Mr. Fall Asleep on My Lap Why Don't You?

Once I got set up on a date with this attorney.  Naturally I was excited to go out with someone that I could have intelligent conversation with and hopefully hear about some really cool cases.  We talked on the phone and everything seemed promising.  I was having a dinner party that night and invited him over for the festivities.  He asked what he could bring and I asked him to bring a pie.  He showed up with cornbread.  Which he fed to me like a baby all night.  I thought my stomach was going to burst and I was so annoyed at the baby voices and feeding, but in order to save my new guest from embarrassment, I held my tongue.

In true "Finding Mr. Wrong Fashion" I went on another date which I thought might be painful but I went anyway.  We went to dinner and a movie.  I dressed up and he picked me up wearing short workout shorts.  So that was weird.  Then we went to the movies.  I can't remember what we watched but I do remember that it seemed like 3 or 4 hours long.  That was probably because in the first 30 minutes he lifted up the arm chair between us, moved my hands that were in my lap, laid down, and fell asleep!  I didn't know where to put my hands as I didn't want to rest them on his shoulder so I put them uncomfortably behind my head for the rest of the movie.

The best part was when he started snoring loudly for all to hear - oh and that was snoring into my lap...

Erin,
Must say that it looks like you have a handful of good stories...thanks for not letting them go to waste and sharing them :) We haven't seen you in a long time, you'll have to let us know when you are up in Utah again...sounds like you are pretty busy these days.
