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.
