Hooking a Hottie with a Prom Dress

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?

haha! Very cute!!

I like her reaction, no one ever believes my family when they catch someone reading my book and say I'm related. The reader thinks they're lying!

Good for your nephew!!

He sounds like quite the Casanova! That is hilarious. I've been married so long I wouldn't recognize a pick up line if it smacked me in the face.

I'm with Steph; it's been so long since I've heard/used one that I wouldn't know one if it bit on the butt! However, the last one that I DID use, (and it worked quite nicely) was "I'm falling for you like a blind roofer" and she actully agreed to marry me! Feel free to use it --It's gold!
