Yes, I actually created one of those e-cards. If this goes viral, then know you saw it here first (not gonna lie, I’m kinda hoping it does).
Backstory: Last week I witnessed this dude approach some of my homegirls when we were at a sports bar watching the Laker game and all he said was, “Ay…can my group kick it wit ‘chall group?” My friends were sweet about it and politely declined the first few times, but he kept on persisting. I was crackin’ up b/c he just couldn’t take a hint…until one of the girls said, “NO thank you. We’re fine with who we’re with right now. WTF?! Who does that?” He finally caught her drift and walked away, not in another area at the bar, but literally six feet away from where we were (awk-waaaard).
A few days later, I told another friend this story and asked about some of the worst/corniest pickup lines she’s ever heard. Knowing that that’s not my steez, she asked me about for the cheesiest line I could think of and the one in this picture is the first thing that came to mind (though I guess it would be more for someone you already knew as opposed to someone you just met).
We laughed, but then she said, “Okay, but how far into the playoffs are we talking about?” This was a great question that eventually led to a whole breakdown of the different levels of “liking” someone. Maybe we’ll publish our groundbreaking results one day, but here are two of the main conclusions we drew:
1.) It’s one thing to miss a playoff game, but she must be one special girl to miss a Game 7 for (from the first round through the conference finals).
2.) If I were to miss Game 7 of the NBA FINALS, the one that determines who the champion would be, then she’s wifey material fo sho (though in an ideal world she wouldn’t put me in that position. Or better yet, she’d be right there with me screaming at the TV). haha.
Random conversations: gotta love ‘em!!
