Friday evening while running some street game, a Rav 4 SUV pulled up at the corner of a bodega where I was standing and drinking a bottle of rum-cream liqueur.
A passenger exclaimed:
Now, remind you- no one outside of the internet calls me “Social Kenny”, so I was a taken-aback and didn’t know how exactly to take this.
For all I know, this was some SJW [Social-Justice Warrior] feminist, itching to pick a fight with me over my borderline misogynistic articles. 🙂 😦
Lady in SUV: “Are you Socialkenny”?
A bit confused:
Me: “Who wants to know”?
Lady in SUV: “******a”!
The SUV pulled up closer to the curb and to the building I was standing next to.
Lady in SUV: “Hold on! Lemme pull up”!
The female who was driving the SUV encouraged her to get out in order to meet me.
Lady in SUV: “I watch your videos on Youtube and read you website”.
Me: “Oh for real”!?
I said that with a bit of skepticism and leeriness as I was still trying to gauge what was going on here.
She hopped out of the SUV and approached me.
Though she had a cheerful countenance, since this was sorta different for me, I wasn’t sure what to expect as she approached: a scolding, beat down or a hug.
To my surprise: it was an attempted hug…which led to a full-blown hug.
The female driver of the SUV said to us that she will pull over to the side and park.
I was like, “WTF”!
Too bad for me that they weren’t my idea type.
In plain language: they were fatties…both of them.
Now I knew firsthand how celebs felt being mobbed by unsuspecting groupies and fans: it isn’t an overly welcoming feeling.
Anyway, so the driver parked up, got out and joined her friend and me on the corner.
She went into a long explanation as to why and how she found my videos and how she felt about pickup and dating coaches.
Me: “So…how did you know it was me…Socialkenny”?
Girl: “From the face”!
Me: “So you just spot a random guy and random face and instantly knew it was me”?
After about 30 minutes of discourse, she asked if we could take a pic.
She and her friend [I supposed] debated over whose cellphone they were to use to take the picture.
Driver Girl: “Your flash isn’t that good”!
Fan Girl: “Yes it is! Take it with my phone and see”!
They took about 5 test photos on their respective Android smartphones.
Driver Girl: “Naaaaaah!!! This one is too dark”!
Fan Girl: “Why I look so fat”!?
Few more pics and they were done.
Feeling star-studded, and since this was so much of a new experience for me [to be approached by a subscriber of mines], I had her bluetooth me the photo.
What q weird night to say the least.
