Last night I made a quick stop in the market for coffee and coffee filters They keep the coffee filters I like (unbleached) on a high shelf and I can’t reach them. So I stood nearby for a few minutes until somebody tall was near enough for me to ask for help. And sure enough, a very cute young man walked into my path.
Now, just for some context, I was on my way home from a meeting (and me being me, my meeting was in a bar). I was wearing jeans, a t-shirt and my favorite pair of converse. Oh, and my hair was in a pony tail. In other words, I looked like shit.
So I said to the cute, young man (very young, I’m guessing around 21/22), “Excuse me, you seem to have at least 7 inches on me, could you grab some coffee filters for me. The small ones.” I was so not hitting on him. But he blushed like I’d just asked him to come home and screw me senseless. He grabbed my filters and then lingered for a few seconds as I thanked him.
2 thoughts on this – a) now THAT’S a great way to pick up guys. b) he’s going to tell someone/everyone he knows that some old, ugly woman tried to pick him up in the market.
