Mental note: always take my phone when going out into the work hall. Then I can pretend type and carry on bogus conversations with nobody. Most importantly I wouldn’t have to talk to people I don’t want to because I would be otherwise fictitiously engaged.

Can I use that excuse in other social situations? “I’d love to come to your party, but I’m fictitiously engaged that evening.”

tcr! tcr! · Apr 19, 2019 at 8:14 am

Absolutely but be careful letting people know how much fiction you’re dealing with. Most humans can’t handle too much in public. Cats on the other hand…

A cowboy stance if you will

tcr! · Nov 6, 2018 at 9:04 am

This recount will probably not win me a single friend. However, I shall proceed anyway, in the most delicate way possible. This memory needs purged guys, I cannot carry its burden alone. Also, don’t make this about you because it’s not.

So the scene is a local convenience store, early morning. Dawn’s third light if you will. Normally I don’t like participating in society before the sun has reached its midday peak but that’s what I gotta do sometimes.

A girl cashier, looked to be in her early 20s, is manning the checkout aisle. Hippie critter with long blonde dreadlocks down her back. No problem, I can deal with this. Of course I have nothing against tie-dye, but I just don’t like it for myself.

Now then, this free spirit was chipper and scanned my purchases in a timely and conversational manner. Good, good, good.

And then unexpectedly, without announcement or provocation… you know that cube of space where stores keep their plastic bags to fill with your items? The cashier lifted her right leg and rested her foot in that spot. A cowboy stance if you will.

Plastic bag storage with cowboy boot

I absentmindedly looked down at this weird instance of leisure between employee and customer. Mostly I try to keep my eyes to myself but this leg maneuver was out of the ordinary. Definitely not par for the course.

She was wearing a white tennis shoe and black yoga pants, fitted just below the knee. And then. I realized. She had chosen not to shave that very lifted leg.

Oh.

Guys, now hold up. I don’t have anything against women’s lib or militant feminism. Or even peaceful feminism. I resist social norms and quietly protest beauty standards in both men and women alike.

But I wasn’t quite sure what to make of that leg lift. Obviously, the picture is a photographic recreation and not the actual checkout aisle. Nor is the cowboy boot to scale. It’s simply a rendered reconstruction for the readers.

Anyway, was she looking for feedback perhaps? Possibly a nonchalant complement? Is that just how kids do these days?

Maybe she was simply okay enough with her womanhood that leg, shaved or unshaved, conventional or subculture, wasn’t an issue. A confidence strong enough that one simply forgets what body service has been done and not done.

Again, I must insist that I’m not anti-razor. This whole encounter was simply more than unusual. I felt like I’d just opened an x-file.

So then I did what I do best in most social situations. I refused to make eye contact and quietly recited the first few lines of the 1979 masterpiece, Cars by Gary Numan:

Here in my car I feel safest of all. I can lock all my doors. It’s the only way to live.

And then grabbed my receipt and supplies, double-timed to the sliding double-doors, and vowed never again to look down. In any public place. Under any circumstances.

So where exactly, precisely did this unrestricted showing of minimal furry take place? I will leave that piece untold. Perhaps you, too, will spot this elusive creature during your own travels.

And long live the minimoog. “It will keep me stable for days.”

Hairier legs are heavier and need to rest more often than shaved legs.

Could it be possible that she just wanted to be comfortable and having her leg up made her feel better? Naaaah…she was assaulting your eyes with her “militant feminist” hairy legs. 😜

tcr! tcr! · Nov 6, 2018 at 9:38 am

I never used the word “assault” but I do think cowboy stance is generally more comfortable. I’m going to try it the next time I’m in the aisle myself.

Ice cream anxiety

tcr! · Nov 1, 2018 at 10:06 am

Audio (MP3): 20181101 - Ice cream anxiety

Golden hockey mask

If we’re at a social gathering and it feels like I snub you that’s because I’m not a social butterfly. I’m more like a social moth. My wings are dusty. I check the doors to be sure they lock. I have debates with myself about what I’m supposed to do next. I have the social skills of a turtle. Just give me some lettuce.

