Target


Target its nice. The clientele is upper-scale and the ladies who work there are certainly a cut above par. When I go to Target I tend to make a big production out of it; walking all over the store and looking at about every aisle that interests me. So I'm walked through the men's section and by a wall were all the cool hats were was a shock of blond hair. I couldn't make out her body between all the clothing racks, but made my way over to "check out the hats" and saw this beautiful woman! She was wearing hippy, pegged capri style jeans and a a cute white shirt and was about 5' 6" and around 140 or so. I thought, "wow!" (I know, imaginative word) I moseyed around the men's department looking at ties and then decided there is nothing I could do there about speaking to her so headed to look at some shoes. Really, I'm not a big shopper or anything, but I've found a couple of good pairs on clearance before. I didn't need some flip flops so there was no dice on any other shoes.

After that I walked to the 10 items or less lane and there she was, the next person in line in front of me. She only had five or so items and set them down on the big black rolling belt. I sat my basket down behind her stuff and noticed she had "Failure To Launch" as a DVD. "Overcome the Shyness" was my mantra.

I leaned my elbows on the basket and asked, "Is that a good movie?"

"I don't know, I haven't seen it yet."

Just then the belt lurched forward and in true "The Gods Must Be Crazy" fashion my arms are jerked out from under and I look completely like a spaz.

She added, "I have a problem returning movies I rent on time and figure it's cheaper to buy the movie instead of renting it."

By this time she was rung up and paid for her bill and as she walked away I said, "Enjoy the movie."

"Thanks", she said, smile and "left the building".

Now:

A) she was really cute.
typically I would have freaked out and said nothing (like I did in the men's department)
C) she at least talked to me-that's a plus
D) how in the hell can my friend do that and get a number or a date? What's next? I know it was short, but there has to be something beyond that random encounter?

Have I learned anything yet? No, not really, but at least I'm thinking about the situations and trying to think differently.

Happy 4th of July!

Here's a hint, a brief look into the mysteries we women hold close and dear and that we expect you men to know by instinct. She spoke to you a second time, that was an opportunity she gave you. A smile and a "Can I buy you a coffee?" would in all probability have opened the door a little farther. But before you go that distance, check the hand for hardware. If there is no ring, feel free to proceed. What is the worst that can happen? She can say "No thank you, I'm seeing someone." Rest assured, you won't stop breathing and you won't explode. Chances are she'll say "I'd like that." and I'm sure you are bright enough to take it from there.

SONORANKAT,

Thank you for the insight! This will become part of my conscious thoughts when I have my next encounter. Yes, yes, yes, women are people too!
