Oh, The Awkwardness

So I went on a date on Sunday. In my effort to be open-minded, I agreed to have beers with a guy I had not met, but had talked to on the phone. He was a little awkward on the phone. It was exemplified when we were in person.

I don't even know where to begin...

Let's start with the beers. We at a restaurant that has something like 100 beers on tap. So we get the menus and are deciding what to order. He asks me what kind of beer I like, then begins telling me that he brews his own beer. I have minor concerns about this discussion for various reasons, but let it pass.

Then we order our beers. He orders a chocolate stout and I order a Shiner Bock. They come and I ask him if he has ever been to the brewery in Tempe. He said he hasn't so I tell him that they have a DELICIOUS oatmeal stout that I highly recommend. He asks if I've ever had the one he ordered. I say no. He hands it to me to try.

Granted, he has not taken a drink out of it yet, but we don't know each other. I was a little freaked out. But not wanting to be offensive, I tried it. It was good.

So we drink our beers while he talks about the most random subjects you can think of. Including, but not limited to: dehydrating food, left guard lock, dishwasher installation, Craig's List, etc.

Then, we order our second beers, each of us gets a different one the second time around. And when they come - he has me taste his again. I just don't think this is normal...


  1. I am totally into tasting strangers drinks. Minus the herp, of course.

  2. what!? I didn't know about this...

  3. i think he wanted to taste your lips rather than you taste his beer ;) ooo la la
