When I saw the thread about ashes it reminded me of a guy I dated back in the day.

He was a widower whose wife died six years prior in a tragic car accident that killed all but him. As he was telling me the story he told me that he didn't know what to do with her ashes. Then he procedes to tell me that she is in the box between our seats. His wife was literally along for the ride on our date. Um, that was our last date.

I went on a first date and I was the driver. He asked me to pull into the gas station. He went inside and bought me a rose. From the gas station. I was supposed to be all grateful I guess, but it really just gave me the creeps.

Wierd, not so much but definitely WTH moment...I was about 18 maybe when I went on a group outing to the movies. My boyfriend at the time didn't tag along because he wasn't feeling well. Anway, we end up at an 'out of the way' theatre because everything local was sold out. And, who would you imagine I pass on my way to see the same movie?

Yep...boyfriend with another girl. I'd never seen a guy get so pale. Felt so good to dump his ass right then and there.

I was in high school for this one. I was on a date with a boy I had grown up with - our moms were best friends for a long time. On the way home, blue lights start flashing behind us - he was driving a little too fast. Instead of pulling over, he tried to outrun the cops! He took me on a high speed chase down a windy country road. We didn't go out again...

on my first date with a guy, he was pulled over while we were heading to a party and taken to jail for an outstanding warrant. something like unpaid tickets, not a murder. i had to attempt to drive his stick shift car that had almost no brakes to his friend's house who i didn't know and had never been to. i made it, but it was kinda scary!

about an hour and a half later he came walking in (had walked from the police station when they released him) and we resumed our date. yeah, i knew how to pick 'em lol.

You guys have much more exciting dates than I do. My only "odd' thing was that the guy's truck broke down and we had to call his brother for a jump. He was a boring as could be, so for reasons not related to the truck battery we never went out again.

The guy asked me to marry him!!!!!! Yep, first date. I was 17, he was 20... I know, I know, but this was back in the 1970's and I had known him from high school. I politely turned him down and when he took he home that night he asked me if I was sure I didn't want to marry him, again I said no thanks. He never asked me out again!

I was about 17 (senior in HS). I met this guy through my work (he was a repair guy probably in his early 20's). He invited me over to dinner at his house. When I got there he had not even started to cook dinner (and the meat was still frozen - no microwave). Anyways, we got through dinner and afterwards we started to kiss. he kept trying to get me to go to his bedroom with him and I refused. So he excused himself to go to the bathroom and he came back out BUCK NAKED!!! OMG, you have never seen a teen girl run out of a house, down the stairs and get into (and lock the doors) her car so fast. I can STILL see him running down the stairs with all his glory swinging back and forth (from my rear view mirror). LOL. totally lesson learned for this naive 17yr old girl!!!

I had been talking to a guy for a couple weeks and our first date he picked me up and we were to go to dinner and to see a movie.

On the way to dinner we were going through an intersection and a car coming the other direction ran a red light and plowed into my date's car.

Nobody was hurt, thankfully! My date and the other drives exchanged information and the police were called.

One of the police offers that responded was the father of my date's long time girlfriend.



After that was all taken care of he took me home and we never saw or talked to each other again.

Several years after this they ended up getting married and are still married as far as I know.

on the scale of weirdness, this really doesn't make the charts, but here's mine:

A guy asks me out on a date - asks more than once. We get to where we were meeting up and he proceeds to order the least expensive item on the menu and water. Then he says that he didn't bring cash, only his card and how about if I pay for dinner and he pays for the movie (guess I should be glad he didn't order anything too fancy!). Call me old fashioned, but the man should pay for the first date!!! Then later after the movie, he dropped me at my car and left without making sure I got into it / got it started ok. I know that doesn't make him rude at all. But it really showed me that he wasn't a thoughtful or protective gentleman.

As I said, it's not all that weird on the 2P Weirdo Charts, but it stands out to me as a bad date and bad manners.

This was not even actually a date. I went to a guy's house that I knew. He said he had something to show me. He had prepared a bubble bath, massage area, and my favorite dessert for me. I did not stay!

This was my one and only "blind date". I laughed about it then and I still laugh about it now.

I was on my first date about a year after my first husband died. A friend from work set me up on kind of a blind date: "He's a great guy. You two would be perfect for each other."

He is divorced and he knows that I was widowed.

