NEVER LET TRUTH GET IN THE WAY OF A GOOD STORY# 2 - CASANOVA




I was a bit of a casanova at university in the '70s.
I had long curly hair and  a body like (I've told you before) Donatello's David.


I used to piss Richard off by regaling him with stories of my many girlfriends. Sometimes when we were sitting in the cafe I'd point some of them out to him. He was very jealous.

There was Veronica who was in an after hours course I took in Astrology taught by Garth Carpenter. She was stunning and an American.

Francesca was in my French class. I'm not sure what nationality she was but she wasn't a kiwi. She had a nice accent.

Robyn was in my English class. She had a model's looks. She was 2 years older than me so I was into older women then. I remember once nearly tipping my chair over in the library when she came up and talked to me. She put a hand out and rescued me. I was in love with her.

Leila was in my Constitutional Law class. Attractive and intelligent I blame here for a lowly grade as I couldn't stop looking at her.

(Unknown name) girl always sat in the library near where I would sit. I offered her a mint once which she accepted and smiled.

White Suit Girl didn't attend any lectures or tutorials that I did but our paths often crossed in the courtyards and corridors. I think that she was infatuated by me.

Marina was in my Education and Society course. She was lovely and always had a nice smile for me.

Angela was in one of my History courses. She was of Italian heritage and walked around barefoot. It turned out she was a friend of one of my future flatmates. Sadly she's passed on.

Sue was in my Environmental Geology class. I noticed her right from the start.

There were others but I don't want to piss Richard off again.

The Curmudgeon was actually a chick magnet in the 1970s. Under used though. Very much so.

In fact sex was a thing he never came close to. Good job that he played sport and drank wine.

THE CURMUDGEON said...

Thank you Richard.
Your input is much appre.....

Well, it's better than Robert's anyway.

THE CURMUDGEON said...

I made up for it in the late '70s and '80s.

BOTHERHOOD

Well Richard seemed to like my music suggestion in my previous post. I guess that means that he's open to suggestions and recomendations...
