Totally appropriate

Just got this email from a buddy of mine:
So, I just got out of lunch and I'm walking down 5th Street in downtown Austin talking on my phone. I end the call as I'm crossing the street at the crosswalk, at the last second realize the girl walking towards me has on a Florida shirt.

Without hesitation (TOTAL Tourette's), I yell, and I mean yell - like leaning in and walking towards her with my right hand cupped around my mouth - "BOOOOOOOOOoo Booooooooooooooooooooo Boooooooooooooo!!!!!!"

She literally shifted gears into this quick walk / run so fast that I didn't even realize how inappropriate I was acting, and by the time I did, I was standing alone in the middle of the intersection (because naturally, I followed her off the path of the crosswalk out where the cars are).

Let me back up - so, to onlookers (which were plenty), here is this guy walking down the street in a suit with a briefcase on his shoulder who "boos" a passerby for no apparent reason. Let me add, I have on ZERO UGA clothes right now. To them, I'm sure it looked like a scene straight out of Jackass.

I hope football season comes soon so at least I can have an excuse. That was just wrong and I'm almost embarrassed (who are we kidding, not really but, I do feel bad).

Hey, if she didn't want to get accosted in the street in Texas, the girl shouldn't have gone outside wearing gator clothes.
