I'm straight. Not that it matters, but I think it's an important thing to consider on this story.
  1. A couple of years ago I was shopping in Costco.
  2. I was trying to decide which Parmesan cheese to buy.
  3. This one...
    449d3cb6 6035 4543 afae 5f180f0fd897
    It's like little slivers of tastiness.
  4. Or one more like this one.
    Becb0754 e768 4451 87d4 b227f218c64b
    Its like shaved bits of tastiness.
  5. I had them both in my hands.
  6. Out of the blue a guy said "Oh, get this one."
    1ac6c874 0d13 4a71 8fab 589553070bdb
    And points to this one.
  7. I said "Oh yeah? You like this?"
  8. He says "Yeah, it's really great. I eat it for breakfast with some nuts."
  9. Me "For breakfast?"
  10. Him "Yeah. I grab a little handful of that stuff and a few nuts and just pop 'em in my mouth."
  11. Me "Oh. Cheese and nuts?"
  12. Him "Oh yeah. I just love putting nuts in my mouth."
  13. Me "Huh. So, this cheese?"
    Totally clueless!
  14. Him "For sure. I just love having nuts in my mouth."
  15. Me "Huh. Okay. So, uh, thanks."
    And I walked away, continuing with my shopping.
  16. ...
  17. ...
  18. ....
  19. About two hours later...
  20. Palm to forehead.
  21. Me "OH!! Nuts in his mouth! I get it."
  22. I feel bad for not at least thanking him for flirting. I feel flattered.
