Let’s Make a Pact

9 Apr

Not one of those psycho suicide pacts where we all drink the kool-aid or where we put on or new white sneakers, cover ourselves up and take some poison so we can all leave our vessels and journey on to the next level.  No, not like that. 

This is a pact where we will exhibit good manners. 

Here it is.  Are you ready for it?  Let’s promise one another that if we see a friend with food in his/her teeth, that we will tell him/her, “Hey, friend.  You have food stuck in your teeth.”  Sure, if you want to mock him/her afterwards, by all means, go to town.  Just don’t let him/her walk around like a total freaking douche bag for the rest of the day.

This evening I went to dinner with my friend, KK.  She declined to mention that it looked like I had dipped one of my teeth into black tar.  Yeah, thanks grilled romaine salad for making me look like my teeth were rotting out of my mouth.  And thank you, KK, for letting me give the restaurant manager a big toothy grin on the way out.  Now I know why he recoiled in horror.

    I also extend this courtesy to friends who are “flying low” and “slippin’ a nip”. Unless it’s a hot nip – then I say nothing.

    Oh the nip slip! I would totally let my friends parade their nips around town. It’s the right thing to do for the people. -CS

    Or if you forgot to take a tag of a new clothing item. Or! If you buy a new blazer or whatever and forget to take the stitching out of the vent. Much cooler if someone lets you know WAY in advance…

    I love it when people walk around with those sticky tags on their clothes. 🙂 -CS

    How about a pact to call in anonymous bomb threats to get each other out of work? No takers, nobody?

    Oh, I like it! -CS

    Oh man… KK really dropped the friend ball there! Hmmm… perhaps you should retaliate in some fashion? Some practical joke gum that turns her teeth blue or something? heh..heh..heh… 😉

    I like where you’re going with this… -CS

    I am THAT GIRL. You know, the one who will even tell a complete stranger on the bus that their fly is open.

    Hey, would you rather me say something so you can fix it, or walk around like that all day? Hmmmmmm?

    Right. Thought so.

    Sister, I’m right there with you. I’ll do the same exact freaking thing. Now, that being said, if I have thai basil mint in my teeth on Saturday when I’m hitting on one of the staff at three… on Saturday-you best tell me. Or I will beat you! -CS

    Y’know, I just don’t get this either. How is it that my coworker buddies that I’ve been going to lunch with 5 days/week over the years CANNOT tell me that I have something in my teeth?! Honestly, are we not yet COMFORTABLE enough around one another after 5 lunches per week over the years to tell me I have a friggin’ piece of somethin’ in my teeth?!

    What’s so freaking hard about saying, “Hey, you’ve got something in your teeth?” Let’s all practice it out loud. See, not so freaking hard. -CS

    And when you’ve had four raspberry mojitos too many, I’ll hold your hair back and tell you to aim for Debbie Downer’s shoes.

    That’s a true friend right there. -CS

    That’s what you get for eating a salad.

    But it had goat cheese in it. I love goat cheese. Plus you of all people know that I don’t have to eat salad. -CS

    I usually figure it out right away when something like this happens…Tabbie jumps right in there and makes fun of me almost immediately.

    She’s a good friend like that. -CS

  10. I would most certainly point this out for you. It would, as GB noted, involve me making fun of you by pointing and laughing, but at least you’d know.

    I totally wouldn’t mind. You mocking me is not as bad as attempting to flirt with some hotty that is disgusted by the food in my teeth. -CS
