Screwdunnit? Apr 2, 2010
Tony Romero is a love-‘em-and-leave-‘em handsome Lothario and his boyfriends invariably wind up throwing his stuff on to the lawn and screaming at him to pack up and leave. He has just wound up in the hospital because a person unknown has shot him. Who could it be? The list of suspects, male and female, is long and his memory of the actual incident is hazy.
So what’s he supposed to do with his time in the hospital? At first his therapist suggests he draw. But when he tells her he uses his drawing abilities mainly to pick up men, she withdraws that suggestion in a hurry. She tells him instead he should use his pad for writing a journal. So what does a roving Don Juan with time on his hands write about when he isn’t screwing? Three guesses.
This ‘confessional’ is lively and amusing and, while the mystery of how Tony was shot is solved eventually (no, I’m not telling), it takes second place to the drama of a man who lives for love and gradually comes to realize that it means more than having sex with every good-looking guy who crosses his path. There is also a recipe for basil pesto that you may want to try, if you’re interested.
