Well, I finally got my first negative joke while I was throwing my yoyo. I brought my YYJ Christmas XCon that I won in a contest from JD’s new store and while nobody was in the club, I put a mix on and went to the lobby and threw it a few times. The lighting tech comes up and laughs and is like really? A 6 year old’s toy? Are you 6 now? I replied, that I wish I could feel like I was 6 with that much energy, I’d yoyo all day if I could do that!
I was hoping that would shut him up, but nope, he went further. I bet that gets you a lot of girls. (Really, I still don’t know why the conversation from him or what others have said on here, goes there. I mean really, if I see someone working on a car, or running, or playing hacky sack, boy I bet that lands you a lot of girls comment never comes to my mind) But yeah, So I bet that lands you a lot of girls comment, I replied, well thankfully I’m married, so I already landed the hot girl, now I can go back to playing a child’s toy and not have to worry about your thoughts on my image. That finally seemed to do it, I thought. But nope, then he goes on about next time I’ll come in with Magic the Gathering Cards or ask him to be a Dungeon Master. At that point I just had to laugh and I just went with it and we talked about Card Games, Thunder Cats, TV shows, and movies. So, it wasn’t a total score, but I guess I handled it all pretty well. I’m glad I was able to think on my feet, but I think it wouldn’t hurt for me to come up with a few sayings so that if I’m ever caught off guard I’ll have something witty to say back.
