Rocko The Intern

July 2010 - January 2013
Monday, January 12, 2004
I've been stricken with a sever case of reality, but don't worry, judging by most of the people I see, it's not contagious.

Monday afternoon and I already have something to write about? Damn skippy! (and no, the headline has nothing to do with the rest of this post) After a 20 minute delay to clean the snow off of my car I was off on my normal Monday routine of going grocery shopping. At the grocery store I noticed a new checkout girl and, realizing her title to it's fullest, I made sure to "check her out." (Damn, that was corny Adam, why you gotta be so corny?) She was a cute Hispanic girl (exactly my type), and she had a very pretty, well, everything. Normally I wouldn't say anything, I'm pretty reserved around people I don't know unless it's work-related, but in 2004 apparently I'm Mr. Playa. After she asked for my signature I played it as smooth as possible. "You askin for my autograph? If you're asking for my autograph is it OK if I ask for your phone number?" She laughed, but said no. For some reason, though, I felt really good about myself afterwards, like I accomplished something. There was no feeling of rejection. No feeling of loss. No feeling like I had just done something stupid. I honestly felt good. Maybe all my advice to myself is finally paying off. I did the numbers, I think I'm attracted to about one in five women, and I've been telling myself "when I see one I'm actually attracted to I might as well say something. Don't develop any connection, just say something." I figured maybe one in ten girls I, or anyone else, asks out will actually say yes. So if I ask a girl and she says no, who cares, I had no connection, but the percentages suddenly shift into my favor, cuz each time a girl says no I'm one closer to a girl that says yes.

Did any of that make sense?

B-Lister Nation
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
