One evening during the week Kiera and I were going for pizza.We were walking down the street behind three drunken guys. One said to his friends: “It’d be great if there were two hot girls behind us.”His friends didn’t hear, so he repeated it.”It’d be great if there were two hot girls behind us.”They heard and he turned around to look at us and exclaim: “Wow, and here are two hot girls.”Needless to say we kept walking as he said: “That didn’t go as well as planned.”I hope he had better luck later in the night.
