I am the stupidest man on the face of the earth.

October 17, 2008

So I met this lovely young woman in a bar a month or so ago, and it turns out she takes her clothes off for a living.  Being a naturally curious person, (yeah right), I enjoyed talking with her about her hopes, dreams, and underwear.  Turns out, she is also a stand up comic.  We talked about this, and I told her that I had tried stand-up and was exceptionally un-funny.  I think my stategery was to appear vulnerable.  I also may have asked her about her relationship with her father, I don’t remember.

Anyway, she texted me today to tell me that she’s doing a big show at the Bagdad (correct spelling) tonight, a big room to do comedy (or anything).  I called and wished her luck, and suggested she shouldn’t be nervous.  It was only later that I realized how ridiculous it was for me to tell her that.  This is a woman who TAKES HER CLOTHES OFF in front of strangers for a living!  This is a woman who walks up to horny weirdos, turns around, bends over, and winks at them BETWEEN HER KNEES.  (Certain men desperately looking for a link, at this point).

I’m guessing she won’t be nervous.
