Bad Pick Up-Lines & Spoon Collections

As a girl who goes out to bars (less now than before) I’ve heard my share of bad pick-up lines.

You know – those phrases that they use in movies to prove just how horrible a character is at picking up the opposite sex.  Things like “Is that a mirror in your pocket? Cause I can see myself in your pants” (crude) or “Excuse me, I seem to have lost my Nobel Prize/World Series Ring/Victoria’s Secret ID Bage/Insert Outlandish Item…have you seen it?” (seriously?!) or “Did it hurt? When you fell from heaven? Cause you’re an angel.” (Awww…vomit!)

My “favorite pick-up line moment” comes from my first year of college.  As a freshman girl on campus, I believe the term is more frequently coined “Fresh Meat” and I certainly explored the night life of that campus with a dangerous naitivite.

One particular night a few of my friends and I had found our way to an off-campus party.  With easily 50+ people packed into a tiny space I found myself chatting with a cutie on the couch for over an hour. I really thought we were hitting it off.

Finally he put his arm around me on the couch and pulled me in close to whisper “Hey, so I don’t ask every girl I meet this, but would you maybe like to come upstairs and see my spoon collection?”

No people, I could not make that up if I tried.

I looked at him and asked “Do I come across as that stupid or that drunk?”

To his credit, he smiled at me, pulled his arm away and said “Obviously not enough of either” before saying a kind good-bye and moving on.

At least he's trying?
