GFI and I have acquired a new regular at Casa Cocktail (that’s my building — I just decided it needed a name for reference purposes). Well, we haven’t — Slick has. He’s got a new girlfriend. This while the seat on his old girlfriend’s bike that lives on the landing is still warm. But whatever, I’m not here to judge him on his relationship decisions. I’m here to mock his new girlfriend. Duh.
Let me give you a basic schematic of our building. If you’re looking at it from the front, I’m on the bottom right, GFI’s on top of me, Slick is to her left and downstairs from him, Nurse New York. So, we share walls, specifically that one main wall and ceiling/floor where all of our apartments connect. On our side of the wall, GFI and I have our bathrooms. On the other side? Slick and NNY have their respective bedrooms. You can see where this is going. Oh yeah.
Now, we never hear a peep from NNY. Once in a while I’ll hear her on the phone in her room, but usually she’s off being busy and nursey. However, Slick and his new girlfriend get downright National Geographic up in here! National. Geographic. It’s insane. GFI and I have dubbed her Project X because when she and Slick go at it, it sounds like caged chimps. Forty caged chimps.
One night on the terrace, GFI tells me that she had to brush her teeth in the kitchen because the thought that a mere 2-foot wall and a medicine cabinet was all that separated her from Slick’s grunting body was just too much to bear. Then, the next night, I could hear them going at it from the living room. When I went into the bathroom, it was like they were humping at the Hollywood Bowl it was so loud.
[insert chimp screams here]
I think last week, mikey came by and he came out of the bathroom saying, “Dude. You can hear your neighbor and his girlfriend going at it.” Oh yes, I’m aware. They seem to have no concept of time, which is fine. It’s monkeys in the morning, monkeys in the night, monkeys in the afternoon. (And yes, I know chimps aren’t monkeys.) Hey, I’m all for sex at any time of day. Spontaneity is fabulous… don’t get me wrong, but I try to keep in mind that perhaps the entire neighborhood doesn’t want to hear the result of “my O face”, as it were. And from what I understand, I also don’t sound like a B-grade Matthew Broderick movie.
It really doesn’t bother me all that much… I think it’s pretty funny, actually. Especially now that we have a good name for her. It makes it all that much more entertaining, but I know it’s bugging GFI. Their monkey love woke her from a dead sleep the other night… that’s no good. So I think next time we’re all out on the terrace, I’m going to warmly rib him about this new girlfriend and suggest that he move his bed to the opposite wall. Hint, hint. Nudge. Nudge.
Now, props to Slick. He’s either really good (which is just not something I wish to consider) or she’s been watching too much porn and needs to refine her faking technique, but either way, let a girl wash her face in peace, would ya? Sheesh!
