What’s the best pick-up line you’ve ever heard?
I was having coffee this week with one of my coffee place friends and he shared a great story with me. He was in college at Vanderbilt and played on the basketball team; and in fact, was a very good college player. One day he was walking to class when he felt a tug, more like a grab, on his shoulder. Someone then spun him around and said to him,”If you would learn how to go to your left more you would score more.” The party said nothing more to him and quickly went on their way. Much to his surprise the party making the evaluation of his basketball skills was a coed who also attended Vanderbilt. I think one would have to say that was a pretty clever line. Was it truly a player evaluation, or “Hey, I’ve noticed who you are” statement?
We got out of the car and started walking across the parking lot. On the way we intercepted two car hops, who were on skates, I kid you not; yes, roller skates. We took their order pads and pencils and walked to the girl’s car. By now the two girls had begun to take some notice of us. Their car windows were down, so I walked up to the driver’s side of the car, the one my friend assigned me, and I said, ” Uh, may I take your order?”
Well, evidently we both had some creditability, the coed who gave some basketball advise; and me, with my, “May I take your order” line. My coffee drinking friend and his coed wife have been married for thirty plus years. And for me, tonight and “The one who was driving,” are going to a show and dinner to celebrate our forty-ninth wedding anniversary.
What’s the greatest pick-up line you’ve ever heard, or used yourself?
Come on…don’t be so vain.
