Overheard Downtown

As I was working last night, I witnessed this exchange-

Young Teenage Male: Excuse me Miss, you dropped something...

An attractive woman in her mid-twenties and I both looked down to see what he was talking about.

YTM: ...The conversation!

The attractive woman kept walking.

YTM: C'mon, I'll meet you halfway. I'm right here, I'll meet you halfway!

Finally she turned around and smiled, though she kept going.

I wish I'd been that slick when I was a kid.

Quin,

He's one of those cats that exhibit a "nothing to lose and everything to gain" attitude.

Bubs,

He was even smoother than the post sounds. When I tried the same, I got shot down like a B-24 over the Polesti oil fields, but that's a story for another day.

Quin,

I wish I could, there's too much going on and all will be explained come Sunday or Monday.
