Popping Octopus Skulls

Thirteen years ago, when I finally secured that first date with the woman who would become my wife, I took her out to a sushi joint. Nothing like sushi to casually impress the ladies, as long as you know ahead of time that they like/don't mind it.

Sushi is manly...knifes, fatty fish, dexterous hand skills, etcetera. And it impresses the ladies.

What is manly, but does NOT impress the ladies, is eating a baby octopus (as pictured below), then describing the sweet popping of the cartilage skull when your date expresses discomfort with your choice of food. Of course, that was what I did.

I ended up marrying her, but it took a stupid long time.
