What the

My phone just rang.  This is what it said:

ME: Dean's Office, Liz speaking.

Total Stranger: Hi Liz.

ME: Hi?

TS: My name is Evan.  I stopped in the office the other day but you were very busy so you may not remember me.

ME: O . . . K.

TS: Anyway I just thought that you were very nice, and I wondered if you might like to get coffee sometime.

ME: Uhhh, I have a boyfriend, so I really don't think that would be appropriate.

TS: Well, just because you have a boyfriend, doesn't mean you can't have friends!

ME: Uh, yeah, well . . .

TS: I mean, you make having a boyfriend sound like a prison sentence!

[Note to reader: I think I made having a boyfriend sound like the most convenient and wonderful excuse in the world.]

ME: Uh, yeah, but, I have no idea who you are.

TS: Well, this was a mistake.



The moment that he said I was very nice, I wondered if he was going to try to sell me toner cartridges.  Or if he had just dialed a very wrong number.  I am not nice at work.  Usually when a total stranger walks in the room, which happens, like, never, I have just minimized livejournal or stuffwhitepeoplelike and I am making a face like a deer in the headlights.
