Oh man, when you reveal your true nature to an unsuspecting public, there are all manner of people who stand ready to tell you, “don’t do it!”
For instance, when telling people that I am a Unicorn, they instantly start laughing and mentioning a certain Urban Dictionary entry.
I will say this much: in my 20’s, I might have been referred to as a “hot bi babe”, though never to my face (stop laughing). And casual sexual relations were never a strong suit for me, as I was always at least as interested in the person as the activity. However, I digress.
I get the feeling the term was coined in UD because finding a person like that was damn near impossible, and that if you did manage to find someone like that, it was like touching the monolith in 2001: A Space Odyssey. You know it’s special and you should enjoy it, because it’s rare that it happens at all.
What makes this UD kerfuffle (as it is) interesting is that even though this entry is topmost for the search term, it’s not the only entry for “unicorn”. In fact, just a few spots down, there’s this:
That’s more like it. And while the first definition has more upvotes, this one is also trending positive in the up/down category. I’ll take it as a sign I’m doing just fine.
So, you’ll forgive me if I disregard one definition in favor of another. That said, if you’re looking for a “hot bi babe”, I’ll talk it over with my spouse and let you know if we can work something out. :)
In the meantime, The Unicorn’s gotta make a living. Excelsior!
