Chrystal Ball 2011.png

One of the weird things about dating in the modern world is the idea that you end up connecting (or not connecting) with virtual strangers.

Saturday night I went on a  black tie blind date. I had never met this man and yet we spent 7 hours at an event together at the 2011 Crystal Ball.
It was  set up by a mutual friend and it ended up being a lot of fun.
My week had been particulary busy so I had not had a minute to think about it. 
But after I got dressed – younger teenage daughter, who is CEO of SASS in our house, (“mom-you taught me everything I know about being sassy- what can I say, I learned from the best”- see how even that is sassy?) says to me-
“I thought you said NEVER TALK TO STRANGERS and you are going out for the whole evening with one?”
Big smile on her face.
Big slap to her bum.
