Pamper-Her-Friday by Rg2® 280: The Invitation, A Love Letter

Intimacy dine

 

Inland Empire, Calif.–2:18 a.m. PST, Pamper-Her-Friday:

Dear ________,

Might you be the perfect stranger?

Might I be the most imperfect friend, intriguingly?

I was confident in my ask for your company over lunch–just enough to expect a “no, thank you.” Rejection, or, rather, a soft decline, has more than one definition. It’s rarely permanent . . . when a woman has the benefit of time. Mind time; heart time; thought time.

Printing my number instead of asking for yours is less than chivalrous, perhaps. But doesn’t it provide you a harmless out, in the event you lack the interest on further thought?

There’s little worse than a man contacting a woman who simply doesn’t want to be bothered. The “out” is yours. The soft decline is absolutely in your purview, your prerogative.

But so is the “in.”

My father once deposited in my ear, “You never know who you’re going to meet in this life . . . you may just be her sigh.”

Have you ever sighed after dinner . . . with the perfect stranger?
Well, the number’s not gonna dial itself. The text is certainly not gonna send itself. Either proposition is the ideal “out.” Sure enough.

But, gosh, there’s curiosity in the “in.” No?

It’s your prerogative.

I’m not a botherer. I certainly won’t bother you.

Unless you want to be.

To quote a wise man, We just never know who we’re gonna meet in this life, do we?

She may just be the perfect stranger.

So, too, may he.

Gosh.

Invitationally,
Rg2

“For Her: Shoes and Shares”

Hey, angel, I was made privy to some timely news
regarding your NBA crush, Steph Curry,
The silky shooter’s being handsomely rewarded:
His knack for swishing 3s in a flurry

With deadly accuracy and the quick release
Perhaps the sweetest stroke in the game,
“The Baby-faced Assassin” is his moniker
No other’s worthy of the legendary name

When he felled “The King” and his courtiers
The Finals showcased his warriors’ prevail,
The soft-spoken golden boy from the golden state
Arrived on the grandest stage to tell

The countless sweat hours in a lonely man’s gym
Can test the will, not to mention fatigue,
But a thin, wiry kid with a shot so pure
Can prove he belongs in a big man’s league

Under Armour took notice and liked what it saw
While the mighty Nike corners market share,
Steph chose a player’s court with fewer sneaker marks
A shrewd business move with lots of fruit to bear

A new, seven-year deal for the son of Dell
With added bonus: A brand equity stake,
When sales go up, so too will his stock
The ankle-breaker shows a corporate head fake

A company more known for its athletic apparel
Has aimed its gauntlet toward basketball shoes,
And with the great Misty Copeland in its stable of gems
Investors are wise to pay attention to the news

Ah, which brings me to the pampering part . . .
No doubt it’s my favorite Friday theme,
Upon thorough review of its balance sheet
I’m making you part of the Under Armour Team:

This afternoon your sneakers will arrive
With a selection of new athletic gear,
Lace ‘em up tight so I can get you on the court
And ready yourself for the game of the year

But first, check your online trader’s account
The Under Armour shares were added today,
Yes, I’m thinking of you with a long-term view
My investment thesis is Pamper-Her-Friday.

“She Left Her Earrings”

You left your earrings a couple nights before
They lay there as if to adorn my desk,
The first and only pair abandoned by the owner
My creative scripture turns picturesque

Can you mind-see the visual as it shapens?
My only ask is that you close your eyes,
It matters not that I am without your presence
You’re not a woman given to lies

They have ethics, those tender mirrors of yours
Integrity is projected through their lens,
Was it an act of provocation to leave them there . . .
Should I preempt your explanation as it begins?

To leave such an item in a man’s vicinity
They, alone, betray hardly an effect,
But when remnant rises of skin once touched
Awakened is the content of his intellect

Mail them I could’ve to the beautiful leaver
Considered the option of overnight express,
A little deeper, however, was an inherent invite
That night was sleepless, woman, I confess

Visions of the way you would tilt your head
Art-like in how you’d prepare each lobe,
Despite my aversion to any body piercings
How intimate it was to prod and probe

What is it about my being puncture-free
that has you just a bit more curious?
Might there be a traditional strain to you . . .
Wanting nothing to approach me injurious?

I suspect I like it, were I to speak my truth
Territorialism in my world has its place,
Short of extreme there’s attraction in the claiming
A nice foundation when true caring forms the base

You left your earrings a couple nights before
They lay there as if to haunt me all the while,
I’ll return them on only one condition:
Join me tonight . . . on the Nile.

It’s Pamper-Her-Friday, Love.

“My Cinderella Tonight”

Some of the most exciting moments of a woman’s life?
When she’s readying herself for a date,
Your girlfriend says you shouldn’t be so giddy?
Tell her to find her own . . . and keep the hate

If I have my way tonight, woman, you will be envied
So, prepare yourself for the eye onslaught,
Men will dare a peek as women chance a seek
At the stunning dress and the shoes I bought

By no means am I advertising you, Love
In no way are you a trophy on display,
Ballers and cold-callers may need the validation
But my public affirmation is on permanent delay

For I didn’t ask you out for superficial reasons
Though you handily passed the first-take test,
Mmmm, you are hands-down a mirror’s delight
I couldn’t have chosen a more perfect dinner guest

Our Pamper-Her-Friday agenda, you ask?
Well, let’s just say everything’s been handled,
But for starters, my driver has his orders for 7
Delivering the Cinderella slippers and scented candle

I ask that you light it momentarily before leaving
Then douse, as the fragrance will linger,
The perfume your beloved father would gift you . . .
I remembered the scent, is it a dead-ringer?

Yes, I had the organics chemist concoct it
Created to exact specification–in your honor,
Now, try on the shoes, Oh! it’s gotta be the shoes
I covered it all, angel, I left nothing to ponder

The driver will escort you to the tarmac
On the crest of the just-debuted Rg2 Tower,
The luxo-copter will whisk us into the sunset
The symphony begins at the top of the hour

And we’ll take to the nostalgic ferris wheel
at the venerable Los Angeles County Fair,
I saw the wonderment in your eyes at mention
About that still-innocent girl in you I care

Because the most exciting moments of a woman’s life
are those that simply take her breath away,
Tonight feels like one of those storied nights
Why, of course, it’s Pamper-Her-Friday.
