How about a date?

Life never fails to entertain me. When the cute boy handing out samples in the grocery store asked me if I wanted a date, the normal response would have been to take the fruit and walk away. But language is funny. Words, humorous. Definitions, laughable. Whose idea was it to have several things have the same name? Didn't they know this would cause problems? I don't know about other languages, but English and Spanish are definitely guilty. When a small squiggly line is the difference between being 19 years old and having 19 anuses, there is a problem. Just take the fruit, and walk away.
