Grace of charity

I was sitting in a café, reading a magazine and drinking a cup of coffee, when I heard a familiar voice. “Hey, Alex!”

I looked up. “Simon! Good to see you!”

The 23 year old boy was wearing dark blue trousers, a white shirt, a blue tie and a slipover, looking very geeky and very hot...

“Do you mind if I sit?” he smiled at me, pointing at the chair opposite me.

I smiled and put my magazine away.

Simon sat down and took off his horn rimmed glasses.

“How are you?” I said. “We haven’t seen each other for quite some time…”

Simon smiled and we talked for a while.

After ten or fifteen minutes, he changed the subject. “There’s a reason I wanted to talk to you. Chad told me you were here, so I figured…”

“Sure”, I said.

“You know, I watched TV the other day and they had this show where everybody could donate money to charity”, Simon said. “And I thought, well, why don’t we do something like that?”

I looked at him. “Donate money to charity?”

Simon shrugged. “We could have something like, you know, a charity nutshot festival. It could be a big thing. And all the money we get from the audience will be donated.”

I thought about that. “I like your idea.”

Simon smiled. “We could do some games. We could ask Danny, the twins, Cal, Kev, Ben, Leo and Tristan, Zach, Sammy, George – you know, all the guys…”

I nodded slowly. “Yeah, sounds good.”

“We could do it in November and December”, Simon continued, obviously excited that I liked his idea. “That’s when the people like to give money away for a good cause.”

We talked about his idea for a while.

After half an hour, he looked at his watch. “Oh, I gotta go.”

I smiled at him. “It’s a great idea. Thanks for telling me.”

Simon smiled proudly. “Sure. See you!”

He walked out the café.

lol, seems random....

Alex said...

Yeah, well, I guess you are right... :-)
I don't quite know where to go with it, so I was counting on you to help me...
Maybe I'll have to think harder... :-))

Honestly, as popular as nutshots are you'd think we'd have this.kind of thing im real life. Line some celebs up on chinko machines and when people donate enough money, WHAM, right in the balls.
I know I'd pay a bit of money to see my favorite celebs get their nuts knocked around.
But that's more of a fantasy than an actual suggestion, I don't think it'd make a great story.
Can't wait to see what you came up with though.

Oh yeah, someone should suggest it to One Direction... Judging from their on-stage antics they'd probably jump at the chance to take their places on the chinko machines... :-))
