THE FIRST DATE WITH MRS. CRANKY
The son managed to arrange a date with the young black girl and his friend Sonny, the Mafia boss, had some advice for him.
“In every man’s life you get two great women.”
“How do you know if you have one of the great ones?”
“I lend you my car. When you pick up this girl, you get out of the car and push the button down and lock your door. You go around and let her in; then you go back to your door. If she slides over and unlocks your door before you get there, she is a keeper. If she don’t reach over and lift up that button she’s a selfish broad and can’t be trusted. If she don’t unlock the door for you…dump her and dump her fast.”
The first date I had where I drove Mrs. Cranky, we went to a local bar to listen to an Irish band. We had a nice dinner, a drink or two (only one for Mrs. C.) and enjoyed good conversation and good live music.
When the band was done we left the bar and went out to my car. I unlocked Mrs. C’s door, let her in and went around to my door. My Jeep does not have the remote “boop, boop” unlock button. As I went to my door I saw Mrs. C. lean over and unlock my driver-side door before I could reach it.
That is when I knew she was a keeper!
