Sunday February 28th and I’m out in Covent Garden yet again. Moran is really keen to get some in-field footage now that we’ve figured out an easy way to mic up so he drags me and Suave along for the ride. Not that I mind. We have a coffee and test the equipment but before long Moran is chomping at the bit. He’s walking down the street punching the air and jumping around, building state. It brings our state up with it. It’s not long till he’s launching into set and number closes a 2-set of blondes sheltering from the rain under umbrellas.
I’m mic’d up too so we are swapping the one video camera between us. I only do three sets but I get them all recorded. I get an excellent 15-minute set with HB8 Bengali. Actually to me she’s a 9 – exactly what I look for: 20 yrs old, dark colouring, slim, smiley. I hook big so I have fun trying a few things. Ten minutes before that I facebook close HB6 Chinese at the food count of M&S – not my usual location for opening. Sandwiched inbetween (pardon the pun) is a really cute HB8 Brit but that doesn’t hit at all. I catch eye contact with her outside M&S and by the time we’ve got the video running we’ve lost sight of her inside. I scour the ground floor and when I finally see her upstairs everything is wrong – she’s in the women’s underwear section (perv alert!), I’ve clearly been stalking her (perv confirmation!) and by then my energy is right down again. She humours me and sends me packing.
Don’t care. When the three of us pause for coffee I’m claiming victory on my Bengali set. Suave soon hits his stride. We are chatting about game and there’s a nice Brit girl seated in one of the sofa chairs behind us, reading. Suave is talking about some Argentinian girl he day-2ed back in Brazil over Christmas who he’s got on a Facebook maintenance holding pattern. She’s a romantic type and Suave reckons she’s falling in love. Naturally, I comment that means she’ll probably let Suave be the first to do her up the arse.
The girl behind hears. Not ten minutes later Suave opens her with the smoothest of situational openers, joins her, and walks away with her number soon after we’ve finished our coffees. He then rattles off another close on a cute Eastern European outside. To round off the day, my text game with the Mexican from Monday is hitting off and we set up a day 2.
