The Comic Makes Me Sad

Born Loser 07-30-09
I remember all my first dates. It's all part of being a decent guy (who doesn't really go on many dates). 2000, after work went to see "O Brother, Where Art Thou" but missed the first fifteen minutes. 2001, double date to go see "Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles". 2002, skipped out on work to eat at Schlotzsky's. 2003, a nice dinner and then we were supposed to see a movie ("Gothika") but instead went driving around. 2004, we had lunch at Chili's. 2006, we had a nice fancy dinner at Teller's in Downtown Lawrence. 2008, it was snowing and we didn't really know what to do so we finally settled on Yello Sub. And those are just the dates that led to an actual relationship.

I'm kind of hoping that the joke is related to old age and the horrible memory old people are supposed to have and not a commentary on how the Thornapples now have a loveless marriage.
