Just a friendly conversation

You know you really need to get out and find some sex.

Are you offering?

Shoot the idiot who thought that men and women could be friends. Can anyone tell me why the above conversation annoyed me? I know why….I’m mad at myself for imagining that I could have a civil, friendly conversation with a member of the opposite sex.

Maybe we just define the concept of ‘friendly conversation’ differently but I can’t imagine swearing at my close friends, calling them names, dredging up their love life mistakes, family histories and what not…..less still in a friendly conversation.

But shoot me, I’m an idiot too. I thought we lived on the same planet. And spoke the same language.
