Airport Lounge...


Him: Nice ring. Topaz and diamonds?

Her: Thanks. Yes.

Him: Somebody likes you...

Her: Ha, yeah. I like me. I bought it.

Him: Hmmm... what's your boyfriend supposed to buy?

Her: You're assuming I have a boyfriend.

Him: Ah, independent woman.

Her: You say that like it's a bad thing.

Him: Men like to feel needed, ya know.

Her: Men like convenience with no attachment.

Him: That can work out ok for women, too.

Her: Sometimes. I prefer to know who I'm having fun with.

Both sip their drinks quietly.

Him: Bartender, give this lady a drink on me.

Her: Bartender, this lady can buy her own drinks.

Him: Ouch.

Her: Why would you buy a woman something?

Him: (smiling) Well...

Her: Uh huh. Which is exactly why I said no.

Him: What if I'm your Prince Charming?

Her: I think I would've figured that out by now.

Him: You'll never notice if you keep that wall up.

Her: Time for me to catch my flight.

She picks up her purse and walks out of the lounge.

Bartender: mmm mmmm... nice ass on that.

Him: Nice package all around.
Hope she lets someone buy her a drink someday.

Damn! Not sure if I should stand up and applaud or go put on another set of steel boxers! :p

Been there, done that, haha.......
now i feel too old to worry about prince charming.......

kdzu said...

Hell, I'll applaud. Well done. Makes you feel both sides of the equation. Tough on guys to just be themselves with no ulterior motive. We tend to never grow up until it's too late.

Jean said...

B.C. - hehe...can you applaud AND wear those boxers?

Nea - I refuse to be too old!

Larry - sad, but true... but, late is better than never, eh?

Have a drink on me Jean! That was way entertaining.
I would have loved to have been the 'tender watching that square-off!

curmudgeon said...

If I'm allowed to buy you one that is...

Jean said...

I'd be honored, Dave.

Hey, us girls can buy each other drinks, right?? Cuz I don't swing that way. It would just be a nice couple of glasses of wine together!!

Someday.

Jean said...

LL - us girls can definitely do that! I don't swing that way, either.

B.C. said...

"I don't swing that way, either."

Damn. There goes another fantasy shot all to Hell... ;-)

Jean said...

B.C. - ya know... oh, never mind. Grrrrrrrrrr...
