( 10:19 PM ) teahouse
Over the weekend I went out for a Ladies Night with some other women from my martial arts school.
We went downtown and had dinner in an uber-trendy restaurant, followed by cocktails in an even more uber-trendy bar.
Everyone in my group, except for me, was a black belt. A couple of us were married, but the rest were single and in their early to mid-30s.
While at the bar, we were standing around when we became aware of two middle-aged (in their 40s) men standing next to us, loudly discussing a date that one of them recently went on.
"Yeah, it went ok," the man said. "It started off well, but then, I found out that she's actually 34!"
"Oh, no! Dude!" exclaimed the other man, shuddering.
"Yeah," replied the first man. "And after I found that out, I wanted to get out of there. But I still had to pay, like a hundred and twenty bucks for dinner!"
We all had to exit the bar quickly, lest we start beating up these guys.
Because as we've all learned, martial arts are for DEFENSE only. Not for overpowering scrawny men who piss us off. #
