We pay for stupid comments more than others.
Take this dialogue last week for instance:
Hairstylist: First time nyo dito sir?
Me: Ah no. I tried the your other branch in Makati. (It was a pretty swanky salon. Damn, Im turning metrosexual) Actually I liked my hair the last time, which is why im trying this branch.
HS: Ah! Ok sir! *starts snipping away* Who did your hair the last time?
Me: Im sorry, I really forgot.
HS: Ah, was it Edmund? Vincent? *rattles off a number of names*
Me: Im sorry, I really cant recall.
HS: Was he gay? Maybe its Vince... he's the only gay there. *snips again*
Me: Yeah. I think he was gay... *pause* Wait... are you telling me there ARE straight male hairstylists?
HS: *volatile silence* I... *snip* am.. *snip, snip* not... *snip* GAY. *snip, snip, SNIP!*
Needless to say, I now sport the absolutely worst haircut I've had in years. It feels like Wolverine minus the ruggedly animalistic appeal.
Thats it -- Im definitely adding Straight Male Hairstylists in my "People not to throw potshots at while utterly defenseless" list.
About Charles and Camilla? I think its great they're marrying. I mean, to actually go out in public with someone as un-Diana-like as Camilla and defend her in front of the whole British populace... it's gotta be love right?
Or as Jay Leno pointed out... maybe its only now that his eyesight got bad enough to want to marry her ;)
