Closest I’ve come to chatting anybody up in ages

This evening, while out and about in town, I said to my friend Nod “do you want to come back to mine?”. Unfortunately when I turned to face him I found he’d wandered off and I was instead talking to Random Woman. I thought this was quite funny, and apologised. I’m not sure she was so amused, but said “don’t worry, I do it all the time – it’s very embarrassing”. I wonder whether she meant accidentally using bad pick-up lines on strangers. It didn’t work.
