‘I Mean, You Two Look Like You’re Having A Good Time’

Saturday night I found myself leaving a theater party because Nick and I didn’t really know anybody there, and because I decided to give Charles in Charge (a friend from Habitat) a call and as it turns out he was having a get-together at his place. We shuffle our way over there; I catch up with some people, Nick makes some friends, we both get sticky notes with our names and descriptions on them from Jose, it’s a good time.

By this point in the night he and I had consumed quite a bit and we collectively decided to slow it down a bit. We’re sitting there on Chuck’s couch talking, occasionally leaning on each other (again, we’d had a lot) when Nick heads upstairs to the bathroom. Around the same time, these two people whom nobody recognizes walk into the apartment and head straight upstairs. Partygoers are confused, and four of us decide to head upstairs to see what’s what.

Since inebriation has this tendency to make people lose focus on what they’re doing, right in front of the stairs a barely-standing Jose pulls me aside and lets stumble out something along the lines of, “so this Nick guy…are you guys like going out or something?” He insisted someone else asked him to ask me, and given that right after I told him that Nick and I weren’t an item he leaned over and whispered something to someone else, I believed him. Two days after the fact I’m not sure what to make of that odd question. The person who asked him to ask doesn’t drink so we can’t blame it on the a-a-a-a-a-alcohol, either. I didn’t even know they knew. Maybe they’re just lost in confusion? Crazy ass white people.

Yes, we white people are crazy. I’ve been in similar situations to the one you’ve described. To make matters worse, I get it from my family. Unavoidable bullshit I’m forced to put up with. I don’t think you ever get used to it.


Woozie
said…

Yeah, I can’t imagine getting it from my family. It didn’t really bother me, it was just very very odd is all.

Um, I seem to be having difficulty deciphering what exactly is the concern here. At first I thought your post was heading in the direction of — “two people whom nobody recognizes walk into the apartment and head straight upstairs and beat the ever loving snot outta Nick”. But no, I read on only to discover that some crazy white person asked you only if the two of you were going out. Hmmm…doesn’t seem to me to be a lot of hostility in that question. Maybe a wee bit of presumption and perhaps nosiness, but otherwise quite benign. So, what is the deal here?

Queer inebriation speculation.

…and it’s the whities that are crazy?

Jose is a white guy?

Like Omar I feel that there is a missing piece to your story ? NO?

I mean are you saying that you thought they thought you are straight so when they made the leap that because you were there with a guy that you are gay that it puzzled you?

Inquiring minds need futher information to fully understand the dynamics of the situation.

I’mwith the others – I don’t get what the big deal is. Peole ask others if they are an item all the time. (But the video was funny.)

Omar: No concern, just something odd I wanted to post about.

IH: Yes. “Crazy ass white people” is my catchphrase.

Raspootin: Jose is a white guy, it’s what he started calling himself to be funny.

I guess I thought they thought I was straight; I’m not one of those obvious gays so I treat it like an open secret. Observant people (or those who happen to look at my facebook page’s “interested in”) will find out what’s really going on quite easily though, and I don’t mind if they do or not.

There isn’t really any more relevant information to divulge. Nick was fine, it turns out the two guys were friends of Chuck’s roommate, and Nick and I left around 1:30. He almost passed out in an intramural field, then a parking lot, then we hung out with a sober friend at his dorm hall, and we parted ways for bed.


Woozie
said…

Citizen: Like I said, I wasn’t making a big deal out of it. I’m not threatened or offended or anything, I just think it’s strange that someone out-and-out asked, or that someone had to ask someone else to ask for them.

I don’t know if you are gay or not, and I could care less. I just think that you are plain weird when your blog used to make more sense.


thimscool
said…

Hear, here! He is plain weird.

And this blog did used to make more sense… but then he went to college.

I warned him, and told him to let us go peacefully… but NOOOO. Various sycophants insisted that he keep up the pretense of an online social life in the wake of his college experience for their own selfish satiation. An woozie cheerfully clung to his umbilical chord of nostalgic squanderlust.

Now we get forkatio and soap opera jetsam… with the occasional halfhearted political rant or semi-interested comment.

Omar said it best. F+

Move on, Woozie. Be free!

I hate those crazy ass white people, but I love that song. The first time I heard it was the morning after my 21st birthday party, which I thought was quite fitting.

So, you guys aren’t into each other?

I wanted to let you know, by the way, that I have a new blog. Just follow my profile to get there.

maybe its a white thing, cuz it seems normal to me.

Darn, I keep trying to comment but it doesn’t stick.

As I was saying, it sounds like Jose’s friend likes either you or Nick and wanted to know if he had a chance. I hope you didn’t scare him away with drunken tomfoolery. :p


thimscool
said…

I am free, Raspy.

I’ve no perceived obligation to any fan base, like our friend Woozie here.

If he goes without posting for more than a few days, Omar goes wobbly.

Woozie, you are living a wonderful part of life where responsibilities are few, opportunities are many, and your adult persona is coming into focus. I’m just advising that you shed any sense of duty to the fawning fan base here.

You recently commented that it felt better to post when you actually had something to say, rather than hammering something out each day. But in the old days you hammered out a lot of talent every day. Now you are distracted, and that is as it should be. Consider embracing that.

Anyway, I’ll shut up now. I’m afraid I’ll give Raspy and Omar a nasty rash of hives. Do what you want… I would expect no less.

How is this a white thing? I don’t even think its a gay thing, I think you’re reading into nothing. In fact, I don’t know what this post is even about. Someone asked about you??


thimscool

In the words of Unokhan, “zacklee, honee”.


Woozie
said…

The only relevance “crazy ass white people” has to anything is that the people who asked me were white. It’s just a phrase I use people. Not everything I write has some set of deeper implications, sometimes what it appears to be is zacklee what it is.
