Don called me
I played golf with him a couple weeks ago
and he got my number.
I didn’t think he would call.
The guy at work who talks about playing golf
has given me the same load of crap for two years
but we haven’t gone out.
he was talking about how he had played golf with his friend.
He was trying to make me feel bad
that he continues with his charade.
Sometimes, you can never know, if what someone is telling you, is the truth
and sometimes, you can,
and that’s gold.
that he works at Amazon
that he is married
and he has kids.
When we passed the house on Number 11
he told me,
“The Asian lady who works behind the counter in the pro shop, lives there.”
“Really?” I asked.
“She must’ve won the lottery. That’s a 2-million-dollar home.”
“Her husband works for Microsoft.”
I didn’t tell him that I know the lady who lives in that house, and she’s not Asian.
He began to say stuff
and I knew, he was making it all up
which was amusing to me
“They got bass in that pond,” he said. “I’ve seen young boys fishing in it at night.”
By the time we finished the last four holes
he had lied a dozen times.
He told me that he had 6 million dollars of Amazon stock.
When I met him two weeks ago
he asked questions, like
“What do you do for work?”
“Do you live around here?”
Somebody told me once, that conmen are usually overweight
because they don’t want to do the work, on themselves.
“I was at the Kenny Chesney concert last week, with my friend. We snuck backstage, until the security guy threw us out,” he said.
I’ll probably play golf with him again.
He gets entertainment from telling lies
I get my entertainment from knowing
he tells lies.
It’s the perfect relationship.
