Your crush takes you to this restaurant on the first date, just so you know, this restaurant has items likeBlack Poop Chocolate Sundae, Constipation, Dirty Piss and Bloody Number 2 on its menu.
(a) just go with the flow (after all he's your long time crush and you've been fantasizing about this day forever.
(b) suggest he take you elsewhere (yeah, you've fantasized for so long but....)
(c) tell him you suddenly have a headache and immediately say goodbye.
LOL. While we're speaking of dates, what's the most bizarre/weirdest date you've ever been on? I've told you my best and worst first dates. Now allow me to tell you the weirdest.
I reconnected with someone from the past last year. We were never friends, just members of the same institution and we never spoke but he looked familiar. That day when I saw him at the mall I said Hi and introduced myself. We exchanged numbers and said goodbye. We started talking over the phone and all of that and he eventually asked that we go out together.
I remember it was a public holiday and he wanted us to go see a movie which I didn't mind doing but that morning he called and suggested we do something different. I was getting excited at what he would come up with, only for him to say "let's go to the cemetery". I was waiting for him to say "haha, just kidding!" So that I could scold him for his poorly made joke, but it turned out that he was serious. Apparently his friend had died in a car crash one year prior to that day, and he was the last person his friend spoke to before he died and that was his best friend. I actually felt bad for him, but to follow him to the cemetery? Mba kwa! I told him let's reschedule our date so that he could go visit his friend but he was adamant.
He now started to ask why I was reluctant and didn't I know that it was better to mourn that to rejoice? That even the Bible says it is better to go to the house of mourning than to go to a house of celebration (Hia). And that going to the cemetery will give me a new perspective on things..... And we could go to the movies afterwards. Apparently this guy wasn't taking No for an answer so I said Ok.
We got there but I refused to come out from the car. I told him I'll wait in the car. I've been to a cemetery only once before (that same Ikoyi cemetery), when I lost a friend some years back and I'm not too keen on revisiting.
He spent about 15 minutes there and when he came back began a very depressing monologue about the meaning of life, death and the afterlife. I just sat there wishing I could evaporate into thin air. And then after the talk he wanted to head to The Palms. I told him "Nna biko take me home". #totalbuzzkill.
Well, that technically didn't end up being a date but it was pretty bizarre, plus I still don't understand why you'd want to take someone you technically just met the week before to a cemetery. Strange people abound.
As always, if you've got a story to share, I'm always willing to hear it. Do share!
