Borrowing/Revising a title from a fabulous fellow blogger, The Lost Plum, I feel like sharing a few reasons why the Summer of Single makes total sense....I now present you with "A Random Pull" or "Reasons Why I Am Still Single."
Sidenote: for those of you who have never heard of a "pull," it is the art of trying to seduce someone, largely used in England...but I like it better than "pick up lines" because those can be a total joke. The "pull" is rarely ever intended as a joke...except when I laugh at them...to their faces.
If you desire a more formal definition--> Verb. 1. To seduce a desirable person, to sexually attract someone. Also commonly heard in the male expression pull a bird meaning to attract a female.
Background: At a bar with Senorita CalienteMess when I notice a Boring Dude at the Bar that has tried to add me to Facebook TWICE and been denied TWICE. I don't know him and I have never seen him in person...until now. And scene....
Boring Dude at Bar: So where do you work?
Me: Small local company.
Boring Dude at Bar: What do you do?
Me: Consulting stuff.
Boring Dude at Bar: Where do you like to hang out?
Me: Anywhere with friends.
Boring Dude at Bar: Do you ever use more than 5 words in a sentence?
Me: Nope. Never.
Boring Dude at Bar: So, why did you come over here? To talk to me?
Me: Nope. Open seat. You looked deceptively interesting. Oops. S'what I get for assuming.
Boring Dude at Bar: Did you major in Being Vague with a minor in Sarcasm?
Me: *laughing hysterically* That is the ONLY funny thing you said all night!
Boring Dude at Bar: So does that mean you want to facebook friend me tomorrow?
Me: BWAHAHAHAHA! Nope.
