Once Again, Justin Is (Indirectly) The Subject of Public Debate (Or Finding a Good Lead In Is So Difficult.)

A story, and a true one at that.

Earlier this semester I went to the fourth floor where I entered the shared office for adjunct instructors.

There was already another gentleman in the office. He gave me an unwelcoming look. Still I set up shop, taking out my laptop and plugging in. Even moved some stuff around.

Accustomed to being looked down on for my youth, I simply glared back.

His stare started to weigh me down, so I stuck in my headphones and encouraged myself with obnoxiously loud music until I had to go class

After class I found out that the adjunct's office had been moved to the second floor.

I had been sitting in some guy's office. Glaring at him.

Which kind of makes me wonder: Are Smart Men Sexy?

Witty, self-effacing, smart men are indeed... sexy.

given the fact that i want to secretly get it on with about 8 of my genius, yet not conventionally attractive, professors at school, i would say that smart men are super sexy.

and i don't hate you, fool!

Smart men are sexy. And so are lost, helpless (kitten-like) men who don't know when they're in the wrong office.
Did you not notice that the person with whom you share the office, was, well, different? Or that things in the office, were also (presumably) different?

Are smart men sexy? How else would you explain my undying love and devotion for celebrity mathametician Grigori Perelman?

Finding Fair Hope said...

I think the question is "Are dumb men sexy?"

My answer later.

Justin said...


I'm so stupid for not seeing that!

goldennib said...

Which man in your story is the smart one?

goldennib said...

Were both of the men blonde?

goldennib said...

I find noncommunicative men sexy.

bitingblondewit said...

Watch the blonde-bashing, Goldie!

You find non-communicative men sexy? That's all men! Shame on you...

Justin said...


You are taking 8 clases?


Justin said...

I think I'm going to print off your comment, cross off the first line, and use it as a kind of advertisement for myself.

P.S....I am a man lost in thoughts.

Comrade Kevin said...

You read the evidence Justin! It was right there, laid out by professionals from the Discovery Channel!

Personally I think there are just a lot of kinky women on the internet. The real question is, why do they all read your blog?

Justin said...

I thought it was the facial hair.


Justin said...

I don't get it.

Justin said...

I'm going to let bitingblondewit, field these.


Justin said...

Comrade K,
Re: Your judgement of Internet Women--That is a bold sociological thesis. And I don't know if I can support it until definitive studies are done. No doubt you have something in the works. j.

sexy. i wont say sexy.. but smart men are attractive. there are too many hunks with little brain and only offer shallow conversations. but i'd rather someone not entirely good looking, with more to life than a face.

alecia said...

no, i have either taken the professors i am talking about at one point or another for a class, or they are ones i've seen around.

bitingblondewit said...

Comrade. Kinky? I'm sure I don't know what you mean. And just in case I do, no need to explain it.

Justin. You are an adorable and smart kitten of a man. A veritable tiger, I'm sure. But if you have questions, perhaps Kevin could help you?

Are you still "blogging"? I have not seen you for a while, so I just figured that you had ceased to exist. I also anticipated that your lack of existence meant that I could keep your Lobster book.

Kindest regards,
