8 thoughts on “Why I Have the Best Boyfriend Ever, In One Short Sentence

  1. I can only imagine the pain and anguish such a statement would have caused had I said it to a couple of my girlfriends past.

    Shouldn’t that be thiner? 😉

  2. You know, I’m not parsing out the details on this one. Thin is thin, and I’m quite confident that there was no implied contrary to fact.

    Perhaps this response serves to demonstrate why I, in turn, am the best girlfriend ever.

  3. Yikes. My sister, at age three, had a man coming up behind her in a grocery store aisle say “excuse me, son” to her. She has never recovered. Her hair has never since been shorter than shoulder length, and I doubt it ever will be.

  4. That’s funny. Whenever I let my hair grow out for a few months, I start hearing “ma’am” and “miss”–followed either by a silent refusal to acknowledge the mistake or profuse apologies. Both are amusing. As one supermarket cashier explained, “And then I looked at you and thought, ‘That’s not a ma’am–that’s a man!'”

    But my funniest case of mistaken gender was when I was behind the counter at my parents’ (plus-size women’s clothing) store and two dudes walked in around closing time. Eventually, one guy whispered none-too-quietly to the other, “Dude, that’s a guy!”
