Song for the Soundtrack of Your Date Tonight

The best kind of date starts or ends with declaring your intentions. Getting caught up in the game means you don’t pass go and you don’t collect $200. Monopolize the object of your affection. If you dig em, don’t let them keep wandering the aisles searching for a new and improved version. They’ll find one. And your zipped lips will see their last lovelock. Communication gets intimate relations. Is that clear?

Song for the Soundtrack of Your No Date Tonight

Worst kind of no date is when you’re sitting right next to your date. Words unspoken cut through the silence. And your heart. Time to separate the wheat from the chaff. If there’s a kernel of love, say it. Save it. If there’s no true grain of love, move on. Life ain’t always a bowl of Honey Smacks, but if you go, please speak softly, leave no room for doubt.