I meet this guy for coffee in the early afternoon on a Saturday. He doesn't really say anything to me and he basically never makes eye contact with me, he is looking all around the coffee place/book store.

I get a 1 or 2 word response to everything I say.

"So do you have any children?"
--Yes

"Boy or girl?"
--Yes

"You have a son and a daughter?"
--Yes

Silence

"What are their names?"
--'Robert' and 'Chris'

"Is Chris short for a longer name?"
--Yes

Silence

"And that would be?"
--That would be what?

"What is Chris short for?"
--'Christina'

Silence

"I'm going to go get a little more coffee, would you like anything while I am up?"
--No

I take LOTS of time getting my coffee. I return.

Silence

He just gets up to get more coffee without saying anything, he buys himself a brownie, returns and sits down, doesn't ask me if I want anything or offer to share, he proceeds to eat his brownie.

Silence

(by now, this entire thing just seems so funny to me, I want to look around to see if I am Candid Camera or if the work friend is there laughing at this)

I try again to converse with Mr. One Word Answers.

"So 'Janice' told me that you are a physical therapist, do you specialize in any particular type of patient group or type of therapy."
--No

More silence

He then says, "You aren't really in good shape. You should go to the gym."

(I was a size 12 at the time).

I just look at him, give him the stink eye, I get up, pick up my empty coffee mug, and I turn to leave and start to walk away: I'm thinking "just let it go, just let it go" ...

...but I turn back and I say to him "My husband died about a year ago and this is my first time out with a guy and I just want to thank you."

He looks surprised.

"Meeting you here today has made me realize that I would rather be home ALONE than settle being out with a total turd like you."

I stalk off just full of indignation. I drove out of the parking lot and I was waiting at the light and I just started to crack up laughing about how absurd this all was.

On Monday, the friend said "How did it go?" I filled her in on what happened, she apologized to me for the next year.

I told her that I thought it was pretty funny.

This guy I knew from work had invited me over to dinner. We were chatting and everything was going fine and at some point he hugged me and said, "Are we going to be snuggle bunnies? I just need to know if we're going to be snuggle bunnies." And then he started crying.

Met a guy on a dating website. Agreed to go out with him.

He has "PLAYER" tattooed across his stomach.

How do I know what's tattooed on his stomach you ask? Well, because he had his shirt unbuttoned all the way. We proceed to go to a bar for some drinks. He invited about 10 of his friends to "join" us. Then, he started doing a stage show and singing. Mind you, there is no stage, Karaoke platform, or anything of the sort. He just stood in the middle of the bar and sang along with the bar music. He then proceeded to hit on every girl there while I sat and chatted with one of his friends.

Of course he asked me to go home with him at the end of the night, so I *was* pretty flattered!!

I don't have any good first date stories but I am definitely enjoying reading all of yours.

I do have one that is not as good as any of these and also wasn't a date. I was out at a club, dancing the night away and met a guy who worked at the same place I worked. We both knew each other by sight but had never met. The friend that drove us to the club wanted to leave and the guy said he would give me a ride. Since I saw the guy 5 nights a week at work, I trusted I would be fine to let him give me a ride about a mile down the street. We get to my place and he starts to make moves on me. I was kind of pulling away and he was seeing that it looked like he wasn't going to get lucky. He then told me "I love you!". I looked at him and just laughed. I said "You LOVE me? You don't even KNOW me.". I then got out of his car and went in my apartment. We actually became friends after that but never went out on data. LOL

I went out with a guy TWICE but apparently made a good impression.

Our second date was to a zoo. I took my camera but accidentally left it in his car. I had already decided that he was coming on a little too strong and made excuses when he asked me out again...and then he returned my camera. I got the pics developed about a week layer and one of them was a photo that he took of himself in a mirror. He was holding a sign that said, "I love you".

On mine and DH's first date(1977) we went to see Star Wars. We took my car, since he had a big 4WD truck. When we walked out of the movie theater there was my sister and her best friend sitting on the trunk of my car waiting for us to come out!! She wanted to see what he looked like! We all still laugh about this.

I went on a first date with a guy who took me out to dinner. He seemed really nice, opened doors, compliments, etc.

When the waitress came over and got our drink order, she brought us water and he examined his glass which had a floaty in it. Gross I know, but when he pointed it out to the waitress, he was downright nasty. Called her incompetent, lazy, just went off. I was floored when he went right back to being extremely polite to me.

