Mandrama #2

I have a confession of a time I did express some mandrama verbally. Some of you know this story, but I’ll share it with those who don’t. A few of my closest friends consider it one of my greatest, though quite crude, moments. I doubt it will come across that well via my blog, though. So, you should have been there.

The scenario was this: Darin and I and maybe Puffy were attending a girl’s basketball game at Harbor Beach sometime in high school—probably our junior or senior year. We were entering the gym, walking along the baseline toward Harbor Beach’s student section. As we near the sideline, we start to look for seats. But we certainly aren’t planning on plopping down next to opposing fans.

Some Harbor Beach girl looks at me and, with a tone in her voice, points out that “Visitor seating is over there.”

I proceed to look her right in the eyes and say: “Yeah? And you’re ugly.”

Stunned, we suspect from the look on her face, she didn’t respond. And we kept looking for seats.

I doubt this qualifies as official mandrama because I was actually quoting someone else’s mandrama—Ace Ventura’s. He says it to Courtney Cox’s character in a heated argument they have in Pet Detective. I don’t remember thinking that this Harbor Beach girl was particularly ugly; it was just the first thing that came to my mind.

We all have our moments…

Not a particularly slow weekend. I went to my bro’s and hooked up with the family for Father’s Day. Saturday I logged about 4 hours of apartment painting… in somebody else’s apartment! As if I hadn’t gone through enough gallons this past week already! :) It was part of a service project, though, so I was more than glad to. And it was fun to boot.

I’m actually blogging about the rate I would like to on a regular basis. I was just unusually slow for a few months.

Man, I leave for a week and a half, and you blog like a crazy man. Awesome to have something to come home to and read. I remember when I first heard this story, I thought you were a jerk, not I think it is funny because I know you and the story so much better. HA! Trust me, I could fill a website with stupid things I have said to a guy. Including scaring my neighbor from ever wanting to talk to me when I was moving in…I so need to tell you that story sometime! ha!

Hope all is going well! Your Apartment looks like mine. I don’t have furniture either, and the space looks huge. But it does give me an excuse to get out of the house more since I have nothing to sit on!
