And yes, of course, most of my questions and confusions are with men..why wouldn’t they be?
What is it about men and travel? Every time a male takes me to the airport, I get, “call me when you get there/let me know when you get there safe” which is just funny cause they wouldn’t be asking if they didn’t drive me to the airport..and my girl friends who are actually closer than these boys have never said that…maybe, “call me if you want to chat,”…but no sort of long-distance sudden protective measure..
In starbucks, coffee bean or some other caffeine filling station of choice, why do people ask complete strangers to watch their stuff as they disappear for a moment? Is this a logical breakdown somewhere, so, you ask one complete stranger to "watch your stuff" in order to protect your stuff from another complete stranger? and what about stranger A leads anyone/us to believe that they care about your stuff? and do we really expect them to throw themselves in harm's way for your stuff?
Why do men like to ask me what I am looking for in a man? Really, we all have a few things that are necessary or attractive to us, but you never know who you will fall in love with, so most of what one is ‘looking for’ is unfounded conjecture. That being said, if you like the girl, ask her out, what do you have to lose? Because try as you might, you can’t accurately figure out on your own whether she would like you based on her answer anyway.
No matter how often or seriously I take my yoga practice or how 'professional' I am with my community of yogis..exactly why does any male think it a good idea to wear layers of clothes as we warm up and then, decide to flow through the bulk of his practice in snug speedo-cut briefs? I mean, you are supposed to sweat...they turn on the heater, on purpose, everyone else is in fashionable stretchy mid-calf length pants or shorts or whatever...not to mention the impracticality..(poses of skin on skin don't hold satisfactorily)...anyway, this choice might need to be re-visited
Is it possible vegetarians do not use the two canine teeth very much, since, they are designed to tear meat afterall? So if the other teeth wear down over time, do the canine teeth look unusually disproportionate? If so perhaps, a chew toy to gnaw on throughout the day would help. (although, highly unlady-like.) Adult chew toys are available: http://www.sensorycomfort.com/HomeSchoolWk.htm#Chewy%20Tubes....clearly,
Can men and women be just friends? After fighting that indeed, friendship is totally possible and beautiful b/w the sexes, I have found that over the years, more and more of my dear friendships that bridge the gender gap have grown messy, confusing, sensual, unsafe or just annoying. Yet I still hold on to the thought that friendship can exist pure and platonic b/w a hetero-sexual man and woman. And yes, I have been described as stubborn.
Do you correct the average acquantiance when he/she mentions your hypothetical ‘boyfriend/girlfriend’ if indeed you aren’t actually seeing anyone? I mean, is he/she probing for information? Or just assuming the natural based on your hot appearance and winsome personality? And would it just be awkward to correct them, even if you deny that you prefer to be in a relationship?
starbucks anecdote/puzzlement #2: setting: most tables are full, everyone is studying, most of us with earphones and those new trendy peripheral equestrian-style blinders in desperate hopes to maintain our community of 1 in stereotypically isolated LA...so immediately, the voices of two people echo loudly over the hum of the espresso machine...how do you get a drivers liscense and yet don't understand the social ettiquete of coffee shop voice volume maximums??? so this guy not even pretending to be studying anymore, body unashamedly totally facing this girl at the adjecent table who is also seemingly quite comfy not to be reading...they chat it up!! and then some...the volume on the ipod goes up...as intriguing as they might be, playing the voyeur to this flirtation is not on my schedule..so an hour later...still going strong...seriously, just exchange the numbers...it's going well for you both..everyone else pretends to be looking at the page in front of them, despite the disturbingly strong temptation to watch this go down...and then they exchange the longest words they each know!! when did this pick-up strategy/competition become popular? the guy explains you can bascially just choose a long word and keep adding pre-fixes and suffixes as much as you want...okay, how to focus?..so FINALLY, after no problem finding conversation topics...they exchange numbers, and names and where they live, and what they do...I so wanted to write down their respective numbers they shared with the entire coffee shop and anonomously text them both, telling them that really, they seem quite compatible and should hang out some more...creepy...but great...
