In contrast to the generalities of some of the previous callers, Greg was brief and to the point in his specifics.

All Greg gave me in addition to his phone number was his shared or counter points to to my artistic faves. He also liked James Joyce, Wings of Desire, and Apocalypse Now. Greg added the Grateful Dead and Tears For Fears to the music category. As long as he wasn’t looking for a fellow Dead-Head, we were still good. I went to a Grateful Dead concert once and and a gentleman wearing overalls with one broken strap and no shirt inquired as to whether or not my roommates had any “spare womans.” The charm of that experience aside, I’m not really into jam bands though the 20 minute drum solo was an interesting highlight.

Greg added a few more authors and said that he enjoyed disparate films ranging from Casablanca to Blue Velvet. Certainly Greg was my type in the brains and interests department. This was better than the vague flattery other callers offered. But still it wasn’t enough to get a call back. I need a bit more of surrounding fluff. Not a lot but some. I hope somewhere out there Greg is living happily ever after with the Dead Head girl of his dreams.
