Usually I’m fairly decent about seeing when …
A guy is making a move.
Either on me or on someone else.
Or maybe not even making a move,
But posturing themselves to help preserve their opportunity to make a move …
At a later time.
Though Saturday night,
I totally missed the boat on seeing one such move-type-thing coming,
Until I had already been suckered into it.
So in the spirit of sharing my mistakes,
As to help you avoid making the same ones …
Here’s how I easily ended up giving a guy my real mobile phone number,
Without even realizing I did until it was too late.
Saturday night …
Baby, Sister-In-Law and mwah went to the local comedy club.
Now for those of you who have never been to a comedy club before,
Usually it’s not a good idea to sit stage front …
As you tend to attract the attention of the comedians.
Attention meaning becoming a butt of their jokes.
That’s where we found our seats when we got there,
And with the first comedian …
I was the designated butt.
I was the punchline of a “Do the curtains match the carpet?” joke,
And a running gag of how I allegedly was always looking at his crotch,
As if hypnotized.
Now being the attention whore that I am …
Of course I loved the attention,
And played along good naturedly.
It was a good night of comedians …
Everyone taking the stage was hilarious.
Very, very good,
After the show I started gabbing with the comedian that was joking about me being hypnotized by his crotch,
And he thanked me for being fun about it.
To commemorate the event,
I took a picture of us.
I know !!!
What a surprise !!!
Me … taking a picture.
He asked to see it,
So I showed him.
It was a good picture …
And he asked me to text it to him.
So I did.
And as soon as I hit SEND …
I realized I was a moron.
He was a good guy and all,
Seemed very nice.
But I totally suspected I was now going to get a call later that night.
What guy really wants a picture texted to him?
No guy does,
He was just feigning the want to capture the digits,
So I thought.
Turns out I was right …
As I received more than one call from him later that night.
I’m a musician groupie,
Not a comedian groupie,
I never heard the phone ring.
Oh well …
I hope you don’t fall for the “Oh, text me that picture” line unless you want the person to whom you’re sending the picture,
To also have your digits.
