But sometimes don’t you wish you could just erase a memory from your mind?
There are some cringe relationships and dates I would definitely like to erase from my past, but I guess they have all made me who I am today.
I once went out with someone who was a complete jerk but ended up being the CEO of a very successful company. If you think that’s bad can you imagine going on a date with a person who is possibly the most odious man in America?
You know what’s coming.
Lucy Klebanow wrote a personal essay for Salon.com about the night that she went on a date with Donald Trump. Awkward.
It was the early 1970s. I was about 23 at the time and he was in his late 20s. We met through friends talking at a bar…
…So I met a nice guy through friends at the bar and he asked me for my telephone number. He called me the next day and asked me out. Said he would pick me up around 7. I lived in a building with a doorman who called me on the house-phone to say my date was here. I locked and went downstairs expecting to see a guy standing out front with his hands in his pockets looking sheepish. Instead there was no one. Just a white Cadillac convertible. My date leaned over and said, “Hop in.” I didn’t know what to make of this. I lived in NYC and nobody ever picked me up in a car except to go to the airport. I was too surprised and flustered to be impressed. I felt like I was in a James Dean movie. If he wanted to impress me, a Cadillac wouldn’t do it, but if he got out of the car, and opened the door for me, then I would be impressed.