When she came back to take our order, he gave his and asked "are you sure you can get that right?". I then proceeded to order the most expensive entree I possibly could and added a bunch of sides. It was a filet and lobster tail type meal. I waited a few minutes n allowed him to explain "you have to be firm with those who serve you" and excused myself to the Restroom.

I passed the waitress and apologized profusely for his behavior, explained the first date and told her I was leaving. She said to wait a second and packed up all the food I ordered and gave it to me to go and let me out the back door.

I started receiving texts shortly after asking if I was ok "in there" and I ignored them. About 25 minutes later, I got a nasty text telling me I owed him $64 for my meal. I text him that maybe next time he'd be a little nicer to those who who wait on him.

And dang that lobster was GOOD!

Oddest date was the guy who took me to meet his parents on the first date - which was basically a blind date.

Then I married him

I would have to say the first date that ended with "give me a BJ or get out of my car and walk home" while we were parked in the pouring rain at a park. I got home 30 minutes later soaking wet.

These are awful but hilarious!

Just after high school when I thought I was so grown up & knew everything about the world I went out with a customer I flirted with frequently. He was 24 & had his own apartment. Being just 18 I was so impressed. We went to the movies one night & things went really well & invited me to his apartment the next night for dinner.

When I get to his place the only beverages he had were water, Kool-Aid or alcohol. I took the Kool-Aid but quickly realized it was spiked. Part way through dinner I finally realized he only asked me out to get laid. I didn't want any part of that so I decide I'm going to just leave next time he goes into the kitchen for something.

He starts to clear our plates, get dessert & I think this is my moment. I'm going to run. I slip off my flats, start tip toeing towards the door when all of the sudden a woman starts banging on the door, screaming for the guy. "Jeff, I know you're in there. Open this door." She's pounding so hard I think she's about to break the door down. I freeze, he comes out of the kitchen & signals for me to move away from the door. We end up hiding in the kitchen, arguing in whispered voices about what we should do. I say call police, he wants to ignore her until she goes away.

Finally the pounding stops. I tell him I'm getting the hell out of there. He finally admits its his girlfriend & says she's probably waiting in parking lot so I should just spend the night. He says I should sleep with him in his bed so he knows I'm safe. I told him I'd take my chances & left. I was definitely safer outside than I was in his apartment. What a tool!

OMG! I am dying laughing here!
The snuggle bunny crier is too funny!
(Just to remind everybody- I am divorced! I just never changed my pea name.)
Okay, my most recent worst date was a few weeks ago.
I had met a guy on match.com and we met for lunch and it seemed to go pretty well.
A week or so later he asked me out for dinner. We had talked a couple of times on the phone but he was sounding kind of whiny and just wanted to talk about himself so I had my doubts about how this date might go but I agreed, thinking I'd give him a chance.
So, I'm busy working Friday afternoon (which I had told him I would be) and he calls around 4pm, saying he knew we were supposed to go out for dinner at 7pm, but he hadn't eaten lunch and he was hungry.
I told him to do whatever he needed to do.
When I got off work I called him, but he said he already fixed Hamburger Helper. I told him we could just meet for drinks.
I had a banana and headed toward the bar where he told me that he had filed for divorce and bankruptcy on the same day (last year; he is divorced), his house was being foreclosed on and he had been online all day filling out applications for Homeland Security jobs (that he had no experience for.)
Oh, and he talked nonstop about himself.
Oddly, he was surprised when I said I had to be going....
and I called my girlfriend and we went out for dinner and drinks! I was hungry.

The guy came to pick me up in a truck. It was running rough, so he asked if I could drive. We went to the $1 movies. While walking up to the theater, he asked if we could go stag. Luckily, we didn't go out to eat.

After we got back to my house, he said he had a great time and wanted to go out again. Never did!

I met a blind date for dinner at a Chinese restaurant. My friend had fixed us up, telling me he was a very nice guy who had a touch of shyness. What an understatement: it was an awful and painful experience. At the end of dinner, our fortune cookies arrive. I opened mine and the fortune read:

"Better to be alone than to be in bad company".

It was great advice in 1979 and it still applies today. And I never accepted a blind date after that. I never trusted my friend's judgement after that, either.

Some of these are hysterical!

