A Statement || Claudio & Angelina

It was, by far, the most effort and preparation, thought and energy he had ever put in such a social event, Claudio was sure of that. The planning, the inclusion of Angelina, the conjoined process of finding a fitting ensemble, all the research beforehand, the secrets he found, the information he gathered. And, admittedly, some anticipation. The Swiss man was excited. This event could catapult him even higher on the ladder, the food chain in the shark pool of his business. On the other hand, it could also cost him a lot if things went wrong. Money, all and foremost, more time than he would want to admit, and credibility, the worst of all.

Still, the anticipation prevailed. And thus, he waited in the car while Pylon fetched Angelina from her door – something he couldn’t take from the dark skinned man. He wanted to see Angelina in her glory, or so he had said, since he had been forced to just wait while they picked the outfit. And Claudio granted him these few minutes from the apartment door to the one of the car. His fingers ran over the fabric of his pants, over his thighs, but also over his sleeves. He wasn’t nervous, not at all. Not excited to an extend of inner turmoil. No, he was simply pleased with the high quality of the fabric. And, for once, he had nothing better to do than enjoy this quite expensive but very good investment.

Due to powerful tides, this teeming reef has become a series of shallow tide pools. An Epaulette shark is caught on the reef in the deadly Australian sun. Not to fear, this little shark has evolved ways to survive out of water. By shutting down its organs one by one, it can cope without oxygen sixty times longer than a human. And, if necessary, it can switch to survival tactic number two; it can use its fins as a pair of rudimentary legs to make its way back to the nearest tide pool, and the cool ocean water. This is the only shark that can walk its way out of trouble.

Pool Shark Nicknames

Last week I said I’d call myself “Rancho DeMamp” when I became a pool shark, but the name hasn’t grown on me like I’d hoped.  If I’m going to get it tattooed across my knuckles, it’s got to be forever.

Here are some other ones I’m messing with:

  • Adam “The Pool Shark” DeMamp
  • Adam “The Lifeguard” DeMamp (runs pool)
  • Pool Jaws
  • The Cucamonga Leaner (when I hit every shot with a calculated lean)
  • The Big Stick (self explanatory)
  • Pool Master & Commander
  • Solid Stripes (play on Stars-n-Stripes, go with the Patriot theme)
  • The House (always wins)
  • Adam “Ball Breaker” DeMamp (simple, effective)
  • Scratch Adams

Figure I’ll play some games, make some scores, separate some marks from their cash, and then the right name will come to me in a dream like Mark Wahlberg in Boogie Nights.

What do you guys think?

Lyin’ in my plastic bed

thinkin’ how things weren’t so cool to me

my baby likes to shoot pool

I like lyin’ naked in my bedroom

tying on the dinosaur tonight

it used to be so cool to…

But now i’ve got the needle

and i can shake but i can’t breathe

i take it away

but i want more, and more

one day i’m gonna lose the war

Lyin’ in my plastic bed

thinkin’ how things weren’t so cool to me

my baby like to shoot pool

like lyin’ naked in my bedroom

tying on the dinosaur tonight

it used to be so cool

now i got the needle

and i can shake but i can’t breath

i take it away

but i want more, and more

one day i’m gonna lose the war.
