  1. This is a DATE FROM HELL! What an awful night, I agree but if ever you are on a late night talk show and they ask “What was the Worst Date?” You would win hands down! I’m sorry, this is just so funny, I can’t stop laughing at it. Was his name Bill? I can see Uma Thurman going after him then (“Kill Bill”). This is so good! Thanks, Nan ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I managed not to set me or anyone else on fire, but I did think I was going to be drinking melted plastic as I stuck the straw in and sucked the drink down (thankfully did not happen).

  2. Too funny! And as if it wasn’t bad enough going on a date with this guy, after he ruins your nice outfit, he leaves you with the bill? LOL I loved this story, and it has a great moral too… NEVER go on a blind date. ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. Disaster date, indeed!! This was really funny, I actually chuckled out loud a couple of times. (Especially when he spat out the flaming Sambuca and then doused it with even more alcohol). At least she’s got a good story to tell!

  4. Dear Victoria,

    Loved the line about checking the steak knives to see if they’re sharp enough to slit her wrists. Very funny. Reminiscent of Dorothy Parker’s “The Waltz.” Well done.



  5. Ouch. That’s quite the bad date! I liked the last line – just one more gut-punch to add to the list. And the friend seems to have a sense of humour too. Good stuff

  6. Definitely the date from hell, one you’d hate to pay for in any of these ways. The good news is, she didn’t invest a lot of time and effort (and maybe money) and then have this happen. ๐Ÿ™‚
