R&R: Relationship and Recipes- Avoiding the Cheese!

Don’t you hate to go to a club or bar and have the most unattractive man hitting on you? Okay, well, usually the man isn’t physically unattractive, but his lines are. So many times women get caught at a bar with a guy named Rich who’s breath smells like Vodka and he wrecks of some cheap smelling after-shave.

The thing that will make a woman the most uncomfortable is the fact that the guy’s lines are so damn corny. It’s like, if you want me to be interested then please act natural. The one exception I can see being made in this situation is when a man is mocking other men who do the cheesy line stuff. Then its okay to laugh and pay a little more attention. But then they are left in more of a worse position than the cheesy guy. Because while the cheesy guy is being honestly cheesy, the mocking guy could be just as cheesy and made fun of someone who he is 65% like anyway.

To avoid going through this type of torture always make sure that you spark up a small 1 minute conversation with the bartender and the guy next to you. Even if the guy is not your type, make sure that you let him know you just want to talk. This is a small way at keeping the timid cheesy guys at bay.

Next, if a guy sits next to you and you can read the signs of a cheese, still give them the benefit of the doubt. But once he turns to you and says the line... something like, “I like you. You’re just like me. When I R.S.V.P. to a party, I make it my job to cum,” and smiles, then you know it’s time to cross one leg over the other, making sure your buttocks is facing him but not giving him too much to make him think you want him to cop a feel.

If this technique does not work and he continues to spit the awful lines at you, just politely touch the guy’s shoulder who you were initially talking to. Once you do this, the guy will be away from you in 2.5 seconds.

And we all know that if this doesn’t work it’s best to grab your purse and get the hell out of dodge. I normally wouldn’t suggest that anyone stop having a good time because of a nuisance. But the questions is: would you keep running in a park if you heard gunshots? No, you’d get the hell out of the way and say, “I’ll jog another time.” Same thought process here.

Below I have listed a recipe for- you guessed it- Cheese Ham Strata. Until the next time I post, watch out for the “cheese.”

Cheese Ham Strata

8 slices white bread
2 c. cheddar cheese, grated
3 c. buttermilk
4 eggs, beaten2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
3/4 tsp dry mustard
½ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
½ c. sliced ham, chopped

Alternate buttered layers of bread, cheese, and ham in a greased baking dish, ending with cheese on top. Mix remaining ingredients and pour over layers. Allow to stand one hour in refrigerator. Bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 50 to 60 minutes or until golden brown on top. Cut into squares and serve.
