Palm of My Hand

Laura’s 17 year old cousin recently explained to us his newest theory on dating.

Dan: I have figured out how to woo any girl so much that I’ll have her eating out of the palm of my hand within 15 minutes.

Laura: How’s that?

Dan: Picture this… I take her downtown to McCormick & Schmick’s. Corner booth. Candle light. A couple of rootbeers. And a nice, 7 oz filet mignon. By the time to steak arrives, she’ll be so impressed that she’ll be eating out of the palm of my hand.

Laura and I exchange a quizzical look and shake our heads in mock shame.


Statistics show that one in three people don’t wash their hands after using the bathroom.

To all the single, teenage, lean beef-loving girls in the Kansas City metro… you should always eat your steak off of the plate it came on – never out of the hand of the guy who buys it for you.

    ooohhhh Aaron; such a lovely tasty photo to be totally ruined by the images that follow. It’s not only the camera that creates the image you know–don’t forget the power of the words!

    Auntie M, if the ‘not handwashing’ statistic is what totally ruined it for you, you have nothing to worry about as I’m certain that was a U.S. survey. As a resident of Canada (and, I presume, as a person who eats off of her plate) you can rest assured that your lovely, tasty steak is totally safe.
