I just returned from the strangest date I have ever had, and I have had some strange dates in my life. I met him on this site. I'll be nice and not reveal his profile name....
From his profile and our telephone conversations he seemed like a man that had his head on straight. He was cool, funny, intelligent, had goals and was passionate about them. He was into getting to know me on a friendship level before anything sexual commenced, which is something I appreciated.
He called earlier today, and suggested we go to dinner and get some drinks afterwards, and I said cool. His car was in the shop and he asked if I could come pick him up. I said no problem. He's a huge Patti Labelle fan, so I bought her Greatest Hits Cd for us to listen to during our drive, which he appreciated. Dinner and the conversation was great. He is, by the way, hotter than his profile pics: a tall dark skinned muscled man with a beautiful smile and a sexy bald head, and he felt the same about me. He suggested that I could stay over at the end of the evening if I wanted to. I didn't respond.
I was not prepared for what happened next:
He was tired of listening to Patti Labelle, so I turned the radio on to a couple R& B stations, but he pulled out of his jacket pocket a cd of GUESS WHAT?
*“Amazing Grace: All Time Bagpipe Favorites” , to listen to on the way to a dance club. That's right- scottish bagpipe music. He put the cd in and I was like WTF? I thought he was kidding, but he was serious. I asked why we were listening to this music, and he suddenly got upset and said he loved scottish bagbag pipe music. I was like, since when do Black people born and raised in Mississippi like bagpipe music! Keep in mind, we're on the interstate, when he asks me to pull over to the side of the road and let him out. I knew the date was over at that point, but I couldn't let him out on the highway, especially since his cell phone battery was dead. I asked if I could just drive him home WHEN HE PROCEEDS TO GRAB THE STEERING WHEEL SO I CAN CAUSE AN ACCIDENT! So I gave up and did as he wished. I pulled over to the side of the road and stopped so he could get out. Before he gets out, he sounds like he's about to cry as he tells me he doesn't understand why people don't appreciate bagpipe music anymore and he kept talking but all I heard after that was blah blah blah before he got out the car and I drove off. I didn't realize until a minute later that his cd was still playing. Then I hit the eject button and I threw it out the window on the highway like a frisbee.
WAS THAT NOT STRANGE, OR WHAT?
