I have this very good friend of mine who’s close enough to not really care about expressing his various forms of desperation. I have many stories…but I think I’ll start off with one of my favorites.
We were driving around town, just the two of us. All of a sudden, without a word of warning, he grabbed at his crotch and keeps his hand there.
â€œI have to pee, like, retardingly bad,â€ was his only explanation when he caught me looking at him oddly.
Now, this kid has to pee a lotâ€”in fact, he confided in me that he had wet the bed up until the age of seventeen. But I had never seen him truly desperate before until that moment.
â€œTake your hand off your dick.â€ I joked. â€œIt’s awkward for the both of us.â€
He shot me a grin.
â€œNo it isn’t.â€
He continued to hold onto his package and massage it gently while we continued to talk about other things, occasionally making a comment about his need to pee. Unfortunately, we stopped at a store soon after and he went to the bathroom immediately, but the image of him grabbing himself is still very visible in my mind.
