Two college girls asking for a corkscrew

This is one of those things that didn't seem like much at the time, but on second thought may have been much, much more. Or maybe not.

I heard a knock last night, pretty much right after I got home from a ride. I opened the door to find two very cute college girls, one with a bottle of wine, standing in my doorway.

"We were wondering if you have a corkscrew?" one asked

"No, uh sorry. I wish I did because I need one too!" was my response.

Then they left, seemingly disappointed.

On second thought the whole encounter seemed strange. So now I'm either completely oblivious or completely egotistical. Which is it?

C'mon, you expect us to believe this?


What self-respecting gay guy would be caught dead without a corkscrew.
Have we a breeder curious in our midst?

You should have taught them the pen trick.

And chased tail.

If you're into that sort of thing.

His profile says computer programmer. We tend to miss out on that kind of obviousness. If it's not something as blatant as "Nice shoes, lets F" he'd prob. assume they just want to chat.

The Clifton response (if it's a halfway decent bottle of wine):
"Sure, let me get that for you. Wait here, my apartment's a mess."
- Take bottle, lock door, go back to playing Halo 3 and enjoy free refreshments.

I put that first 'we' in there for a reason. Took over a week of hanging out and her finally kissing me to realize the current GF was interested in more than just friends.

Heres what you should have done.

" No, I don't but I will. Wait here(or at there place, get dorm # / Cell phone)

Rode to the store bought a 2 dollar corkscrew. Came home.

Opened the wine, invite them in. Drink.

Have a night to tell your friends about.

I can't believe you're that gay that you wouldn't sleep w/ them cuz if you were that gay, you'd have a corkscrew. It's like a catch-22.

Well, I actually do have a corkscrew, apparently. According to my bf it's in one of the kitchen drawers. I needed it the other night and couldn't find it anywhere though... so maybe he brought it on his business trip and he's trying to trick me!
