I Am Dinosaur. Hear Me Roar.

#2, Libbs, and I went to Wal-Mart at around midnight a couple of nights ago for an emergency brownie run.

Libbs went to go get some deodorant while #2 searched for the brownie ingredients she needed. While kind of wandering around looking for her after I had found what I needed, I finally spotted her in the middle of one of the aisles.

I stood at the end of her aisle and did this raptor imitation I do. The raptor is a development between something from Avatar and this dinosaur thing Cray-Cray does. I don't know why I do this, but I am ashamed to say I had been doing it all weekend in Lafayette at this conference we went to. There are pictures...

It comes complete with a screeching/growling sound and body motions.

So I'm standing there at the end of the aisle in the open doing this....thing. I figured no one would see because it was about 12:30 in the morning and no one was really there.

In the corner of my eye I saw someone stop. I looked over and it's these two young guys just staring at me with these faces of confusion and shock.

Can you blame them?

I was pretending to be a raptor...

I felt my face get really hot and so I looked down in embarrassment. I told them sorry in a quiet voice -- I had no idea why I was apologizing -- and proceeded down the aisle to #2 who was killing herself laughing at this point. I literally laid on the ground in the middle of the aisle and curled up into the fetal position mourning the loss of my dignity.

I made a silent vow to myself right then that I would never leave my apartment again.


  1. Please leave your apartment! We need you! <3

  2. I'm so glad to have inspired you in such a way. Raptors are NOT extinct, my friend.

  3. Hahaha. I love doing things like that just to get funny reactions from people. Please, continue with your raptorness.
