I was in my seat on an airplane in between two very attractive women. Yet, I was unable to talk them. My breath stank, and I reeked of booze, smoke, desperation, fat girl spit, and body odor. Normally, I would have started a little, coy conversation in effort to see if there was a connection but not this time. This time, I sat in silence brooding on the foul odor that had been cast upon my body. God was just; I was being punished for the sins I had committed the previous night.
My Ranger buddies and I had spent two weeks in late October 2008 on a training trip in Fort Bragg. After doing our military training for the day, we spent nearly every night of those two weeks getting hammered beyond reason or recourse. It was our last night in North Carolina, and we decided to have one final hurrah before heading back to Washington. “Jonathan” and I tried to rally up a bunch of the guys to go out but most rejected the idea knowing that we had an early morning flight to catch. We were able to get a humble group, “Blitzy, ”“Tiburón,” “Jonathan,” and I to go out.
We rode through the mean streets of Fayetteville to Doghouse Bar & Grill. The place was refreshingly different from the typical bars you see outside military bases. The amount of high and tights with off-duty soldiers wearing their dog tags outside their t-shirts as a fashion accessory was kept to a minimum. Typical of Southern bars, there was a cloud of cigarette smoke that engulfed the whole place. There was a live band playing country music with cheap beers and a decent female to male ratio.
Since I always keep my head on a swivel looking for attractive women to hit on and promptly get rejected by, I noticed there was only one really hot chick in the whole entire place. Our drinks came and we made a toast to the good times and to 2/75. I kept my eye on the hot chick and noticed that she was eye-fucking the singer the whole time. After he completed one of the songs, she went up to kiss him passionately. With that kiss, went my one percent chance at success with the only hot chick. It looked like hitting on the bountiful subpar chicks of the bar were the conditions I was going to operate under.
I was drinking my alcohol at a respectable rate in order to boost my courage levels, so I could actually approach women. While these days I am able to hit on a chick like nothing, back then, I still needed a good helping of alcohol to get myself to talk to one at a bar. The alcohol began to set in, ever so gently, taking over my psyche. Liquid courage had been spliced with my blood. I targeted a table made up of fuckable, but unimpressive looking women. I went over and begun speaking to one about witty and charming subject matter that surely sparked her interest. After a couple of minutes, the rest of my buddies decided to join the table. One guy in particular, Blitzy, began to hit it off with one of a generic looking chicks. Eventually, the girls tired of me, and I went back to sitting at the bar alone. Blitzy was forming a true spiritual connection with the generic chick.
All the guys except for Blitzy rejoined me at the bar and we continued toasting and drinking. A couple more drinks in, I locked eyes with a woman who was in the late stages of being a cougar and in the early stages of being a sabertooth. She smiled at me, I sat there frozen not sure what to do.
Raul: “That chick is looking at me.”
Jonathan: “Go for it.”
Raul: “But she’s really old.”
Jonathan: “So? Women like that will show you some crazy-ass shit that you can only dream of.”
Jonathan: “Yeah man.”
I walked up to her and begun flirting with her all awkwardly because I wasn’t sure how the fuck I supposed to hit on an older woman. She was a dirty blonde, with rough skin conditioned by many a decade spent in smokey bars, and had a cigarette in her mouth. I don’t recall what we talked about or what poor excuse of seductive language I used to get her to the point of holding my hand. She pulled me close and said:
Older Woman: “You’re really cute; you should come home with me.” She squeezed my hand and places it on her thigh.
Raul: “Uh… I can’t… I have to stay here with my buddies. They’re my ride.”
Older Woman: “I’ll make sure you won’t forget it.”
Raul: “I can’t; I’m sorry.” I gave her a hug and walked back.
I’ll make no excuses about it. I pussed out because I was really intimidated by this older woman even though she wasn’t that attractive.
I rejoined my buddies and was mocked for having fucked it up with the almost-sabertooth. While my little frolic with older temptation occurred, it seemed that Blitzy had truly formed a one-of-a-kind connection with the generic chick. He went about consummating their one-in-a-million love by fucking her doggy-style in the back seat of the van while she stuck her head out the window vomiting.
We continued to drink and were inebriated to the point where we sang along with the band. All morals and standards were being slain by the alcohol demon. Then she appeared, a pale-skinned woman, with dark hair, and humongous breasts. She was like Snow White, if Snow White was about 100 pounds heavier. I didn’t care; I walked up to her.
Raul: “Let me guess, you’re drinking a Jack and Coke?”
Snow Fatty: “No, it’s a Rum and Coke, but good guess.”
Raul: “I like rum and Coke, let me have a taste,” I took a sip out her drink, “Not bad.”
I introduced her to my buddies, and we were introduced to her shady looking friend “Daringer.” I got close to her and heavily flirted, touching her here and there. Fully aware that I was way above her league, I knew it was all a matter of playing the waiting game before my dick would be slaying her orifices. Eventually, the bar began to close and Blitzy wanted to go back to the motel. I asked the Snow Fatty if she could give us a ride to the airport the next morning, and she agreed to do so. Snow Fatty, Tiburón, Jonathan, and I all piled into Daringer’s shitty little sedan.
We arrived at the mobile home park she called home. She and I immediately headed to the bedroom. I did my standard operating procedure of shoving her on the bed, positioning myself on top of her, and kissing her, all the while firmly squeezing her huge breasts. I began to undress her, and that’s when the magnitude of the situation hit me. Her clothes, albeit not well, hid how fat she truly was. I had estimated a 100 pounds overweight Snow White, not a grotesque 150 pounds overweight Snow White. I made the executive decision not to fuck her, instead opting to get my dick sucked until I nutted.
I straddled on top of her, had her support her head on the pillow, and began thrusting full force into her throat. She stopped me at some point and wanted to fuck. I told her that I don’t have a condom and luckily, she didn’t have any laying around either. I continued until I busted in her hair.
I came out of the bedroom and Tiburón was passed out on the couch. Jonathan and Daringer were nowhere to be found. It was nearly 4 a.m., and our flight was to leave at 7 a.m. I called Jonathan up, and he told me that he went to get some cocaine with Daringer. Since they were my only ride, I began to panic a bit, but then decided that most practical solution was to sleep until they returned.
At 6:15 a.m. I was awoken by the pounding of the door and my buddies voices. I scrambled to my feet and scoured the floor for my shoes. “Felix, we have to go man! Lieutenant Snuffy keeps on calling Sergeant Tiburón, and he’s fucking pissed,” yelled Jonathan. Fuck! I finished getting dressed, and we all piled into the car. We were about 20 minutes away from the airport as Daringer drove us as quickly as his little jalopy could take us. Every five minutes en route, Lieutenant Snuffy called Tiburón to get a status report on where the fuck we were at.
At 6:35 a.m. we arrived at the airport. We stumbled out of the car and right before we were going to run off the Snow Fatty asked me, “You’re going to come back one day right? You got my number.” I smiled at her and said, “Of course,” and gave her a reassuring hug and ran off to the check-in. One of our buddies was on stand-by with our bags, and we checked in. We got through security rather quickly and ran to the gate where we met up with Lieutenant Snuffy and the rest of the men. “I don’t want to hear any of you fucking idiots speak. I’m going to take care of this shit when we get back! Got it?” He yelled.
“Roger, Sir!” we all responded. We tried our best not to smile and giggle at the events that unfolded the previous night. We headed into the boarding gate, and Jonathan took out his phone and showed me a picture he took of Snow Fatty. “Ugh… that’s pretty gross,” I said with disappointment. We boarded the plane and I sat in between two lovely women. That’s when I noticed how horrible I must smell.
