Janine to Jon on that First Night

JANINE TO JON ON THAT FIRST NIGHT

Oh, that’s sad.
All you could come up with was that?
That was your finest line?
REALLY?
Man, you’ve been working this corner
staring at me
for what seems like forever,
and this is the best you van come up with?
Oi…

Really
I think you can improve
upon that shoddy performance
and
for the betterment of all society
really wish you would.

I’m sorry;
you’ll just have to do better than that.
I refuse to go home
with someone
with such lousy pick-up skills
and I’d already decided
I was going home with you
so, I’m afraid,
we’re going to have to keep at it
until you improve
(the same may apply
to later activities
as well)

So
I insist
come at me
with something better.
I can wait.
