Bragging Rights

{Photos by dad and me; wearing Sheinside swallowtail dress, Vince Camuto booties, Alexander Wang jacket}

My level of sarcasm often correspond with how stupid or corny a question is. Sometimes it comes off me being whitty, other times it scares the crap out of someone. Below actually happened last week on a date:

Guy: "So what's the most adventurous thing you've ever done?"
Me: "Hmm. Getting fingered by my brother while riding a horse. But he doesn't know that I'm his sister, but I do know that he's my brother."
Guy: "Well, that's definitely the craziest story I've heard in my life. Even beats my story of taking pictures for the newspaper in a top secret Jordanian military base while risking imprisonment."

There are so many things wrong with the above conversation. He's obviously not adventurous and just wants to brag to a point that he didn't even care that I'm into incest. Gross.

I hope that he will pass my story to all his friends until the day he tells it to someone outside his group in which they will look at him like a moron and say "dude, that's a scene from Game of Thrones".

  1. I like sarcasm, as long as it's not offending anyone. Nothing wrong with being a little sarcastic though :p

  3. wow. I can't believe he just took your response in stride. If someone said that to me, I'd be like 'WTF are you okay, and why didn't you say something to him?"

    Lovely dress. Clicked to buy it, but they are sold out. Sadness.

  5. First of all, love the dress and how it flows so beautifully with the wind. I wanna have shots like that! *Envy*

    And, well, thumbs up with your response. While reading it I was like... This sounds familiar. Oh yah, right, Game Of Thrones. LOL. I guess he was too excited to brag about his "adventure" that he missed the incest part. LOL

  10. Haha, I wonder if he was really even listening...he was so ready to share his story he may not have heard you. I wouldn't have known it was from the Game of Thrones, so regardless of my interest in you, my reaction to that story would probably have been, "Check please!!!" if we were on a first date. Unless it was LATE in the date and I'd already learned to recognize your sense of humor--plus, by then I would have known you didn't have a brother. :D

  23. You seriously make me laugh almost every time I ready your blog posts. Way to try to one-up you on your incest story. Loving the outfit too, a flowy dress paired with leather is a fab combo.

  42. looking good ms. julie. these photos reminded me of glam grunge girl ice skating. i don't know why. now about that date, how did he NOT know you were joking? unless he wasn't even paying attention to what you were actually saying, & was just focusing on his own story. next... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  43. yeah, thats maybe a red flag if he didn't bat an eye there... what a dork. I love the way that dress is flying in the breeze!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love the dress with the leather jacket. So gorgeous.

    And I don't even remember this scene from Game of Thrones... Maybe I missed one or am not up to date. This is not at all acceptable. And yes, it happens far too often that people ask a question without caring for, or listening to, the answer just so that they can talk about themselves. One of my ultimate pet peeves.
