Hey baby, what's your sign?

Today I was at our local Winn Dixie pickin' up the fixin's for Phil's father's day bashilicious dinner. The place was hoppin' busy. Eden and Phil were at home so rather than entertain my cute-but-at-times-impatient daughter during the wait I picked up People magazine and began to read about Elizabeth Smart (she is 20 now and finally speaking out about her abduction).

Then the following conversation occurred between myself and the fifty-ish man in line ahead of me...

Man: I gotta get me a lawyer.
Me (reluctantly looking up from People): hmmm?
Man: You so purty, I got a crook in my neck from starin'.
Me (awkwardly looking back down to People while giving a reserved half-smile): mmmm...

I kid you not. Plllease!

So what is your favorite pick up line (either that you've used or that someone has attempted to use on you)?

Haha!! I would have felt slightly awkward!!

Hmm... I know I've had some BAD pickup lines used on me before, and of course now I can't remember any of them! If I think of one, I'll be back to share.

This wasn't a pick up line used directly on me...but someone called my dad for advice on how to get me to go out with him. He said, "I really want to date her. She is the best looking heifer in the herd." My dad still won't let me live that down.

It wasn't Ryan was it? That is very funny.

No good pick up lines from me...but I did get a marriage proposal at a laundry mat from a perfect stranger.

Once a few years ago, I was walking up Center Street about 15 feet behind some other lady who I never got a good look at (since I was behind her, you know). Up in front of her was this 60ish man coming down the street. He passed her, and then as he passed me, he said, "Am I in the middle of a beauty pageant or something?"

Funny, and a little odd, if you ask me. The man wasn't creepy or anything though. More like a cute old guy.
