As a part of his outgoing – and flirtatious – nature, David has met a number of attractive females at work, and winds up asking them to lunch. These lunches have turned into lasting friendships, because while he may be a flirt, he’s also a good friend.
David and I used to have a tradition of going to Starbucks every Saturday morning for coffee and a pastry. It’s also one of our local Starbucks’ traditions to employ rather cute baristas. So we would often be waiting in line and I would notice a pretty girl behind the counter and just shoot David a wife look, like it was his fault someone was pretty.
After he paid, I would mutter, “I suppose you asked her to lunch.”
His face would light up, and he would respond, “That’s a great idea!”
Knowing what would happen if he tried asking a young barista to lunch, I would smugly reply, “You go right ahead.”
