Date One- Memphis (Costa Mesa)
I actually met the Fuck Yeah Girl at the Halloween party in the previous blog. So once I got out of Fancy Nancy mode I called Hanna and asked her if she thought Marilyn would be interested. She made the call and I got an e-mail from her Marilyn the next day. Not only did she say she would love to go out, but she actually had a place in mind. Wow that was totally different than what I had become accustomed to.
Friday rolled in and I was off to pick her up, she is 9 years younger than me so that was quite a switch for me, I had never dated anyone in my life that was more than a couple years younger and mostly stuck with woman my own age. Hey its not like she is a teenager or anything, she is 43, it was then that I decided I would never date under 40. Yes that will be my cutoff...wherein the hell that came from I have no idea but I do know for certain that I never want to be that old guy (even though I think I still look kinda of young for my age) with the chippie. YUK! It's just not appealing to me in the least, call me crazy.
Marilyn gave me a brief tour of her little bungalow, it was really eclectic and I like that. Off we went to the place she picked out "Memphis". The place is a real dumpy looking building, both inside and out, the patio area (where we sat) wasn't level so your chair kinda of rocks when you move. We got our menu's and ordered a bottle of wine, the menu was surprisingly appetizing, and better yet when the food came it was outstanding. I highly recommend the joint if your in the So. Cal area. (Charmaine, it's almost kitty corner from Mesa, next to the Lab).
Conversation came very easy, in fact she was a chatterbox on every subject be it politics, music, movies whatever. After dinner we went to Havana a cuban place and sat out by the fire pit on the patio and had a couple more glasses of wine. That's when she started talking endlessly about television shows that she followed. tons of shows I had never heard of, or may have heard of but never seen.
