I don't want to be serenaded

If you are like me then you probably have no clue how to react to a compliment. Do you just say thank you? And then stare at each other? Do you compliment them back? But what if they have nothing you want to compliment? Should you say something sarcastic back? What if they don't get your sense of humor? Should you just stand there awkwardly? But maybe they will want to take back their compliment.

Everyone says they want to be serenaded but let's be honest isn’t that just a ginormous one sided compliment? And hasn't everyone kind of been serenaded by the acapella that is their friends slash family and or classmates or waiters at Red Robin? So maybe they aren't as on tune as these guys.

Most of the time this involves smiling and pretending that you’re not posing for your mom’s pictures and that you're actually ecstatic to be listening to this awesome rendition of happy birthday.

Being serenading becomes huge baggage. No one wants to be known as an ungrateful bitch, and everyone expects you two to be in love or something but what if you don't even like the guy and he happened to stop you on your way to lunch and you're honestly just really hungry and grumpy and then everyone expects you two to be in love even though you don't know the guy or how he even knew where you were going to be at that specific time.

But no, no one cares, because everyone else is so insanely jealous of you even though you would gladly switch places with them right now.

So yes, imagining INSERT FAVORITE SINGER HERE, serenading you seems wonderful, but think about it. If it really came down to it, what would you do with your hands?
