Same Pinch

Boy_or_girl_2

I take the company bus to work every day. Well every day that I wake up on time that is; otherwise I have to request one of the senior managers who live around to give me a lift in their car to which they comply. My stop is at a Domino’s near my house where I catch the bus from. The other day I got up particularly early and instead of spending time in the bath tub or sleeping I got ready, made myself some green tea and left early so that I could wait at the stop and catch a read.

So there was a group of kids nearby standing outside their school (on the way to my stop) and since I didn’t have my ear phones on as I usually do I could hear what they were talking as I passed. One of them ended up doing a ‘same pinch’ to the other. To those of you unaware of it, this is what you do when someone has something same as you do or does something same. Should you call dibs on it, you can pinch the other person and say ‘Same pinch’. Kids in my time used to do that often. I was in one of my better moods and the following conversation came to my mind and I thought that I should you know, give it a shot.

Me: Hi, How are you?

She: Fine, you?

Me: So far so good. Do you have a boyfriend?

She: Umm…. No, why do you ask?

Me: Neither do I… Same Pinch (in a voice of glee)

She: Now I have spoken of this to only two of my female friends, both on chat, and they both LOLed at it. This could be however for the fact that we were on chat, and they were probably staring at the screen with a wonder as to why they haven’t gone offline or invisible yet. Or maybe they just share my sense of humor. I gather it’s that and that in person they wouldn’t beat the crap out of me.

On the way to work in the bus, I could think of two other ways how this conversation could lead to

Me: Do you have a boyfriend?

She: No, why do you ask?

Me: Neither do I… Same Pinch (in a voice of glee)

She: Ah… Do you have a girl friend?

Me: No, Same pinch?

She: No, but now you know why you don’t

And the other one:

Me: Do you have a boyfriend?

She: Umm…. No, why do you ask?

Me: Neither do I… Same Pinch (in a voice of glee)

She: … Do you have a girl friend?

Me: No

Together: SAME PINCH
