The guy in front of me in the supermarket line had four things on the belt- a half-gallon of milk, a carton of eggs, some lunchmeat and American cheese slices. He lives alone, I decided. He put the divider thing on the belt, so I arranged my selections. Looked at them, noticed something, chuckled softly. I think he worried that I was laughing at him, because he turned and looked at me questioningly. I pointed at my purchases.
"I have a color scheme!"
He considered this. "Orange," he said.
"Orangey-red," I agreed.
"Orangey-red . . . " Then he moved up to pay. I studied the Harry Potter DVD display until it was my turn at the register. The cashier asked my color-analysis buddy if he needed help carrying his purchases to the car. He told her that he thought he would be OK. As he picked up his bag, he turned slightly toward me with a grin, as if about to say something, but I was greeting the tired college student behind the register, and he decided to move on.
I hope that next time he decides to talk to the cute girl in the supermarket line. Just because I have a Sharif, that doesn't mean she will.

It's hard to talk to the cute girl when she has clearly turned her attention away. I don't think girls give guys enough credit for how hard it is to talk to girls.
Oh, I know it's hard. But I still hope he manages it.

That, or she says something more to him. (Since we're hoping she's single. We the benevolent strangers.)
Heh, yeah. "He seemed nice . . . based on his food purchases and his ability to recognize colors. Let's make him happy in hypothetical!"
(shakes fist menacingly) She better not have a Sharif! Let's go beat up this Cute Supermarket Girl From the Future!!
Unless, you know, it's some other guy named Sharif. Then that's ok.

Starting a conversation during/after grocery line needs some mad skills.
I mean it hard to talk to them in a talk-able environment, let alone a pay and go situation =)
Sounds presumtious of you to assume that you are so cute... but I suppose you must be honest with yourself about your looks, so its a good thing you know you are cute.
