Our Shopping Trip

February 8th, 2012 by Sadie (Atlanta, Georgia)

When I was seventeen, I went on my very first date. A little late, I know, but it was finally happening and I was excited. I spent hours getting ready and giving myself little pep talks, stuff like, “He’s gonna love this sweater, you’re funny and smart and this date will be perfect!” We ended up going to a movie theater, but the movie we’d wanted to see wasn’t playing. So we left there and drove around a bit before he decided that we should go to the grocery store. Not as a cute “let’s go shopping together!” thing, but as a “well, I need to pick up some toilet paper and toothpaste” thing. We walked around the store, he picked up the things that he needed, and we left. The whole time we were at the store and in the car, maybe three words were said by each of us. I’ve never felt so completely awkward in my life!
