I Think It Was a Date

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 18 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

I’m not really quite sure what sparked the idea:

Andrew Ferguson: would you be interested in seeing a movie tonight?
Laura L: yeah, like a late one?
Andrew Ferguson: what ever works for you
Andrew Ferguson: personally I want to go see Saw II
Andrew Ferguson: last showing is at 10:35 at UA Denver West 12
Laura L: that’s looks freaky…in a good way
Andrew Ferguson: lol
Andrew Ferguson: yes it does
Laura L: brb
Laura L: sorry i’m back
Laura L: yeah 10 35 sounds good
Laura L: i kinda want to get out of the apt while amy and kevin are here too…give them a little time alone
Andrew Ferguson: lol
Andrew Ferguson: sounds good
Laura L: do you need a ride?
Andrew Ferguson: maybe
Andrew Ferguson: it seems rather impractical for you to drive all the way over here and back (twice) when the theater is right by your place
Laura L: yeah it does, can you bribe someone with a car to come along?
Andrew Ferguson: I’m going to ask my roommate if I can borrow his car.
Andrew Ferguson: he’s not going anywhere tonight
Laura L: nifty
Andrew Ferguson: yes
Laura L: alright i’m off, give me a call and let me know if you need a ride, if not, i’ll meet you at like 1030?
Andrew Ferguson: sounds good
Laura L: is that the theatre on the qdoba side or the chipotle side?
Andrew Ferguson: don’t know
Andrew Ferguson: how about i just meet you at your place and then we can go from there?
Laura L: sounds good
Laura L: see you then

Oxford English Dictionary defines “date” as such:

date, n.2:
c. An appointment or engagement at a particular time, freq. with a person of the opposite sex; a social activity engaged in by two persons of opposite sex. Cf. blind date. Also attrib. colloq.

d. A person of the opposite sex with whom one makes or has made an appointment or engagement. colloq. (orig. and chiefly U.S.).

So yes, I think that it counts as a date.
