My Very Worst Date was our FIRST date on Valentines Day.
‘Mr. Jones’ took me to this FABULOUS and very expensive restaurant. HOWEVER, he neglected one not so small detail…to make RESERVATIONS! DUH! Who doesn’t make reservations for Valentines Day?
So we decided to wait for a table and sat in the bar for several hours, at which time I consumed mass amount of red wine on an empty stomach.
Finally we were seated for dinner. I ordered filet mignon, he ordered steak and lobster. The food arrived just in time for me to go running to the bathroom – where I spent the next hour hugging not my date, but the commode on the floor, in my sexy little red dress that I bought just for Valentines day (nice).
When I finally could stand up, I walked out to find Mr. Jones getting ready to come into the ladies room to check on me. So, we ran out to the car trying to get me home before I hurled AGAIN…
No such luck! (You guessed it, red – and it does not go well with gray floor mats!)
In the rush to get me home, not only did he drive like a maniac but ran a red light – and THEN, in a moment of clarity, remembered that we ran out without paying the bill. Now not only was I sicker than a dog, but a possible criminal as well!
So what else could go wrong? …well helloooo, Officer! You got it – red flashing lights, pulling us over. I didn’t know if it was running the red light or running out on the bill. It was the red light. So while Mr. Jones waited for his citation, I leaned out the car door and puked AGAIN in front of the officer.
Finally Mr. Jones got me home, tucked me in, and RAN! (kidding)
But I think it was after 4:00 PM that I got up the next day and threw out my sexy little red dress. Mr. Jones went back to the restaurant to apologize and pay our bill.
Needless to say, that was our LAST Valentines “date.” We continued to date, but NEVER went out on Valentines Day. We got married and will celebrate our 28th Anniversary this June. But I still am not a fan of Valentines day or the color RED!
