"Chicken Plant"??

It was a bad almost-date story. When I was in high school there was this guy who would always joke around with me and act flirty - it was very clear that he was interested in me. He just wasn't my type. One Saturday he called me at home (not sure how he got my #) and asked me to go on a picnic with him and his family - I had to find an excuse really fast, so I told him I was sick and couldn't go. About an hour later, the doorbell rang, my mom answered, it was for me and there he was... He came from a very large family and they were all in my driveway while he was standing at the door with a Hens and chicks plant - looking at the plant, he said how sorry he was that I was sick and that he brought me a "chicken plant". Then he looked up and turned pale. He proceeded to explain that he hadn't intended to ask me out but thought he was talking to my best friend who ironically had the same first name. It was just strange - after he left, my parents came out of hiding laughing so hard they were in tears.

A real "bad date" story - I was 19 and went on a first date with this guy who was a little older. He asked me to marry him that night and explained that he was gay and needed a wife to get his brother off his back. I asked "why me" and he said I had nice legs.

LOL! Goodness me, quite the dinner-table stories.
