Vox Populi: The Girl At The Bakery

The cute kid rang up my order.

"Don't you usually get croissants?" she asked.

"No," I replied.

" I thought you were the guy that gets croissants."

" You have confused me with some other unattractive man."

She laughed out loud and covered her mouth and nose with her hand.  After she recovered, she opened the register to get my change.  She affected a regal bearing.

" Actually," she said as she handed me my change. "You are a very handsome man."

"Wow," I replied. "So what time do you get off?"

She laughed again.

" Wellllllllllllllll.  How should I put this?" she said as she looked to the ceiling.

She looked back at me.

" You are a handsome older gentleman."

"Gotcha," I replied.  " See you later."

"Thanks for coming in," she said.  She winked. 

Not a bad start to a rainy Saturday.  Maybe I should get some croissants next time.

I can identify at least two lies in this exchange.
