FB Status Update: Miss-Calls

Missed calls can happen when you’re busy.

Perhaps there is a reason why you didn’t hear the phone ring. Perhaps it was never meant to be. Perhaps your day will be much better if you missed that call.

Other times you purposely missed the call.

You look at your phone, see who’s calling and think “Oh My God! Not Him! Probably wants to borrow another grand. Not Her! How many times do I have to tell her that I’m not her baby’s daddy.”

Well today I got a miss call.

Whoopeedoo right?

I procrastinated a couple of hours. Took a nap. Ate something. Literally had nothing else to do, so I returned the call.

I said, “Sorry I missed your call. Did you need something?”
She said, “Oh sorry Thao!”
I said, “Why you sorry for?”
She said, “I miss dialed.”

(Nothing more humiliating than to find out that a miss call was actually a miss dial)

She said, “I thought you were the girl Thao.”

(I take that back. There is something more humiliating. How do you mistaken me for a girl? I realize people say I’m feminine, but this is outrageous. I am so mad I don’t even know what to say.)

She said, “Well it’s late. Goodbye Thao!”
I said, “Bye”

You know I’m actually pretty comfortable with the fact that I can be feminine at times, but moments like this throw me off balanced sometimes.

For instance, take the pic I took when I was small.

Did my mom force me to wear a dress when I was small? Was it because she wanted a girl instead of a boy?

Or did I steal this dress from my sister when no one was looking, thinking to myself that I probably looked better in it than her?

It could be that I just finished watching braveheart, where it’s actually cool for men to wear skirts! So in my attempt to be extremely manly, I end up looking girly.

Sometimes the hardest thing to decipher is what’s inside of you.

FB Status Update: Thao Vs Metrosexual Dude

Driving on the road with my cousin TA and asked her the following question:

“You know the guy John really well right? He’s pretty feminine. And you said that I’m pretty feminine. Would you say that his feminine side out-scales my feminine side? Or are we both feminine in different ways?

TA: Well, I wouldn’t say he’s feminine.
Me: OMG, he knows about all the celebrity gossip, like who is pregnant, in a divorce, or about to die.
TA: Still, I would put him in a different category. He’s more metro sexual than feminine.
Me: What?
TA: He cares about how he looks, you don’t.
Me: Of course I care about my looks.
TA: He’s willing to drive 50 miles to a barber who knows what he’s doing. You walk to your kitchen and get a haircut from your mom.
Me: My mom does a decent job.
TA: He spends money on getting braces and teeth whitening. Your teeth are yellow and your breath stinks.
Me: I just had korean bbq!
TA: He brings face wash whenever he travels. Do you bring face wash on your travels? Wait, I should ask you this first … Do you even have face wash?
Me: What’s wrong with using water to wash my face?
TA: I rest my case.
Me: -.-

My search for a guy who’s more feminine than me continues …
