Okay, so you know how sometimes, once you see something a certain way, you just can’t unsee it? Right?
And you also know how sometimes, when you’re at an event that you’re not totally into, your mind can find its own ways to entertain itself?
Well, at a local college basketball game earlier this winter, I totally lost myself in the gaping face-hole of a male cheerleader. This guy, when he would go to lift the girl up or catch her as she came down, would open his mouth so wide you’d think he was secretly a Kirby with hopes to inhale that poor girl and absorb her cheerleading powers. And he did this every single time there was a lift. It absolutely KILLED me.
You could tell he was oblivious to this element of his cheerleading practice. (Or, if he was aware of it, he had absolutely no control over it.) But it was the greatest thing on earth. I even have a video of it because I just couldn’t let it go (but I’m not going to post it here because I feel like that’d be a tad bit cruel of me). Instead, you’ll just have to enjoy the illustration I drew based on the event above. (Oh how inspiration comes from the most random of places.)
That being said, it really makes me wonder what faces I pull when I’m concentrating that I don’t know about. Please, if you ever notice me gasping for air like a fish out of water or flailing about while I’m trying to do something, let me know. I may not actually stop doing it because sometimes you concentrate so hard you have no control over such things, but at least then I’d know why everyone was laughing at me. (And, if it were something like this, it’d definitely be a laughing WITH me type of thing. Making fun of myself is one of my favorite things to do.)
Okay, is this one of those “you had to be there” things to truly appreciate? Probably, but let me know what you think anyways! Have you ever caught yourself making an outrageous face while concentrating? (I know a lot of girls tend to do this with eye make-up all the time.) Or have you ever found something at an event that you couldn’t stop laughing at even though it wasn’t actually part of the show? Give me all the juice, I’m waiting!
