Sooo… I went out for dinner & drinks with my new roommate today, and she only speaks English, so:
me: *talks to her in english*
me: *turns to the bartender and orders in spanish*
bartender: *laughs* whoa, I wasn’t expecting that southern spanish accent from someone speaking english so well, such a contrast *laughs more*
me: *laughs as well*
and that’s it. roommate and i go sit and have dinner and bartender’s shift ends and we continue eating and don’t think a thing of it.
except then we go out
it’s been at least half an hour
and he’s standing there by the door, waiting for us to come out
and then he smiles shyly and hands me his phone number written on a pink post-it note
he’s very, very cute.
