Who is that Unmasked Man?


With the CDC dropping their requirement to wear masks outdoors and since I am now fully vaccinated, I decided I could take my mask offI walking up Market Street for a cup of joe. It was breezy and the sidewalk was very underpopulated, so it was to maintain more than a social distance, but I still felt like some subversive rebel, my fist raised high with a crumpled mask in it. Actually, it felt more like those dreams where you suddenly notice you’re naked. Oops. Mostly, my face was cold.

No one else out and about was naked faced, but no one particularly seemed to mind either. The lone notable exception was the lady who glanced at me and then pointedly scurried over to the very edge of the sidewalk to give me the most space possible. I may very well have been overly sensitive since it does seem difficult to scurry pointedly, but I was not in the mood for editorial remarks from other pedestrians. Yeah, go play in traffic, bitch.

Am I ambivalent? Oh, yeah, enthusiastically ambivalent, if that is possible. As some guy in the New York Times put it, “Nothing is changing, but it’s happening quickly.” Yet another piece of wisdom that should be destined for tee shirt immortality.

In other things that are not news, recently-ish, there was a bunch of youtube videos about people popping in and out from behind a blanket to confuse and concern their dogs. I guess the point being to prove they were smarter than the dogs. Congratulations. I decided to try it out on Saki. I held up the blanket he usually sits on my lap with and then played a quick round of peek-a-boo. Was he concerned I had somehow disappeared? Huh. Guess again. His whole attitude remained one of haughty disdain, as if he couldn’t decide whether to feel disgust or pity for me. I now realize that if I ever need to turn to him for an alibi, he will be worse than useless. “When was the last time you saw mrpeenee on the night of the murder?” the cops will demand. “Beats me. Which one is mrpeenee?”

Guys i’d like to play Clue with, in the library with the dildo:

I think this guy looks a lot like my dream version of Chris Meloni, who is pretty close to dreamlike to start with.

First up in our Bathing Beauty series tonight.

And then next to godliness, baby.

Finally, Mr. Wet Meat, tasting to see if he’s done.

Actually, beefiness may be next to godliness, now that I think about it. And I think about this a lot.

Eeks, a rhino. Better let me handle this.

About mrpeenee

A former bon vivant and terror of a number of New Orleans bars in the mad, gay 1980s, I'm now quietly retired and widowed in San Francisco. I have a crooked nose due to an unfortunate Frisbee accident.

  1. When you tried playing peek-a-boo, Saki might have been paraphrasing the tagline from old breakfast cereal commercials: “Silly Peenee! Tricks are for kids!”


  2. Saki is the reincarnation of W.C. Fields: “I am free of all prejudices. I hate everyone equally.”

    Having had my second jab today, I’m hungry – thank you so much for the Meat Platter! I’ll have a portion of #4, #6, and a double helping of #2 please. Jx
