How to get the 'skunk-eye' from a Coonass man in no time flat.
While at a high school basketball game . .
(note: the Stingerettes are the dance team at the girls' school. They are named 'Stinger'ettes because the school mascot is the Hornet and they wear little fancy, glittery dance outfits.)
John M.'s intently watching the basketball players go up and down the court. He's leaned over the bleachers and studying them.
Me: Mark, look at John.
Mark: Yep, he's thinking 'that's gonna be me one day'.
Later, at halftime as the soundtrack to Grease was being played and Emma and company were dancing. John M. is dancing like there's no tomorrow, wiggling his butt and waving his arms in the air, while closely watching the girls dance.
Me: Um, Mark, I think we have a Stingerette on our hands, rather than a basketball player.
All I get from Mark is the skunk eye.
Geez . .
