Ok, last night Athena and I both decided to rant about this and I plan to rant every time it happens. It happens pretty often, so get used to it.
Last night we were walking from Aquarium to Blind Pig. As we were passing Paradise some guy reached across Athena, poked me on the arm, and when I looked at him put his fingers on his dimple areas and told me to smile. I was surprised and I thought it was kind of funny, so I half laughed which caused a smile. Then I was frusterated that I had smiled. I didn’t know him, I don’t want to know him. Don’t tell me to smile! I don’t walk around my life with a smile permanantly plastered on my face. I think people tell me to smile because they think I am upset. I am not, I just have a straight face at that particular moment. It happens. What gives you the right to tell me what to do?!? If I don’t smile you’ll think I’m rude. Thus, leaving me in an awkward situation. How about this. If you don’t know me, not only do you not have the right to tell me to smile but most likely, I don’t care to talk to you, oh random drunk guy!
Haha. I just remembered something that happened last night that I hadn’t planned on writing about, but had I seen it happen I would have laughed SO hard. Athena and I were crossing the streed and 5 or 6 guys were crossing it the other way (toward us). I saw two of them looking at me and sort of walking together at me. Then, right when they got to me they both put their hands out above their heads and yelled, “Bleh!!” It scared the heck out of me. I did the girly scream thing (but on my defense, it wasn’t that loud) and then laughed. I was so surprised. Grr. It was really funny, but I felt really stupid.
