What Happened on My Date with the Grocery Boy

Plans, March 2017

You're probably wondering what happened on my date Monday night with the grocery boy, aka the face of supreme beauty, aka Zack, the assistant manager at the Hy-Vee.

I picked him up in the check-out line on Saturday afternoon, and invited him over for dinner.  I planned to serve chicken a l'orange, arugula salad, and fried plantains.


Zack arrives.  I invite him to sit down in the living room while I finish the chicken and make the salad.


The chicken can simmer for awhile.


I'm not usually into anal, but who can say no to that face?


I ask Zack to start on the salad while I finish the chicken and heat the casserole.


I don't even know his last name yet.


I'm usually good for just once a night, but....


We can do without the salad.  Let me just take the chicken off the burner, reheat the broccoli-cauliflower casserole, and open a can of artichoke hearts.  I ask Zack what he would like to drink.


He tells me.


This time Zack calls the shots.


The chicken and casserole are cold.  I put them in the refrigerator and order a vegetarian pizza from Domino's.  We turn on Netflix while waiting for it to arrive.


This is why on the first date, you always go out to dinner.
