I find it hard to believe that Mother Gargle didn't know where Gladys and Brutus went on their first date. I also don't think that going to a baseball game is a bad first date. There's no pressure, it's out in public so it's safe, and you can talk to each other during the boring parts of the game--which is like 70% of it.

If you would like to support my writing or research, you can buy me a cup of coffee over on Ko-fi.
