Getting some flamin’ hot cabana boy action- Holiday for one tales

on March 5, 2017

My first day on my own in Cairns was grey but warm. I hadn’t made any plans or booked into any tours. I was lucky enough to wake up with a lovely young man, but after he applied some sunscreen to my back and went on his way and left me to it. We joked that I’d need someone to sunscreen me later on, as I’d already been fairly burnt two days prior and was still suffering! I wonder if he realised that my side of the joke was more wishful thinking than jesting?

I was defo keen to get out and about to see Cairns on my own, but also wanted to relax. It had been a big few days and lying by the pool sounded good to me.05-03-17a

I took my book along with me and headed downstairs. I could see the pool from my room and knew it was empty. When I got there, it was still empty and I had my pic of lounge chairs and cabanas. Of course, I wanted to soak up some rays while I had full sunscreen protection!

The water was chilly so I didn’t go in. Such a shame. The pool’s on a roof about 4 stories up but the water hadn’t warmed up enough for me to go in, and it wasn’t that hot that I needed to go in to cool off. Unfortunate temperature trickery, that!

And thus, my first day was spent lounging around, turning at regular intervals and reading and writing. I was determined, however, that I would pounce upon the very first person who came down to the pool – to ask them to sunscreen me, of course!

Lucky for me, the first one who came along was a dishy young guy. Well, hellooooo. He went into a cabana on the opposite side of the pool. I couldn’t see his face very well, what with the sun in my sunglasses and him being somewhat indoors, but I knew his bod was divine.

I’ll admit, it took me a little while to get up the courage to go over to him. Let’s be honest, when I promised myself I’d pounce on the first person, I didn’t a) necessarily expect anyone to rock up and b) never would have expected it would be a delish young man!

But, I decided a deal was a deal and I was on holiday and wanted to take every chance that came my way. So I dragged myself off my wooden lounge chair as elegantly as I could and grabbed my sunscreen and set off for the far side of the pool.05-03-17

When I arrived at his cabana, he’d taken his top off and was sunscreening himself. And holy cow, it was worth the trip. We got talking and he told me he’d been badly burnt so was staying indoors. We actually compared sunburn. Can you believe it? Anyway, he was only too happy to slather on some sunscreen on my body, and I can tell you, I was only too happy to let him.

Sunscreening was accompanied by brief convo about what we were doing in Cairns, during which he told me he was there as part of a group of performers. Righteo!! Wasn’t too sure about all of that and he didn’t seem to want to go into it, but if it involved getting his gear off, I figured he’d do pretty well. I thanked him and joked that I’d see him later, if we recognised each other with clothes on. He loved it.

I headed back to my lounge chair for a little while and then headed upstairs to change and to get on with the rest of my day.

When I was leaving the hotel, I went downstairs in the lift and who was there? That guy, and a mate. They were sitting in the foyer. I went over to say howdy, and said, weren’t you? And he laughed before he had a chance to explain, his friend said, “oh, you’re the sexy woman he met at the pool!” I was kinda stunned but of course I agreed, and then explained about the clothes on part; he thought it was pretty hilares too, but then he went on to say that they’re ‘partners’ who are strippers and are performing at the Convention Centre for a tools exhibition.

Now, regular readers would who’ve read, Let your words be anything but emptyknow how much I hate that word because of its ambiguous nature. The mate asked me to the pub but frankly, I kinda felt like it was an empty invite and that he was making fun of me; nor did I know which bits were true and which were jokes. So I said I might pop in on my way back from shopping, which is where I was heading.

When I came back from shopping and was getting ready to head out to dinner, I heard some ruckus down at the pool. Stepping out onto my tiny balcony, I saw that my pool boy was down there with that guy, another guy and two women, and they were rehearsing! The guys were fire throwers and the women were dancing. There were no flames poolside, but I could see that it would be a good show. The music was great. One of the girls really stood out, as a fantastic dancer. Pool guy still looked pretty good, but wasn’t quite a natural dancer. But who doesn’t love a guy who’s highly coordinated with his hands? I know I do! And all that fire twirling had sure paid off in the body department! That explains that. Grooooowww.

I kinda hoped I’d run into him again when he was solo, and that way I could feel out (in more ways than one) if he was available or really was partnered up with his mate.

But, unfortunately, the next time I saw him was with the whole gang and there was no way I was going to approach after the way his mate had been.

It’s fine though, I’d given myself a goal, and gone for it, and thus had had a brief but hands on interaction by the pool with a delish young man. Go me! And you know, not every guy you meet has to become something. Sometimes it’s really nice just to have a chat, or a little flirtation.
