Women and Wine
In my youth, I once went out with three different women in the span of two weeks. That's three first dates, all over dinner.
In the course of the meal, all three women drank wine. (I prefer beer.) I got all three women to talk about themselves.
And in the course of that conversation, all three women wept.
Now, before you suggest that they were crying because it was a bad date, let me say that I subsequently saw all three of these young women again. I recall taking one of them to a party. Another I took to an entertainment venue. The third I saw for months -- I remember that she later broke up with me on my birthday.
The experience creeped me out, a little. Three dates, all of whom I reduced to tears?
Later, however, I decided that there was something about talking about one's life that makes many women cry...especially under the influence of alcohol.
Am I wrong?
