    I was kicking it at this stupid fair thing today for my work. A lot of people running around and checking everything out. So I'm working the booth and I see this really good looking guy. We make eye contact and he smiles, then vanishes into the crowd. Thirty minutes later I look up and he is walking over. Only I'm shoving a fistful of french fries in my mouth with ketchup all over my hand...he played it off cool and did a 180° back the other way. icon_neutral.gif

    Anyone else have any embarrassing stories like that?

    You should have had a sausage in your mouth instead of french fries.

    I wouldn't have turned around. I woulda said "hey there," then grabbed a fry from your bag, dipped it in the ketchup on your face, then enjoyed it in my mouth with a big smile.

    You're lucky you weren't digging boogers from your nose when you bumped into him. What's the big deal with what you were doing? I like guys who act naturally and don't give a fuck about what other homos think.

    And he never reappeared? awwwww... icon_sad.gif

    Yeah, my own embarrassing stories are beyond count. I really am the total social klutz. And I'm more than 3 times your age, so I've had plenty of time to perfect my ineptitude. icon_redface.gif

    But I'm actually not too bad in gay situations. Maybe because I really try harder, pay more attention to what I'm doing, yet feel more natural & relaxed than I do in a straight setting. There I always feel off-balance and out of place.

    One of my nightmares was going to an art show opening at a museum. Casual attire for once, rather than black bow tie, I bought this rather inexpensive but distinctive pin-striped sports jacket I could wear over jeans, with the sleeves pushed up almost to my elbows. Quite the fashion some years ago, I matched it with a collarless knit pullover underneath and thought I looked so GQ. icon_razz.gif

    Until I saw another guy there wearing the identical jacket over jeans as well, his sleeves hiked up like mine! Now I know how women feel when they run into another woman wearing the same outfit. And I know this guy saw me, as did others there, including some friends of mine.

    I totally panicked, literally running out of the exhibit hall. Fortunately I was a museum donor and knew the staff, and they gave me access to a private office, where I ripped off the jacket and rearranged the knit pullover as my outer garment so I could return.

    But my composure was gone, and if I hadn't been required to be there I would have left. Later I was obliged to attend a small private dinner to honor the featured artist, to which my lookalike hadn't been invited. But I still couldn't wear that jacket, fearing that the others might remember him wearing it. Do you know I never wore that jacket again, so outdated today that I never will? I still cringe at that night, that started out so well, with vain dreams that for once I would be cutting-edge fashionable. icon_sad.gif

    Like Dr Seuss said, “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.”

    In the winter I stopped into a bar my friends own (I'm there just about weekly). One night, for some reason three girls I didn't know came up to me and commented on my glasses. "Those look great! How long have you had those?" asked one, and I just said, "Uh, forever." Another said, "Wow, you look so good in glasses! Why don't you wear them more often?" I asked her when the hell she saw me without my glasses on and she said, "About ten minutes ago!"

    Soon after I figured out why. There was another guy there almost exactly my height, hair a little darker but the same style, about the same build as me (a little bigger, actually--think he does or did play football), but we were wearing the exact same shirt, AND pants, and similar shoes. At one point we were both standing right next to each other by the bar and it just looked weird. We both shifted uncomfortably.

    "I think everyone thinks I'm you," I said at one point, and he just sorta shrugged. "I'm taking it as a compliment, I wish I was as big as you." Not much of a response. Shortly afterward, I said, "If you wanna 'Parent Trap' this I could lend you my glasses for awhile." Still not much of a response, so I just tried to put some distance between us so we didn't look like we planned it.

    Kidding or not, you may be speaking wiser than you know. A good many of my posts are about my idiotic misadventures, not all my personal boasts as some here would contend.

    RJ and other social sites are my Confessional, where I admit my vanities & failures, and invite others to take shots at me. Comments like yours are my penance. And I do post a lot, because I have the time & opportunity (unfortunately for us both), and a gift for writing quickly, that mostly comes from my late Mother, I think.

    If he'd been the one scarfing fries I think you would have kept on walking up to him, so don't feel embarrassed; I would think he should be. icon_wink.gif

    Back when I was twelve I was on a public phone when this Filipino man behind me said: "ARY-UP-PUH-LEEZ?"

    I was rather amused and said: "Me? OH MAN, No No No, I'm too young to be a policeman. I actually go to this school....blah blah blah."

    My friends who were behind him were wondering what the fuck I was doing, and I said: "What? this guy here thought I'm a policeman, HA HA!"

    One of them goes "He said 'Hurry up please' you idiot!"

    I surrendered the phone to the Filipino...I was only fair

    at my old gym I almost tripped over a bench when I was walking with dumbbells and paying more attention to a hot guy doing squats that where I was walking.

    You're only 18 years old so you'll have plenty of additional opportunities to make an ass of yourself.

    LOL! A winner and a weener. Although, with his hot body and good looks, his mother was probably kinda proud in addition to enjoying the prank.
