Well, I have decided that I am an idiot! I have made an idiot out of myself in front of pretty much every brilliant person I know....
First, at the Houston Warm-Up, I was talking to a brilliant debater whom I respect greatly. Well, it was late and I was pretty much sleep-deprived. There was a break in the conversation and I hate silence so I decided to tell him that I liked his three-point pocket handkerchief. Of course, me being the smart person I am, I couldn't remember the name. So I said, "I like your pocket thingy!". Brilliant I know (but wait it gets better). I then proceeded to say, "It looks like the Rocky Mountains!". Oh yes, incredibly smart sounding! hahaha well he looked at me weird and said "thank you". Oh wow......well, I also made an idiot out of myself again at the tournament last weekend.
I was talking to another incredibly brilliant debater who asked me how I was doing. I said "nice!" with a perfectly straight face and asked him how he was doing. It wasn't until AFTER we had finished our conversation that I realized I had just told a nationally ranked debater that I was nice today.....wow.
So yes, I don't know why exactly, but I insist on acting like a ditz in front of all the smart people in the world! :P Maybe, eventually I will learn how to talk coherently to an intelligent person! Maybe I can also convince these two guys that I'm really not as dumb as I act. haha well I hope this made you laugh.....it sure did make my friends laugh! Now GO and make your own hilarious mistakes!