My story is pretty lame in comparison. I was a freshman in college and went out with a guy who was a friend of a friend. We were on our 2nd date and we both knew it would be our last -- nothing terrible, we just didn't click.

So, he drives me back to my dorm. It's winter and icy out. I get out of the car, slip on some ice and fall flat on my ass. Not just my ass, my entire body was flat on the sidewalk. He came around to help me up, slipped and fell on top of me. We both laughed so hard I think I peed my pants a little.

Then he procedes to tell me that she is in the box between our seats. His wife was literally along for the ride on our date. Um, that was our last date.


He needed some serious therapy and sounds like he was not ready to date. Wow. That is just beyond strange. Why not leave them at home, Buddy!?

Online dating leads to a lot of bad first dates. The one that will always stand out in my mind was the finger licker guy.

He seemed nice enough and was willing to pay for dinner. Free food beats sitting at home watching reruns while my kids were with their Dad so why not? First he was late, claimed he couldn't find the place. He lived there! I didn't. Because he was late we opted to skip the movie and just do dinner. He ended up following me to the resturant (I was glad I didn't agree to one car). While we were there, he kissed the top of my hand and said he thought I had pretty hands. Then he started to suck on each finger I was too stunned to do anything right away. When he got to the last finger, I pulled my hand away and tried to figure out how the hell to get out of there asap.

I should've just got up and left but I didn't want to be rude so I ended up faking a text from my friend and telling him I had to go. When I got home, I blocked him from contacting me.

I ordered prime rib and got horseradish on the side. I didn't know what it was and ate a giant glob of it and nearly choked to death. The weird part was that my date didn't even notice.

We were both 15.

I went on a first date with a guy who I had known a while. He seemed like a great guy who had himself together... college grad and a decent job. He took me to dinner at Chedder's (moderatly priced, chain restraunt). Dinner was fine, conversation pretty good, things were going well. When the check came he gives the waitress a debit card and she brings it back and said it had been declined. He asked her to try it again. She comes back and says it was still declined and asked for another card. With the waitress standing there he pulls out his cell phone and calls HIS MOM and starts yelling at her for not putting money in his bank account. I was mortified, everyone at the surrounding tables was staring, and I think the waitress was so shocked she was just frozen. I start to pull out my wallet and try to tell him (he is still yelling at his mom) that I will be happy to pay for dinner. He tells me "You shouldn't have to do that... she should have taken care of this". I paid and turned him down for another date.

Another time I went out with a guy I had previously worked with. The guy was a nurse at a hospital and I worked in the same unit. We had always been really friendly and flirted with each other, but never dated because we worked together. After I quit he asked me out. When he came to pick me up he had obviously just left work and still had on his scrubs. He had come to pick me up on his motorcycle (the sport bike / crotch rocket type) and told me he didn't have an extra helmet and I would need to follow him. I offered to drive, but he said it would be easier if I followed him. So, I follow him to a restraunt. We actually had a great time - lots of fun and great coversation. He had a couple of drinks with dinner (I didn't) and went we left he said he didn't feel like he should drive his motorcycle and asked if I could drive him home. Of couse I agreed, I didn't want him to drive if he felt like he had too much to drink. As we are on his way to his house he tells me that this works out great because I can stay at his place and take him to get his motorcycle in the morning. I didn't do either.

My worst date was when I was in high school. I had a date with a guy I knew from another school. I had to work that day and told him I got off work at 6:00 and to pick me up at 7:00. I ended up with a horrible migraine and left work early to go home and take some medicine to try to get rid of it. Around 5:00 I was in the bathroom about to step in the shower when my aunt came to the door to tell me he was there to pick me up. Oooookay... forget the shower then. He said was driving by and saw my car at home and figured he'd go ahead and pick me up.
So, I went with him then even though I was irritated. He took me to Pizza Hut and asked what I liked on my pizza. I told him anything but sausage - I hated sausage on my pizza.
When the waitress came he ordered the pizza WITH SAUSAGE! I was so pissed! After HE finished eating I told him to take me home and I never spoke to him again.

