Gentlemen, in the same vein as this video, I present a couple of rules regarding how to maintain a girl's interest.
Rule #1: Be interesting.
Rule #2: Be intelligent.
Rule #3: Don't be uninteresting.
Case in point:
Me: what do you do now?
Exhibit A: i'm making concertinas, in a small three-person workshop.
Me: what is a concertina?
Me: a little concert?
Exhibit A: a little accordion -- the little hexagonal ones they took on sailing ships
Me: you are building little accordions.
Me: that is oddly fascinating. why, pray tell, are you making concertinas?
Exhibit A: well, it just follows naturally from politics, don't you think?
Me: obviously a direct link between politics and obscure musical instruments.
Exhibit B: u like the band linking park?
Me: i do.
Exhibit B: there great live
Exhibit B: saw them with matalica and they took the consort
I rest my case.
