Car Buying, Speed Dating, & An Impossible Match

Emily had begged to go speed dating.  I said there just wasn’t time, which seems a little oxymoron-ish considering speed dating’s whole concept revolves around quick assessments, and rejections, specifically for those individuals that don’t have time.  I like that speed dating seems to have the potential for hilarity, and a good story, two aspects […]
