In Memory of Kay Kim's Blogs

FLIRTING WITH ANTONIO


 

~Dedicated to Kay Marie whom gives me massive-  mad – miraculous- material
for my essays, blogs & poetry.

I wrote Flirting With Antonio  (An absolutely TRUE story ) on May-2009/ Skirt Magazine.  Here is another essay about Kay

{Yes, this is how it used to
be before my mourning, lamenting, weeping, missing, missing, fucking missing…}

 

 

I steal segments of my sister’s
life. Sorry about that, Sis, but my muse perks up and does jumping jacks
because of your experiences, mishaps, and ridiculous misfortunes. In other
words, you crack me up.

My partner in crime is my sister,
Kay. During one of our gatherings at a  Grandma’s Sports Bar, Antonio Banderas was our
waiter. I’m not kidding you. I had no idea this man waited tables in between
his Zorro films and Melanie Griffith. Regardless, here comes Antonio with his
saucy, sexy, seductive self to take our orders, and we’re giggling like
fourteen year old girls…

“Oh isn’t he cute? Isn’t he adorable? He’s
hotter than hell and young enough to be our..…I will not finish that sentence.
And how dare you ask, biatches.

So Kay is batting her eyes like one
of those cartoon characters with the oversized lashes; Betty Boop or something.
“I’ll have a salad with the dressing on the side,” she purrs, staring up at him
like Bambie on crack. And I say loudly…

“Tell him what you really waaaaaant!”

Antonio
stands there grinning gorgeously, and his teeth, I swear to god, are sparkling
and shining like dripping pearls; his skin is velvety milk chocolate, and his
hair is pulled back into the most luscious black pony tail I’ve ever witnessed.
It surges down his back like a dark water.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.    Meoooooooooooow.   Ohhhhhlaaaalaaaa.

Sometimes words escape a woman. Yes,
it’s true.

After I take all of him in, I
repeat, “Tell him what you really waaaaant.”

Kay looks at me with one of those
“I’m-going-to-friggen-kill-you-when-we-leave-here-looks” and says sweetly- in
her Kay voice…. “And what do I want, Kimmie?”

“Onion rings, silly, or perhaps
something else a little more  spiiiiicy.”

I begin roaring, snorting, and
clapping my hands together like one of those monkeys with the tambourine.

When Antonio speaks, we are
surprised he doesn’t have a Spanish a accent. You know, the sort of dialect
that spills sex all over the table. Damn it, with that face, it just seems
wrong as hell to be from, well,  Minnesota.

Anyway, when we go out, we usually
dress up. I mean, it’s an excuse to wear four inch heels, dark eyeliner, and
paint ourselves pretty. Kay has this braided hairpiece she inserts sometimes
for a little oomph, a little umph, a little Bridget Bardot. It‘s quite hip. In
fact, this reminds me, I’ve been meaning to get one of those hair pieces in blonde,
just to see if blondes have more fun.

Seriously, one time I sprayed my
entire head blonde with some of those Revlon color cans to surprise my husband.
I had to use three entire cans, and when I open the front door to let him in,
he stares at me, his brain calculating who the hell I was cause he’s used to
dark haired chicks. He finally says ,(( TINA TURNER?))

Men drive me toooooooootally insane.

Okay, back to Our Antonio. (Isn’t
that a book?)

So we’re waiting for our onion rings
and artichoke dip, chatting ever so lovingly about Antonio’s tight ass, his
full lips, and how we’d like to kiss him reeeeal badly, when quite suddenly….
there he is standing with his delectable darkness appearing all awkward and
tongue tied.

“Ex-ex-cuse me, ladies, but—but—
does this item belong to any of you?” He is holding his silver serving tray up
towards us with his beautiful brown hand and Kay and I tilt our heads to peek
inside.

What could it possibly be? Is he
giving us his phone number, his address, the key to his heart?

We begin laughing and howling like
crazy women. We cannot stop. It is too much to handle, too make to take in.

Upon Antonio’s tray, arranged like a
furry little squirrel, like some damn road kill scooped off the highway 61– is
Kay’s braided hairpiece. And my sister being her cool, confident self– points
to the table across from us and asserts, “I think it belongs over there.”

 

——Dear, Reader,  do you have a soul-mate?  If so, could you live without her/him?

My Sister & Soul-mate was murdered by Mike Peterson on May 26, 2010.   I miss miss miss her.  I miss those carefree days.  I miss the very essence of her.  Mourning never ends…

    Too, too funny! I can just see the two of you howling with laughter over a hairpiece laid out on his tray. You know who my soul mate is. While I could live without him, I don’t want to try that; the light would dim in my life.

