Where did the first caveman take the first cavewoman on their first date? It must have been to dinner— maybe a nice mastodon steak with a side of ferns. Eating and dating have always gone together.
JESSA: I’ve got eating in a restaurant when I’m on a date down to a science. I gauge my nervousness and, depending on how I feel, I determine whether I can order something requiring utensils. If I’m really jittery, I worry about shaking, so I order a hamburger or something I can eat with my hands.
I’ve ordered soft drinks and never taken a sip from them throughout the entire meal. Why? They came without a straw and I was afraid my hand was shaking too badly to pick up the glass. If a straw is there, I can slide the drink to the edge of the table, lean down and take a sip. Without a straw, I generally don’t drink.
