Chatting Up


“I had to chat up girls, and I’d only tagged them before. I didn’t have the verbal power to be able to say; “Susan, I saw you in the classroom today. As the sun came from behind the clouds, a burst of brilliant light caught your hair, it was haloed in front of me. You turned, your eyes flashed fire into my soul, I immediately read the words of Dostoevsky and Karl Marx, and in the words of Albert Schweitzer; ‘I fancy you.'” But no! At 13, you’re just going, “‘Ello, Sue. I saw you in the room… I’ve got legs, have you? Oh yeah… Do you like bread? I’ve got a French loaf.””

– Eddie Izzard
