As big of a football fan as I am, I'm actually not talking about sports today... not really. I'm talking about the club, the bar, the beach house and any other place where buying a drink is involved.
How do you convert "trying to holla" into a drink? You can laugh all you want to, but this is a skill I've yet to master and I'm SO serious about making it happen.
1. Whatcha drinkin?
Pass: You're holding a drink - a fella says what are you drinking and heads to get you another from the bar.
Fail: You're hold a drink - a fella says what are you drinking, you answer and he says, oh ok. I like those.
2. I'm thirsty
Pass: You're chatting it up with a fella, you say, I'm thirsty... he says you want something to drink? and heads to the bar to get you a drink.
Fail: You're chatting it up with a fella, you say I'm thirsty (and pause a lil bit)... then you say I think I'm going to head to the bar (and pause a lil bit)... Then he says I'll see you when you get back.
I typically fail at 1 and 2.
Another proven technique is to have a man and/or husband, but I haven't mastered that technique yet either... baby steps people, baby steps.
I will also say that when I'm not trying to get a drink, the fellas always want to buy me a drink. Maybe when I AM trying to get a drink they smell the thirst coming off of me. Sad.
Nevertheless, I need more techniques. Ladies and fellas, how do I convert "trying to holla" into a beverage?
