First Date

Today I carefully prepared for a first date. 

I showered and shaved with extra care and smeared some deodorant in my pits. I thoroughly brushed my teeth with extra toothpaste. Hell, I even trimmed my nose hairs. 

I’ve been dressing much better than usual this past week to go to the SAP Open, but today I put even more effort into it. Like the newest pair of Dockers in my closet with my best belt and my finest LL Bean shirt, which I buttoned at the wrist (both buttons) and tucked in. 

I allowed double the estimated driving time, which was a good thing because there was enough traffic that the trip took longer than I’d estimated. I parked a block away and waited until two minutes before nine to pull up in front of her place. 

A lot of the things my parents tried to teach me just rolled right off my back, but I did for sure pick up on the importance of first impressions in establishing relationships. After all, I want Colleen to do my taxes for the rest of my life.
