Most Unique Way To Ask Someone On A Second Date
And the award goes to...
Then came the hostage demands: A second date, as soon as possible, or one by one, a chocolate will be eradicated.
These poor salted chocolate caramels didn't ask to be put in the middle of this negotiation. Nor did they deserve to be eaten in haste.
They should be enjoyed. Savored. Appreciated slowly. Bite by exquisite bite. Ok, who am I kidding? I would devour that box of deliciousness in about a day and not even feel bad about it.
But I had to hand it to this guy. Very clever. Inventive. And downright funny.
And then came the final warning: The clock is ticking.
My cohost noticed me laughing, so I showed him the message from *Softball Guy now a.k.a Hostage-Taker and he said, "You should go to lunch today and bring those in for us tomorrow."
Whoa. Whoa. Whoa... "For us?"
"Well, yeah, US! I brought you shrimp this week," he reasoned. While that was indeed true, he didn't have to do anything for the shrimp. His lovely wife made them for dinner and he just brought the leftovers into work. In fact, she probably boxed them up for him. (I made sure to point all that out. You can hear that particular conversation from our show HERE).
"Whoop-dee-do! All you have to do is go to lunch with this guy. Get in, get the chocolates, and get out." Then he just stared at me, like, 'how hard is that?'
At this rate, with our dynamic-duo of a planning system, the FBI will probably want to hire us for their negotiation team. I mean, who needs trained professionals when you've got us on the scene?
But time was ticking. And if there is one thing that has become overwhelmingly apparent- I can be bribed with food. As long as it comes in the form of chocolatey salted caramels (or any variation of such), I pretty much can't say no.
Then things got super serious! If there was any doubt that this guy was bluffing, more photographic evidence popped through a text this morning.
One caramel gone. May it rest in peace.
So tomorrow night, I've made arrangements to rescue the remaining candy. Wish me luck.
