Lesson 2 - Introductory Flirting
I have a friend who is only interested in finding a girl that he can play war games with, to a high standard, but so that he will always just win in the end. He also has the feet of a hobbit. For these reasons, he is unlucky in love.
In Freshers' Week 2007, he decided to take advantage of the fact that he was now a second year by chatting up a fresher called Catherine. I wandered over, aiming to ruin his night, but he seemed to take my presence in his stride and began to introduce his new found ladyfriend to me:
(drunken slur) "Bellend, this is Chesca."
"No, that's your sister's name."
(visibly panicked) "Er, no, er, I meant Chloe."
"No, that's my girlfriend's name."
(desperate flailing) "Catherine! Her name's Catherine! Oh, she's gone."
He turned around to stop her, but she had walked away very quickly. He then turned back around but I too had walked off.
The next time he tried to flirt with a girl, he ended the night by vomiting over a doctor whilst sprawled over a mobility scooter in the entrance to a chapel, so perhaps his time with Catherine should be considered a relative success.
