More often than not, I'd rather go to lunch outside of my workcenter than bringing my lunch here and sitting in cubicle hell for any longer than I have to... eating... alone... *gack*. So, I'll go to my workcenter bro and ask him if he wants to grab lunch... or vice versa and we GO! It's always an adventure, "Where do you want to eat today?" "I dunno, I picked last time" "I PICKED LAST TIME!!" "**** YOU! Let's just go to Burger King" "I'd rather eating a dying prostitute" "Fine... Panera? Quiznos? Hooters?" "Uhhh... let's just go to Burger King" Then... I met someone who mocked our lunch excursions. Coming back from lunch he queried, "How was your bro-date? Are you guys going to the movies tonight too?" I was floored, bro-date? Hmm... what's wrong with that? When I go on a business trip, I'll have lunch/dinner with whoever I'm with, be they male or female. Outside of the workcenter, I've been on quite a few "bro-dates" with my friends, we laugh, tell stories about women and plan our next victims. All fun guy stuff... but this person was disgusted by the idea. He said something to the effect of, "I'd never go on a bro-date, that's gay". Bro... a bro date is not gay. A bro date is something that tightens the bonds between brothers from another mother. It works towards a goal, a goal of the opposite of gay, for whatever sense that kinda makes but really doesn't make. I think that a person who doesn't go on bro dates and ONLY hangs out with his wife is worse than us... he is wifey-whipped... and that's truly a shameful situation to be in. I'm going to buy him a ball gag.
