Friday Some friends and I went bar-hopping in North Beach. They were wondering how you get into conversations with strangers, especially women. I said I was no expert, but I’d been experimenting with this stuff for the last year or so. I walked up to a beautiful woman and asked if she knew a creative drink for me to order. Within a minute, this led into an hour-long playful conversation with some people from Ireland and Scotland, about accents, terrible strong drinks, and more. Out on the street, I got into a conversation with another woman. Five minutes later, we were kissing, and two hours later, we achieved an old goal of mine that I had long ago given up on. Wow!
Saturday Went on a more ordinary date: the Boardwalk in Santa Cruz, followed by watching Dopamine on DVD.
Sunday Had good, long talk with the ex-gf at Sparky’s Diner after having a great time browsing books together at Books, Inc.
