Our winner is Kate who told this fantastic bad date story:
Awful date story: When I was in HS, my Mom set me up on a blind date with her co-worker’s son. We spent the day hanging out at the mall. It was so awkward (he wouldn’t talk to me!) that I called my Mom from the bathroom and begged her to come join us for dinner. She did, along with my brother and sister. She kept trying to find some sort of common ground to get him to talk – she brought up baseball knowing he played. My brother then made some snide comment about switch hitters and my date announced, “I’m a switch hitter!” I swear it was the only full sentence he said all day. My brother almost died laughing. I just wanted to crawl under the table.
