Excuse me,

Excuse me,

Post  Jerry on Wed Aug 31, 2011 10:21 am

With some foot issue, this morning, I decided to run on the soccer fields 1.5 miles from my house. I went there, the fields were wet and sprinklers on some fields were still on.

Hmmm, would be nice to have the water on my topless body, but I am no fan of getting the shoes soaked. I turned around to the track in a nearby high school.

6 miles in, I "warmed" up and started picking up to counter the boredom. The football team was practicing. Some parents were watching.

7:20am, as football team was wrapping up the session and parents leaving for work/home. A gentleman, apparently not the football team coaching staff with his dress shirt and badge, stopped me on the track.

"Excuse me, ........"

What did he say to Jerry next?

That's rude.

The polite way to ask is: where do you originally come from?

One time, one followed up with a complement: your English is so good, without any accent.

I was like: you fake. No accent? Why did you ask where I originally came from then? lol!

"Excuse me, ........would you mind not showing up here tomorrow? You're embarrassing the football team, they are not working nearly as hard as you. What they do for punishment is, well, what you're doing for fun".

Hmmm, not much love to Jerry again. Anyway, the correct answer is:

"Do you have a shirt you can put on. We have young girls coming. "

I don't know if he meant the cheer leading team was coming to the filed to practice or simply people were coming to school.

I was more of expecting: you look like a good runner. Have you run Boston before? lol!

I thought the shirt thing...where do you originally come from? I always heard "of what origin are you?" or my one friend "you have some words you say, I can't really figure out what part of the country says them like that..." turns out my dad corrupted me as a child by making fun of others and I thought that was how we were supposed to talk. That and northern South Dakota has its own charm.

I sometimes responded: from Arizona, as that was the first place we lived in the US, and looked at the questioner with a straight face. tongue

I think that "coach" was just jealous that you were kicking up more dirt than his entire team was. Does he own the track? Or is he some sort of sports police? Because I don't see why you'd have to put on a shirt if young girls were coming. I guess it would be such a devastation to the minds of young girls to see a shirtless man running on a track. However it would be perfectly acceptable to see shirtless teenagers dubbing as warewolves in movie theater. You should've just spat in his face and run away.

So logically, the next portion of the game would be: what did Jerry say or do to that request?

Well, I took my shirt off at the track last night, but it was pitch black, so no one had to look at me!

You're hot stuff, Jerry - driving those young Texas girls crazy...

What's the deal, when you go to a pool in TX, do all the guys wear shirts?

Shoot, I thought he was going to ask you to be a receiver for him. You still have high school eligibility, right Jerry?





Besides, most of the girls I see at the high school in this new century are wearing much less and are more distracting than your bare chest would ever be. Cool

Out of curiosity, I checked. The schools here actually have dress code - Inappropriate attire FNCA. Not sure what that means, but I don't think it wise, unless I really know what I am doing, to challenge any staff of the school my daughter will be going in a couple of years.

More importantly, what if they ban me from using the track. lol!

Google says that Jerry should look here, about FNCA, though I don't know why it applies to Jerry:

http://www.tasb.org/policy/pol/private/071909/pol.cfm?DisplayPage=FNCA(LOCAL).pdf&QueryText=FNCA



Hopefully, this does not mean that in order to use the track, Jerry needs to be wearing a white polo shirt and khaki slacks!
