"I would love to date someone that Gavin banged."
-Grey Cloud, bored and calling me at work.
After I stopped laughing hysterically, I had him explain. Apparently, the Gavin stamp of approval makes a woman "legit." I pointed out that when Gavin 'was' a raging boozehound, there might have been some rough trade in there.
"So you're saying I might have a chance with the shitty ones?"
No. I'm just saying that perhaps there's a couple of regretful notches on Gavin's bedpost. I'm sure this is fine with GC. After all, this is the guy that made a spreadsheet of all of the women he's bedded, rated in such categories as breast size, sexual ability, coolness, etc.
Keeping in mind that this was a long, long time ago, I made the mistake of asking where I ended up on said spreadsheet.
The only category I'm willing to reveal here is that I was "cool." When I asked what that meant, he responded, "I'm willing to hang out with you sans sex."
Much like Big Chris, however, Grey Cloud does a very good job of keeping it real. Cruel and brutal honesty from someone I adore gives me insight into what men really think. And turns out, they actually think things like "I would love to date someone Gavin banged."
