SINGLE BUT NOT YET… 

By Neel Anil Panicker

Are you single?
Beg your pardon, what is it that you just said?

I said what you just heard which is I asked whether a lady as beautiful and charming as you is taken, engaged, disengaged, or some other variation of the same that alludes to the same?
Hypothetically speaking if I am one or the other of these fanciful expressions that you use to so eloquently to establish my existent or non-existent marital and/or social credentials, then what, if may ask, is that you propose to do further?
Well, in that case, I intend to propose to you and as a first step towards that,  invite you to join me for a cup of coffee.
I am sorry but that is not my cup of tea.

    I guess she put him in his place. He could have been a bit more subtle, don’t you think? I always enjoy reading your stories.

  3. This is an interesting interchange of conversation leading up to a dead end. Maybe he should try a different approach in the future and learn a little more about her interests first.
    Good SSS.

  4. I have to admire him for his boldness and honesty! That might work with some girls, and is certainly better than some of the lame pick-up lines we’ve heard. It would have made me laugh, but apparently she didn’t find him all that charming. Good vignette!

  7. Ouch – guess she let him know what she thought of his approach. Perhaps a gentler approach next time might get him a bit more welcome.
