Fooled by a beautiful girl

Have you been approached for an opinion or an advice by a stranger while browsing through the aisles of a shop? I am asking this question to men. Tell me, have you ever been in such a situation? Well, that is what happened to me at FNAC when I was casually looking at camera accessories. A beautiful girl emerged out of nowhere asking for help. She started in French and quickly switched to English when she knew the extent of my language skills.

To tell you the truth, I couldn't speak for a few seconds. There were two things I did. Both of the actions were involuntary. The first one was to look around to ensure the dazzling smile was indeed directed to me. Once that was confirmed, I rubbed my nose. That was primarily to hide my stupid smile. Of all the people, she wanted to ask me for advice!

She wanted to get a new camera and I looked like a guy who knew what I was doing. Did my ego get a sudden boost? You may take a guess. Now, I have to act the part. So I checked what kind of camera she had now. She was hesitant at first. It was a Sony. I asked her what her budget was. She had a 600 euros. That is quite a lot of money. Then she started laughing.

She introduced herself to me and pointed to my young friend watching from a distance. It was his girlfriend and they were playing a practical joke on me. We had a good laugh. Later she pointed out to my friend, "He was nice. He didn't even ask for my number while I was talking to him". What do I say to that?

  5. Nona, this reminded me of an incident when I was about 17 or 18. I was living in Lonavla at that time, which has a naval base. So seeing handsome naval guys was a good timepass.:-D

    One day I was at this general store, you know the type that sells everything from safety pins to clothes to costume jewellery. I was selecting some stationery, when this drop-dead handsome navy guy comes in and starts choosing some costume jewellery. He selects 2 and then turns to me suddenly and asks, which one I would choose. I am flustered and I try to nonchalantly choose one.

    And what does the guy do? He picks the other one to purchase, saying that the recipient of the gift is not like me !

    I was like, "Huh !!!!!!"
