Ex Story # 5

The nicest thing he ever said to me:

"The first time I saw you naked I almost pissed myself laughing."

Apparently, that's a compliment.

  • please tell the justification that that was a compliment. try as i might, i just can't imagine how that might go...

  • This is a very British male reaction.

  • WHAT?!?! I am trying to wrap my mind around this one.

  • Hey, maybe it was like this - Spinsterella is so selfconscious about her body the she wears only really baggy clothes which show nothing of her figure - so when she finally took them off the Ex was so relieved/surprised that she was actually human underneath that he just had to laugh? It's a long shot.

  • I would love to ask dave f to elaborate on that comment. Not having been naked in front of any British males, I have no data but I'm curious about the thinking behind it.
    It seems cruel and a reaction unlikely to generate an amorous response. Kind of self defeating.

  • Do you have a tattoo of Eric Morecambe?

  • It's not computing. Explain further. Why did you not stab him instantly?

  • What he actually meant was "You have a great body".

    Yes, really.

    Now, when I was 21, I did have a pretty damn fine figure - slim, but stacked. (I'm still fairly thin but the boobs have gone down to something approaching normal size.) I met Ex when I worked in a pub I wasn't exactly wearing super-tight clothes all the time - so I guess it's kinda along the lines of Joanna's thinking.

    I know all about British male understatement, but still, couldn't he have just actually said - "nice body"?

  • men. tch.

    surely "you truly are a goddess i shall shower you with gifts. don't try to stop me" would have been more appropriate?

  • Christ. How wonderfully erudite of him. Grr.

  • He was laughing because he was hysterical over the impossiblity that a woman with a body as cosmic as your would consent to date a man with such a tiny dick.

  • k -- I don't think it would be wise for me to explain.

  • I'm finding it very hard to believe that you would get naked in front of anyone who could offer that comment as "the nicest thing" he ever said to you.

  • dave. this is the internet. wisdom does not factor in. if you have some insight into this comment, by all means share it!

    By Blogger Chaucer's Bitch, at 4:23 PM  

  • after reading spinsterella's explanation, if I was a little more cynical I'd suggest that the comment was a calculated attempt to make our heroine a teensy bit self-conscious while not immediately getting the boot.

    As George Costanza might put it, an attempt at gaining 'hand'.
