- is it appropriate?
- is it believable?
- is it hilarious?
- would I wanna read someone else talking about it on their blog?
These two stories from Friday absolutely meet all requirements.
In the middle of third period, I am handing out study guides when an African-American student randomly blurts out, "Man, you dress like a black girl!" I mean totally random. I was a little taken back, but I thanked him. I am assuming that was a supreme compliment, right? I didn't ask him to elaborate on exactly what that meant, and if it was a good thing to dress like that, because I was afraid things would get really inappropriate really quickly!
Then on the way home Friday afternoon, I notice out of my peripheral vision a truck driving RIGHT beside me on the interstate. You know how awkward that is, right? Like you can feel them looking at you, and you are thinking, "Is this person road raging on me? Are they trying to warn me of a gas leak? or a flat tire? Or a killer wielding a knife in the back seat?" Nope none of those things. This guy was beside me, a grown man no less, waving at me and blowing kissy faces. I mean he looked perfectly normal, but who the heck does that? I narrowed my eyes and gave him my most withering "WTF" face and flipped him off. Come on, dude. It's 3:30 in the afternoon and I am driving a mini-van for crying out loud. You really want to be hitting on me in the fast lane??

When I called Curtis to tell him about my two crazy experiences, he just laughed and told me I needed to tune down the "hotness". Yep. That was his sage advice. Oh yeah, and "You need to tell that story on the blog!"
