A Woman Offered Her Daughter To Me Today

14 08 2008

So I was working at Barnes & Noble tonight just doing my same old customer service thing when I’m called to the front to gift wrap some books for a lady.  I didn’t do a very good job; I measured the paper wrong and took way too long to finish it all up.  But somewhere along the line I made an impression on this lady.  It might have been my charming sense of humor or my disarming good looks (probably both), but when I handed her the wrapped books she said to me “Do you have a girlfriend?  Because my daughter…” and she left it hanging like that.  I told her no, I didn’t have a girlfriend.  Then she said, “maybe I shouldn’t because she’s leaving for college soon.”  And I told her that I would wait and she should send her my way when she gets back.  She smiled at me as she left, as if to say “farewell, future son-in-law.”  :)  And that’s my story of how I was offered someone’s own daughter.  Sweet, eh?  Talk about flattering.

No if we could only get the daughters as interested as the mothers are…..
