Pop n Fresh

Saw a kid/guy/20-something at the grocery store tonight who looked like he MIGHT have been the Pillsbury dough boy, all grown up.

Starting at the top, there was this to notice:

  • a too-small straw hat
  • a wreath of hair curling out from the edges of the too-small hat
  • a pair of emo-hipster tortoiseshell glasses in a shade of ironic black
  • plugs in the earlobes, I'm guessing 14 gauge
  • a ratty Van Dyke beady thing, with crumbs on.
  • a double chin under an already weak one
  • a short sleeved plaid cotton shirt in a mix of muddy browns that no doubt spoke to his lifelong parent-hate
  • a pair of jean shorts. rolled up. to his crotch. unevenly.
  • a set of blazing white doughy thighs that would make a 15-year-old girl cry at the injustice of them if they were hers, causing her to adopt an 'all-maxi-dress, all-the-time' attitude and a love for lights-off sex, not to mention never EVER getting into a bathing suit in front of anyone, not even her granny, because Granny has better thighs than her, dammit.
  • shinny chicken calfs
  • ratty hi-tops, in a bland tan that no doubt is a mirror of his take on the current state of society.

The thighs though. Those freaking THIGHS will haunt my memory. The soft yeasty overproofed thighs of a young MAN (if the snotty demi-beard is to be believed), the thighs that should be hard and sound and muscular in the places where this....boy....was as yielding as a down pillow, yet not as alluring a place to rest.

Ew. Ew ew ew ew ew ew.

And yet? He was with a GIRL. Who was being all solicitous and shit about what kind of kraftbrew or bubbly wine he wanted. Either she was his sister, or he's got a huge dick.

There can be no other explanation.
