From THE GUYS
Before we get to the topic at hand, we’d like to thank
AskCherlock and One Crazy Brunette Chick for sending us such great pictures of themselves wearing THE GUYS. If you haven’t visited them at their sites, you absolutely should. Great stuff!
So let’s get to today’s topic.
We’ve had some fierce debate about this. Read the excerpt below and please give us your opinion. We need help figuring this out!!!
Transcribed from a conversation with a friend, who is talking about her first date.
(GP = Guy’s Perspective)
Friend: I got set up on a blind date recently.
GP: Oh really! How was it?
Friend: It was OK.
GP: Just OK? …..what, you weren’t attracted to him?
Friend: He was decent looking.
GP: Hmm……..are you going to go out with him again?
Friend: Yeah, you know me. I’m willing to give people a second chance, but I’m not sure if I should.
GP: Well let’s get the blow by blow…..(You know what we mean!)
Friend: OK, so tell me what you think….(Pause. Takes a breath and starts giving a quick summary of the date) So we’re having breakfast. The conversation was OK, but kind of stiff. It didn’t seem like we had much in common, but he was reasonably cool. Well, that is, until we were about to leave.
GP: What happened?
Friend: So we’re getting ready to leave and he says, “Can I get this to go?”
GP: OK? And?
Friend: It was French Toast for god’s sake! One piece of freakin’ French Toast!!!!
(She laughs out loud)
GP: (After Pause) So that’s a bit odd. But are you saying that’s a deal breaker?
Friend: Pretty much. Shouldn’t it be?
GP: Hmm. Should it be? Maybe. Probably. Not sure.
Friend: I don’t know either. Something just seems wrong about it. Of course Alison(her daughter) thinks I’m being absolutely ridiculous. She was yelling at me over the phone and lecturing me about how I’m too picky.
GP: OK, so let’s look at this. Thinking about it from a very practical standpoint it doesn’t seem so bad. But giving it more thought, it’s just plain odd. What guy in their right mind asks to take home one piece of French Toast on a first date??!! That’s the problem. If he doesn’t understand that it COULD be interpreted as strange, then what the hell else doesn’t he get?
Friend: It “weirds” me out for some reason, but I am going to go out with him again.
GP: Good luck with that.
So what do you think dear readers? Is “French Toast To Go” a deal breaker on the first date?
ps. The second date was a total flop. Can anyone say, “Eggs to go.”
