The awkwardness. The anxiety. The sweaty palms. Ah, the joys of a blind date. But then there's the laughing about it afterward with friends, and doesn't that make it all better? A hilarious collection of more than 50 true stories of dates gone crazily wrong-though sometimes with a happy ending-My Blind Date Went Blind! is as much fun as sharing stories with a best friend. Here's the date who shows up with his soon-to-be ex-wife in the backseat. The date who thinks it's sexy to eat a bowl of noodles in one mouthful, tearing off the dangling ends with both hands. The date who can't pay for the $2.00 matinee when he discovers the price went up to $3.00. The forgetful woman who administers the same pop quiz-Can you spell "segue"? Who is Frank Lloyd Wright?-two dates in a row. The rabid Harry Potter fan who just won't stop calling (with updates about his therapeutic progress). And of course the date who loses his vision in the middle of dinner-a literal moment of hysterical blindness-and needs to be walked home. (Oh, and he wasn't able to pay the cheque either, of course.) With sidebars including Worst Pickup Lines Ever and Very Bad Movie Choices for First Dates, it is the perfect antidote to the dating blahs: You just have to laugh.
