Home of Rhett & Link fans - the Mythical Beasts!

I did not use "Well, it depends" today, but things still went pretty well.

A lady came up to the counter and asked what "S.S." stood for. None of us volunteers could remember the German. I asked Rachel, one of the Volunteer Services Operational people, and she couldn't remember, either. It was funny to see a bunch of people standing around, trying to make up German words. Anyway... All of a sudden, Jon* comes down the staircase. I grinned.

Me: Maybe Jon knows. Hey, Jon, what does S.S. stand for?!
Jon: (surprised) What??

He walked closer, smiling and looking confused.

Me: Do you know what S.S. stands for? This lady wanted to know.
Jon: Oh, ja. Schutzstaffel.
Me: Schutzstaffel?
Jon: Yeah. I thought you were saying I looked like a member of the S.S.!
Me: Ha! Oh, no!
Jon: Didn't one of the princes dress up like a Nazi at a party?
Me: Yeah, a few years ago.
Jon: Wasn't it the redhead?
Me: Yep, Prince Harry.
Jon: Is he the redhead?
Me: Mmhmm. The dumber one.
Jon: (laughs)
Me: Prince William is the one who's going to be king, thankfully.
Jon: Apparently a congressman dressed up like Hitler for some party recently.
Me: Oh, great!
Jon: Yeah, he got in trouble.
Me: Prince Harry did, too! You can't mess around with that stuff... But, no, I didn't think you were a member of the... Staffel?
Jon: Schutzstaffel. (smiles)
Me: Schutzstaffel. Thank you.
Jon: No problem. See ya. (turns around and nearly walks into a column)

Me: (once he's out of earshot) That was a great way to get him over here. I like him.
Rachel: You like him?? Awww! He's a very nice boy. Hey, Chris, we gotta get Jonboy and Sara together.
Me: (busies self with cards) Oh gosh, you guys. I gotta-- I'm gonna put these back! (runs away; when I come back, they're still talking about it)
Rachel: He's recently single, so the timing is right.
Chris: What kind of music do you like?
Me: I like all kinds!
Chris: Oh, everyone says that. What's your favorite?
Me: If I had to pick, my favorite is classic rock...
Chris: Do you like Nirvana?
Me: Yes! That counts, according to most stations.
Chris: Jon loves Nirvana. Well, there ya go.
Rachel: Write on his Facebook wall. And maybe the two of you can go to the next big party together.

Then, when I left, I went out a different way because I wanted to say goodbye to him. And he was outside, talking to Chris. And he watched me all the way till I was gone down the steps.

*the boy I like that Tylar loves to bring up

We all know that he ran into the column because he was just too dazzled by your charm to think clearly.
Comment by Sara (Squinchilla) on October 21, 2010 at 7:04pm
I think he would've run into the column a lot sooner, then. I was trying to keep him engaged in conversation. xD

OooOOoOoh! Juicay.

Though I think you should have gone with something more along the lines of... "I love it when you speak German to me, baby...", while batting your eyelashes and raising a brow.
