Diner Yack - 2

'tis been around an year to this incident and here is how i recall it. 'twere those days in school a li'l while before my defense when working through the nights was a given... It was 7-ish in the morning, casually dressed in faded denims, a checked white shirt and a grey sweater, i stepped out of my apartment flipping on my new black leather sandals... I was headed to Jack-in-the-box for a quick breakfast. Like i've mentioned before, i went there often because more usually than not, my meals there were either oversized or underpaid... and all for flashing a smile and saying a loud good whatever-part-of-the-day-it-was. Let me just take a second to thank the lady at the counter who apparently "liked my t-shirts"...

Anyway... so on this particular day, there's this group of 3 (a guy n 2 girls) at the counter, standing right in front. All three of them in torn jeans, sweats and pumps...

Girl1: How do i look today ?

Guy: The usual. Good.

Girl1: And my hair ?

Guy: it's the same isn't it ??? "no styling points there..."

Girl1 @ 2: What do u think ?

Girl2: Oh my Goooooood... Did u get those cherry colored highlights ???

Girl1 @ Guy: Seeeee... you don't pay attention... and yada yada yada.. blah blah blah

And i can't stop grinning... The three of 'em fetch their order and move to a table where they continue their high decibel yack. After a few minutes, I fetch my tray and seat my behind on a table right across their table, eager to catch up on their conversation. Much to my surprise, the guy waves his hands to catch my attention.

Guy: How you doin ?

Me: How yooooou doin ?

Guy: Mind if i ask you a question ? These girls here wonder if you're gay !!!

A very discombobulated Me: NO. I'M NOT.

Guy: Just that you look so prim and there's a gay parade today.

Me: I'm headed to no gay parade. I've an exam to take in a while.

Guy: So, dressing well is a feel-good exam thing ?

By this time i've had it and want to end the conversation.

Me: No. I dress natty for a prof of mine who i suppose is gay. Urgh.

And i walk off...
