Derek aka The Nerd
In His Words:
My daddy left home when I was three and he didn’t leave much to ma and me, just this old guitar and an empty bottle of booze. Now, I don’t blame him cause he run and hid but the meanest thing that he ever did was before he left, he went and named me “Derek.” Well, I grew up quick and I grew up mean, my fist got hard and my wits got keen. I’d roam from town to town to hide my shame. But I made a vow to the moon and stars that I’d search the honky-tonks and bars and kill that man who gave me that awful name.
A Few Deets:
Derek was actually “referred” to me by someone who follows me on Twitter – @TheRachelG – who thought Derek desperately needed a date, so sent him my way. Mini reminder: if you refer a date to me, I’ll send you a piece of swag of your choice! Who doesn’t want food truck undies?!
Derek says his friends would describe him as awesome, nerdy and chill, his favorite band is The Decemberists, and his favorite food is Mediterranean. His hidden talent is napping and he’d rather sleep in a hotel and drink PBR than camp and drink cabernet. Nothing like a good old hotel stay with a bathtub full of PBR!
Forgive me, dear lovers, for I am monthhssss behind on writing about my dates. Derek and I actually went on a St. Patrick’s Day Date at SoMa StrEatFood Park. Stay tuned for green beers and nerdy conversation in Food Truck Date #16…
