I had a craving for Steak on Sunday, so after volleyball practice I headed to the local market.
I picked up my steak, a small package of chocolate chip cookies with no nuts and 2 boxes of Smacks (What? They were on sale!) and was walking towards the register.
It was then that it happened.
A young woman, dressed to impress, carrying a package of energy drinks, looked me up and down...I was wearing a very sweaty, bright orange t-shirt, gym shorts and some flip flops. It was clear that I was not "dressed to impress", but looking (and smelling) rather gross.
She walks next to me, puts her hand on my shoulder and says "you are a beautiful man."
Shell shocked, I smile, say thanks and left.
Ladies, when you say something like that to a guy, what is the appropriate response?
A. "Thanks. I know I am beautiful. In fact, I am hot. No, not just sweaty hot, but really hot. Would you like to see me flex my calves?"
B. "Wow, you need to get your eyes checked."
C. "Get behind me Satan."
D. "I will make sure to pass that along to my parents. Clearly their genes matched well."
E. "I know. Claire tells me all the time. You know Claire. My girlfriend."
Maybe I should ask a more pointed question...
"Claire, how would you like me to handle this type of situation in the future?"
