How to be a gentleman in a stampede…
Dear Blog Guy,
You seem to know quite a bit about unusual social situations. I’ve asked a nice girl to go with me to run with the bulls. Any tips on what chicks expect on a date like this?
Yes, there are some rules of etiquette. For instance, notice this guy, who seems about to be squashed. His right arm offers firm support for the young woman, as he averts his gaze from her turquoise panties that are riding up. He makes diplomatic smalltalk about where they might go to dinner later, if chewing is still an option for them.
Of course, there is some chance that he’s just grabbing her to fling her behind him, hoping she will slow the bull down by a nanosecond and he can save his own miserable life. If you pull that stunt, do not expect a good-night kiss.
