The Kid Who Jacked My Air Hockey Paddle

I think it’s a sign that I’m just not really meant to have kids! Between my mischievous ways, notorious travel habit, and sense of selfish irresponsibility, it’s probably just not going to happen. This past weekend, with my friend in town we headed out to Phnom Penh. The last ten days were just brutal so I really haven’t written as much as I liked. The ten day agenda went something like this — Angeles City – 2 days, Manila – 2 days – Saigon 3 days (1 day was rest) – Phnom Penh– 3 days. Each day was somewhere in the neighborhood of 15 shots of vodka (rest days not included).
I did my best to rally hard for Phnom Penh, being the end of the adventure with my friend from the US. We pretty much hopped every bar on streets 136 and 8 but just ended up at my usual spot, the 69 bar. I wish i could post my boys pic on line as he literally was getting a 10 hand massage (that’s 5 chicks for those of you still trying to get by 2nd grade math). I snuggled up with three of the same girls I hooked up with on my last trip. We bounced around for a bit, ended up back at 69 where I proceeded to bar fine 4 girls for $28 to head to the club. This time we checked out a “hi-so” club (my local buddy’s phrase for high society) called Platinum. Bottle of Smirnoff was still only $40. Other liquor was all pretty cheap as well. If you’re like me and enjoy clubs and the GFE(girl friend experience) the bar/bar fine/clubbing route is not a bad way to go.
Back to the kid… We were supposed to leave after two nights but the bus was packed and I was seriously hung over after two straight nights with the same agenda. On the way back to the Lux Riverside, I got a text from a girl by the name of Leak from the Rose bar. After lying in bed for 2 hours motionless, I decided some pizza with her and her sister was a good way to go. Be forewarned fellas who haven’t traveled much, girls from the bars look a LOT different when you meet them at night than they will when you see them the next day. Liquor, lighting and make up are a man’s worst enemies when it comes to scouting talent! We met up with the girls at Sorya mall and got a couple of pies at the Pizza Company. After that, the girls wanted to head upstairs and play some games. Another FYI — if you want to make an Asian girl happy, load up your iPhone with a bunch of games, suggest playing games at the mall, and have a nintendo wii back in your room! It all started out harmless enough with some air hockey. My friend played Leak’s sister and I just observed. After the first couple points, a small crowd of kids and adults had gathered around to watch this big ol black dude and tiny little Cambodian girl battle it out. When it was my turn to play, we got to just a couple points each when the puck slid off the table. The cute kid in the pic picked it up, set it back down, the proceeded to grab the paddle out of my hand. I looked across the table and, same same, his homie straight jacked my girl without a word being said… Gangsta. I thought about throwing down but my head was still buzzing from the night before and i really didn’t want to get my ass kicked by an 8 year old.
Next up was the roller coaster… well, sort of. The girls talked me into these $4 tickets to some “game” as they called it. I thought it was some crazy shooter or something and didn’t pay much mind, well, it was a damn roller coaster simulator! Drinking 8/10 nights and pizza is a BAD combination to pair up with a roller coaster simulator… 3 minutes later I was thanking the powers above that we were on the way back to the hotel to watch TV as she suggested. 3 sessions later, she was headed home in the morning and I was on the way to the car we rented and feeling much better! And… she didn’t even ask me for money! Amazing, there is love in the world. Being the nice guy I am I still dropped her a $50 and told her to buy her mom something cool.
Moral of the story, girls will like you a lot more if you actually have fun with them, even if that fun comes at the expense of your man hood being jacked away by an 8 year old!
