Q: So I’m in the grocery store the other night buying ramen noodles ‘cause that’s literally the only thing I can afford to eat. Right after I had put the fourth huge case into my cart, a really cute girl approaches me and says, “Wow, that’s a lot of ramen.” For whatever reason, my immediate response is, “Yeah, I’m buying it for a local food drive for the homeless.” Wouldn’t you know it, but the girl finds this extremely sexy for some reason, and we continue to talk for a few minutes. Eventually, I ask her out, and we decide she will come to my place for dinner and a movie later on this week. What in the hell am I supposed to do? I have no money and a kitchen full of ramen noodles that are supposed to be for some mysterious food drive. Your thoughts?
