Mountain Bear!

An actual conversation, Saturday night at Piers 8, Itaewon.  Waeg is happy drunk and dancing.  He does not give a shit about much of anything.  He is approached by two men:

You know, in the gay community, you're known as a bear.  We like bears, don't we?

Oh yes we do.  Bears are grrrrreat hahahahahaha.

They each tweak one of waeg's nipples.  He laughs.

Thanks guys, I'm flattered, guess I still got it.  But sorry, not gay.


Are you sure?  We could have a lot of fun you know.

Oh yes we could.  Don't knock it till you try it!

Waeg laughs again, keeps dancing.  At the end of the song he heads to the bathroom.  One of the men follow him.

Mmmm you are just deeelish.  Are you sure you're not gay?

Haha, thanks friend, you've made my night, but no, not my thing.  But thanks, seriously.

He heads to the bar and gets another drink.  When he gets to the table, he relays the story.  The group laughs at him.

Hahahaha Gangwon country boy mountain bear! The group roars.  For a moment he knows: I am bear.  Generally solitary, avoiding large groups of people, somewhat cantankerous at times, behavior affected by fermented fruits and grains.  He laughs again.

The conversation moves on to other things, but waeg doesn't hear; only the music fills his head.

He gets up to dance.

Honestly, there are worse things to be mistaken for than a big gay bear.
