It was the best first date I’ve ever been on. We had enjoyed a wonderful dinner and a couple whiskey drinks during a show. Now we found ourselves standing on Melrose with our arms wrapped around each other waiting for the valet to bring our cars around. That’s when she said it… “You look so seattle but feel so LA.”
I had to pause… I’ve heard that somewhere before. Oh yeah… “did you just use a Fall Out Boy lyric on me?”
She looked shocked… “uh… yeah… it kind of just fell out of my mouth.” She was embarrassed. “I mean you do though… you look hardcore 90s grunge but have an LA hard body.”
I giggled… “I’m still mourning the loss of Kurt.” I said giving her a light kiss. “You’re adorable.”
Honestly I didn’t know what to think. She was dressed to the nines in heels, sexy black dress, and full beat hair and makeup. I wasn’t expecting her to drop a Fall out Boy lyric in my lap. Yet it was comforting. She spoke my language of music lyrics. That’s rare to find in 30 something feminine form.
The valet pulled up with her white Mercedes… it was time to move on.
We have since had many conversations using only song lyrics… and I’m still not sure how I feel about it. I did agree to a second date though.
