    I love that song. Also, I SWEAR I once went to play “Suspicious Minds” on a jukebox – and I had to play the Yoakum cover version. I’m not even kidding.

    This reminds me so much of growing up in the country…

    Have you ever been to Bakersfield? God there is notttthhhiing in that town. And I live way too close to it. :P

  4. I wish my first dates were more like this…..

  5. A burger (no cheese) is the only proper thing to order at a diner. Every girl knows that.

    Maybe I just noticed this for the first time in your writing, but I like how we saw what the girl was thinking about the guy. Usually it’s only the other way around. Which is how I feel it is in real life, anyway.

  7. This would be the best first date ever.

    I’m a vegetarian and I’m with you- the tofu card is pushing it, especially on a first date. I always try to coast on the smitten on that issue.

    Peter, sometimes I think you’re hopeful enough to make up for the rest of us.

    But I’m with Angela on Bakersfield.

    I’m always warm and smitten when I hear someone else recognize how ATROCIOUS Nickelback is. ^_^
