Great Cheap Date #14

Wash and Dry

“Make a date to meet at your favorite laundromat to do your laundry, but pretend to be strangers. Somewhere between the sorting and borrowing detergent introduce yourselves. Perhaps between rinsing and spinning you could bravely begin to make small talk, and by the time you’re folding and leaving, see if you can’t make a date to get to know each other’s dirty laundry better.”

Did you ever see the movie Four Christmases? The scene opens with Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn pretending to meet in a bar for the first time when they are really a dating couple. He’s going down in a flame of pick up lines while she completely shuts him down cold in the middle of all these people. Next thing you know, he’s put her in her place (which she finds irresistible) and they leave the bar together arm in arm to everyone else’s amazement.


I don’t know if I would have the nerve to roll play like that, but if I can muster it up, this would be the cheap date challenge to give it a try. Considering my recent Laundress post, I think this date will not only be fun, but rather necessary in our case.

    The Happy Hubby and I love that first scene of Four Christmases! We have talked about trying that out some time, but I don’t think we could pull it off without laughing within the first two minutes!!!! ­čÖé
