The other night at Alive After Five (for my Pacific Rim and Asian subcontinent readers, AAF is a weekly gathering of the masses to listen to great music and comment on the physical attractiveness of strangers), I happened to be wearing a shirt that read "Make Awkward Sexual Advances, Not War." A clever play on the yester-generation's slogan "Make Love, Not War", in my opinion. But I digress.
An actual conversation that began as I was walking past three quite attractive women:
Woman: "Wow, what a great shirt!"
Me: "Well, that wasn't awkward at all."
Woman: "Oh." (pause) "Wanna have sex?"
Me (to myself): "Wow! I really AM just a big dork!"
I'll be teaching Smoooov 101 in the fall. Classroom space is limited.
