Ego Elevator

Stop by for a six-pack of beer
‘Hello!’ Smiles the pretty cashier
‘May I see your ID?
(Are you KIDDING me?
You just made my day AND my year!)

‘Store policy’ She says with a blush
(Is she FLIRTING? Does she have a crush?)
Intuition grows crisper
When I hear a soft whisper
‘Anyway, are you in a big rush?’

    I love this, Tim!!! You have got to be one of the most creative poets on here. Your humour and attention to detail get me everytime. I went to the liquor store the other day with a few friends - I didn't even buy anything and I was still carded! And in Canada the legal drinking age is 19. Sheesh.
