Glen and I were given front-row seats to a VERY obvious first date yesterday afternoon. It was almost laughable to observe. Topics covered included family locations, favorite music, and my personal favorite in the thought-provoking-question category, "What class do you want to take that you haven't?" (answer: "martial arts" -- he's a keeper, honey)
I tried to laugh discreetly with Glen once I discovered what was going on, and I sure hope I was successful. However, I'm pretty sure that the girl was so intent on asking question after question that she wasn't paying much attention to the couple at the other end of the table ("the couple" being us). If there was something to be improved upon, it was the fact that the guy was hardly asking her questions back. We considered slipping him a note with that suggestion for about two seconds, but we refrained. However, if he's hoping for continual dates with the same girl, he's going to have to ask questions about her.
Ah, the world of first dates ... I don't miss it.
(and now i wonder if anybody was observing glen and me ...)
Awkward first date? Maybe not.
