Part iii- the date

I knock on the green door.  It opens to a beautiful red-headed vixen in a cute black coat and jeans.  (If I am being totally honest here, I have no idea what Wendy was actually wearing that night).

We drive to Hires Big H for dinner where we are going to meet up with about five other couples.  (For those of you not in the know, Hires Big H is a burger joint that is so good that I think they have all gone out of business, and so ritzy that nothing on the menu was probably more than $5) (only the best, my lady).

Dinner starts.  "Um, so, you are from Carlsbad?"

"Yes."  Uh-oh.

"So, what are you studying?"

"Psychology."

"Cool."  OH NO.

"So, you thought I was your friend David on the phone."

"Yes"  KILL. ME.

I have made a tactical error.

Then, my date does something that no date of mine has ever done.  She takes a napkin and starts ripping it into eighth inch strips.  They are perfect pieces.  As she tears the strips, she then arranges them into a nest.  A napkin nest.  I cannot avert my eyes from the process.  My brain is also unable to both watch and create conversation.  So for about five minutes I just stare.

When she finishes, I say something very clever.  Probably the thing that saved the date.

"Awesome."  You, sir, are a moron.

The date does not end there, though.  We play board games with my friends (party animal) and then go to my buddy's place to watch Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail.  I have never, in all of my attempts, managed to stay awake during this movie.  This is no exception.  For the first half of the movie, Wendy and I share a couch and in awkward silence while my friend and his girlfriend make out.  The second half is spent with me asleep.

I drop Wendy off and get a handshake.  But, really, I feel lucky not to get a punch.

To be continued....
