“Great White Buffalo Status” – the term refers to someone who is “the one that got away,” they are full of grace and hard to find.
Tonight I caught up with a good friend of mine who I haven’t seen in around six months (due to stupid, petty argument). As we were catching up, I was telling him about my month-long journey in the great big U S of A. I babbled on about the times I will never forget, some I wish I could forget. Anyways, I mentioned that when I was in Nashville, I and a tour-buddy went and got inked. This was my first ever time getting a tattoo, and for some reason, I got two of them, because hey, why the hell not. To add to my wild, rebellious, “what happens on tour, stays on tour” mantra – I also got my nipple piercing. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, there is a silver, metal bar right though my right tit (edit: yes, it did hurt and yes, it does look kinda cool).
After a brief moment for my friend to get over the fact that I did such a thing, he told me that I lost my status of “Great White Buffalo.” Once he described what exactly that was, I was flattered but then a tidal wave of emotions hit. Flattered on one hand because who doesn’t want to be considered the “perfect girl next door” or the “one that got away” or even just a “hard to find gem.” Then on the other hand, annoyed. I lose this “prestigious” title because of three minor additions to my body PLUS how rude it is to have a friend say that you’ve “changed” but not in a good way – you see, in his eyes, I’m not longer this rarity.
DO GUYS THINK THAT I MADE THESE ADDITIONS TO MYSELF TO PLEASE THEM? OH HUNNY, NO.
Despite being this ridiculously independent woman who takes no shit from no man – It kinda sucked hearing it. I attempted to rant/be consoled by one of my other dude friends who’s apparently “in love” with me, and even he was lost for words, because, even in his eyes I lost the status.
Why the heck does, this status even exists. CAN THIS LIKE END?
In summary, I need to find new guy friends or a dude who sees me as still having that title despite my SMALL tattoos and bar in my right nipple.
