Was at the grocery store tonight and passed a young woman in the soda aisle.
“Wow, it must be a tough night if you’ve got TWO limes.”
“What? [looks in hand] Oh, yeah.”
“Isn’t that enough for eight Coronas?”
“It’s always good for a lime to have a buddy.”
“For sure, you don’t want him to get lonely.”
I was feeling extremely introverted (blew off an earlier approach opportunity of a woman reading a book in the deli line because of it) so I ejected. Sometimes there are moments where it’s best to pack it in, and when you dread speaking to anybody including the dude stocking the shelves is one of those times.
