One Minute Writer Prompt: Pickup

The prompt for today was, Pickup. A la pickup lines or create a pickup line. I sort of took mine in a bit of another direction. Anyway, the point is to free write for one minute around the theme or what have you and then stop to see what you came up with in the short amount of time.
Great blog site, please check it out. I’m going to try to do one of these daily and post it here on my blog.

Here’s what I came up with…

What is a pickup line anyway? I mean, honestly. A silly line a guy or girl makes up in an attempt to start a conversation with that attractive person across the room that has caught their eye? Why not just be yourself? Sure, you might say the wrong thing, but you have to realize that these so-called pickup lines are not reflective to the person behind the words. Personally, I think they are not only overrated, but just plain silly. I would much prefer a guy come up to me and simply be himself. That, in my mind is the way to go. Ditch those crazy pickup lines, and be who you are.
