Every morning I listen to a radio show on my way to Boces. They have a segment called “Someone is being blown up”. It is about someone who hasn`t heard from a first date after the first date. It is the typical “I haven`t heard from my date for days. We had such an awesome first date.” Well, the truth is, the first date was not that “awesome” and there are reasons for it. The caller has no clue why the date has not reached out again for a second date. On a desperate move, the blown-up date calls the radio station hosts who makes a “bridge” call to the supposed unreached person. I calls cracks me up every day.

I challenged my students to write about what can go wrong on a first date. The response is hilarious. You should follow their advice before going on a first date.

Here they go.
