@Nutellaface You are not the only one who thinks he's 100% in on the joke! I mean, obviously he is. And if i were of the personality to do such a thing, I would totally go to that wedding with him based on the dance photo alone.
@Lily Rowan Well said, and totally agreed.
Thank you list-maker and commenters for giving me all the laughs I ever wanted. Good stuff.
@supernovice I actually gagged reading that. Hork.
@minijen I'm curious about this too! I used to do the kiss parents goodnight on the lips thing too, when I was a kid. I don't remember when it stopped but probably around puberty. We don't do it now, but we do hug.
@Jolie Kerr I still make my bed every day too, and every day i can't believe i'm doing it. I was an avowed non-bed maker my entire life. Granted I make it very, very poorly, but it makes me happy every day nonetheless.
Just adding to the love of this piece. Really enjoyable.
@angermonkey @shoop You know that's such a good point to make. It's easy to fall in love with the bonkers/incompetent/lazy/mean/and so on people because there are SO damn many of them (possibly, as someone upstream commented, imported from some alien planet to horrify us all), but it is just as easy to fall in love with the really good ones. And they're out there, just a little less prolific.
@shoop Ooooh honey, I'm glad you got out of that. It's fine for him to be an Artiste who Damns the Man blah blah, but he needs to be with a lady who does the same. Or at least a lady who thinks that's one-hundred percent swell and neato and has no concerns about any type of bigger picture there. So it's fine for him to be that guy (at 31 years old, no less! hoo boy), but making you feel bad for not being like him? THE WORST. Ughx100. I'm really sorry about your first love brain - we've all had it and it hurts. But it'll pass. And cinnamonskin is right - someday you and your friends will definitely laugh about it.
