When A Date Turns Into Daycare

Talking about my worst first date in the last post has made me reminisce about all of the first dates I’ve been on. While none have been as memorable as the triple nipple debacle, another one does stand out in my mind quite loudly. It was 2007 and I was living in the Florida Keys,…
