While out on his lunch hour, Hobbes came across a newcomer to the area.
While I found her to be quite lovely and hoped to get to know her better, he was standoffish.
I think her long legs, perfectly placed feathers and beautiful blue head intimidated him.
"She's not all that pretty, I've seen prettier."
"Besides, girls like guys who play it cool. You watch, she'll be back by here looking for me tomorrow."
I think his too-cool-for-school attitude backfired.
She hasn't come by here again.
He missed his chance.
