Day 47: I Get An Excellent Dating Tip

I got my hair cut today. I look better, to be honest. Less like Animal in the Muppets, and more like a lady who is human. My hairdresser, who I have mentioned before, is distinguished by being both a stand up comedian with a philosophy degree and a jolly good cutter of hair. We talked about various high-falutin' subjects, including Thom Yorke, the Raconteurs, de Sade and Balzac being short-arses along with Sartre, and how he liked Brick and I obviously didn't understand it because I thought it was shit.

He then told me that he went on a date with someone and that it was kind of OK. Then he said, "You're not going to believe this". I said, "What?" He told me that he shook her hand at the end of the date. Brilliant. You avoid, in a matter of seconds, having to tell someone you're not interested.

Lady: I went on a date last night.
Friend: How was it?
Lady: He shook my hand at the end.
Friend: Oh.

"I'm not taking this dating stuff very seriously", he said. "Why's that?", I said. "Well, I met this girl at the club the other night. I liked her friend more, but I asked her out because she was nearer. Anyway, I want to see her again just so I can walk her home so that when she says 'do you want to come in for coffee?', I can say, 'No, I don't like sex'".

I've got a bit of a crush on him, as it goes. Only a minor one. And it's not got much to do with the haircut, to be honest.
