First Date

Tina was young and naive.  She was also a statuesque beauty that Rex fell for the first time he saw her picture.

Rex had everything in order.  He thought he had arranged the perfect first date to start off the evening’s festivities.

The restaurant was cozy and dimly lit.  Rex had a view of the front door and would be able to spot her as soon as she walked in.  He had a single rose on the table next to him ready for that moment.

After an hour and 3 bourbons, Rex knew he had been stood up.  He stepped out into a damp Houston night.

Rex turned up his collar against cold.  He had his hands stuffed deep into his pockets, trying to keep them warm.  He clinched the little bottle in his pocket even tighter.

Clouds of vapor puffed out of his mouth as he walked along the sidewalk, cursing and muttering to himself.

“Bitch coulda at least texted me.  I sit there for a freakin’ hour waiting on her!  Hell, I told her we’d go to the  game after!  I told her that I had bought the tickets for crissake!”

Rex’s feet were getting wet.  He’d stepped in a puddle as he crossed the street to his car.  This made him all the more angry.  “Flaky whore!”

As he approached his car he fished his keys out.  He clicked the little button on the remote and the trunk lid made a soft “chunk” sound and sprung open.

Cautiously looking around him, Rex reached into the trunk and pulled the gym bag out unzipping it.  He spread open the top of the bag and peered inside.  All was as it should be.  There was a good, strong nylon rope, duct tape, and a large knife.

He dug into his front pocket and pulled out the little bottle of chloroform.   He dropped it into the gym bag along with his other date night tools.

I’d Rather Set My Hair On Fire!

Back in 2018, I did a post about Internet Dating called “Internet Dating Sucks“.  This has become one of the more popular posts on my blog.  Other than one snarky comment, this post had a very positive response. 

Now, in 2022, my view has not changed.  I’ve been single and have lived alone for a Very Long Time.  Perhaps I’ve become jaded.   I have not attempted another try at Internet Dating for 6 or 7 years.  The psychological beating that I took previously was enough torture for me!!  

Having retired in December, my life now moves at a slower pace.  I live alone but consider my life one that is rich, peacful and filled with love.  

Internet Dating?  Nope!  I’d rather set my Hair on Fire! 

*Tell me about your Internet Dating Experience.  Was it good or bad??  

Thank you for joining me on this journey.   Penny ❤

Cranky, Crabby People

Ok, I’ve had a little backlash over a post I did on Internet Dating.  You can find it HERE.    Geeeze!  You just can’t say anything anymore without someone getting their panties in a bunch!  I KNOW that women are just as bad as men are out there.  I even state that in the first paragraph of the post.  If it looks like I took a female point of view on this, well damn!  I’M FEMALE!

I tried to make this post light-hearted and humorous.  If something like this gets you all shook up, you’ve got bigger problems than just finding a date!

If you leave me nasty comments, you are wasting your time because they will not be seen.  They will be swiftly deleted! 

Happy Wednesday My Friends!  🙂  Penny

Internet Dating Sucks

Internet Dating Sucks.  I don’t care what site you try, they all suck.  Internet dating has done nothing but make the process of dating even worse.  You are now a commodity.  You’re disposable, because the jerk that just “ghosted” you is scamming on 4 or 5 other women at the same time he’s been talking to you.  Women are no better.  They have picked up the same deplorable habits.
