Okay, so I’m in the locker room yesterday, and a guy comes walking in. I’m changing into my street clothes to leave, he’s preparing to change into his gym clothes. I barely even notice him show up, being concerned primarily with packing up my shit.
Then he turns to me and says, “Are you singing the theme from Kim Possible?”
Once I hear him say this, two things run through my mind.
First, the guy has just about the most stereotypically gay voice you can have without lisping.
Second, that I have indeed been unconsciously singing the theme from Kim Possible in the locker room.
So I get that deer-in-headlights look, like we all get whenever we get caught doing something so monumentally stupid that we can barely believe we were doing it, and then decide to play it off. So I say, “Of course not. Whyever would you think that?”
Which doesn’t fool him one bit, as he leans over and stage-whispers “I watch it too!”
So we share a bit of a geek moment about this, and as I’m picking up my bag to go, he says “Maybe we could work out together sometime.”
But not exactly like that; more like:
“Maybe we could (…pause…) work out together (…pause…) sometime.”
Which explains the voice, I guess.
So I just shrug and say “Maybe,” then get my butt out of the locker room.
I thought this was pretty funny, so I figured I’d share. At least gay men think I’m worth hitting on; that says something, I guess.
Or maybe it’s just that straight guys don’t watch Kim Possible.
