and some clicking is happening. I introduce her to each of my friends as they get to the restaurant/bar.
From meeting my friends, she can fill in the blank spaces she needs to know about me. Every time she was in topic with one of my friends I looked at her so she could lock eyes with me every so often. I would drop my gaze to her lips and when she broke eye contact, I would restart a thread of conversation with someone else at the table where we were.
Since she previously told me she wanted to be a baker when she was a kid, when I saw her go to her phone to text when she wasn’t involved in talking I busted her chops about texting at the dinner table.
I told her she was rude for playing Bejeweled at the table then told her she had the manners of a church mouse. “Stepping outta line like that, missy is gonna earn you a spank.”
I then asked her about her specialty in baking. she told me she switched to cooking dinners at this point so I asked what she cooked the best of that. She went on to describe a Turkish dish made with eggplant.
“Oh my god, I LOVE EGGPLANT. You definitely will have to cook that for me sometime!” I told her. When she agreed to my joking comment positively I said. “We totally have to trade numbers.”
She took mine and texted me her name through I told her to do that since I don’t answer unknown calls. “I am available for dinner at 6.75 per hour and that includes provocative conversation.”
