"that's why you're broke"

While walking along 53rd street on my way home from skoolz I was approached by the most adorable little college student.  Note to all charitable organizations:  if you want me to stop for your worker and not pretend I can't hear them over my Ipod, have an attractive female do it.  Anywho, she stops me and we have this exact exchange word-for-word:

Adorable Charitable Worker:  Excuse me, do you like children?
Me:  No, not particularly.
Adorable Charitable Worker:  Well, do you have a big heart?
Me:  No, not particularly.
Adorable Charitable Worker:  Ok, would you like to sponsor a child who really needs you?
Me:  Sorry dear, I'm about as broke as that child.
Adorable Charitable Worker:  How can you be broke?  ::looks me up and down:: You don't look broke.  How old are you?
Me:  ::not wanting to be the broke 26 year old::  I'm 23.
Adorable Charitable Worker:  So why are you broke?  Are you a senior?
Me:  No, I'm a law student.
Adorable Charitable Worker:  Ohhhh, so you're smart...that's why you're broke.  Have a nice day. ::turns around and walks away::
So...what?  Is everybody in on the joke but us?

yea, cute people don't work for me either. pretty much anyone walking toward me will make me bolt in the opposite direction so that i don't get raped and end up on an episode of cold case.

sorry, my mom's a bit protective.
