Alicia offered to help me with Boone, since he's the straight guy of the pack.
What she didn't know was that I was planning on having her help me figure out just how straight Boone is.
ALICIA: I'm so excited! I even made a lesson plan.
ME: Alicia, we're just going out for drinks with him.
ALICIA: Oh shoot! I forgot to put that in the plan.
Boone met us at a bar downtown, where Alicia revealed today's commandment.
ALICIA: You've got to stop only hanging around with women who want to sleep with you.
BOONE: That kind of limits my options to...hanging out with guys...straight guys...straight blind guys.
ME: Boone, if the only people around you want something from you, you're not experiencing real relationships.
BOONE: So how do we solve this?
ALICIA: We're taking you off the market for the night.
That's when Alicia slipped a fake wedding band on her finger--and Boone's.
BOONE: I think I can feel my finger burning.
While Alicia was hoping that Boone learned what life is like when women know you're off the table I was hoping Boone might set off Alicia's alarms.
Say what you want about the girl, but lately her gaydar has been on-point.
Two weeks ago...
ALICIA: That guy who just drove by us is gay.
ME: Um, I know him, Alicia.
ME: Well, he's--how did you know that?
ALICIA: After you date seventeen gay men, you learn a few things.
That night, Alicia and Boone made their way around the bar as a happy couple. For the first time, Boone found that he wasn't beating women away with a stick. Only a few stuck around to talk, meaning they might actually enjoy Boone's personality.
BOONE: Apparently, I'm not as rocking as I think I am.
ALICIA: Yes, you are. There are just an awful lot of people out there who are only looking for a quick fling.
ME: We're the ADD generation, Boone. It's not always pretty.
BOONE: Wait, you think we're in the same generation? Hahaha...
When Boone went to the bathroom, I took the opportunity to question Alicia.
ALICIA: So what?
ME: What do you think of Boone?
ALICIA: He seems nice.
ME: Anything...funny about him?
ALICIA: No, not at all.
ALICIA: Except that he's in the closet.
