ask him to join us outside. We get out to the hallway and he goes, thank you so much-you saved my life. Hahahahha well cougars do kill their prey I guess. So now it is on. Mr. Clueless bold faced lied that he did not think she was hitting on him, when clearly she was. I can only imagine if the roles were reversed and some old Magnum PI looking guy came over and chatted me up... what do you call a man cougar? A Lion.... anyways I am sure there would have been blood!
