Oh man that sucks.. Also, drinking already this early?

I could get up and stand next to her but that's awkward. And the convo was still at the intro stage not fully developed so would be weird to be like oh let's go sit at a two person table

But I will persevere and keep thinking of ways to continue the convo

Well, grow a pair and move next to the cute one. Duh
