- Me: Check it out, 311 and The Offspring are going on tour together.
- Brother: Ooh! When? 1995?
I went out to dinner with my family tonight, and halfway through our meal I noticed two large men walk into the restaurant. After a double and triple take, I realized that they were WWF wrestlers. The rest of dinner, I felt equal parts weirded out and embarrassed that I knew who they were.
But, the situation did lend itself to some classic observations by my brother. My personal favorite:
Do you think it’d be weird if I talked to them? But then, what would I say? “Hi. Excuse me. Hello. When I was in middle school, I used to watch you two wrestle each other in your underwear!”
Yeah…I don’t think that would go over too well. Maybe I could just tell them it’s weird for me to see them in normal clothes? But then that would lead me into asking them to take off their clothes and throw chairs at each others faces.
What if I just asked to take a picture with them, and I took MY pants off? Hmmm..that might make them angry. And then they’d pretend to beat me up…
That would be sad. Nevermind. Let’s just go home.
