Escape and Evade- Close Call

#1
So... there I am, at the Museum, doing some research for an upcoming trip to Egypt, when a bodacious babe enters the gallery where I'm sitting. she's got a sketch pad and a small case with her, so I figure her for an art student' on assignment ' or something. What caught my attention was the way her low cut top fit her like cling wrap.

She stopped in front of an exhibit and began drawing. I figured I might see if I could take a peek at her accessories - er sketches - and casually strolled over. I realized I had 'violated' her personal space, despite my casual approach, when I saw she was eyeing the possible exits or looking for a patrolling 'rent-a-cop '.

I figured I better the defuse the situation with some witty comment or placatory aside.

Cue mouth before brain, as I channeled Jeff Daniels at his best " Dumb and Dumber " moment.
ME: [ dumb ] " Nice Jugs "
HER: " What?"
ME: [ dumber] " Nice Jugs "
HER:[ rising indigant ] " I Beg Your Pardon!?"
ME:[ brain finally firing on all cylinders - pointing to display ]
Amphorae, actually, Funerary tribute..Ptolemaic - 9th or 10th dynasty, If I'm not miskaten.
HER: [ caught off guard ] Oh...
ME: blabbing on about Alexander the Great, General Ptolemy, establishment of Dynasty..succession, Cleopatra..accuracy and skill of her drawings... etc. etc..



Close Call averted. She actually gets interested, invites me for a coffee and a chance to see her ' etchings' ..

Result..

Anyone else narrowly escape potential embarrassment, wrath or jail from ' Foot in Mouth ' moment?

One word. Bollox. Who in their right fcuking mind would go to a museum, see some bird with"nice jugs" and then pretend to say it about a couple of pieces of pottery. A true male would have said "Nice t1ts" and then said the jugs were sh1te. :wink:

HER: 'I beg your pardon' 8O

HIM: 'Sorry, have you just come from the south'? :p
