After a night of fettuccine alfredo, fried lasagna bites, and unlimited soup, salad, and breadsticks, wheelchair-using bachelor Chris Peterson executed a clever move in front of his date, Kristy Matthews.
When the waiter brought the check, Peterson, who is paralyzed from a spinal cord injury, reached for his wallet to grab his credit card. But first he nonchalantly revealed the Trojan BareSkin condom (strawberry flavored) he had stored in the wallet’s left-side pocket.
“I figured that she was wondering if I could, ya know, and I wanted to subtly imply that I could, ya know?” said Peterson.
“I figured that she was wondering if I could, you know, and I wanted to subtly imply that I could, ya know?” said Peterson.
Upon seeing a peek of the familiar gold foil wrapper, Matthews felt conflicted inside. “My first thought when seeing it was an enthusiastic ’Great!’ But my next thought was a less enthusiastic ’Great,’ because after more contemplation, I don’t even really care for ’that’ all that much.”
Later in the evening Peterson revisited his wallet to show Matthews a picture of his golden retriever, and again awkwardly fiddled with the $1.99 contraceptive as he pulled out the small photograph, lingering on the prophylactic for at least two full seconds.
“I didn’t really understand why he was showing me the dog pictures, since his dog was sitting right next to us in his living room, but whatever I guess. He seemed like a nice guy, so I didn’t question it.”
The date continued smoothly, until it ended abruptly in the emergency room after Matthews suffered a severe allergic reaction due to her strawberry allergy.
