Since really clarifying my brand and really honing in on couples who are a perfect fit for me I’ve seen some raised eyebrows at one word in particular – Mischievous. For those who connect with it – party on. For those who don’t – there is an immediate questioning look and you can see the brain start to spin over what mischievous means and/or represents.
Let’s start with some background/a story – if you’re a friend of mine and you’ve ever been in a cab with me, you may have noticed that I tend to sit near the driver – I’m a huge believer that cabbies have some of the world’s most outrageous stories – I tend to strike up “conversations” with them – begging for their best stories. On a recent trip to Santa Barbara, my friends and I hopped a cab ride home from downtown and I started talking to the driver – less than half way home my buddies could see that I was up to no good and the cabby wasn’t jiving – so at the next stop-light Nate yells “Chinese fire drill!!!!” – we all immediately jump out the nearest door, run around the cab and hop into a different seat. Next thing you know, the cabby is yelling at us, light turns green, he pulls over to the curb, promptly kicks us out of his cab and leaves without collecting any of his fare. We had a good laugh and found another cab.
I can’t help but mess with people and push some limits. Be it posing for a photo with summo gold medal winner Byamba
Sometimes mischief is as simple as hoping a fence for the perfect photo, crossing lines, pushing limits – if no one is getting hurt, it’s safe. Your mischief makes for some of the most story telling photos of who you are as a human being – and more often than not, it results in the best expressions.
