She's A 1 not a 10
I went to my favorite sports bar today to watch my beloved, but 1-6 Packers blow another game. Thank god I was driving, or I'd have drank heavily.
The guy next to me commented on the waitress, who was cute beyond belief, with a butt that, well, it was perfect. He made one of those standard, sexist, rate the chick with a number type comments, to which I replied, "She's a one".
He didn't get it, but having been married for over twenty years, the 1-10 hot scale no longer works for me. Instead, if I'm going to act sophmoric in a sports bar (where better?), I use a scale of 1 through 3.
1- The woman is so unbelievably hot I'd take her home, toss her on the couch, and ask the wife to keep score.
2- She's pretty hot, but I'd be discreet and get a hotel room.
3- She wouldn't be worth the legal hassles if I got caught.
The waitress was definitely a two . She was too young to be a one, I'd have to put up with the "you have kids her age" crap.
What kind of scale are you using?
Funny, right after writing this, I find Maureen Dowd's latest editorial piece on the anti-feminist movement among women, check it out here.
