Been flirting with girl for a while now, its obvious, colleagues at work know, in staff room with a few of them and her, they see what’s going on, they all leave, one by one.  I’m setting up for the moment of truth, black out nervous, work up the courage, ask her out.

she says: “Today?… I’m going to Thailand in two months.”

Never heard that one before, don’t know what to say, say a half-confused and disappointed “OK”.

turn around.

walk away.
