Best Date Ever

Recently I came across a book on how to be your own boyfriend. I didn't buy it, but it gave me an idea.

After work tonight I met myself for a cocktail.

I almost canceled, because by late this afternoon I started to feel that I hated my outfit, but nothing ventured is nothing gained. And you know, I'm really glad I went.

Today was payday, so I went ahead and bought the first round, and then I bought the second round, which I took as an encouraging sign.

Then I went to one of my favorite restaurants for dinner. I have really good taste in wine, which is a relief, because if I'd been a white wine drinker, that would have been a deal breaker. I paid for dinner because, well, to be honest, I was kind of hoping to guilt me into going home with me.

I have to say the dinner conversation was a bit awkward. I had to keep my voice down because I felt like people were staring at me. Why can't people just mind their own business?

After dinner I walked through Chelsea and browsed various boutiques for Christmas ornaments. I like that it didn't freak me out that I'm religious.

So then I asked if maybe...well, you know, I don't know, if I wasn't doing anything, maybe I'd like to come up to my place? As it so happened, I was going my way anyway, so I agreed.

I had a great time. I hadn't really been expecting company, but I very politely didn't mention the laundry on the floor or the sink full of dishes. As for the sex...well, a gentlman doesn't kiss and tell. But, I will say that I seemed to know exactly what I like.

I promised I'd come over tomorrow and help me with the laundry. I hope I'm not moving too fast.

I did that once. I liked the girl so much I ended up marrying her. Our fifth anniversary is coming up in February; we're pretty happy, all told, as long as I pay her enough attention and listen when she tells me to go to bed already. It's worked out well.

That's hilarious.

Awesome! You made me laugh today. I'm glad things worked out. Maybe you can take yourself home to meet the parents? They'll love you!

Your date sounds better than mine last night. Hmmm... maybe I should date myself before I try dating someone else.

If I don't head to the gym, asap, I'm getting a divorce.

You are such a funny guy. Nathan, I can assure you that Andy's parents will love whomever Andy brings home...

Andy said...

I'm not entirely sure you speak for Dad on that one...

Jean F. said...

Oh, I forgot about that dad...

This is the funniest thing you've written in a long time.

Are you two going to be monogamous?

Hysterical!

How do you decide which movie you want to watch. Do you like romance whereas you like comedy? Would you then settle on a romantic comedy?
