We're All A Mess, It's OK: A collection of funny essays and one-liners about the struggles of everyday life by [Lyle, Amy]

We’re All A Mess, It’s OK by Amy Lyle

My First Date And A Sluggish Toilet

When I was sixteen, Jeff Jordan asked me out on a date. He had just recently come off full-on orthodontics headgear at the beginning of the school year and people had not yet caught on to his smokin’ hotness. My mother dropped me off at his house (the nicest house in our town) to have dinner. After drilling his parents for ten minutes about the “activities” allowed in their home, she made SEVERAL points about how the parents were responsoble for not allowing me to be in any situations that would jeopardize my chast state as one day I would be taking sanctioned marriage vows. Oddly, she agreed to allow his parents to drive me home.
