Strange Happenings at the Pub

I hit the pub (the Half Door) for a pint tonight, just because. The place was more empty than not and all of the pub staff who weren't working that night were hanging out there. In an odd twist, one of the waitresses working tonight approached me (as I sat by myself) and struck up some brief conversation. The first time I was a bit surprised and not a little tongue-tied. The second time I was more prepared. But it struck me as ever so odd. I've been going to this pub for over 2 years and that's the first time a woman, let alone a waitress, let alone one of the blonde, good-looking waitresses, has struck up a brief conversation with me. Quite strange. I think I'm a little disconcerted.
