Redid the index page for In Other Words… to be script generated. Previously, I’d have to edit the index file to add a new story. Now, the script reads the story descriptions from the file itself which means I only have to copy the story file to the directory and make sure graphics are in place. Less prep-work will hopefully mean new stories come on-line more frequently.

She was sitting alone at the bar and had been for nearly twenty minutes. I sat down next to her and asked, “What’s the worst pickup line a guy has ever tried?”

“Excuse me?”

Thinking I had just made a complete fool out of myself, I blushed and repeated the question.

With a mischievous grin she replied, “Why? Are you trying to pick me up?”

“Maybe. It would depend upon whether you shoot me down or not.”

After a long pause she said, “What’s your sign?” She saw my confused look and continued, “That’s the worst one. Or maybe the one you just tried. I’m not sure.”

“It can’t be.”

“Why is that?”

“Because it seems to have worked. Would you care to grab a table?”
