Have you ever been sitting at a table on the sidewalk with friends on a nice summer night enjoying drinks when all of the sudden some random person says, "Excuse me, sorry for interrupting" and slips you a napkin with his/her name on it and their phone number? Yea - me neither - unless of course you are my girlfriend, Jen. Because this is exactly what happened to us last Friday night (ew - I just sang that in my head like that stupid f*cking song by Katy Perry - not a fan).
So, here we are, sitting outside of Bar Louie in the CWE enjoying our cocktails with another guy from my class. All of a sudden, random dark headed boy interrupts our conversation, drops the napkin and leaves. Seriously? SRSLY? Did that just happen? Why yes, yes it did. We couldn't believe it. Jen and I were awe struck. That was one helluva ballsy move. So as Jen sits there blushing, we continue to gush about what just happened.
First things first, we check out the area code. Shit. 407 - that's definitely not good ol STL. Immediately googling it, we find out it's Orlando - which supports his handsome Latino looks. He must be a transplant to the STL area. I ask Jen if she's going to text him and she says, "Of course. What do I have to lose?!" Precisely.
So I get a text from Jen yesterday and our conversation goes something like this:
Jen: Napkin boy lives in New York. Typical.
Me: Bullshit. WTF. Why did he even give you his number then? Did he think he could fly you up for a weekend rendezvous?
Jen: No idea...it's kind of annoying actually. And if I am really being honest, it makes sense, STL boys would NEVER approach a girl like that, if at all.
So riddle me this - guys, why the hell would you give your number out to someone like that, get her excited and make her feel flattered if you knew there was absolutely no chance. WTF was this dude thinking? Did he really think he was that hot and that smooth that she would text him immediately and hook up with him while he was in town then she'd move to NYC and live happily ever after (seriously doubt the last part, only the first)? Seriously? SRSLY? I just don't understand the male species. Someone please explain.
Once again, proof that guys are idiots.
