That title sure makes this seem like a different kind of post, but alas... it's not. It's just that it's HOT... The kind of heat that makes you sweat even before you've done anything remotely related to moving. Needless to say, I haven't moved all that much this past weekend.
There is a thing that happens in the city, when it gets hot enough to fry something on the pavement...; men go into heat. Now this probably has alot to do with the fact that, in this type of weather, women tend to wear practically nothing in an attempt to cool off. We all know from experience that when a woman wears very little, men get... well... stupid. How else can you explain what makes a man deem it necessary to yell catcalls from their car at a woman who's minding her own business (and usually walking in the opposite direction)? What is it that they expect us to do? Do they think that they are so compelling that we'll just jump in with them at the mere sound of their voice? I've often wondered what a catcalling man would do if I did get into his car. I imagine it would go a little like this:
Guy: Hey Baby! You lookin' good enough to eat! Come over here and let's have some fun!
Me (walking up to the car): Ok, I think I will. Thanks for the compliment.
Guy (looking a little nervous): uhh... umm... ok...
Me (reaching for the door): What's the matter, I thought that you wanted us to have some fun?
Guy (looking towards the ground, thoroughly embarrassed and stuttering): Well... uh... It's just that I was... uh... on my way to work... and then I've got this appointment... so I don't really have time to... uh... have fun.
Me (barely containing my laughter): Well don't waste my time!
KC, my cousin, had a recent experience with a stupid man who does repairs in her building. He came up to her apartment to fix something, and when her mother left the apartment a little while later, he decided it might just be the right time to proposition her (creepy). Of course, when KC told him "no", he told her that if it was her mother that was keeping her from going out with him, then they wouldn't have to let her know. It could be their secret?!?! (super creepy *). It's extremely sad that he would actually think that the only thing standing in the way of getting his "dirty old man" hands on my cousin, was her mother... and not the fact that he's a creepy, old, and extremely unattractive man... He must be in heat!
*Side note: Mr. Repairman is probably under the delusion that he's not the least bit creepy (sort of like Jacko is of the delusion that having little boys sleep over in a grown man's bed isn't creepy at all!!- but don't get me started on that).
