Thursday was a great afternoon with Cleo in St James’s.
I was still on a high after our adventures at the Polo on Saturday and with me booked out of the office, it was the perfect opportunity for an undisturbed fest of good food and fucking.
Cleo was on a high, she’s been called back for a couple of auditions and so there was an all-round good vibe as we lunched and then drifted the afternoon away in bed.
Come 7, I had to head to a dinner in the City, so I offered to run her back to Shoreditch.
The taxi stopped by her flat, I opened the door, got out and kissed her goodbye, before getting back in and asking the cabbie to take me to the Embankment.
I sank back into my seat, feeling both tired and elated, when suddenly the cabbie piped up,
“You don’t mind me saying mate, is that your girlfriend?”
“Yes, she is” I replied, feeling more than a little smug, but desparately trying not to sound it
“You bloody lucky bastard, how do you do it?”
Mr Modest kicked in… “Oh, well, I don’t know, er, well, she’s a friend”
“Yeah, right, pull the other one, tell me how you pulled her” (Cabbies are the only people who still talk like this)
“Oh, ok, if you must know, I let her call me daddy when I fuck her”
A long period of silence…
“I wouldn’t care what she called me if I got to fuck her”
