Little did I expect to hear my name being associated with a joke with sexual connotations! Trust me, I have a very good sense of humour and I do crack self-deprecating jokes. But when I heard that speech, I just simply did not find it funny at all. The first thought that came to my mind was "What on earth was going through this guy's head when he asked to use my name in a sexual joke?" I just stared at him with disbelief. It felt like I had been molested.
The feeling of uncomfort and embarrassment just made my stomach queasy. To make things worse, the speaker was a male retiree and a recent aquaintance whom I had only met less than 5 times in the last few months. This incident left me with such a bad aftertaste that I had to expel it all out through blogging at 3am.
That was just an unbelievably distasteful joke.
