Way back in the day, 100 years ago or so.
Friday and Saturday night cruising was a big deal and a great way to meet girls. I was with a buddy at the time, we were big gym rats, trained together and always thought having a good set of arms/shoulders and a smile was a great in.
We were driving in my Mustang GT at the time, one of many money pits that I had sunk most of my salary into and was souped up, tinted, rimmed and had an awesome stereo.
We had seen these hot girls in a Jeep cruising several times and we had flirted, but were never side by side on the same run through the cruising strip, but they weren't the only girls we were interested in on that night.
So after a stop for some eats, we were pulling out of McDonald's as, low and behold, in pulled the Jeep. We were waiting to exit and they were waiting for in on the drive thru so we were driver to driver.
With the windows down, and the jeep wide open we make an attempt to engage the two in the Jeep when the driver started with a green light if ever I had heard one.
"Hey, I really like your body, that is gorgeous"......
I responded that I was impressed with hers too, my chest all inflated and thinking I was within sight of closing escrow.
"Oh, you thought I was talking about you? I meant the car you arrogant dick" and drove ahead into the drive thru.
Put Down - Achieved. Ego? Shot to sh*t.
