Because of changes at work, for the rest of the month I'll be coming in to work an hour early. While that's fine because of the taxi reimbursement and everything, I don't like the shorter hours of sleep.
So anyway, being the model employee that I am, I decided to come to work a few hours earlier. If you're thinking this is another one of those CR moments, you're a pervert.
Anyway, knowing me, I can't stay inside the office for two hours doing nothing so I decided to go out and hang out in the nearest Starbucks.
For a payday Monday and a rush hour at that, the cafe I went to was surprisingly empty. Save for this cute girl reading Mitch Albom's Have A Little Faith. She was alone outside with her little book and kinda looked bored.
I've read parts of the book, and found some of it a little bit too preachy that's why I'm only a quarter through it. A month and a half after I bought it. She was almost at the end.
Anyway, I thought, it's been awhile since I talked to random strangers. Even longer to flirt with a girl. So I decided to do a Day Two.
Approach a random stranger and talk to her. Maybe flirt a little.
So I sat by the table beside hers. She was actually prettier up close. I like her nose. It's pointed, although she doesn't look like she's a half-blood. But she really has this nice pointed, semi-spanishy nose. She's not mestiza. Just fair. Probably from La Salle, I don't know. She's got that La Sallite feel the way she drinks her coffee.
So anyway, I decided to make my move. I mean I look decent today. Smelled of Guess Man. So I was at least presentable.
"That's Mitch Albom's newest book, right?" I asked.
She hesitated to answer. She looked around, checked if I was talking to someone else. But it was just the two of us.
She looked at me, kinda irritated. But she answered my question with a nod.
"I have a copy of one, but haven't finished it yet. Is it any good?"
She just looked at me, closed her book, packed up and left.
So there goes my day two. Attempt flirting with a girl and get dumped.
Epic fail, right?
