Woodrow Wilson

As cheesy as it may sound, honesty is the best policy. If I’m feeling something, not feeling it, you should know.

The last couple of months, dating for me has been defined by honest communication. Not the crazy, did this really happen, I should have thrown a drink in your face, type of dates.

While receiving the communication can hurt, sometime the bearer can feel even worse.

While my dating stories may not be as entertaining lately, lucky for you, and me, my roommate’s are 🙂 And she has given me full permission to share.

I mean, imagine it is your second date. You are sliding down the cafeteria style line at Kramarczuk’s and suddenly your date is singing the Looney tunes song….

And he is serious. Full on, serenading you with looney tunes.

He then walks you through the four different ways to pronoun pecan, in a, I’m enriching your life immensely sort of tone.

And while pecans and looney toons may be odd…. then his intense rage over former President Woodrow Wilson surfaces. Hes yelling and professing his hatred for Woodrow. Fists are pounding on the table. Pounding!


A place I suggest for non-Woodrow rage dates:

Grand CafĂ©. I’m having a love affair with South Minneapolis lately, and Grand CafĂ© just continues it.

Go to Grand Café. Just leave your personal presidential rage at home.

Do you struggle with honest communication?

Ever been on a table pounding date?

  1. pounding on the table? just makes me think of a gorilla – or, wait, maybe a small angry child? either way, not dating material. the good news? your meal at grand cafe looks delish – can you believe i’ve never been there? it’s right next to my favorite fabric & candy shop 🙂

  2. I mean, what did Woodrow Wilson do to make him so mad? I feel like that is such a random President to be furious about…

  3. The Pecan commentary could have been a misguided quoting of when Harry met Sally…..but the woodrow wilson rage is completely uncalled for. Thank Goodness he let his feelings on the topic known before a full relationship was started.

  4. I am thankful for your stories for they remind me of how grateful I am to be out of the dating pool 🙂

    Take me to brunch! Miss you dear.

  5. As a foreigner from the great white North, I don’t think I have any opinions on Woodrow Wilson- did he really suck? Wait, am I even allowed to have opinions on presidents? I really do dig Mr.Lincoln- he was a cool dude. Ok, aside from my useless ramble, thank god she got out before he went off on a tirade about…i don’t know….his favorite brand of fabric softener. Meanwhile, Grand cafe, a repeat sesh with some blogger friends perhaps?
