Lori was an avid bicyclist. She belonged to two long-distance clubs and they travelled. There were five other single women in the group. Yes, they were competitive and a bit aggressive – however the women had a bond. They were all – nonchalantly- on the look out for: Rodney Right- Mr Big – The One.
Most of the men in the group were married, engaged or rabid riders who only kept track of their time.
One Saturday, the group pulled over in a huge park and stopped to have a bite to eat (Quest Bars and Water.) Lori noticed a friend from work across the park and peddled over.
Her pal, Suzanne was with a large group of men and Lori was intrigued. She spent 30 minutes chatting with Suzanne and rapidly meeting a passel of people. Then, her group was off and she caught up with them.
Janelle, the loud girl in the group yelled back to Lori that they guys looked pretty “Gray” code for: old and not available. Lori kept quiet. There were a two men who were very friendly and handsome.
The next day, Lori called her new-best-friend Suzanne, to chat and really to ask about the very cute, older, guy in he turquoise blue riding ensemble. Mr Salt and Pepper Hair had been very attentive to Lori. Suzanne was out riding her bike when she answered Lori’s call.
Above a cacophony of street noises they chatted. Before Suzanne hung up – Lori asked about the cute older guy. And she heard he was “Gray.” Click.
No problema. She liked older men.
It took several phone calls, a little Google research, and time before our friend Lori realized Mr McDreamy was Gay not Gray.
