Strange things this morning

So David and I walked down to the car this morning to head in to the office, and David noticed a folded scrap of paper tucked in the window.

Now, my first thought when there’s a note stuck to my car is always “Oh, no, someone ran into my car in the parking lot.” I don’t know why that’s my first thought, since to date I’ve found a grand total of three notes on my car in my entire life and not one of them was about an accident, but there it is.

Anyway, this note was not, in fact, about someone ramming me in the parking lot. Or maybe it was; it’s hard to tell:

Though honestly, I think it’s more likely that it was aimed at David than at me.

I can’t give you any rational reason for it, but I have a feeling that this note was more likely written by a man than a woman. I could be wrong, but it feels that way…

This, apparently, has been an ongoing issue with David, as well–he tends to get hit on by a lot of guys. I might be being unreasonably modest in assuming that the note’s intended for him but not me, though in all honesty I have to say he’s most likely the “hot” one:

  1. Eeehehehee, yes, Coke/Cock looks like a Freudian slip ON PAPER.

    It’s possible the note’s written by a guy, but I could see writing a note worded this way as well.

    Hm. Interesting. Is Dave hot? He’s got a pretty cool look going on, that’s for sure *appraising look* but Tacit’s no slouch, either.

  3. David is pretty darned hot. (And yes, it does look like the note says “cock”.) There are a few reasons why you might think the note was written by a guy, and although none of them give an absolute determination, they do infer “masculinity”, especially used in concert with each other — use of the address “dude”, aggressiveness of language “fucking hot”, possible use of word “meet” as a euphemism for fuck/hook up, writer’s wants stated up front in an aggressive no holds barred manner, etc. Also, since the writer has clearly seen David, there is also a high probability that the two of you have been seen together frequently enough that someone might think you are more intimate than most straight male roommates (and indeed you are but just not in *that* way, so to speak.)

    And tell David “hi” for me.

  5. personally, I use the word “dude” a lot, especially for a girl, but that handwriting is totally a dude’s and not a chick’s. HAH! I used “dude”.

    was the note on the side of the car that he normally uses?

  7. I would concur it defiantly sounds more of a masculine note then a feminine unless she is just REALLY aggressive (perhaps knows of you from your post and such?). She could just be a Dom (though I think the wording would be different).

    My two cents… I think your both pretty hot so could be for either of you 

    And yes Dayo you look like one lucky lady πŸ˜€

  9. David is fucking hot. πŸ™‚

    That TOTALLY says ‘cock.’

    Somehow, I don’t see either of you waiting around tonight to look for the hookup, but if you do – pics or it didn’t happen! πŸ˜›

    Also, you are damn hot too! πŸ™‚

    Though when you are shopping for food for your cat together.. you totally do give off the vibe of the older gay guy and his boi. πŸ˜› ..not sure if you two are the ‘gayest’ straight couple I know, but you are in the top 5. *gigglesnicker*

  11. When and started going to this sushi bar together, told me that he thought the owner thought he was the “older gay man” with his new “boy boy” and got royally confused when finally brought one of his girlfriends in (who hadn’t before then because we all live out of the state).

  12. Well, I’d have to go with it being a guy just because of the proposed method of meeting up. “Hang around the area tonight” definitely sounds like male-male hookup behavior. Not that I have any experience there, of course, but basing it just on what I’ve been told by a variety of sources (like Dan Savage.) πŸ˜‰ No way of knowing which of you it’s intended for.

    I’d think that a female, even using otherwise the same wording, would leave a phone number and say, “Ask for …”

    Also, I can totally believe that D gets approached by guys on occasion. There’s just this look, and he’s got it. Not that he “looks gay”, but that he has an appearance that fits a common type that is attractive to gay men. (Particularly gay men who look 10+ years older than him.) He’s not the only one I know with this look and this tendency.

    I don’t quite see that look in you, though. You look a little too devious to be “boyish” to me. πŸ˜‰

  14. If I was the betting sort, I’d put money on the writing being from a male. I’ve yet to meet a female who actually writes quite like that. (too fast, too sharp and there are capital letters in manly patterns)

  16. I use dude a lot, and I’m a girl. But that is very manly handwriting. I’ve only met a few girls who write like that. Also, the “coke/cock” thing looks like the writer originally wrote “cock”, realized it, and then tried to make it look like “coke”.

    And yes, David is fucking hot. You’ve got more of the “incredibly handsome mad scientist” look going on.

  18. That looks uncomfortably similar to my boyfriend’s hand writing, though it can’t possibly be him. Unless he’s been selling hand-written notes for strangers to use in hitting on other strangers. Definitely male, though.

    …and were I the type to leave anonymous notes on the cars of attractive men, I would specify which one I was interested in! Sheesh.

  20. Holy Shit! “Hot” really doesn’t begin to describe!!! No wonder you two get along so well.
    Yes, the note was definitely written by a guy!!!
    I love it when people just put themselves out there!! Bravery is such a turn on.
    “Balls OUT!!!” as my Lover says.

  22. I definitely have the attractive-to-gays gene myself, although I did discover a curious twist: I heard “my girlfriend thought you were interesting” more than once after the movie, so apparently I’m now also attractive to those already spoken for. Now if I could just figure out how to get an unattached female interested in me, I’d be set. Theoretically, I’d only need the one…

    You know, I never really thought about this before, but it occurs to me that my solitary ex-girlfriend is bi. Maybe the attractive-to-gays gene affects both genders. Hmmm… – ZM

  24. Re: !

    you know.. Franklin talks here all the time about expressing needs and wants.. and I keep saying how much the idea of the two of them… but somehow we just haven’t seen eye to eye *grin*.

    *ducks*

  25. It was! That’s why I didn’t see it at first–it was stuck to the passenger side door. (David can’t drive a manual transmission, so he always rides on that side.)

  26. Heh. I can’t speak for David, but I’ve been working ’til midnight for most of the last two weeks (I’m typing this from work right now) and have precious little time for *anything*. Including hanging around in the parking lot.
