Why I’m Single & Broke…But Happy

Every other Wednesday (2 days before payday), my account looks pathetic. When my friends have date night, I scramble to find a guy or just end up bringing one of my girlfriends. What’s to blame?

District 2 Bar and Grille & Gay Bars

They are the joy and bane of my existence. On one hand I always have an amazing time at both locations. On the other hand they leave me single, broke, but still happy.

District 2 is across the street from my house, full of people I love, and they know how I like my condiments. It’s my Cheers. I walk in and people know my name. If I have one too many, I stumble home. Chris (my favorite bartender) can judge by the look on my face whether it is going to be a Miller Lite Day, Cabernet Day, or if he should go ahead and pour me a shot of Whiskey. The people are incredible…The Robs, Kenny, Dave, or the occasional visit from Matt or Gary…they always put a smile on my face. HOWEVER, I obviously haven’t met a fella (well a long term fella) there yet and because it’s neighborhood bar, I don’t think the chances of me finding a man are good. What’s that saying, you can’t do the same thing and expect different results?? Something like that.

Then there is my home away from home…J.R.’s.  While these Sunday Fundays are spent with $3 Sky Vodka, Britney Spears playing on the TV’s, and GORGEOUS MEN with beautiful bodies (who are joined by their boyfriends). Of course I find a lot of men that get along GREAT with…but I also know we wont be running off into the sunset anytime soon.

Between the cab rides to J.R.’s and the food and wine at D2 (Hello DELICIOUS Pretzel Sticks) I think I dropped a letter in my name the minute I moved into my neighborhood…the “O” Brooke became broke.  I’m pretty sure I pay the utility bill every month at District 2 and may or may not have paid off one or two of the TVs at J.R.’s.  

To both places I say “You’re Welcome.” And “Thank You!” It’s you’re fault I’m single and broke, but you’re also the reason my life is fabulous.

    I think it would be cool to say you are single and Brooke. Sounds like the name of a Sitcom.

  • I think you’re onto something! Single & Brooke…I like the way that sounds =) XOXO-B
