Baby I'm just a fool

The other night I was having dinner with a friend. I don't remember exactly what exactly we were talking about, but rest assured it was something that would make you think we were intelligent. Like politics. Or coalescent theory.

He was saying something profound when out of the corner of my eye I saw two ladies walk in. One of them had a buzz cut. I couldn't resist, so I nodded in her direction and said, "Speaking of butch lesbians . . ."

My friend looked at me with a horrified look on his face. Not like the horrified look that he'd give if she was a gross looking woman either. This was a horrified look like I'd just said the very worst thing possible. You'd have thought I was singing praises to Hitler or something.

So I sought to defend myself. "What? It's not like she's recovering from chemo or something."

"Actually, I think that's exactly what it is."

"Seriously? My bad."

Never in my life have I ever known anyone who puts their foot in their mouth more often than you Dr Minnow.

Tell me, have you ever asked a woman when her baby's due when she isn't even pregnant? Oh wait, that was me that did that. Ooooh I wanted to shrivel up and die over that one.

He must not have been an old friend or he might have been used to this by now, eh? Ha. This might be real-life awkward, but it's great for blog fodder.

As for the previous post, sports can make a hypocrite out of the best of people, so don't take it too hard. Besides, Vick hasn't been worth much of anything to anyone yet. Maybe never again.

ouch - though in all fairness it's a kinda tough call sometimes - Kaleb and I went to the movies one night and this girl came and sat down in front of us with a shaved/buzzed head and we couldn't decide if it was cancer or lesbianism, a girl joined her later which made it even harder to discern

My first thought would have been Chemo too. Unless she was wearing a WNBA jersey.

the question is, were you speaking of butch lesbians?

Since I know I can't discuss the intricacies of the coalescent without butch lesbians coming up...

really, should you even be allowed in public?

Well there is a waitress at the bar here who shaved her head, I've come to the conclusion she is a lesbian...especially with how friendly she gets sometimes lol...that's a tough call these days

you should write a book about the inappropriate things you've said in public. Seriously, NY Times Best Seller. It's sort of like Post Secret. Except, not a secret and all from your mouth. :)

Sometimes I wonder how you even talk. You know, with your foot being crammed so deeply down your throat.
(ps- I believe in equality in mocking. If you don't mock the mockable, aren't you being discriminatory?)
