Preface: You might be surprised to find out that this entry has nothing to do with chain link, barbed wire, or Mexicans.
So I had a conversation not too long ago that centered around the song “Happy New Year” by Nat king Cole. As I sat in my father’s living room hearing this wonderful song come through the Bose sound system, I made the following comment to everyone in earshot;
“I would totally do Nat King Cole.”
And you know what I would! For starters he was one handsome ass man, with a devilishly charming smile. He had charisma, he was worldly, and that voice. That smooth, satin voice of his. There has never been another like it! I came to the conclusion that night that Nat King Cole is my fence guy.
Now of course people called me names (homo for one), but as I stated my case everyone understood where I was coming from. The women in the room all shut up because, as we all know, every woman has that one girl she’ll jump the fence for. (Some of you already have!) Now of the three men in the room, two were gay. This left only my friend Alex who afer some hesitation admitted that he would gladly jump the fence for George Lucas. As you may be able to tell, Alex is a huge Star Wars geek .
For the recored I feel much more comfortable having Nat King Cole as my fence guy than George Lucas, because Nat has passed on. Therefore I can rest easy knowing that there is no dude (that I know of) walking this earth who could inspire me to gayness. However, on the off chance that George Lucas meets Alex at a bar one day and pays for his appletini, Alex would be forced to find out what “the force” really means. So I’ll leave you all with this question.
Who would you jump the fence for? (Guys will answer if they are real men!)
