Flashback: Thirty Days Of Dougie (2013) – Part 29: Materialistic People, Dogs & The List…

A look back to the year 2013 and a little flashback edition of the Thirty Days of Dougie. Enjoy.

Thirty Days of Dougie – Part 29: Materialistic People, Dogs and The List

Isn’t it amazing how some people, no matter how well meaning, can just piss you off with one word or question?  *Sighs*  I must remain patient!  I must remain patient!  Damn, I hate patient!  Okay, this is Part 29 of the “Thirty Days of Dougie” series.  It’s nearly over Peeps, and while the feedback has been nearly non-existent, there has been a little bit to make me feel that this whole project has been worthwhile and that someone has enjoyed my attempts to be relevant for thirty days straight.  I wanted to get back into the writing game in some capacity and I guess I have.  Not to the extent that I once was with the columns, the blog site, the wrestling groups at Yahoo, etc, but I have managed, I believe, to get my feet back into the door with this whole project, as well as the InFamousTV stuff.  A big shout-out to K-Mak for getting me involved with that project (and have I got some ideas for you!  Yeah baby, yeah!)

But that’s the future and this is now which means it’s time to reach into the Magic Box and see what comes up. One topic I did pick (actually for yesterday), was “The List” and I’m not sure if it’s appropiate to talk about. I think we all know what the “list” is, right?  So I’m still undecided about doing that one since there are a lot of people who could and would be affected if I was to name names or get too detailed.  None of my present company (damn it! – I’ve been on good behavior for way too long), but many others that I know and interact with on occasion.  So I’m not sure if I’ll do it or maybe just an abbreviated version of it or what? Let’s see what my other options are.  We reach into teh box and I have pulled out “dogs” and “materialistic people”.  This is going to be a sucky-ass blog. I can already feel it.  So I guess that “the list” stays in order to salvage the rest.  Oh vey! Let’s do this…

Thirty Days of Dougie – Part 29:  Materialistic People, Dogs and The List

January 30, 2013

We’ll start off with dogs.  They are loyal.  They bark.  They crap.  And they will bite you in the ass if you threaten their family or masters (or if they’re just hungry and you smell like a cheesebuger).  I’m not a dog person.  Sorry about that.  Beautiful animals and great pets and friends, but Dougie just don’t do deet!  Arf! Arf!

Then we have materialistic people who are, simply put, just freakin’ greedy.  You don’t need everything and anything.  Don’t try to own everything.It doesn’t make you happy or better than anyone else.  And if you don’t need it, get rid of it because someone else might and if you’re hanging on to it and not using it and someone else actually needs it, let them have it. You won’t miss it and it could make all the difference in the world to them. You can’t take anything with you when you die and sooner or later, we are all gonna die (except for Willie Nelson, Abe Vigoda and Betty White).  So quit being greedy and share when you can.  Materialistic people with their “me, me, me” attitudes – they piss me off.  ‘Nuff said! 

And now, we have the one I don’t want to do.  It’s “The List”.  But it came from the Magic Box and I’m obligated so…

I think we’ve all done this at some point in our lives.  Usually it’s when we’re sitting around, bored and slightly depressed and in a reflective mood, trying to figure out how we got to this particular point in our lives.  And we start thinking about the people we’ve been with and sooner or later, unless you’re still a virgin or were very protected / isolated, a pencil and paper comes out and we end up making a list.

I’ve done it a couple of times in my life and well, I wasn’t really shocked, but I think most people might be, considering the image I present and give to the world.  Should I give you the numbers?  Nope, I’m not going to do that, but I will say that the number of females I have been intimate with is in double-digits and the number of men that I have been more than hug-friendly with is in the triple-digits.  Yeah, I had a few years there where I was a bit of a total slut-hole.  Not proud of those years, but just saying it like it was.  

And if the guy looked good (or if I was drinking), then most likely something would get to happening. Happily for me, things have changed a bit and while I still can and will talk crap with the best of them (innuendo rules), I”m not so likely to jump their bones (or boner) anymore.  I know now who I want to be with and I’m just having to wait things out for that.  Everyone else is fun to be with, hang out with, and yes, occasionally talk dirty with (the reactions are usually pretty funny to observe), but I’m proud to say that I’ve gone from a “touch everything” life to a “look and appreciate, but no touchy allowed” lifestyle.  It’s a bit lonely sometimes, but the whole sleeping around with anything that has an erection isn’t for me anymore.  That was a younger (and unhappier) man looking for acceptance no matter what it took.  I’ve got all of that now, as well as a man who loves me and some great friends who love and accept me as I am as well.  I have nothing to prove to anyone and despite that I was (and am) the best there is at certain things since Linda Lovelace, it just ain’t happening that much anymore.

So anyhow, I look at the list and I realized several things.  One is that I was lucky to not get any diseases.  But I didn’t and I’ve been tested many, many times and I’m still clean so that’s a blessing.  The other thing is that when Dougie turned on the charm, there were few guys I couldn’t get if I tried.  I was that damn good!  Hell, I am that damn good!  Ask your boyfriend – he knows!  WHAM!  That was always one of my favorite comebacks (and only partially true – I don’t do boyfriends… much.)  I prefer husbands  – less drama for me to deal with that way. 

Yeah, I had a hell of a run for a long, long time. And no regrets about any of it, not even Danny or Pa.  I met some good people and most of whom are still friendly and on good terms today. We had fun and then moved on, which is how things should be.  The List might be long, but the lessons learned, the people encountered and the memories are long too. And all in all, was all of it worth it?  You betcha!

I’m gone for today.  Back tomorrow with Part 30 as the “Thirty Days of Dougie” comes to an end… maybe!  Have a great one.
