So after I was unceremoniously dropped from SP:CT for the umpteenth time tonight, I walked over to the laundry room to drop off some whites when I noticed through the open window shades that the hot girl who lives two apartments down from me was playing Civ 2. No need to explicitly describe my shock, right?
I immediately went and got two beers out of the fridge and knocked on her door. After the introductions, she motioned towards her PC and said, "I'm just wasting time."
I replied, "Is that Civilization 2?"
"You have no idea how many points you just scored with me," she said.
We drank the beers and talked for an hour before we made a lunch date and I walked back to my place. This is the start of something beautiful.