I may have shared this here before. A coworker set me up with one of is friends. I had met the guy a few times when he came in the place we worked and he was nice enough so I agreed. We met at a pizza place for dinner. We are getting to know each other and I ask him what he likes to do, hobbies ,etc. he proceeds to tell me that he and his brother live together (mid 20s-early 30s age wise) and they like to pretend they are FBI agents. They get dressed in some kind of outfit they think makes them look like the FBI then drive around and act out a case. Did I want to join them? Uh.....no. No I didn't. And by the way my babysitter can't stay long so sorry but I have to get going. I dodged his calls for a couple weeks and didn't go out with him again.

My almost weird date...After I graduated high school and was going to college I worked at Wal-Mart. One day my former math teacher came in and asked me out! He told me how he had always wanted to ask me but decided to wait until after I graduated. He was one of my favorite teachers and i never got a creepy vibe from him but yuck! Within the next year he married another teacher at the school and was fired for looking at porn during class.

when we got to the restaurant, he orders a TON of food. i try to ask him some questions but he says "when i am training, i need to concentrate on my caloric intake. can you hold that thought til i finish eating". i said "umm, sure" and then he continues to eat and order *more* food. awkward silence until meal is over. end of date, tries to move for a kiss, no thanks.

he called me a week later and i said no, i had a lot going on in my life and wasn't interested. started a new job about a yr later and guess who gets in the elevator? had to see him every day for the next 5 or 6 yrs.

my friend made out with a guy on the first date and he asked her if he could put "it" in her ear. that was their last date. i said why, did "it" fit in your ear????

A guy took me out to the movies and when we got to the ticket window he bitched about how much the tickets cost and even asked the attendant of there was a cheaper theater in the area. I should have left then but I wanted to see the movie, hah. Then he told me if I wanted anything to drink or any snacks, I'd have to buy them myself. I don't mind paying my own way on a date but the way he said it was so rude!

He had his phone out and was texting during most of the movie but by sheer dumb luck he fell asleep with the phone on the arm rest. I waited a few minutes, deleted my phone number out of his contacts and left the theater! I called my brother to pick me up and I never heard from the guy ever again.

I have epilepsy. I had a seizure on a date once. That would have been awkward enough, but the guy started shouting, "In the name of Jesus Christ, I REBUKE you demons! I command you to leave this woman's soul at once!"

When I was in college I was asked to a dance by a guy a couple of years younger than I was. We didn't really know each other that well, but I thought he seemed nice.

He called me up that afternoon and demanded I find a date for his friend or we wouldn't go. One of my roommates was free, and agreed to this blind date. I thought it was strange they picked us up so late for this dance since there wouldn't be time to eat before. I was told we would eat afterwards.

Unfortunately, after the dance most places were closed, so my date suggested we go back to campus and order pizza. At this point I was starving, so we agreed. After a lovely dinner of Dominos (that the guys paid for, but were clearly unhappy we didn't give any $$) the lights were lowered and the next thing I knew I heard noises from the other side of the room.

Sex noises. OMG. I had no clue what was the proper etiquette was for this type of situation. Was I supposed to leave her there? Wait until they were finished? Score them? Give a standing ovation? I finally decided to ignore it until it was over and get away at the first opportunity.

I hear the guy finish and he got up, pulled on a pair of jeans and walked over to the pizza box and helped himself to another slice like it was normal to have an audience when you have sex with a girl you just met a few hours ago.

I was just I got out of there as quickly as I could and never spoke to my date again.



May you always be overwhelmed by the Grace of God rather than by the cares of life.

I think my strangest date is:

He was a vendor that dropped off cargo where I worked (at the airlines). I worked the customer service department for the cargo area. The only thing was he smelled like fish because he worked for a fish company... so of course he asked me out and I had reservations because of the fish thing but thought well surely the guy showers after work. Which he does and he smelled fine.

So he shows up for our first date and it goes well. He has a nice car and we go for a nice dinner.. Nothing weird.. So we go on a second date.. he shows up in this horrible beater car that is awful.. rusted out, no paint, interior torn up and trashed.... I asked him where his car was and he tells me he borrowed his sister's car for our first date. I managed the second date and that was it.

After that, I just couldn't go out with him again.. between the fish thing and the beater car, it just grossed me out.

Another guy, another vendor, we go out and it is fine, except he liked to go shirtless riding around in his jeep. He didn't even have a nice chest... that didn't last either.. LOL

Went out with a guy from match.com; we met at TGIF for drinks. After about an hour the power went out. He invites me to his place to get in the hottub. I said we could just go to the next bar down the way but he said no he really wanted to get in the hottub. I said no thanks it's getting late (ha ha it wasn't late!) He emailed the next day and asked if I wanted to go "out" again. He didn't really want to go out he wanted me to come over and get in his hot tub! That was the end of that.

