Blogger Uses Move At Party That Might Have Looked Cheesy From Afar.



So I'm at the cocktail party last night. I had a great time. It was too bad because my wife has had a sinus infection so she didn't go.

So I'm talking to this hot MILF and after a while we're laughing hysterically. Nothing wrong with that. And we're really cracking up. You know - at funny things I was saying and stuff. And all this is happening in the corner of what they call the Butler's Pantry. Pretty fancy huh? Then as we're talking I lean my elbow up to the wall for a second. Elbow at head level and forearm extended up the wall.

Then I realize that this is a prime, stereotypical cheeseball flirting move. So I caught myself and returned to normal standing position. I bet that move is a normal male flirt instinct. I'm going to have to look that one up in a body language journal or something.

Or it could have something to do with the primal desire of chicks wanting to get a wiff of dude's pits. Who knows?

I'm going with natural male flirt instinct- I' not a fan of the pit smell- reminds me of the silver back gorilla!

Andy said...

I know exactly the move you're talking about. You didn't follow that up with a wink-and-gun thing, did you?

SkylersDad said...

The true litmus test is how many gold chains were you wearing?

sista #2 said...

Was your shirt unbuttoned halfway down so that the hairy man chest was showing????

Another thing....you can take the rolled up sock out of your pants now.

peace

Wait. Gold chains a a buttoned down shirt?

That could make for a suave look. I'm gonna look into that.

Jeannie said...

Or maybe you'd just had too much to drink and needed to steady yourself.

In body language, I think that pose means your are relaxed and open and very comfortable with the person. Your wife might not have appreciated that.

Slyde said...

ive done that same thing, where im talkint to a chick and totally NOT hitting on her, but then i do something that would totally LOOK like i was... mucho embarassing..

words words words said...

I think it was just a result of the male aversion to standing up straight when there is something to lean on.

As a side note, I was sure this story was going to end with your elbow leaning against something unsteady, causing you to tumble to the ground. Then I realized you're not Chevy Chase.

I think you have that particular bit of body language wrong. That is the stance when at the corner urinal of a crowded men's room of, "Damn, I can't pee in front of so many people, so I need to relax by leaning on the wall and concentrating on my mother-in-law."

I suppose it could apply to making moves, also...but, most likely would attract the wrong gender...depending on your preferences, of course.

Gwen said...

From afar? Sadly, no. This is a move whose cheesiness increases with proximity.

Scope said...

I would have just assumed you were adjusting sight angles for a better look down her blouse.

Not that I would attempt of condone such a move myself. I, I, I, think I heard a guy mention it once.

You can't be intellectible and desirable at the same time- it doesn't work for you.. Pick one, and live with the other...Also, security codes are stupid gay..

diane said...

I'm right there with Words, Words, Words. Except I thought maybe you were going to put your whole arm into something really gross (or something like that). Which leads to the question, why do we have a slapstick perception of you? Is this the direction you wanted/expected your image to go? And is it too late to ever be taken seriously again? Also, if your wife had seen "the move", would she have burst out laughing at your lack of suave, thinking to herself "You gotta love him".

Robin said...

So I the only one who would have dragged you into a spare bedroom and ripped off all of your clothes? ;)
Oh wait. The MARRIED thing. That's right.

raf said...

I hope you didn't have a patch of sweat showing off with this move..

Debbie said...

I'm thinking your first instinct was right - that move is coded on your genes somehow! I think anyone would recognize it.

Dr Zibbs said...

Robin - you're right but if you force me and overpower me I guess there's nothing I can do.

Greta said...

I'm so proud you caught yourself, Zibbs! Shows progressiveness! High fives!

Cameron said...

Zibbsy, you are one smooth operator. It's probably good that you restrained yourself, I can only imagine the outcome would have been like one of those Axe commercials, where the women just jump your bones.

buffalodick said...

You piece of crap, you did everything right- I'm proud of you, keep up the god(bad) work...

Dr Zibbs said...

Cameron - good points but I'm partial to High Karate cologne commercials.

Vic said...

I got all hung up at "hot MILF", and then the nausea kicked in. :)

I think this move comes from the monkeys - a 'smell my scent' move.

LYDIA said...

Was that chick from the party? She is hot!

Dr Zibbs said...

Lydia - that's not her but she was smokin' hot like that.

Cora said...

I'm with Words, I thought you were going to fall or something there. Go figure. Okay, so can you now go back and retell the tale and make it so you fall? Or she falls, I'm not picky.

Dr Zibbs said...

Cora - I'll video tape the re-enactment and mail it to you.

Kez said...

Whoa. That never occured to me. My husband does that a lot now that I think of it...in fact his facebook is of him doing that...
The information you've armed me with (armed haha) is going to get him in terrible trouble!
You just sabotaged the brotherhood.

Dr Zibbs said...

Kez - I hate to tell you this but it looks like he may be cheating on you. Find a good support group.
