"Our Original Recipe!" ... "The Blind Date: Once in every person's life comes a horrific journey, a rite of passage, a high stakes game of roulette requiring many rolls of the dice to hit pay dirt. In many cases, it's just dirt.
It's that modern ritual known as — the Blind Date.
I vowed never again to utter those words, 'How will I recognize you?' after my last date cooked up canned spaghetti and a TV marathon of professional wrestling. But when my friend declared (for the 6th time) she'd found my perfect match, I sighed and mentally donned my dating fatigues.
First, mark the battle sight. My current fix-up, Steve, suggested lunch. Brilliant — ripe with Plan B strategic maneuver-out possibilities — a meeting, a sick aunt to visit, or training for that marathon. Then, the call to arms: 'How will I recognize you?' This is a crucial question, to which the date will almost always spout the name of some movie start to whom they beat a striking resemblance. But Steve said 'I'll be the one with the Grandma Shearer's Kettle Style Potato Chips in the bright red bag. I eat them everyday for lunch. They're so light and crunchy, it's a little surprise for your mouth.' I'd never heard of Grandma Shearer's, but Steve got points for originality.
I departed to the agreed upon deli on the designated day. Sitting in the corner happily munching a bag of Grandma Shearer's Kettle Style Potato Chips was the most amazing looking blind date I'd ever seen. As I took my seat, I said, 'You look like you're enjoying those chips. Mind if I try one?' He looked at me oddly, but then he offered the bag. '
'Wow, these are really good, Steve, I see why you like them. They're light and crispy with the perfect touch of salt. They just melt in your mouth. They've got great taste!' Then my tall, dark and handsome date looked deep into my eyes and said, 'I don't know who Steve is, but I'm John, and I'm willing to share.' "
