I believe there was a similar thread, but I couldn't find it...anyway, a pretty trippy thing happened to me last monday... I went to meet a friend of mine for a drink after my fencing lesson and naturally took my bag with me to meet her. We ended up at this sort of posh bar in Soho (new york) that was a little crowded, and so I started pissing the hell out of everyone with my rather large soudet fencing bag, full of swords and sweaty kevlar. eventually, this man walks over to me and asks what's in the fencing bag. I told him, and he giggled and led me over to a table with a bunch of other people. Then I was introduced to a lady that must have been in her seventies, and looked in all forms and ways like a sweet grandmother. The people asked her to guess what was in my fencing bag; the short dialogue that follows summarizes the conversation that follows and is as accurate as my memory allows: Man1: so guess what's in that bag ma?...(whispering to me) lead her on, keep her guessing, it will be fun... Grandmother: hmm...well...it looks like...dildos. Me: Dildos!? This bag is enormous! Would never carry a dildo in a bag this size! Grandmother: Well, they could be those big black ones you know... Me: No, no...were to have one of those, I certainly wouldn't bring it here... Grandmother: Then I don't know what it is! Me: Guess again...you weren't so far off the first time. I carry phallic symbols in here after all... The grandmother kept looking pretty confused, and after a few more words I sorta got pulled away from this group, and back into the safety of my own friends. Has anyone had anything similar happen to them?
