(My ) TOUNGE (gets me into) TROUBLE
He knew he was hot.
Being the thoughtful girl I am, I bought him a shot for his special day.
Being the blunt girl I am I told him he looked rediculous.
"You're fucking gorgeous."
(Fake modest smile) "Thank you"
"Don't get offended. I know you want to be "different" with all your "punk" accessories and such. But you look like everyone else who is dressed the exact same way as you."
"You dress like that and I dress like this to be unique."
(I was dressed very "normal" in jeans, subtle make-up, curled hair, and a striped thermal shirt)
"Dude, you look like all the other kids who are dressed exactly like you. You're all trying to be "unique" but it doesn't work."
"I don't know you, and obviously it's none of my business, I just think it's funny."
"I got tatoos and piercing and shit to look different. It's just how I am."
"When I was your age I looked just like you. I used to be holey and got tattoos and whatever. But even then I didn't buy into an entire "counter trend."
Somehow, this didn't offend him. He just maintained his insistence that he is an individual.
I need to be nicer.
