These next few posts will be Warped Tour 2012.
For ten years I've wanted to go to The Vans Warped Tour, for years it either came to town while I went one vacation, or all the bands I wasn't into. But this year, after my experiment with Pink hair, I decided this was my year to go.
For the next few days I will be blogging about the lessons I learned, and the bands I saw.
Today's lesson: Failed pick up line
So during Mayday Parade (one of my all time favorite bands) I overhead this conversation.
Pretty Girl: I can't inhale
Stoner Boy: Oh I can teach you---
Yes Stoner Boy, this is knowledge you need to pass on to other people. (One a side note--- considering it was the WARPED TOUR... a concert event for Alt rock, metal and Skaters... you would think there would be a lot more illegal substances, but there wasn't any more or less then at any other concert experience.)
A few minutes later after she seemed not really interested in his lessons, Stoner Boy has not given up on his quest to woo the Pretty Girl.
In his versions of a sexy voice he said, "You smell good."
Pretty Girl: what? (Unsure if she had heard him right)
Stoner boy: You smell good.
Oh yes, the compliment every girl longs to hear from a guy who has smoked so much pot he's openly bragging about not returning to high school, from a guy who has lost all sense of smell himself.
Look I'm going to be honest with you, "you smell good," ONLY works in a compliment in a novel or a movie. Mostly because the reader CAN'T SMELL the character. But in REAL LIFE-- unless you're blind, it's impossible to tell someone--- ANYONE you smell good, without looking like a creeper.
And how did the pretty girl react?
I know, dear readers, you were SHOCKED by the outcome.
The band came on the stage and they all lit up. Hubby and I left to watch the band in a less hazy area.
