Women are out everywhere doing what they do best: shopping.
It’s no surprise the one of the easiest ways to meet women is to talk about gift buying.
She’s a hotty in the Medical Reference section at Barnes & Noble bookstore.
She’s leaning against a railing with her face buried in a book.
I walk over, stand next to her, and pick up a book off the shelf.
I open the book and tap her on the arm while looking at the book.
“Do you think this is a good gift for a nurse, or do you think she’d be sick of stuff like this?”
I just got off the phone with my friend who hooked up with a nurse, that’s why it came to mind.
Immediately the girl starts giggling.
“She might already know everything,” she says.
“Everything?” I ask. “My sister is an architect and I’ve gotten her architecture books before. But she’s ambivalent about them. So maybe I shouldn’t get a medical reference for a nurse, right?”
“Or, she could think it’s interesting,” the girl says.
She has the deepest blue eyes. I can tell she’s thin but she’s wrapped up on a long blue coat so I can’t check out her body.
Damn you winter coats!
“Look, the human brain…” she says.
“You’re not a nurse, are you?”
“No. Sorry,” she says.
“Dammit!” I say with a playful anger. “I had such high hopes for you. You looked very medical over here in the medical reference section.”
She laughs. “Well, good luck with that!” she says.
“Thanks,” I say, pushing forward. “Let me guess, you’re a lawyer who helps injured people get a lot of money from corporations.”
“No,” she laughs.
“Darn! Wrong again,” I say.
“I work in higher education,” she says.
And we begin to get into deeper conversation. By the time I walk off, she’s complimenting me and thanking me for “stopping by to say hi.”
There’s almost nowhere you can’t go and ask a girl if something would make an appropriate gift.
You’ve got a mother, a sister, or a “friend” who all seem to need gifts this time of year.
Best make use of it.
