I get serious bed head. I never leave the house without taking a shower and getting my hair under control. Sunday Morning I knew I was going to do yard work first thing so I did not bother to take a shower. I went out and pulled some weeds for a while, moved some stuff around then went to mow. The lawn mower was low on oil and I did not have any so I went to get some. The video store is right across the street from the auto parts store so I figured 'kill two birds' and grabbed an overdue movie on the way out the door.

While I was paying the extra charge on the movie I humorously flirted with the counter girl just a *little*. Usually I get a grin or if nothing else I get a condescending smile or even a "come hither" eye roll. ;) This lady would not even make eye contact though. Odd.

As I climbed back in the truck I caught a look at myself in the mirror, wild hair, unshaven, dirty clothes suitable for yard work and I had already worked up a good sweat that morning. Well Efffing DUH! No wonder she was terrified of what surely appeared to be a Nick Nolte or Gary Busey flirting with her!

I'd be scared too!

Bed head isn't that bad. I am sure you're the envy of all the bald guys ;).

Seriously funny though and that picture of Nick Nolte speaks volumes LMAO.

It's evidence of how highly evolved you are that you realized something was a bit off, and figured out what it was. Most guys I know would just be like, "huh, wonder what HER problem was."

If it's any consolation, I often (like, um, today!) find myself going out of the house in a state like that (well, maybe closer to the Gary Busey pic). The only saving grace is the hair - it's pretty long, so I just put it in a ponytail and look partway human.

Can't help you on the sweat, tho. Sorry :)

I wonder if she has a blog and blogged about it. Can you imagine. LOL!

Robin said...

At least you have your look to blame her reaction on. What if you got that reaction when you were lookin' good?

WomensDaily said...

that's okay. Just go back and hit on her when you look cleaned up lol.

Ha ha ha!! I've had a flirty moment too where I got funny looks-turns out I had a glob of lipgloss in the corner of my lip. Ick.

Better grab a hat next time. :)

Gary Busey is scary especially after he attacked Jennifer Gardner and that 12 year old at the Oscars.

Tanya said...

looking like that its a good thing you didn't get mistaken for a serial killer. What movies did you get?

Beth said...

Kat- I had not thought of the bald guys! LOL!

Mz. Lizzy- Yeah, you can use that one to scare children into behaving! :) Nick Nolte starring as “The Boogey Man!”

Astrogirl- I don’t know about evolved but the rule I learned was “flirt a little, if you get positive response flirt a little more gradually escalating. If you don’t get a positive response then - STOP!” I have seen too many guys who seem to think no positive response means just flirt harder. Sad.

OhMommy- I think I found her blog!!!!!!!! :)

WomensDaily- yeah, she might not recognize me so it will be like a fresh start!

CrazyMomma- Amazing huh?

Mags- Awwww, on the grand scale of things a little lipstick in the wrong place is not too bad. I mean it’s not dress in the panties bad! :)

Tammy- Yeah, I need a SWA hat!

Stephanie- Oh man! I had not heard about that. I am gonna have to google now!

Tanya- See the next post! ;)

Beth- Are you kidding? No way! I am not as brave as you!
