Today’s Metro Lesson: Famous In My Own Mind

Some girl kept giving me funny looks on the Metro yesterday afternoon. Her eyes would dart suspiciously from my legs to my face to my legs. Up. Down. Up. I did my best to mind my own bee’s wax and file the incident under Metro Loony, but really, it was starting to freak me out. Just as I was debating if I should get off early or palm my mace, she whispered.

Random Girl (not wanting to break the Metro Code Of Silence): This is a long shot, but I think I recognize you.

Me (sure that I’d never seen her before and wondering if she’s Jeffrey Dahmer’s long lost love child): Oh?

Random Girl (pointing): It’s your tights. I saw them on this blog I read. And you look vaguely familiar. Like other pictures I’ve seen on there.

Me (realizing this is either the most spectacularly awesome thing that’s ever happened to me or the most crazy bizarre): Oh?

Random Girl (acting like she’d just touched Jesus. Or maybe more like his second cousin. Twice removed.): Are you the Roses girl?

Me (going with Awesome!): Yes, I am.

Random Girl (satisfied): I’d lose the tights.

    Congrats, Lady. That is an exciting moment!

    I’m still in shock. And half expecting to be abducted.

  3. Stella Says:

    Love that she hated on the tights.

    I thought you eradicated my argyle problem from memory?

  4. Gilahi Says:

    Ha! That’s terrific. You should have offered to autograph something for her.

    She could have sold it on eBay! Made a fortune!

  5. Arjewtino Says:

    Wow. Recognized by your clothes. That’s a first.

    I’m going to post a photo of my cuff links and see what happens.

    Do it! Do it!

  6. Herb Says:

    Well, so did you lose them? Right there on the Metro?

    Do not goad me, Herb. The results aren’t always pretty…

    At least she didn’t diss your shoes.
    ; )

    For that? I would have killed her.

  8. Brett Says:

    I would have given her a close up with your foot. Bitch.

    Ha!

    TOTALLY UNRELATED:

    WHAT THE FUCK.

    10 DAYS BEFORE MY DUE DATE IN PITTSBURGH? REALLY, FLEETWOOD MAC, REALLY? YOU ARE KIDDING YOURSELVES IF YOU THINK I’M NOT GOING.

    I swear. When I found out about this I had to stop my water from breaking 4 months early. I know they’ll add dates in Ohio, but come onnnnn! I’ve seen both Stevie and Lindsey while pregnant. I need to complete the trifecta of fucking awesome!

    March 10. I’m counting the days!

    If anyone ever recognized me from my blog? I think I’d cry of excitement.

    Yeah. Until they insult your tights. Then? War!
