So I was checking out an apartment last night and stopped at the neighborhood giant bookstore to buy a cookie. I was one of the last two customer at the cafe in the store and the woman ahead of me was trying to decide her choice. She settled on a pretzel and was bantering back and forth with the clerks. She clearly worked there. She had given me the once over, but I was sure that she hadn't gotten a good look, so I made a comment about carbs and pretzels. She said that she hadn't eaten in a month and had dropped 20 pounds so what did she care about carbs? I responded with jeez, I just thought that's what people said these days. This resulted in more banter and then the introductions and wild sex.* She told about how her ex had cheated on her and I kept things moving with comments and then she went her way and I went mine. As I was leaving, she was giving directions as to the proper care and feeding of child. She looked like she maybe 23. Am I the one with the skewed perceptions here?
Anyway, apparently, I have developed some sort of pull. This is more than a little odd, but it probably has a lot to do with the fact that as talkative as I am, I really am not a people person. I like persons, though. I guess I am a person person.**
*One part of that sentence is false.
**As persons as persons?
