Call & Answer

Not mine, I claim no skill whatsoever with the art of the pick-up line, but one that seemed to work on occasion (depending, of course, on the guy, the delivery, his confidence, the bar, the chica in question etc etc) was something along the lines of;

a) I'm: a Marine / in the Corps / a steely eyed killer.

and possibly

a1) I'm: going to war / just got back from combat / the greatest stud the world has ever known.

One had to keep in mind however, that just because one is far away from one's stateside home base doesn't necessarily mean that one is far away from any other military base, otherwise one just might get the best. response. ever. from the pretty lady.

"Military, huh? Out-Friggin'-Standing, me too! Gunnery Sergeant Suzan Smith. Where did you say that you were out of again?"


Sometimes it was kind of nice watching one of my buddies crash and burn once in a while, instead of moi...

Bwahahahaha!!!! That is awesome. I would have loved to have seen his face. Nothing like getting that deer-caught-in-the-headlights look!

That is one of the great things about being a female...there is generally no pick up line necessary and if by some chance it becomes necessary, "Interested?" is usually enough. :-D

What a beautiful country we live in, no? :)

Murphy said...

Drc: That deer in the headlights look? Welcome to my world.

Snigglefrits: Hahaha! Yup, we're dogs.

tam: God Bless America, indeed.

Snigglefrits said...

Nah Murphy...y'all aren't dogs. You're just not near as much work as us women types.

My favorite recently...sitting in a bar, with an empty seat on each side, and some guy yahoo asks me to move closer to talk to him because he "can't hear out of this ear."

Son, why can't you hear out of that ear? You been blowed up? 'Cause I have, and I can hear you just fine from here.

[roll eyes]

But nothing hold a candle to lines you could get drinking at the Globe and Anchor on Okinawa...
