And All This TIme I Thought I Was a Chick

I always have to wonder what it is about me that screams "I'm a guy" when I walk into a Starbucks or other such establishments.

On more than one ocassion {why can't I spell this word? I have spelled it 3 different ways now, all of them look wrong}, I have been called "Sir" as I approached the counter to place my order. There is really nothing worse than bouncing into a place, excited for that tall, skim, iced decaf mocha, finally getting up to the server after waiting on that line that would drive anyone to insanity, and having the girl behind the counter smile and say "what can I get for you, Sir?"

What is it about me that screams guy? Is it my long, flowing golden locks? My ample cleavage? My high-pitched, feminine voice?

Do they think I'm this dude?



I dunno. I think Beehive might not be so thrilled upon finding out that he's been boning Michael Bolton all this time.

HA! You should walk around with that MBolton simmering stare on your face. Or not.

Actually, I think that the IQ of a Starbucks (and similar places) employee is on par with a fruit fly, and they probably have trouble comprehending that they are supposed to greet customers by "sir" OR "miss" or whatever, and they just say "sir" to everyone. Because I've totally been called "sir" by people at delis and such and I'm pretty damn sure that neither I nor you (esp. with your tatas) look like dudes.

I think I might have the MBolton simmering stare down to a science, sadly ;)

And yes, I agree. Neither of us looks like dudes. So therefore, Starbucks' (and similar places) employees are not very smart. Nope.

Next time I see you I want to see the stare. And your tatas, just so I know that you're not MBolton ;)

I'll always show you my tatas. You know that.

And, why the hell are you and I the only people reading my blog today? I posted not one but TWO ridiculously hilarious posts last night. WTF? ;)

Maybe they're playing hooky? Because we know that no one actually works all the time when they're at work!

If you use FireFox it comes with spellcheck wherever you are entering text.

Now the only way I won't look at you Cheese and see MBolton is if I watch you show Roopa your boobies?

Geoff-I do not have Firefox, and therefore, must double check all my spelling. Heck, that's probably not even true. I'm sure I have some sort of spellcheck program...I'm just lazy.

Beehive--Keep dreamin' buddy!

Now... did you really need to bring Michael Bolton into this? No one ever needs to bring Michael Bolton into anything.
