I need to take off my shoes before I open my mouth

>> Tuesday, August 10, 2010

Have you ever asked someone a question, and then ask yourself why the hell did I just ask that? We all blurt things out and wish later we had said it better or not at all. It’s just not me right? Right.

I must have a taste for foot, because I’m doing that more and more lately. Some say it’s being “out spoken” I say it’s getting older and not caring so much about how others see me. Take me as I am or leave me as I am.  Fighting to be something I'm not just so others like me is a thing of the past. 

Like last week I was having a conversation with a friend, the conversation was going well until I felt the uncontrollable urge to ask him a question.    Being that this friend is gay he must know all things gay related.  I am after all an expert on all things woman, mother, wife....NOT.   True to form I blast the question and as the words where spilling from my mouth I was kicking myself in the butt.  

Me:  I've got a questions for ya, before I was married I dated like five different guys that are now gay.  What is with me that I attracted men that where confused sexually?   Do you think its cause I'm like a Tom boy or something? 

Friend: I don't know, I think its just chance, its not like you can turn someone gay or all gay men hide in the closet with the same kind of girl.

Yup, I felt like a dumb ass? I don’t know why I couldn't stop myself from asking him this burning question, I have no excuse. Like he’s going to know what my issues where that I went for men that where emotionally unavailable.  Poor guy, lucky he has a good sense of humor, but now he’ll never let me live that one down.

Maybe, just maybe, I just wanted him to tell me that I'm so fricking hot that any man, gay or straight, would want to be with me.   That's got to be it, right?  Right...RIGHT!

Let the world know you as you are, not as you think you should be, because sooner or later, if you are posing, you will forget the pose, and then where are you? ~Fanny Brice

I have had MAJOR "Insert Foot in Mouth" Syndrome lately, too! (You've inspired me to share a story of mine . . . I'll have to blog about it later in the week!) So, I have totally been there before. (And, for the record, I once dated a guy who years later shared that he was gay - major "seriously?" episode in my life.) It sounds like your friend took it well, so don't worry about it!!!

LOL-I think that was a reasonable question to ask, actually! I dated at least 2 guys who ended up being gay. (One of them basically stalked me, actually) But the thing is, I didn't go after them, they went after me! I wonder why? Was I just "safe" for them or something? Maybe you should ask your friend for me! (just kidding, unless you really want too, since your used to the taste of feet and all....)

Don't beat yourself up.....if that was putting your foot in your mouth, oh boy, have I got some doozies.

And of course you're hot!! That's the reason!

Oh please. That's nothing. I'm sure he was amused by it. I've had some doosies in the past. I think we all say goofy things from time to time. Don't sweat it! :)

I would have asked the same thing. He probably really didn't think that much about it. It could have been worse!

Since the number was 5 I would be wondering the same thing too....

Lynn August 11, 2010 at 8:49 AM  

Totally reasonable question! Especially if the number is truly 5...holy cow. I would go with your last assumption though...clearly irresistible to all men regardless of orientation.
