God damn, it happened to me twice today. Once at the dentist, and once at the hairdresser's. "Are you from ______ originally?" (hygienist) "What are your plans this summer?" (hairdresser) etc. Not a big deal, except both times today the conversation somehow turned to my relationship status. I just don't know how to tell them I met my girlfriend on GrassCity. I'm not embarrassed, it's just... I don't even wanna get into that and I don't like lying but I always say we met on a music forum. "Oh yeah, we met online." Usually the reply is "Oh wow. That must be tough, the distance and what not." But today, the prissy little hairdresser goes as far as to say "How many times have you been to see each other?" (being that it's an LDR) and when I tell her, she says: "Oh, why is it so hard to just find someone around here?" BECAUSE ALL THE WOMEN ARE LIKE YOU! Of course I didn't say that. What I'm wondering is, do you all just lie in these situations when they become awkward? Because they always become awkward. My dentist called me hippy Jesus today and told me to audition for a pageant. And he always announces to the random dental hygienist that my front teeth looked like shit up until three years ago when I got them capped. "Looked like they had already been prepped for dental work, all filed down" etc. Like, could you fuck off mate? Is that the water cooler story that's been working for you the past little while?
