who is that man? that watches E! hollywood as he walks?


who is that man whom i saw in the elevator of my building this evening? he was the same man i see every weekday at the gym. a stalky, muscle toned body gently pulses out of his black skin as he walks at a pace that seems to be a little faster than leisurely on the treadmill next to mine. he is always there before me, most times leaves after me and always is walking.

although we have seen each other every weekday since november, we had never spoken before this evening. he walked onto the elevator covered in a beautiful mink coat which flowed down to the floor and had a extra puffed up collar. covering his eyes were giant shades which sides were covered in sparkling diamonds. i looked at him and half smiled then i looked out the glass elevator onto the cityscape and wondered what this rock-star was up too.

"so, did you have a good work-out?" he said right after he unsurely looked at me.
"yeah. it was ok. so where you going? i asked.
"6th street, then maybe sushi rock." he said.
"cool. i've heard about 6th st. i just moved here, i dont really know about places yet."
"o yeah, 6th street has a lot of fun places. where'd you move from?"
"south beach,"i said.
i know he gave me a wierd look beneath his stylish sunglasses.
"um, you moved from south beach to here." he asked.
"um, yeah, not really sure why at the moment," and then the elevator door opened.
"well, 6th street is good," he said as we both exited.

this shades in the dark wearing rock-star makes me extremely happy. i've finally met someone in cleveland that doesnt seem boring this dude might actually blend into my past life of living with the exotics, sans mink coat of course!
