A Man Meets a Woman in a Car
September 15, 2006 11:00am CST
Picture it: A man walks down the street, whistling a tune by Mariah Carey. He's chewing on a stick of gum, and holding a book about the native plant population of Iraq. Suddenly, a woman in a Ford Taurus drives up. She's wearing Versace clothing, and her hair is a lovely shade of dark brown, made possible by Clairol hair dye. She is a pharmaceutical representative, but she really dreams of becoming a real estate agent. She lowers the passenger window, and asks the man if he can direct her to the local mall, where she intends to buy lots of expensive jewelry. The man finds her attractive, but in an hour he has a class on child development. What should he do? More importantly, do you think this sort of discussion will make more money than one asking what's your favorite color?

It depends on four things: 1) Is the book in his hand open or closed? 2) If open, is he reading while walking? 3) Does the mall have at least one large department store? 4) Does the professor of Child Development have a last name beginning wthh a vowel? If the answer to all four is "yes," then he should ask for the woman's phone number.

Unfortunately probably not! Although it'll brighten the days of those that have the ability to read more than a one line post. ;) The guy should point out verbally where the mall is and then go to class, you never know, she might give him a lift for his efforts!
