Spotted: Line Cutter

I was out at a political happy hour Friday night when this lovely lady next to me was ever so discretely trying to cut ahead of me and get a drink. While obviously blocking her way, we struck up a conversation:

Me: How's it going.
Her: Great, my name's _____ what do you do?
Me: Like most people in the room, a non profit. You?
Her: Well I used to work in foreign policy. Now I work for the [southern state] delegation.
Me: So you're an intern.
Her: (long pause) Yes.
Me: Ever heard of dcinterns.blogspot?
Her: Nope, why?
Me: This convo is going up on there.

I forgot how much I missed interns.
