African Woman

Newly transferred from Atlanta, she was going from a North County restaurant to her motel. I flirted, "You didn't learn to talk like that in Atlanta."

"I'm from Nigeria."

We chatted, normally, I thought.

At the motel: "Why don't you come see me on Saturday. We could have a good time." She gave me the room and phone numbers.

Finally, a line I've never heard from an American woman: "I don't want to have to masturbate myself."

-- George Stair
