Ok so how awkward is this......
While preparing for a huge project meeting at work today it was me and my co-worker the evangelical christian... .alone.... in a big conference room...by ourselves. And this is the conversation that ensued:
Dale: So (in the interest of conversation ) big plans for VD?
Borney: Oh I'm going over to one of my single friends apartments for a prayer group.
Dale: Oh...... fun.
Borney: Yeah it's a fun co-ed group, we pray for our future spouses
Dale: (thinking --> I may say a silent prayer for whomever is desperate enough to marry your whacked out A$$ too...) Actually said... oh.... fun.
Borney: Any plans? Are you going out with your girlfriend??
*Now at this point I'm second guessing myself as to whether she said what I think she said. That's right everyone.... she thought that yours truly was not only straight but involved with a lucky dame*
The thoughts then rush through my head... "what do I do, should I just out and out point at my face and say... oh honey, aren't you a dear.... no no no I'm a big ole mo." What did I do?? besides the awkward robot dance???
Dale: Oh ha ha ha ha, nope, haven't had one of those since I was 14.
Borney: Oh..... well you're welcome to come to the prayer circle, should be a nice co-ed group of people
Dale: *thinking* "hmmm I wonder if there are any hot guys there.... after all if Latter Days has taught me anything......" *speaking* "Oh thanks but I'm going to crawl into bed with some chinese food and a good movie"
That would be the first and only time that someone has mistook me for a member of the rougher species (Ro)... This awkward robot dance DC Gay of our life moment is brought to you by the color fuschia and the punctuation mark ?
