I had a girl ask me out through Facebook. She was my residence counselor in college. She asked me out a year after that. We ended up seeing each other for a few months, but she was a crazy sorority girl. We barely knew each other. I call it the longest first date I’ve ever had. This was at the University of British Columbia.

Yeah, when I was at the Worldfest, or whatever that’s called, in Vancouver. It was in 1986, and I was in the Navy. I was standing at a bar in my uniform, and she put her hands on my chest and said, “We’re dancing now.” She pushed me out onto the dance floor, and I stayed with her for the next three days. God bless the Canadians.

Well, there’s a difference between women hitting on you and asking you out. If you’re asking if I’ve ever asked out a guy, well…believe it or not, I am shy and very traditional. I think if someone is really interested in me, they should approach me and ask. People have told me it’s acceptable for the woman to ask out the man, and some men like it. I could never muster up the courage. I think women that ask men out seem aggressive and probably wear the pants in the relationship. I believe in equal rights, but I didn’t fight for them. I appreciate everyone who did, so don’t get me wrong. But when I grow up, I wanna be a housewife.

Yeah, back in high school. It was to the Sadie Hawkins dance. I went and we had fun and ended up dating for a little while. That was at Mira Mesa High School. I was a senior and she was a junior.

It’s a hard story to follow, but back in high school, the girlfriend of a friend of mine asked me out. She did that by putting it in a secret code in the yearbook. I never went out with her, but his best friend started seeing her on the side. That went on for three years, while she was still dating the other guy. The guy never found out and ended up marrying her. They’re still married.

It was on America Online. We started messaging. I never saw a photo of her, but she said she had a pretty face but needed to lose a few pounds. On blind dates, I always have an out. And when I saw her, I thought she was ghastly looking. She looked like that Wilson sister before the gastric-bypass surgery. We were on the I-5 near Ardath and I told her I was sick and that she needed to pull over. She pulled off the road, and I pretended to barf in the pickle weed. Since they were damp, I wiped my face to make it look all sweaty.

Josh the picture you put up there of Albert Wang is NOT Albert Wang! That's another guy named Bill from the party!! We all got quite the laugh out of though!! Hey when's the story on the Sushi party??

To surfrider dude: What's wrong with wanting to be a housewife?? That's hard work man, all those bon bons to eat, gyms to work out in, martini's to shake, gourmet meals to cook, gardens, errands, book keeping.... I'd love to be waiting by the door martini in hand, gourmet meal on the table for my sexy breadwinner! Hell I'm traditional too! I wanna be Donna Reed dammit!

That's not Albert Wang? Weird. The only other picture of a person from that sushi party is of Colleen, so...I'm not sure what happened. Maybe I didn't take a picture of Wang (hey, that sounds funny).

Oh-but wait - she said she wanted to be a "hosuewife", not a stay at home Mommy.

Two different animals there.

And being a full time Mom is a great gig, and lots of hard work-but how many single Mom's are there who do BOTH-work and provide for the family? Those are the ones who work hardest-by far.

Ahem, Surfrider: I raised my kid, single for 19 years, and worked full time, so suck it! I am no sue happy ho, apparently you have had "experience' in that area.

Josh that is Billy
