nah, **** it. i was at my back to work programme thing today, and i got kind of a crush on the woman who's running it. she's quite hot. fair bit older than me but hot none the less.
anyway, i like to have a laugh and joke and be a bit risky, y'know? so i can feed her ideas without saying them. because it's a government thing, and a controlled environment, and an official office type feel to the place, y'know? so don't want to go too far. and i'm pretty sure she finds it fun. she's told me i'm her favourite person that goes there. interpret that anyway you like it's still good. she's told me i'm funny and should do stand-up. she even asked if i was single which, fair enough, that's not quite taking her skirt off, but me trying to get a sense of where i stand i could definitely be doing worse.
should probably add it's not just sex jokes all the time, i'm not being a creep. and i laugh and joke with everybody there, not just her. just some stuff is a bit closer to the mark than others.
anyway, usually i'm quite restrained and thoughtful about what i say. outside i can be kind of explicit and just say the first thing that comes to mind and i don't do that there, and usually she's been okay with it and quite receptive in a nice friendly way. i've over done it a couple a times and got the look of "what you said literally wasn't too bad but i know what you meant and you can't be like that here" you know the one. it's a face that looks somewhere between shocked and serious. but most of the time i'm good and on it.
but not today. jeez. i was doing my usual shit and making her laugh and grabbing all of her attention. like you do. not hard. the rest of the gang are female or near 50. and she's laughing and joking back and usual chit-chat. then i see something awesome. the guy on the opposite side of the table from me has a shirt that says on the front "sex instructor, first lesson free" and i went to him "dude, superman, her. show her what your shirt says" and he does and she laughs. but then, *slaps self in head* then she says "i could do with one of them". and i knew i shouldn't of said it, but i said it anyway.
"what the shirt or the lesson?" and foom everyone stares at me; room goes silent; the girl is not happy. that lasted for about a second before i just shrugged my shoulders and went "whoops?" all jokingly and the moment passed but she didn't like that at all. she didn't bat an eye lid at my stuff for the rest of the session even after i'd got the rest of the people back on side. i even went through my whole "do you think yoda claims disability" bit and she turned round very quickly and said "he's a jedi. i don't think he needs it" before i could even get in to any more little jokes.
like, i know he's a jedi, that's why it's funny.
i knew it was a dodgy one as i was saying it, and i thought and said it too quick to think about if i should say it or not. but i dunno what the fuss was over. man, see how she is tomorrow but that might have blown me right out of her good books.
