Today, my date came to pick me up for a date. As I was getting into his car, a large blister on my foot burst. My foot is now swimming in a pool of hot, liquid pus. FML

Szaszaspasz tells us more.

Hi! It's the OP. The blister formed earlier in the day because of a new pair of running shoes I was breaking in. The blister didn't seem too bad, but it got filled up as the day progressed. As I got into the car, it burst. I never let on because my shoes were not open-toes. The date was great, we went to Pizza Hut, but I got tomato sauce on my outfit. I'm a klutz FML This was in 1990. I was too nervous to run back up to my barracks and do something about the blister. I was 19 at the time.

If it was just as you were getting into the car, couldn't you have explained the situation and ran into the house for a bandage or something?

what happened after that?

maybe "hot, liquid pus" was a metaphor for the rest of the night? ;)

I wanna know the guys reaction too.

Ew gross, sorry OP

Did that burst his bubble?

I kept thinking of the dirty bubble from SpongeBob.

That's sucks to hear...but I hope the date went well anyway!

It was probably too embarrassing to tell the truth, and it would have looked bad if she lied to try and get out of the date the second it was about to start

Yes, although OP probably should have excused him/herself to go to the bathroom

I always think the honest way (or the closest to it) is the best way. Even if they just said that there is something digging into their foot and they wish to quickly change their shoes.

"Excuse me, but I think my pet tarantula crawled into my shoe before I put it on, so I'll be right back!"

Oooh talk about bursting your bubble, ouch.

I hope you excused yourself and went back inside to change shoes.

Think of it as a nice bowl of hot, soapy water soaking your foot to relieve your stress.

I wonder how the rest of the date went

Gotta get some comfy shoes that don't give u blisters then.
