I have being going on a cornucopia of first dates lately. Something I stress to these young men is creativity. This date blew my mind… He picked me up, and all he had in hand was a mysterious duffel bag. I was instantly excited. He opened my door for me, and the adventure began. He started to drive towards Brigham City, and then found the most random parking lot and pulled it. He handed me a glow stick and we began a hike in the dark into a forest…I may or may not have thought he was going to kill me and leave my body…To my relief, he had set up a picnic in the dark for us! He even provided me with my favorite thing meatball subs. It was a weird concept, but I appreciated not having to use my “manners,” I mean what was the point, he couldn’t see me. Once we had finished eating, he pulled out two white poster boards and a knife. At this point I thought where in the world could this go…It was magical, we cut open glow sticks and made “glow stick” art in this random forest. We had spread the dye everywhere, soon everything was glowing. We both ended up with glowing mustaches, and I accidentally got it in his eyes. Only someone of my caliber could make a boy tear up on a first date. After we had cleaned things up (as best we could), we got back in the car. He took me to the second destination where we had caramel apples and hot chocolate. I was so impressed with his creativity, it was another fun first date!
