Elna Baker tells a great story about trying to meet guys when you’re a Mormon who is waiting until marriage… (she meets an atheist along the way. It doesn’t quite work out.)
Baker is also the writer of one of my favorite stories *ever* from This American Life — the one about working at FAO Schwartz and trying to sell minority dolls to white, upper-class mothers who wanted nothing to do with them.
(And I’m gonna marry her eventually.)
Her own dating adventures remind me… at some point, I should really tell the story of the one time I accidentally went on a date with a midget…
