One reason I’m still single is that I write & talk much better than I look.
- I have to bribe our way into a trendy night club while hordes of more elegant people enter for free.
I’ve also observed that I become more alluring to the girls as they consume more adult drinks. A 1971 country song titled, “Don’t the Girls All Get Prettier at Closing Time” may apply to me in an odd gender switch! In recent years I’m not the only one who has observed that the cool comfort of the grocery store is replacing the sizzling hormone & possibly drug-fueled atmosphere of the singles bar, and some groceries feature a bar where people can relax & socialize before or after they occasion up some groceries & perhaps a companion for the night. There’s consistently pleasant background rock n roll allowing one to have a good conversation instead of flopping around on the dance floor to the latest hip-hop accompaniment. I credit the store’s current HVAC & refrigeration systems that keeps customers cool, keeps frozen foods from thawing, maintains meats at about 40 degrees F, & vegetables at less than 55 degrees F. The store’s HVAC system also must safely detach heat from any in-store cooking machine while allowing the bakery odors to saturate the air. This provides the ideal temperature for old bachelors who still get nervous approaching a prospective supper date. The cool air will hide any beads of sweat & a wonderful pick-up line in the grocery store is to ask your potential date if she knows which aisle a gourmet item can be found. Both of us want fish to be fresh, but don’t be “fresh” yourself because a slap is still a respected rebuff in most places, even grocery stores.
