Something Better Packaged.

I went to a dear friend’s birthday party on Saturday night, and for awhile, played photographer so that my friend could enjoy her party. After taking a picture with a local celebrity (who happens to be in the same line of work as I), she asked me to pose with him. He whispered in my ear “I don’t know if you want me in your portfolio…I am a stripper, afterall. Then again, you look like you’re into that”. As we posed for the picture, he began rubbing my back, and actually hit my purse, and told me “My bad, I wasn’t reaching for your purse, I was reaching for something better packaged”. Immediately after taking the picture, I grabbed the camera, and began making my way to the other side of the room, avoiding eye contact with him for the rest of the evening.
