Blonde moment (North Vancouver version)
[To understand this story you must understand that North Vancouver (as which much of Greater Vancouver) is based on a grid system with avenues going north-south, streets numbered from the shore (at Lonsdale Quay) and the numbers of the streets increasing the further north you go up the main avenue (Lonsdale Avenue)]
We were going home from a night downtown and got on the 229 that goes up Lonsdale Avenue at Lonsdale Quay and a rather tipsy blonde girl and her giggly friend sat down near us. She spotted a good-looking guy nearby on the bus and began flirting with him:
Blonde: *giggles* Oh, er, can you help us. My friend and I are going to a party and we don’t know how far it is…
Guy: Where’s the party?
Blonde: *giggles* Errrr….corner of Lonsdale and 23rd Street
Guy (obviously unimpressed): About 23 blocks….
Blonde: Oh, right….