Large groups of people don’t necessarily make me nervous, just uncomfortable. I don’t like people sitting or standing behind me. I don’t like it to the point where I’ll change seats. If I can’t see everything I feel somewhat flustered. I like to keep an eye on things.

That might sound cliche or overused or whatever but it’s because it’s a real thing that affects more people than it should.

I can relate to so much of what you described. I suppose for me it’s social anxiety. I don’t like going to parties, I don’t like large groups of people that I don’t know and it’s even worse if everyone knows each other and I’m the new person. We have an invitation to a Thanksgiving party we haven’t replied to b/c of my anxiety….I’ve only met the couple once. John knows the husband well but I don’t want to go to someone’s house with a bunch of people I’ve never met. Then I wonder why I don’t have friends…this type of thing right here. :(

tcr! tcr! · Nov 1, 2018 at 10:50 am

I set time limits for how long I’m willing stay somewhere. With a group of people I don’t know, that limit would most likely be 15 minutes. Then I can leave everybody murmuring amongst themselves.. “who was that dashing man in the golden hockey mask?”

asquared01 · Nov 1, 2018 at 1:05 pm

If you’re at least making a 15 minute appearance, you’re a better person than me. I’ll be replying “can’t go” to that invite. 😬

tcr! tcr! · Nov 1, 2018 at 4:45 pm

How about you guys go for 10 minutes? Drop off a can of that cranberry sauce that makes people swoon? And then announce boldly to crowd, “we’re taking turkey pot pies to the homeless shelter on 5th Avenue.” Nobody would blink as you slammed the door on your way out.

Guys, I was just in the Blue Goose check out aisle. They asked me if I wanted paper or plastic.

When I replied “paper” the guy said under his breath, “I knew you’re gonna say that.”

I’m obviously going to have to stop coming here. They have a file on me or something.

Things not to ask while at the dentist:

Why are the holistic folk against fluoride?

Before I could say dental floss everyone but the dentist was within 2 feet of my persons and I was teeth deep in charts and graphs and scientific data and flipbook presentations.

Fluoride is poison… While in dental school I said this to an instructor and was asked why I would say such a thing…”because it is proven to make the masses docile; you know like Hitler did in WW2.”

😐 I wasn’t the favorite student after that comment.

tcr! tcr! · Oct 17, 2018 at 4:23 pm

The only thing I’ve read so far that I agree with is that it shouldn’t be added to the public water system. I’m a big fan of choice.

tcr! tcr! · Oct 17, 2018 at 4:26 pm

With that said, I think there’s bigger things to argue about.

RR Overstreet · Oct 17, 2018 at 5:33 pm

I’m a trained dental hygienist. I have to say you are right… Bigger issues than that…But fluoride was discovered as a natural element. As for being added to public water, look at all the mindless drinking non fluoride bottled water, in my opinion is a waste of time and money. Sure people want to decide for themselves, but where I work at (idoc dental Dept) all the non brushing/ flossing, candy eating, drug use rampant decay… Need some good ol fluoride…lol ☺️.. just my professional opinion. πŸ˜‰

Mitchell · Oct 17, 2018 at 5:51 pm

The reason they add it to water is certain plants had so much excess fluoride waste they made a deal with the government so they could get rid of their waste

Mitchell · Oct 17, 2018 at 5:51 pm

Don’t quote me on that but something along them lines I heard them saying in a documentary

I’m also a dental hygienist and totally agree! People don’t realize how rampant decay was before fluoride was introduced, and now with all the bottled water….without Fluoride…being consumed, decay is rearing it’s ugly head again!

Early in the 20th century, dentists discovered that fluoride reduced the number of cavities in their patients’ teeth. Soon, amidst much debate and rancor, fluoride was regularly added to American public drinking water supplies. Fluoridation has been hailed by some as a triumph of public health but it was also, as historian Frank Zelko points out this month, a profitable way to put to use a waste byproduct from the production of fertilizer.

I’m not discounting that fact, but the way it’s worded sounds like a conspiracy. Sounds mutually beneficial to all involved.

When you’re in SuperTarget and see another dude yawning, do you ever just want to wink at him, add a little mystery and intrigue into his life?

I thought so.
