Pre-empting my arrival on the Northampton gay scene

I rang Mike earlier to catch up. And to see if his head hurted from a late night out last night. It did.

Mike: So, have you checked up on what the scene has to offer?
Me: Yes, I've looked on the web. There seems to be two or three venues. No great shakes but I said the same about Nottingham before I went there. So, they could be fun.
Mike: You'll walk in on your first night and some old queens will look up from their drinks, 'She's new', turn away and carry on drinking. Next time you go in, there'll be an almost imperceptible flick of the head, 'Her again.' (*)

No, Mike, it won't be like that at all. This is how it will go:

First night: 'He's new...phwoar!'
Next night: 'Hey, he's back...pwhoar!'

(*) Correction:
Mike, you are quite right - It wasn't 'She's back', 'Her again' it is. Sounds much better that way, of course.

Its always good to arrive on a gay scene as a fresher.
No reputation, no ex's and no lack of choice.

But with only "two or three venues" you could find you've exhausted your supply by the end of the week!

Perhaps that's why I keep moving from town to town. :-)

No, not "she's back"...

..."Tsk, her again."
