Dreams Really Do Fall Through

| Long Beach, CA, USA | Flirting

(My co-worker and I are sitting at the front desk, waiting for something to do, and this girl walks into our office.)

Me: “Hi, how can I help you?”

Girl: “Hi! I was wondering if you’d marry me?”

Me: “Wait, what?”

Girl: “Will you marry me?”

Me: “I don’t even know you.”

Girl: “Well, my name is ****.”

(She then goes on to tell me her favorite things, her hobbies, and the name of her three-year-old pug. She even shows me a picture of it. Then she expects me to tell her about myself. I didn’t say a word, but my co-worker decides to join in the fun.)

Co-worker: “His name is ****. He loves hockey, playing video games…”

(This co-worker happens to be an ex-girlfriend, which is why she knows so much about me.)

Girl: “Wow, I imagined you being so different.”

Co-worker: “Nope, he’s really that lame.”

Girl: “Never mind then.”
