I am full of tragic mistakes. I’ve lived the better part of my life making some of the worst decisions known to man. I’m pretty much recording the highlights here. But the great thing about being young and stupid is that I’m not done creating new stories. It’s fun recounting the dumb shit I did in high school and college and grad school and the states I’ve lived in since then, but sometimes it’s also fun to recount the unbelievable situations I’m getting myself into this minute.

Women always seemed surprised by my actions even when they had heard from friends what would happen.

I live in a sparsely populated neighborhood adjacent to the vineyard I work at. There are a few other houses near the vineyard, but I’m the only one that lives and works there. But the people I’ve met there are really great. I get along with them and likewise, they get along with me. We’ll hang out on the weekends and typically drink more than adults should, but what the hell, we live at a vineyard.

As I’ve met more people in the neighborhood, there are some that I’ve become good friends with and some that seem to like the fact that they live far from people and don’t want to get to know me. The few friends I have in the neighborhood, I hang out with on occasion, either having bonfires, going to concerts, or just getting together for drinks from time to time.

About a year ago, I met this girl, The Neighbor, who is a few years younger than me who lives about 5 houses and a half a mile from my house. She was next door and I ran in to her while she was outside. Introductions were made and that was it. I had been dating a girl for about 2 years at the time who we’ll call The Genius. And The Neighbor had a boyfriend of maybe 2 and a half years. She was smoking hot, but then so was my girlfriend, so there wasn’t much to think about. But I’d see her from time to time and we’d talk more and more, getting to know each other better. Somehow, every time I ran into her, my girlfriend and her boyfriend were both doing something else, so we always ended up talking one on one.

I think this week I’ll go with a series of stories about rape. I’m not a monster. In these stories, I was the victim every time. Sometimes more willingly than others, but in all cases, the women were stronger than me and pretty much dictated the evening.

Women always seemed surprised by my actions in the end.

I figure, what better way to tell these stories than chronological order. So, journey with me back to happier times, High school. When nothing mattered, my bills were mostly paid for, and all I really had to focus on was picking up chicks and then getting as far as I could with them. This objective, while sometimes taken to extremes, is still pretty much the focus of my life.

So, this particular time, I was a junior in high school and as usual, was out hanging with my friends. There wasn’t much going on, but nobody really wanted to go home early.

I had a friend who was an incredible fuck up. He was maybe 18 (I was 17) but he was already living in an apartment, kicked out of his parents’ house because he was constantly getting arrested, beat up, or asking them for money to pay for abortions. Clearly, when nothing else is happening, this is the guy you call. If for no other reason than if you sit there long enough, something will go down. As long as you stay out of it, you’ll be entertained.

We show up at his place and it’s like 10:30. It was me and three other guys who went over there. I swear to you, the evening started innocently enough – so innocent that I was drinking milk.
