So yesterday I went to lunch with the guys. As we crossed the street there was a couple in front of us walking slower than usual. We got closer and noticed that the couple consisted of a large guy and a small woman. The woman wasn't a dwarf but just small enough for you to notice (I'm not tall so even I noticed). Working in animation you see that contrast and your mind immediately pushes the visual further. So we walked around them and went to lunch as the couple went the opposite direction. We ate lunch and decided to go to Starbucks for some coffee. WalderMonk and I were in line and we start commenting on how small that woman was. Now side note here:When you go to lunch with a group of storyartists, they tend tell stupid jokes, go off in tangents and do silly voices. We just can't stop working I guess. Anyway, I start joking around about how small the woman was and WalderMonk starts making motions like he is leapfrogging over her and we giggle like little kids. So it's our turn to order and BAM! The woman asking for the order is the small woman. We suddenly decide that we're not thirsty and stand off to the side embarrassed as hell. So embarrassed that we have to leave Starbucks so we don't die of embarrassment. Now I have to say that I'm not a mean spirited person and WalderMonk is one of the nicest guys I've ever met and wouldn't hurt a fly so we aren't normally mean people. We just got caught being stupid kids. Needless to say we learned our lesson...
Don't make fun of somebody until AFTER you get to work!!!
