My first date...

...was with a girl named Meredith Durkee. I was 15 (I was a late bloomer) which meant that her mom had to drop her off at the movie theater and pick her up afterwards. We had dinner at the Chinese restaurant next to the theater called The Haluwa. Afterwards we saw "Soul Man" starring 80's icon Thomas C. Howell.

It was a pretty uneventful evening, nothing exciting happened and I didn't even get a goodnight kiss. About the only detail I can actually remember from the night was the fortune that I got in my fortune cookie:

"Go after what you want...there's no better time than the present."

Strange, the things you remember.
