I was out on a date with a wonderful young man who began to tell me about a movie I have not seen - rib sauce covering his face and all. I love when he tells me about movies because he gets so excited and uses such vivid descriptions.
My brain responded with: "Can I just tell you I love it when you tell me about movies?!"
My mouth responded with: "Can I just tell you I love you?"
I immediately began laughing hysterically, not knowing what to do to cover this mother-of-all awkward slips.
I vaguely heard him quip, "Wow, with rib sauce all over my face and everything?"
We both got a good laugh, no one freaked out, and now I have an awesome story to tell:-)
