Anita came over to our house around 5:00 to get ready as he usually does. He had agreed to meet the manager at a trendy bar downtown for a drink at 6:30 and then they would go down the block for dinner.
Even though Anita didn't really want to go out on this date, he sure dolled himself in a way that any man would certainly find irresistible. Just take a look at the photo I took before Anita headed out for the evening. He is so gorgeous!
As Anita was trying to get out the door to get downtown on time, mom was nervously giving him all the advice a mom could give a daughter going out on her first date -- "don't drink too much," "do you have some emergency money?" "call me immediately if you need me," and on and on. It was very cute, but I think it was making Anita even more nervous. Eventually, mom let Anita go and he grabbed his purse and car keys and headed out for the evening.
