20. Describe the worst date you ever went on: I can't say I've ever been on a bad date but I do have a funny homecoming story. My senior year in high school my boyfriend and I were going to the homecoming dance together. He came over beforehand to take pictures along with my best friend and her date. When he presented my wrist corsage, while beautiful, it was more like an arm shrub (it literally went from my wrist to my elbow). My best friend and I laughed about it in the bathroom for 10 minutes trying to figure out what to do about it. Finally, we just cut it in half and told him it was very pretty but a bit large.
