I’ve had a drought on the crazy pick-up line front (although an old man and his wife did buy me a Cuba Libre at the Dupont Mansion in Varadero, which was a little on the weird side) but it was well worth the wait.
I had to go out to the drugstore for some provisions this morning where some guy starts chatting me up with the following line:
You know, you’re much taller than Jon Bon Jovi. You’re more the size of Bret Michaels.
This frankly stands on it’s own and doesn’t need a lot of commentary from me. Maybe comparing me to a badass chick rockstar – Joan Jett? Patti Smith? – would have been more effective. Just one thought. I might also mention that my brief Googling has revealed that JBJ stands 5 foot 10, and Bret Michaels, 5 foot 9.
I’m 5 foot 3.
