My roommate, Caroline, and I were excited. Our other third, Lindsey, had been asked out on a date by a guy she was digging. We were friends with the guy and trying to come up with some fun date ideas! You know, go to the park, go to the zoo, yadee yadee. Then, Caroline procedes with the most original date idea ever. She said, "Oh, I read this on the internet! (?) Go to KFC and get a bucket of chicken and a side of mashed potatoes. Then go to a park and sit at a picnic table and eat the chicken & then use the bones to reconstruct a model chicken using mashed potatoes as an adhesive!"
Silent stares of shock.
"What? I read it on the internet!"
Now, Caroline could never clarify where she "read this on the internet," nor could we ever convince her to attempt this on a date with a boy. She never lived it down, bless her heart.
Anywhoos, what are good date ideas? Adam and I have had some fun ones. We used to love geocaching on the weekends. ( www.geocaching.com) In Waco, we used to go "tortilla tossing". Basically, you'd go to the grocery store and buy a 100 or 200 pack of tortillas. (Oh, yes- they exist in Texas!) Then you would go to the suspension bridge over the Brazos River. 50 yards or so away from the bridge were some concrete pegs that used to support another bridge(?) -not sure about that one. Nonetheless, you would take a tortilla and throw it like a frisbee; hoping to land it on a peg. Most times you would fail and it would land in the water and the ducks would swim up and eat them like it was going out of style. They were fat ducks.
I feel like I've told about tortilla tossing on the blog before. Sorry, if I have. Adam was really pretty good at tortilla tossing. He would land like 23 out of 100. I would land like 3 or 4 out of 100, sadly. Oh, well- even if you miss, you're still contributing to duck obesity.
Got any good date ideas?
