What Was The Worst Date Of Your Life?




Hopefully, your worst date wasn't as bad as this image suggests... Although, it wouldn't surprise me if it was because I'll believe anything after what I've experienced...

Welcome to my eighteenth Tuesdays Question! I can't believe I've posted a Tuesday's Question for eighteen weeks in a row, with the exception of September 11th, a painful memory in the mind of my countrymen.

That being said, I would like to announce an idea I've been rolling around in my zany brain...for a celebration post in honor of Tuesday's Question, on or by my twenty first question.

Like maybe a contest... where I can actually give away a prize and brag badges to my readers with the most comments...and recognize those of you who have been so supportive over the last eighteen weeks, or I guess it will be the twentieth week by then...

In any event, it's not far away, and next week I'll have a better idea of where I'm going after brainstorming... I just wanted to put a bug in your ear... wait a minute...I don't mean an actual bug in your ear... yuck, that's a gross expression isn't it? Although, that would make a pretty good Tuesday's Question, "Have you ever had a bug in your ear?" Because, I actually did have a bug in my ear once ... you feel a soft buzzing vibration against your ear drum, ....oh come to think of it it's awful. It happened to me when I was a child...my mother poured alcohol in my ear and I guess it drown or something...

I'm sorry, I went off track, (maybe I've had too long a run with these questions) back to Tuesday's Question, which by the way I usually answer before requesting your comments. However, if you'll refer to my last post you'll read my explanation for running late, which is also the reason I 'll be post my answer along with your comments in tomorrows post.

I'm sorry for my rude temperamental computer, who had it's own plans this morning and forced me to post Tuesday's Question so late in the day.

I can't wait to read your comments in response to:

What Was The Worst Date Of Your Life?

Great question Ann. I've had my share of horrible dates. I did most of my dating in Alaska, where the "odds are good, but the goods are odd!" Some of the dates are too embarrasing to tell here. But my favorite all-time worst date story was a blind date. The guy picked me up, proceeded to interview me for marriage, then took me to dinner. Dinner consisted of chips n' salsa in his grungy car, in the parking lot of the bowling alley. After we ate, we went to the grocery store parking lot, where he drove like a madman all over the lot, crashing into stray carts. We never had a 2nd date.

Hi Ann Ouch that seens annoying a bee in your ear. I had a buzz but not a buzing bee in my ear. Anyway. A bad date he. I usually had good ones accept for one which I didn't plan. I went out with my girl friend a longer way from home than usual because she had find love in a timy village far away were they had one pub. These two hooked me up with his friend so they could have some time on their own. They left me with a dude who couldn't count till three and that night seems to never end. I could't get out because I came with her car. Man that night seems to never end. Of course I didn't go with them anymore.

Ann said...

OMG! I guess not! LOL You poor thing, but do not feel alone. And blind dates are the absolute worst. I don't know why we go on them. I mean, if someone needs to go on a blind date to begin with it ought to tell us something, right? But I can tell you are like me and don't want to hurt anyones feelings by offering a flat no, so you go anyway. Am I right? Only to end up miserable and asking yourself, "Why did I do this?" LOL

I love your saying btw, " odds are good, but the goods are odd!" that's great.

That's for a fantastic comment as usual Polli. :)

Hugs~

Ann said...

Marja,
Oh man, that sounds terrible Marja. What a awful friend to put you in that position. LOL And he couldn't count to three? That's even worse, I mean, it might not have been so bad if you could've at least had a decent conversation with the guy. I bet the night was long...

LOL! Oh, and it wasn't a bee in my ear, silly, it was a bug. LOL That really would have hurt! :))

Thanks Marja, Hugs~

Dawn said...

Hey I had a bug in my ear too! I was 6 years old.... As for the worst date... I can't think of anything too horrible... I must have dated mostly nice guys ;))) If anything comes to mind I'll drop back!

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

Well, I can't recall a horrible date. Some have been blah, but none that I would classify in the "worst" catagory. I've been pretty lucky with this one. So, I'm a bomb for this weeks question.

Ann said...

Dawn, You too? Kristofferson and bugs, we just have too much in common! LOL Although, I believe I'll take Kris over the bug any day, as I'm sure you would too. A bug in your ear when your a child is pretty horrifying isn't it? You see, I knew I should have asked that question. LOL Thanks for commenting Dawn. Between you and Sandee, I don't think I'm gonna have to count my most loyal Tuesday commenters. LOL

Have a great week~

Ann

Ann said...

Yep, I should have have asked if anyone had ever had a bug in their ear. LOL The fact that you took the time to leave a comment after already stopping by means...it just means...I haven't the words...thanks for being you! :))

Hugs~ Ann

No bugs in my ear but I had a bee fly inside my helmet while riding a motorcycle once....talk about panic stations....:):)..worst date with a cheerleader in highschool..the local hottie..while escorting her to my old pickup which was parked in an icy parking lot..being a gentleman I opened her door as she stepped in I lost my footing and shot between her legs under the truck and out the otherside..I think she peed herself laughing...we have a school reunion in January..I wonder if she still remembers...needless to say i was the talk of the social circles for a week or two...:)

Ann said...

Robert, (Laughter) I could see you sliding under her and the truck in my minds eye while as I was reading your comment. LOL Sorry to laugh, but it is hilarious and I doubt she's forgotten about it either. (LOL) Good luck at the reunion.

I couldn't believe the bee in your helmet either. LOL How did you keep from running off the road? You're right, thank God for panic stations.

It's too bad there aren't any panic stations to call when you're on a bad date huh? LOL


Thanks for the hilarious comments~

I once went out w my crush, and was accompanied by my friends along with hers. We were both so embarrassed, we started spluttering and stammering like a broken, wheezing engine! Hehe... We left each other soon afterwards.

We were both tongue-tied, embarrassed and LOL-ing in our minds, it was an incredibly stupid and funny moment..Hehe.

Christy said...

My brother had a fly in his ear once and it almost drove him insane, he had to go to the hospital to get it out...yikes.

The absolute worst date I was ever on was one with this guy friend...we had a crush on each other for 2 and half years and then we go on this date and it was so awkward. His moves were so weird I couldn't figure them out, lol. I felt like just screaming kiss me and get over with!! After years of flirting it was impossible to actually connect beyond the friendship level, I never spoke to him after that, it was kind of sad.

Great question as always Ann, Hugs:)

Motherhood- Courage


Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons

Words-

Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination

F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.
