'Phat' is a dumb word.

Boy approaches me and very politely says, "Excuse me. Um, my friend [points to the silhouette of another boy, lurking in the shadows] thinks you have a (ph/f)at ass."

[I think this must be intended as a compliment, but just to clarify,] "Phat, as in good?"

"Yeah, very nice." He holds up his hand in the astronaut's A-OK signal.

I dismiss him with, "OK, well tell him, 'thank you'."

A few minutes later, boy returns, "Excuse me. Is that your boyfriend?" He points to the general area where my companion was headed.

[Nevermind the truth; I know the correct answer to THAT question.] "Yes."

"OK, last question. Thanks." He reports back to his friend, and they leave me alone.

So, yes, Ben. I do get compliments. They're just usually from the wrong person.


  1. That is the funniest shit I've read today.

  2. Uh huh. Go ahead. Don't comment on your companion. Leave me in suspense.

  3. Hey, look! It's Kenny!

    Hi, Kenny!
