I saw Elevator Girl on the way down to the lobby. I said, “Hey, Michelle. Big plans this weekend?”
And she said, “Hi, Fletcher. Yeah, nothing too special.”
She remembered my name. That was a pretty big deal!
So, feeling bolstered by my recent success with women, I said, “You know, we should have coffee some time.” But then I started to lose my nerve and began backtracking. “I mean, just because we’re in the same building. I have a girlfriend. I’m not asking you out or anything.”
Michelle laughed and said, “Yeah, sure.” Then she pulled out a business card and said, “Email me when you’re taking a break next time.”
Then we reached the lobby and she got out.
“Have a great weekend,” I said, holding her card with a big smile on my face. I know I am.
