“do you want to have a boyfriend?”

I was walking back to my residence hall at school after making an emergency Kroger run and to get into my hall from Kroger, I have to cut through a corner in front of my campus bookstore where we get a ton of traffic and we had paid canvassers out collecting petition signatures for economic development in one of the poorest parts of Richmond. I signed the petition and then the guy collecting signatures asked me in a whisper (after we’d chatted for like a minute) if I had a boyfriend (no)  ..and then he asked me if I was interested in having a boyfriend (no on both accounts right now).. I think my non verbal “fuck off” slowly gave him the hint.[got_back]
