Taking the Piss

‘I hear you’re a tough guy’
Eddie said as we stood at
the urinals;
‘That’s bullshit’
I said grinning
‘I’m the toughest’
Eddie finished and zipped-
up and waited for me,
I finished,
zipped-up
walked over to the basin
washed my hands
looking at Eddie in the
mirror,
he stood still
watching me,
I turned around to face
Eddie
‘You going to wash your
hands Eddie?’
I asked
‘Fuck no’
Eddie said
‘Then don’t ask me for a
dance later’
I said grinning
Eddie laughed
nervously and then
said
‘I don’t dance’
‘Well, fuck-you’
I said
and waited for his move;
he stepped over to the
wash basins and
washed his hands and
said looking at me
‘Maybe later’
‘Maybe’
I said.
