Me and the friends were out, and this guy with a ponytail starts talking to us. After some time, he points out one of his friends hanging out outside the place.
Ponytail: He was just on 'LA Ink' last night, and we've been giving him a hard time about it all night. So he's a little embarrassed if people mention it.
Ponytail: Well you'd make my day if you could run up to him and act like you saw him on the show. Like a total fan. It'd really embarrass him and I'd get a good laugh.
Me: On it (start walking towards the door to go meet the Ink man)
OH MY GOSH! WERE YOU ON LA INK?!?!
(So excited as if I was a teenage girl and I saw Justin Bieber.)
CAN I SEE YOUR TATTOO?
Hoodie Man: Uh....no. (Looking confused.)
Me: (WTF? I know it was you Hoodie man. You either have a tattoo or not! Your friend told me you were, Jerk.)
Pigtails Man (to the left of Hoodie man): Uh I was on LA ink.
Me: (red face........ great.)
(What an idiot you are Lauren.)
Ha ha. (awkward laugh at myself.)
Yup, complete strangers, and made a fool out of myself. You think I would I would learn after so many failures that I shouldn't set myself up like that. What an idiot! So yes, this does happen in real life.
Maybe I should write a book? What do you think?
