Name that porn star!

Yesterday was my last day of Physical Therapy for my recent shoulder surgery! Just about 4 weeks worth. Not bad considering it usually takes about 3 months of therapy after the surgery I went through.

I've been through it before and I knew what to expect. I pushed the therapy to the limit but didn't cross the line. So now I can get back to my regular workout... gradually. It's humbling.

So to celebrate my graduation from physical therapy I called my friends Tim (Tim Kelly) and Josh (Josh West) and asked them to meet me for a drink and dinner after work. While we were having margaritas (mine was an Italian Margarita... Amoretto instead of Grand Marnier) my friend Matt (Matt Rush) showed up with a beautiful and sweet Italian friend and my friend Jonathan also joined. Guess it sounds like a porn convention, but it's just plain old friends hanging out.

It was my night and I was feeling very Italian. Especially since I was wearing my Brooklyn T-shirt, which is over 25 years old. Ya... I was lowered in Bensonhurst Brooklyn. (No one is actually raised there.) So I suggested Il Mulino Italian Restaurant and everyone was up for it.

A night of wine, beer, garlic and pasta followed. AWESOME! I had the Zuppa de Pesce fra Diavlo style. (That's a whole mess of clams, mussels, shrimp and fish cooked in a VERY spicy red sauce and served over linguine.

To top things off, the restaurant served my favorite Italian beer. Moretti beer! Yup... that's where I got my porn name. My real last name is equally as Italian but actually relates to the word "pig" and not "beer". Go figure.

Don't worry... I only had one beer with dinner. Tomorrow morning I'm waking up bright and early and getting my ass to the gym where I can start building up what muscle mass I've lost. I'm going to try to get bigger and better than I was before. Wish me luck!

How clever! Trust me there are far worse porn names, as I am sure YOU are aware. D'Macho, to name one. I bet his zodiac sign is the cock. Maybe that is why you had that run in with him where he rubbed you the wrong way?
