Diet Coke Jim walks into a bar for the second time today…
DIET COKE JIM: Do you like [your coworker]?
ME: Well, sure I do.
DCJ: I think that [your coworker] is pretty. Do you think [your coworker] is pretty?
ME: I do.
DCJ: What should I talk about with her?
ME: Well, I dunno. Maybe tell her that you think she looks really nice today. Girls like to hear that they look nice.
DCJ: Okay, I’ll try it.
Several minutes pass.
DCJ: Can I tell you something?
DCJ: I did it.
ME: Did what?
DCJ: I told [your coworker] that I think she looks nice today.
ME: Good for you. What’d she say?
DCJ: She smiled.
ME: Well, that’s a start, right?
DCJ: But now I don’t have anything else to say to her.
ME: I’m sure you’ll think of something.
DCJ: I really hope she doesn’t come back over here because I’m out of things to say to her.
ME: I wouldn’t worry yourself too much over it.
DCJ: I hope she goes home soon. (Holds out a crumpled beverage napkin.) Would you throw that away for me?
ME: Did you blow your nose into it?
