This. This is a new one for me…
Out last night to see friends perform.
While standing at the bar, talking to one of those friends, I was approached by a young man.
The friend and I are standing parallel to each other, but engaged in conversation. Now, I usually lean back against a bar with my arms kind of outstretched…I know this because it was once pointed out that the way I stand was “more like a guy than a girl…”
Whatever. But it’s important to note that my body language was what one might consider “open”. I digress…
Mid-conversation, I get elbowed.
Yes. In the ribcage.
I was talking to my boy on the right and on my left I got elbowed. As I mentioned, this is the type of event where I’m going to know people, so I’m half expecting to turn to my left and see a friend I haven’t seen in some time.
The stranger on my left is smiling. I squint (it’s dark, I’m not wearing glasses).
Don’t know him.
“Hi…did you just nudge me?”
“I wanted to start a conversation…”
I won’t tell you how the rest of the conversation went…I want you to tell me how the rest of the conversation went.
GUYS – would you do this?
LADIES – what would be your response?
PEOPLE WHO KNOW ME IN REAL LIFE… you are disqualified from responding. However, it does take the expected #mylifeisasitcom twist…
