I don’t really understand where the cliché “a rolling stone gathers no moss” came from. Are there stones somewhere that are constantly rolling and therefore are moss-less? Well, I do understand its implication. There are some people that are constantly on the move and therefore have a vibrant spirit. I know because I am one of those people. I bet by now you have guessed that my date Karen is one of those people as well.
What better sign of an adventurous person than going on a roller coaster filled date? It was a perfect day to visit Knott’s Berry Farm. The weather was perfect and there were no lines on any of the rides. We were constantly on the move and were able to maximize the park and go on pretty much everything.
Being constantly on the move may have inspired a lot of our conversation. We talked about our ambitions and all the things that we have done. I told her about my idea to make a musical that appeals to men. She told me that she has a list of 30 things that she wanted to accomplish before her next birthday. Our date helped her accomplish one of those 30 goals (glad I can be of service). Then she explained all the places that she has been. She made me a little jealous she had been to Ireland and even gave me a little info to help me accomplish the same thing one day.
After we were worn out from going on all the rides it was time to eat. Dinner was pretty tasty and filling. There was some good conversation and we finished our meal and kept talking for about a half hour. We talked about the popular misconception people have about us, work, and our living situations. The only thing that cut our conversation short was that I was starting to feel sick. Blasted! So we left the restaurant quickly to find a CVS to cure my stomach of the greasy chicken I had just eaten. One of the perks of going out with an adventurous person is that they are really resourceful. In no time we found a CVS and she pointed me to the best tasting tums.
Soon my tummy was feeling better and I was ready to go. By that I mean I was ready to chill and watch a movie - True Grit. How we fit all this into one date I do not know. Then again there is no time to waste being a rolling stone, so what else would you expect? Speaking of rolling stones, maybe I could “get some satisfaction” from a second date.
