FML - The follow-up

Today, I learned the hard way that when I ask a cute girl if she's artistic, it sounds like I'm asking her if she's autistic. FML

Hey everyone! I'm the OP! Didn't think my post would be this popular! I don't have an accent- I'm from SoCal, but I was in a crowded class so it was hard to hear, so she just repeated what she thought I said. I've been talking to her for a while, but I asked her if she was artistic because we were really bored in a 3 hour class, so drawing would've been a fun distraction (although I can't draw to save my life). When I told the story to a couple friends, they thought I said 'autistic' instead or

I miss when FML used to post the city and state of the OP. I mean, it would be interesting if he was from Boston - Like the others said, it could just be his accent, as opposed to not speaking clearly.

It's alright. I don't think "are you artistic?" Comes up often in conversation in daily life. "Are you artistic?" "Why do you ask? Was it this sketch of an animated mount Vesuvius rampaging through a field of miniature hulks, drawn only with bodily fluids?" Although I guess one could just be asking their science project group "who's artistic" for the purpose of assigning poster making duty as well. Hmm.
