Wouldn't it be nice if we actually met at a local bar instead of online?
CUE HEAVENLY DREAM SEQUENCE MUSIC
YOU: Hi there. I'm putting a few songs on the jukebox. Any requests?
ME: Sure. Anything by the Police or The Talking Heads. Surprise me.
YOU: You bet. I'll be right back.
SYNCHRONICITY BY THE POLICE BEGINS TO PLAY
ME: Nice choice. So, do you live in the area?
YOU: Yeah, just a few blocks away. I love this area of Brooklyn. So many great bars and restaurants. What are you drinking?
ME: Sauvignon Blanc. I'm going to order some fries or something. Want some?
YOU: Sure. So, what do you do?
ME: I'm in the creative side of advertising. I really like it. It can be stressful, but it can also be a lot of fun.
YOU: And when you're not working...?
ME: You know, the usual... movies, bars, good restaurants...hanging with friends in the neighborhood...a concert here and there...the occasional bowling adventure. When it's warm, I love having a catch in the park or heading over to the Brooklyn flea. Then of course, there's always the enjoyable night at home with my TV and a box of Kraft Mac & Cheese.
YOU: Mmm...any other kind of mac & cheese is just wrong.
ME: I know! Well, enough about me. Tell me about you.