There was another match.com guy in the same time period. We talked for hours. Past relationships came up; he talked about his on and off relationship with a French woman (I think he was trying to impress me)and I told him about the break up with my cheating BF a year prior. A couple days later he left me voice mail saying that since relationships come down to sleeping together he didn't think that we should see each other anymore because my BF had cheated and I could possibly have an STD. I sent an email asking him what made him think I would even consider sleeping with him after his on and off and on and off again relationship with his French now and again GF. A few years later he contacted me on match again; I said no thanks we have already met. He came back quite angrily with something about not knowing because my photo was so small he couldn't see my face. What a case.

Mine seems like something next to some of these. I have food allergies. It's not a big deal to me. We were out ordering and the guy gets all weird acting and tells me he will order for me since it is so embarrassing to order special meals. Huh? I'm fine with it. Anyway, he order and in the loudest voice possible "and No __ on hers because she is aaallllergiiiic". Ok, this allergy free order embarrassed me.

This was not me, but my friend that this happened to.

After they went for a drink he invited her back to his house and asked her if she was hungry.

He said he only had hot dogs, so she said fine.

He came back into the room with a plate containing the hot dog, in a bun with ketchup on the top.

When she tried to take it she realised the "hot dog" part was actually his penis in a bun.

That was the end of that relationship.

When she came back to take our order, he gave his and asked "are you sure you can get that right?". I then proceeded to order the most expensive entree I possibly could and added a bunch of sides. It was a filet and lobster tail type meal. I waited a few minutes n allowed him to explain "you have to be firm with those who serve you" and excused myself to the Restroom.

I passed the waitress and apologized profusely for his behavior, explained the first date and told her I was leaving. She said to wait a second and packed up all the food I ordered and gave it to me to go and let me out the back door.

I started receiving texts shortly after asking if I was ok "in there" and I ignored them. About 25 minutes later, I got a nasty text telling me I owed him $64 for my meal. I text him that maybe next time he'd be a little nicer to those who who wait on him.

And dang that lobster was GOOD!

Whew, really lots of "testimonials" for match.com here LOL.

When I was a teenager, a guy invited me to see a band we both liked at a pretty large venue. Picked me up smelling of peach brandy, of all things? Being young & dumb, I went anyway. After we'd been there a while, he insisted we move down to some better, vacant seats closer to the floor. Not surprisingly, we were sternly invited to return to the seat for which we'd paid, with my stupid date loudly slurring protests to not avail, which only made the security guys tell him he was a step away from being escorted from the building.
So what does he do but pull from his pants a bong the length of his thigh??!! Holy smokes--I hissed at him to put that thing away before we got arrested, at which point he leaned over & vomited on my shoes, after which he wiped his mouth on his arm & said, "I love you." Touching.
Ten years later, I was visiting my sister in Atlanta (many states away), & we went out for some nightlife. Who but this goon should be tending bar? Yeah, he remembered me. I recounted the story above, & he seemed hurt, saying, "THAT'S what you remember about me?" Well, it's not as if he had won a Pulitzer that I was overlooking. (Eye roll)
Remind me to hug my DH extra big when he gets home.

I went out with a guy on New Year's Eve. He was the cousin of one of my sister's friends. He was nice and kind of cute. I don't know a soul at this New Year's Eve party he brings me to, but it was kind of fun - nice people.

He proceeds to get absolutely hammered. Ridiculously, sloppy, falling down drunk. He leans in to kiss me at midnight? (I'm really over him at this point - he's kind of gross, actually) and throws up on me. All over me.

Boozy McGee is now passed out. So, I need to find a ride home. From a room full of strangers. And I'm covered in vomit.

This one couple agree to drive me home, but I have to sit in the back of the station wagon with the window down because I smell so awful. It's New Year's Eve in New York. It's probably 10 degrees outside.

He calls me the next morning. Not to apologize but to tell me that he has never been that drunk before and it was only because he hadn't eaten anything but a cheese sandwich all day.

WTF? I told him to lose my number. Bleck. I think I can still smell that throwup.
