Dating Episode # 343

I was on a street corner in Ballard with a date, holding his arm and laughing about something, when he pointed, kitty-corner.

"Hey, look, an interracial couple," he said, totally straight-faced. "THAT'S something you don't see every day."

I looked at my yuppie, real-estate-magnate date--who also happened to be black--and burst out laughing.

"Maybe there's a mirror on that corner that reflects us," I said, still giggling.

He gave that couple the five-second once over before shaking his head and turning away. "Nah," he said. "She's nowhere as cute as you are."
