Sunday is always better for dates, Conner says. All the Saturday people stay home and the lines at the mini golf park are short and the ice cream barrels are all filled up because they run out of Zanzibar by the end of the week.
You can get two-for-one carousel rides on Sunday, Conner says. And since he knows the carousel jockey you can probably stay on all day if you want. You can probably eat ice cream while your going around and up and down if you want to, Conner says.
Last Sunday was family day down at the speedway and Conner took a red head and her little brother. The kid kept shooting spit wads through a soda straw and hit some big guy on the back of his neck. The guy didn’t notice and the wad was still stuck to his big, old neck when they left. Maybe it’s still there, Conner says.
Conner says, the way to get girls to date you is to have a reputation for being romantic. Girls think guys who bring flowers are romantic, so a guy should always bring a huge bouquet of flowers when he’s going out on a date.
But you can never buy a girl flowers, Conner says. You just can’t spend that kind of money on a date. You have to be thrifty; you have to raid a cemetery, and that’s why Sunday is always better for dates, Conner says.
I just couldn’t get this notion out of my head after reading Lynne’s, “Beautiful cheap flowers” suggestion. I love beautiful cheap flowers, but not enough to raid a cemetery, no, certainly not that. I’m still of the mind that I should never laugh as a hearse goes by, or that I should hold my breath out of respect for the dead as I pass a graveyard. (That notion doesn’t hold up well if you’re ever actually visiting a graveyard and that in itself makes me rather nervous)
