So What Pickup Line Would Work on You Right Now?

I forgot to wear my wedding ring to the bus stop. All that spring cleaning today made me keep the ring safe in my jewelry box. I joked with my fellow bus stop moms, "Imagine if we had to go out on the dating scene again. Wouldn't that be enlightening?" So that's the inspiration for this attempt at a funny post. Hopefully, some of these will make you chuckle.

Here are some pickup lines that may work on me at this point in my life (41 and tired most of the time :)
  • "I'll let you sleep."
  • "Hugh Jackman is my cousin." Even if there was a remote chance to meet Hugh, I would be tempted.
  • "Here's a picture of my villa in Tuscany." Remember that Diane Lane movie, The Tuscan Sun? Check me out thinking that I'm in Diane Lane's league. Hey, this is fantasy!
  • "I have a chocolate shop." Maybe he needs a counter girl? Just think of all that chocolate on hand. (I'm really improvising here as I type. Am I making any sense? Can you tell that I'm wiped out today?)
  • "I'd like to hear your point of view." A man who wants me to talk? That is tempting.
  • "Parlez-vous francais?" The accent gets me every time.
  • "You never have to do laundry again." Now I know many of you would take a minute to consider that one.
Well, that's all I got. I have to get the boys to soccer practice. The 4th grade revolutionary encampment went well. I was the official water girl. I kept all those troops hydrated on that warm May day. See how I'm a serving girl everywhere I go :) I have to say that those sharp dressed regiments proudly served their tour of duty. It was sweet to see their excitement and curiosity about that time period in our country's history.

See you all soon!

Those are awesome pick up lines! Glad the reenactment went well. Sounds like a lot of fun, actually.

Have a great weekend. Sunday Citar?

Randi said...

"You'll never have to move again. And did I mention I own a major appliance store?" Yeah.That one would work in a heartbeat. No moving. Washers and dryers that work. :)

Coming of age rage is page of paypa
AND Will's luck of buck nip tuck
Is deserved ruck 2 book of Dog And bone
All alone groan of 4T sown known!

Compassion AND comfort and consoling is Abliging singing from on high of sigh sly to common law wife to eliviate strife of life in tear sneer of fear adhere!

You are all very understanding And will know grow of sown seed need heed! Love love ANDyou ALL!

Joanne said...

How about, "I'll cook dinner. AND grocery shop." I'd be smitten.

Diane said...

Funny!!! I would probably roll my eyes at most of them, knowing there is no way they would be true ever ever ever! :O)

Mandy's Life After 30 said...

Kelly, I loved these! Especially the Hugh Jackman one and the "I'd like to hear your point of view" one. :-)

Some ones that would cause me to think about leaving my husband are:

--"I own a McDonald's store and you can have endless supplies of frappes." ;-)

--"I write poetry and love reading classics out loud to the one I love."

--"Oh hi, I thought you were Heidi Klum."

--"I do dishes, windows, toilets and I'm not gay."

Trudy said...

Oh, I would totally fall for the chocolate one!

WELCOME TO MY WORLD OF POETRY: said...

There are some very good pick up lines there.

Enjoy your week-end.

Valerie said...

Maybe, just maybe, the laundry one would tempt me. But as I'm a cynical old thing I never trust the motives.... grins. Have a great weekend.

Owning the Words said...

At this point in time, any one will do but I would like the "I'll let you sleep." or "Let me cook from now on" or even "Go out, have fun, I'll watch the kids. Here, take $500."

Have a lovely weekend :)

G said...

Great pickup lines.

Wonder what kind of lines I would get in this day and age if I had my wedding band off? :D

Oh well, the joys of being bald and middle aged.

Hope your weekend is a sensational one.

kisatrtle said...

sleeping in...that is a good one. I also like here is my credit card. I'll keep the kids for the day.

Jenna said...

LOVE this post... Sadly, I am out in the world of the single and dating... and here are a few that I would love... (keep in mind I live in a weird place)...

**I have no idea what Area 51 is... and I will not be taking you to a meeting for the abducted for our first date....

**I read and not just the label on the beer can.

**I don't have a criminal record, nor do many of friends.

It's sad out there ladies. Be glad for what you have! =)

Teresha@Marlie and Me said...

Those are good ones. I might leave my husbands if another man offered me a lifetime supply of cupcakes :-)

Vicky said...

You are so clever!! How hysterical! The sleeping in one would be heavenly, I'd start there :) I cooked dinner would be another one...

rachel... said...

How about "Here, let me take the baby. You go back to bed..."

Or "Put that sweeper away, let me get that for you. You go read those little blogs you love..."

And WTH is up with 'WordsPoeticallyWorth'??? :/

From the other side:

I'll mow the lawn for you.
I'll keep you in the style you desire.
Thinning and gray hair is so sexy.
