Wisecracks Ain't Always Wise

Way back in 1998 (I think), was out on a date watching some atrocious Hindi movie. Early into the movie I had pronounced my verdict, both, on the movie as well as my female companion, coz she just wasn't the type to keep a conversation going. So I decided to catch up on the proverbial forty winks. Just as my dreams of what-could-have-been were reaching its climax (pun intended), I was rudely awakened.

She: Why are you sleeping?!
A question, which when put down on paper results in an Interrobang at the end of it. For the mentally challenged, asking something out of incredulity.

Me: So that I can boast, I slept with you.

A smart-ass kick-ass reply. Of all the one-liners that I come up with from time to time, this has been by far the best. I'm still proud of this spur-of-the-moment-without-batting-an-eyelid comment.

Needless to say, the humour was all lost and that was the last I heard from her. In fact, last heard, she was happily married and (I presume) SLEEPING with her husband. Talk of Irony....

@ Surya - Yeah Yeah. I know. Pretty dumb, I have to admit. I mean this comment was in the league of those famous "How do you like your eggs? Boiled, Scrambled or Fertilised?" and "I've never been turned down. I only get turned on". I guess in the company of dumbos, we have to act a bit dumb ourselves. Anywhichways....
