Speech Flirt


Speech Flirt

During a conference, I was pleasantly surprised to be seated next to a very handsome man. We flirted casually through dinner, then grew restless as the dignitaries gave speeches.

During one particularly long-winded lecture, my new friend drew a # sign on a cocktail napkin. Excited, I wrote down my phone number.

Looking startled for a moment, he flipped the napkin over and drew another # sign, this time adding an X to the upper-left-hand corner.


Haaaaa. Totally did not see that coming. Even after reading the punch line my first thought was that his drawing with the X in the corner was depicting trying to close a window on a computer screen. I thought hmm the X is in the upper right corner in windows… then came the aha moment…:man_facepalming:
