The Boyfriend Application
This cartoon is based on a real encounter on the downtown-bound 6 train. I remember it was very early; I had practically sleepwalked my way down East 82nd street… He was a college guy, disheveled hair, heavy books, backpack and all. Morning caffeine having barely kicked in, I stared blankly up at him until I managed to squeak, “OHHH! Sorry, the position has been filled!”
“Aww, that’s too bad,” said Cute College Guy. “It was worth a shot. Let me know if anything opens up.”
My friends rolled around laughing when they heard of that morning’s encounter:
We must give College Guy some credit though! While I certainly hope he wasn’t looking at a BFA in Creative Writing, this pick-up line definitely made me laugh. You giggled too. You know you did.
