Overheard at Starbucks . . .
Girl barista: A date is a pre-planned occasion to spend time together and learn more about each other.
Guy barista (er, baristo?) #1: A date is shelling out some cash and hoping to get to make out at the end of the night.
Guy barista #2: A date is spending enough time with a girl to figure out whether or not she's crazy.
You decide who's right.
