Women and me
Now, going back to the memory lane, there is one more kind of funny story. This time, we were in Turkey, Ankara, for another sporting event.
This time, I was in the hallway of the competition venue and very distinguished looking gentleman with a beautiful young woman beside him stopped me and said: “Excuse me, Sir I am a doctor (I can’t remember his name), and here is my daughter and she would like to have dinner with you.
When would that suit you?
Again, red face, with my voice shaking I said: “I am sorry, but I don’t have time right now, I have to go and meet with our coach”.
I ran, again.
What a moron I was; all the lost opportunities and gorgeous women.
Damn, I remember another moment where I made a total fool of myself. I was on my way to the north by train, and I was waiting at the railway station. Suddenly, I saw one woman I met before when I was studying to become an instructor.
When she recognized me, her eyes went wide, and she gave me a hug. She said I looked great and I could only agree. I had a white blazer jacket, black trousers, and black shoes. I looked great, you know old “Miami Vice” style from the eighties.
Quite fast, we understood that we were going on the same train, and we decided to sit together. I was witty, charming and frankly speaking, I was just irresistible (but I didn’t know it at that time).
The sun started setting, and suddenly, she asked where I was planning to sleep, and as idiotic as I was, I said I will stay here and just study more. Then she suggested that she had her own cabin and I could just sleep there.
Again, as a true idiot, I refused and thanked her. She said goodnight and left. Suddenly, I realised what just happened! A beautiful woman asked me to sleep in the same cabin with her and I declined.
I was King of the idiots.
