I’ve got a funny story and it only occurred to me after talking to a fellow Yelper about this thread. The first girl I ever met online and actually went on a date with was a Georgia State grad student. She was nice, but we weren’t exactly compatible. We went on only one date and I decided she really wasn’t for me. Then one day, she saw in my GChat status message that I was planning on going to the Georgia Tech vs. Georgia State basketball game later that night. I am a Tech grad, die-hard Tech sports fan, have season tickets to men’s basketball games, and go to every home game. Anyway, she saw my status message and invited herself to the game with me!
So later that night, she drove to my place and we went to the game together. I did NOT want to sit in my regular seats because I did not want any of my fellow season ticket holders, friends, and/or co-workers to spot me with this new girl and start asking me about her, talking about her, etc. I took her down to the student section to blend in. Well, lo and behold, at the first or second timeout of the game, we were put on the freaking Jumbotron on KISS CAM! I saw us on the Jumbotron and immediately pretended I didn’t know what the hell was going on. Luckily, she was so enthralled by the cheerleaders on the court, she never looked up and saw us. I was so unbelievably embarrassed and the entire coliseum let out a loud “BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!” because I didn’t kiss her. Great!
The next day at work, my boss (another season ticket holder who was at the game), asked me, “Dan, my wife said she swore she saw you on Kiss Cam last night, but I only got a glance. Was that you!?” Me: “Uh, no.”
