...said the pretty girl.
I had passed her moments earlier while walking last night and assumed her she was fetching, but this became a self evident truth as she ran up and stopped me with the aforementioned remark.
A request for directions might be the best guess for the question that followed (esp. given the accent [bordering on French]), but since I was walking over the East River at the time, only two practical directions existed. Or perhaps the time?
I did not expect the question to be:
Are you a math teacher?
Fool that I am, I honestly answered that I was not, though I have taught a Computer Science intro course.
Something to the effect of "Oh, okay" followed at the response, and we went on our merry ways.
Anyway, I'd totally forget about this but for the fact that we have more than a few punny folks and/or limerick-inclined posters here, and I'm curious if anyone has a better response.
I consider the likelihood of such a question in the future to be near nil, although I previously never expected such a question, so I guess the probability is greater than I imagined it to be.

"Not really, but I'd love to talk about it with you over a piece of Pi."

Perhaps she is in need of a Math tutor?

I never quite understood the difference between flirtatious and sleazy, so I'd probably have gone for something like...
(poor attempt at charming smile) Honey, for you I could be...

That's because the line is drawn by the other person and everyone draws it in a different spot. Unless you can read minds, you'll never really know where the line is for anyone else.

/me goes with Snaggy's line.
TFD: Sorry, but that's pushing it in my book...
It's probably also worth noting that she was walking with some guy - either brother or lame as hell boyfriend. Ergo, this was more a novelty than anything. Still, as I drew a complete blank, I figured I'd ask some folks cleverer than myself for ideas.

I, for one, never seem to have a witty response in that sort of situation. The witty response hits me several hours later.
