Sometimes dates don’t go as you plan.

Ethan Cole decided to share his date disaster with us here at Howl.
Happy Valentine’s Day, and better luck next time, man.

We arrive at the movies. I buy the tickets and snacks. I’m starting to feel good on how this date is going, and about 15 minutes in, I stopped paying attention to the movie because I’m focusing on trying to pull a move. I won’t lie, I was nervous. I raise my hand to do the classic yawn-move and right at that moment I’m turned around halfway and I see my date’s mom is sitting right behind us. She snuck in after us! Who does that!?

Ethan locked eyes with stalker-mom and slowly retracted his arm.
The moral of the story: Don’t yawn unless it’s real.