    O.M.G. The escaped squirrel. The only thing worse would be accidentally dropping a feminine sanitary product – super PLUS, for Antonio to retrieve.

    I think, poor kid. Then again, maybe it’s what he deserves for being sexy AND waiting tables in Minnesota in between making movies. I mean, REALLY, what does Antonio expect? (You did leave a big tip, I hope.)

    🙂 I can just visualize it! Giggle! Antonio Banderas. Sigh. You do get to meet all the super-sexy types no? Hmm. I like Andy Garcia too. And while we’re at it, let’s throw in Robert De Niro! (he just had a birthday – Aug 17) And how can I forget Al Pacino. Ok, so I am in love with the Mafia.- I am crazy about The Godfather series.

    Soul mates. Yes, Kim. I have mine. I’ve lost mine. I cannot live without them. But I can exist. And it hurts so bad sometimes to feel the vacuum.

    Hugs! i am waiting for your book, Kim! I love you more than the thirty deer gambolling on the grass.

    As I learn about the type of antics you two conjured, I’m wondering how your mom and dad managed. Did their hair turn white prematurely? Did they have to visit the guidance counselor frequently – for their own personal treatments? Did they ever sleep? Oh wait, I know…they had GPSs implanted on the two of you. With microphones! 😀

    Love you to pieces, Kim. Your heart gives off so much love, so much compassion.

      Amy———— I didn’t know much about GPSs when Kim & Kay were much youngere
      younger, or i would have implanted both of them with a microphone.
      About the counselor, I thought about it. But i have to amit, we did sleep sometimes. I could tell you much more about them but i don’t have enough
      space to write it all. I love both of them with all my heart.

    haha, priceless!!! I love how Kay coolly says “It belongs over there” and laughed out loud at “Damn it, with that face, it just seems wrong as hell to be from, well, Minnesota.”

    Nothing better than having a partner in crime, someone to be stupid with. My friend, Suzanne, is like this for me. We went to a book launch on Saturday and she spent the entire time pulling down her polyester dress and pulling up her tights. Every time I looked in her direction she was pulling something. Bad case of electricity I think, though not the Antonio kind.

    I don’t have a soul mate, a runny buddy and my sister and I are not close at all. As a matter of fact, I often question if she was switched shortly after birth. Yeah, I know… It’s kind of sad really.

    Oh well, I do have my dog! 😉

      Dear A,
      I wasn’t the REAL Antonio….He is MUCH OLDER than us!! HAA.

      But it did look like his YOUNGER son.

      Yes. Dogs can be soulmates!!! Xxxx

    I don’t think I can find anything original to add that hasn’t been said above ( the comments are ones to cherish, Kim). You two have some a strong bond, which shows up in all your writing. It’s part love, part sisterhood, part family, part best friends. You are indeed blessed my sweet woman.

    That is too funny. I bet the two of you were a blast to go out with. As far as soulmates go….I no longer have one and I don’t see me ever having one again.

    Oh my goodness! I was doing my best not to laugh out loud because it is only 4am here and the whole world is still sleeping! This was so wild and hilarious!!! LOL I soo enjoyed reading this! I and my sister still love reminiscing and laughing about all our crazy moments. Nothing in the world can ever replace the bond between sisters. <3

    Grateful for your sister for leaving such happy memories for you to share with us, Kim. Take care and God bless <3 🙂

    What a great story. I would have died from embarrassment. And you sister kept her cool and came up with a great reply. I have a sister too. It has crossed my mind what if something happened to her — but my thoughts were always something like a illness or accident. Nothing like your loss. I’m so sorry and loved reading about the laughter you shared.

    Memories that bring laughter and smiles are the best. Keeping her close and safely in your heart. What a great time that evening was, you can tell how connected you both were and how easily you could play off one another!!

    I love my eyeliner/high heel nights out when I get to flirt with servers half my age. Point taken about hair pieces, though! There are a few girls that I just could not live without – the ones where you have those unspoken conversations? So lucky to have those soul mates as you have described them.

    I love the way you write of your sister. It seems a precious precious relationship you had. God, it makes you question why some things happen some ways.

    All of the good times you had, are just what it should be like.

    Bless you both. You honour her beautifully.

    Kim, this post made me squeal! Squeal, I tell you! I love, love, love Antonio Banderas! How I wish I had been with you and Kay this day. I also love to read about this happy time with your sister. The love that shine through is phenomenal. I think it’s fair to say that both you and your lovely sis are the perfect example of sisterhood. As I read through your post, I imagined every one of Kay’s actions just as you described them. Oh, to be a fly on the wall that day! This story needs to make its way into your memoirs–although something tells me it’s already there! Loved this post, my friend! Hugs to you from Roxy and me! 🙂
