What’s Your Sign, Baby? by Amy Andrews
Hello everyone and welcome to my first blog as a debut Presents author – I have appeared here before a few years ago when one of my medicals (The Italian Count’s Baby) was released in the US as a Presents Extra. Yes, until last year I wrote exclusively for the HMB medical line but am very proud and excited to see my PE Innocent “til Proven Otherwise releasing in the states this month. This is being followed by a January US release next year of The Devil and the Deep (aka my pirate book)
The opening scene for ITPO has been with me for a long time. I actually cut it from another book but couldn’t bear to part with it thinking/hoping I could use it one day – and what do you know? It’s a bar pick up scene involving two people who are not in the mood to be set up, being set up by their best friends. I loved writing this scene – even a couple of years down the track it still made me smile.
And it got me to thinking about pick-up lines. I”m a girl who married her high school boyfriend so I can’t say that I’ve been subjected to too many pick-up lines but I do love them. There’s something so hopeful about them – even the corny ones. I think it takes an enormous amount of courage for a guy to go up to a girl and ask her out so I say bravo to them!
With such limited personal experience, I turned to the great god Google to find a few pick-up lines to share with you – the cute, the cheeky and the desperate.
Your eyes are bluer than the Atlantic Ocean and baby I”m lost at sea!
If you were a burger at McDonald”s you”d be the McGorgeous.
I must be a snowflake, because I”ve fallen for you.
You’re so beautiful you made me forget my pick up line.
Hi, I’m Mr. Right–I heard you were looking for me.
If you were a laser you would be set to stunning.
People call me John, but you can call me Tonight!
Do I know you? Cause you look a lot like my next girlfriend.
Are those space pants?
Because your ass is out of this world!
Let”s have breakfast together tomorrow. Shall I call you or nudge you?
If a fat man puts you in a bag at night, don”t worry–I told Santa I wanted you for Christmas.
I can”t think of anyone else I”d rather survive a Zombie Apocalypse with.
Here”s $10. Drink until I am really good looking, then come and talk to me.
I”m going outside to make out… care to join me?
Heard any good pick-up lines lately?
