"oh boo" moment #4

here awhile back while on the observation deck - remember your suthun - could've been an hour ago or last week - a last minute trek to the grocery before a storm hit i was put face to face with a guy who had a t-shirt on which boldly declared "CHICK MAGNET"!

while he was pretty enough, i must first apologize to warren for that time i called him a "CHICK MAGNET". i'm sorry, warren.

as i checked this guy out for what was so magnetizing, starting at head level and working my way down...okay, okay - so he had lovely, thick, dirty blond, curly hair - big blue eyes that looked as though you could dive into them and then came the obnoxious t-shirt. all of a sudden he went metro-sexual on me - his culottes were far cuter than my shorts! that's it for him!

did i stop there? no, i did not. my first thought was, "what kind of shoes would i wear with those culottes?" ahhhhhh, yes - the little black satin slides!

back to what i perceive as reality - he was wearing a very ratty pair of flip-flops - and at this point it really didn't matter what color they were as i was so angry and don't quite know what kept me from tripping him right there at the cash register other than the fact his toenails were painted a lovely salmon red, while my own are painted a drab mauve.

mentally scratching my head and forgetting why i was there, i wondered if i am the only person to whom these things happen in the space of seven and a half seconds?

Not exactly a manly guy, I take it.

Any guy who paints his toenails is not for me! But I have to admit that I've never seen any guys here with painted toenails.

I remember this: that time i called him [Warren] a "CHICK MAGNET".

I don't know if Warren is a chick magnet, but he IS a gentleman.

Remember that magnets have 2 poles, one that attracts and one that repells.

i cannot imagine sharing my nail polish with my husband!

there was that time when i packed his bag to go off to a job and i accidentally put my undies in his suitcase instead of his...the thing that bothered me about that was they looked better on him than me - otherwise he had to wear them out of necessity. apparently, men do not know how to go out and purchase their own skivvies after they've been married for ten years or so.

And your point is? What does that have to do with weird metro-males? We are discussing "oh boo" moments in a moment of lightness, you are off topic!
AoW- Warren is a different kind of chick magnet! He is helpful in a brotherly kind of way, so women feel safe with him! I bet Jackie appreciates that!
Nanc- Censoring yourself? Another oh boo moment in the making?
Cube- Bwahahahahaha!


nanc said...

nope, tmw - just a misspelling! you have your "oh boo" moments and i have mine!

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

I used to have a shirt that said "Nobody knows I'm a lesbian" that got the same reaction.

nanc said...

my most recent favorite tee stated:

"silence is golden

ducttape is silver"

ask my son....

The Merry Widow said...

Mr.B.- Bwahahahahaha! I've seen that t-shirt, cracks me up!
Nanc- Are you going to e-mail me? Or am I going to have to leave you off my "Special People" list?


MissingLink said...

Are you sure it was a bloke?
Some ladies look real butch these days.

Brooke said...

Was he buying chicken, 'cause he could've been... Oh, nevermind. :/

kuhnkat said...

My most popular t-shirt had one of those Sunny Happy Faces on it. The mouth had a little tongue slightly protruding.

Above the Happy Face were the words:

Sit On A

And below the Happy Face were the words:

Haapy Face.


nanc said...

well, it had bushy eyebrows and a hint of a mustache...and normally i notice what's in others shopping carts, but for the life of me i cannot remember what he had in his!

i'm already pretty special, tmw - if it's about the prayer chain, i'm there most of the time - i have much to be thankful for and much to pray for.

The Merry Widow said...

Okay, can you get the requests from Warren, AoW or Donal? I just like to have my waterfowl in sequential order, before I shoot them! Or send them messages!


eyesallaround said...

Ever try Birkenstocks? My sister, the liberal Canadian, was down for a visit last weekend, and had some. They are really comfortable!

nanc said...

don't tell anybody eyes, but i've had the same pair of birkies since 1980 - of course i wore them for a few years and put them into the nanc shoe hall of shame, but they're still like new - you must treat the cork and get new soles once in awhile, but otherwise they are perfect shoes for feet that long to be comfie.

tmw - i don't know if warren is speaking to me. and i do have an e-mail in to donal.

Mad Zionist said...

What the hell's a "cullotte"?

Warren said...

Of course I'm speaking to you.

Why would I not?

nanc said...

madze - culottes are like form-fitting shorts that flare out at the thigh to knee length-type long shorts - they're for girls!

warren - i was just seeing if i could draw you out of your lair!

how have you been?

i believe my comp troubles are over - it seems the phone company had some sort of power blocker up that was not only affecting my dsl but several others! i'd make comments somewhere and my dsl would just shut down!

got rid of the trojan horse and hopefully all is well. didja miss me?

nanc said...

could you be more specific, anonymous? you're about as clear as an egg yolk.

Elmer's Brother said...

nanc I know you will like this one - no really like it

I saw a guy at the gas station wearing a kilt, a pony tail and cowboy boots...your kind of man I know

Kelly said...

nanc, I would wonder (big time) if the guy had had sparkly decals on the big toe and a ring on another toe.

and ...thanks for stopping by, Nanc :)

The Merry Widow said...

Are we coming up on another full moon? Or is it the dark of the moon? Weird critters are showing up! All over, physically and virtually! I need more coffee to read that "person's" post.
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!


The Merry Widow said...

Oh Nanc- The proper shoes for culottes are those cute little kitten heeled sandels!


nanc said...

elbro - there is NO THING wrong with a rugged man in a kilt! NO THING!

tmw - so if he were wearing the kitten heeled sandles - he would have been a-okay in the fashion books?

kelly - thanks for stopping by - no jewlry in the short scan i did.

The Merry Widow said...

Were it's legs waxed? You really need to wax your legs(IF you're a guy) in culottes and kitten heels!


nanc said...

oops - sandals, not "sandles"!

i don't recall if his legs were waxed, tmw - but it seems he was not the kind of guy who would do that. seven or eight seconds is great for staying on a bull, but not quite long enough to get to know someone.

Always On Watch said...


Where is that? I've gotta read when our future Prez is saying.


If it doesn't wax its legs, there truly must be some, uh, gender confusion.

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

I have nothing to do with whatever that link leads to.

PhoenixFire said...

Looks like u guys r having over here without me so i think ill drop in hmm ill come back l8r if i remember any odd t's. o.t.

nanc said...

english please, mr. fire. odd tees are fine, but this is about men who paint their nails!

just kidding - welcome to you, son of tmw.

nanc said...

T M W!!! front and center! he doesn't speak like that does he? if so, have you tried snapping him in the cheek with a thick produce rubberband as he sleeps? it works!

beakerkin said...

Hmm this sounds like Ducky

nanc said...

beak - it's tmw's son!

The Merry Widow said...

Nanc- He plays Mythwars and thats how they type really fast in the middle of a fight! hahahahaha, you should see my daughter(who has dyslexia), someone has to be nearby to check spelling, at least she's trying!
Beaker- It really is my son, sorry, I couldn't even read most of it! He goes geeky on me and I get lost myself! I think he said if he remembered any funny t-shirts he'd tell you! This is what happens when he plays a game online with people from Portugal, India, Taiwan... I will talk to him about using English as a first language here though!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!


nanc said...

no problem, tmw - i was just kidding. i thought it was funny that beak thought he was someone else.

Elmer's Brother said...

nanc - yeah but COWBOY BOOTS?

The Merry Widow said...

Warren made me an avatar! And it's beautiful, I'll let him unveil it! He done real good!


nanc said...

elbro - why not?
