I heard a great tale over the holiday weekend, which I absolutely have to share...
It circles around my nephew, who is 19, great looking, popular, confident--just ask him. LOL. In fact, we’ve got a running joke in the family that if How to Hook a Hottie ever gets filmed, he’s going to try out to play the hottie baseball player. And it's only sort of a joke.
Anyway, last month he was in a Borders, picking up a book for a class, when he noticed a “hot girl” (his words) pursuing the YA shelf.
Searching for a way to meet her, he moved into the YA section, did a check of titles and found a copy of Top Ten Uses for an Unworn Prom Dress.
“Excuse me,” he said, holding up my book. “Have you read this?”
She looked up. “No, but actually, my sister did and loved it.”
He turned on The Smile. “Yeah, well, the author’s my aunt...”
“Really?” she said, smiling back.
Yada, yada, yada...he left Borders with the book he needed for school--and Hot Girl’s phone number.
I love it!
So my Prom Dress book helped my nephew Hook a Hottie. What’s next, the two of them trying out some ABC’s about Kissing???
So how about you? Ever been the deliverer or recipient of a spontanenous, creative pick-up line?
