I live over a bar...The Blackhawk...so it’s a pretty sure bet that I spend a good deal of my evenings at home downstairs with a beer, watching the game, or the races...whatever’s on. That said, I’d have to say my biggest pet peeve is the type of guy I call the Happy Hour Cassanova. It’s the kind of guy that thinks that by going into a place like The Blackhawk, getting drunk, and spotting a pretty girl gives him free license to be a prick.

You see it in bars all the time...guy gets plastered and tries to feel up a waitress or some other woman. You want to step in, and sometimes you do...at least you do if you got any balls. Not much more than harmless morons with a few to many Jacks in them. Bouncer can handle them pretty easy, especially if they don’t just get gropy, but loud.

However, there’s more dangerous types than the shitfaced obnoxious Happy Hour Cassanova...there’s also the ones who are perfectly civil. You never spot them ‘cause women welcome them to their table. They share a few drinks, some nice conversation...but then they cross the line. Somehow, some way...they do something inappropriate, and the woman they’ve chosen gets spooked and walks out on ‘em.

Sounds harmless enough, doesn’t it?

There was a guy like that at The Blackhawk a few years ago. He was one of those types...and he killed a woman named Julia Caufield about a year before I met him. He killed her because she rejected him...he hurt her and he dumped her body on the street.

I fell for Julia a year after she died...I caught her killer, and I helped her find peace so her spirit could move on.

Ever since that night? If I see a girl getting hassled, I do something about it.

And when I know she’s safe...I go home.

I've dealt with more than my share of those types, and it's nice to know there's someone willing to do something about it.

How've you been? :)

Well, what can I say? Aside from the obvious, I was raised to be a gentleman, after all. ;)

Remind me to tell you about Julia sometime...she was a hell of a girl. You'd have liked her.

Me? I'm doing good...actually slept through the night the other day. I think Simon's off his game. Heh.

Which you very much are. Besides those accidental insinuations and shoving your foot in your mouth, I mean.

I'd like to hear about her. Feel free to bend my ear anytime.

And good to hear it. Maybe he's just getting annoyed that he's not getting to you the way he'd like. Maybe he'll give up!

Hmm.. prolly not.

I guess there's just no getting around the whole 'being male' thing, is there? Sooner or later, we all say something stupid.

And yeah...Simon's not exactly what you'd call easily dissuaded. In fact, 'stubborn jackass' might even be a more appropo description, but you didn't hear that from me. ;)
