A week or two back, I was having a discussion with a friend in which I told her I don’t send friend requests to Antiguan girls because they are too “nuff”. She seemed somewhat offended by this since she was one herself and jumped to their defense. To prove that I probably wasn’t the only one who thought so, I asked the question “Where do the “nuffest” girls in the world come from?” in my status on Facebook. Almost immediately I got seven comments answering “Antigua”. What was surprising (and amusing) was that of the seven, five of them were indeed Antiguan females.
For those of you who don’t know what “nuff” means, it’s a word from my Antiguan dialect which I like to define it as: being stuck up and unapproachable with a splash of bitchiness. An example of it would be walking up to a chick you don’t know and giving a well mannered “Hi!” and it being returned with rolling eyes, teeth being sucked, her turning the other way with her face screwed up, a forced reply, her acting like you asked for a kidney and two ovaries/an attitude, or a mixture of some or all of the above.
Despite the 50+ comments on the status (all of which were in my favor), my friend still felt that I should change my mentality towards networking with my fellow “countrywomen” on Facebook (see P.O.W.A. chicks? I can be politically correct ). Since I didn’t want to hear her nag and b!t(h about it anymore, I promised her that I’ll change my approach on the matter; but on a trial basis.
We reached an agreement that over the span of the next two, three, “how many ever” months, I’ll creep my friends’ profiles and send a random friend request to between 10-15 Antiguan chicks. From there I’ll withhold my “sexist and perverted mannerisms” (can you believe she actually said that? :S) and at the end of it we’ll see how many of them end up being “dead” friends as opposed to people I actually talk to. I wanted to put a wager on it but she declined after the “pink undies profile picture” incident… *sighs*
It’s cool though, I’m all for proving someone wrong and saying “I told you so!” right after. Additionally, I can see a post being created out of the whole thing so consider this a “heads up”. I guess every week or so in the meanwhile I can do a little “this is how things are going so far…” post to keep you updated on it but I’ll give that some more thought.
For now though, let the creeping begin…
