Again not gonna give real names, but we can call him Nurse since that is his occupation. You know, I fear more and more that I am morphing into Karen Walker from Will & Grace with her constant references to Driver and Pharmacist (and Back-Up Pharmacist)...
Anyway...we had dinner (after two aborted attempts due to places being closed for the Fourth or just not found) and had some great conversations sprinkled with gentle teasing. My favorite (although for some it's not so funny) was his response to my question as to why he shouldn't have his watermelon margarita -- “Well I haven't had a drink in a long time...”
“Why?” I asked.
“We'll I'm an alcoholic.”
As I was digesting that tidbit of information and wondering what if anything I was going to say, Nurse smiled and said, “I'm joking! And to think you were going to let me drink alcohol after saying that...”
Like I also said, we went to see Crash which again I can't urge you enough to go see. We both got caught up in the same parts and figured out a few of the twists (although not the twists to some of the twists) and both agreed that we HAD to get it on DVD and pray that there will be an extended director's cut.
After the movie he got invited down by friends to a bar where Latin porn stars were having a wet underwear contest. Sadly as I had to be at work at the crack of ass I had to decline the invite...
All in all not a bad date and a good time was had by all but I'm not gonna wait for the cell phone to ring and have it be him. I am, after all, still a little cynical.
