On the public phone at the corner of Canal Street and N. Carrollton Avenue, there's an ad for Love Quest, a “free off-line blind dating service created to inspire romance.” Now, I’m not a single gal, but as the daughter of a flower child and the soul sister of Lisa Simpson, I had to check it out. One doesn’t take her fiancé into consideration when there are unicorns involved.
“But where do the unicorns come in?!” I asked myself.
Upon my arrival at Gambit HQ, I called the number listed on the poster (504-233-XOXO) in hopes of finding the unicorns, or at least helping my friends get chocolate, champagne and a date. No such luck — just a 1-900 number-sounding voicemail.
The lusty tone on the voicemail made me wonder if unicorns were some sort of secret symbol. I Googled “unicorns dating” and uncovered the truth: a “unicorn” is a single female who attends swinger parties in hopes of scoring a threesome or group sex. She’s called a unicorn because a chick like that is as rare as a unicorn.
Color me disappointed. No unicorns, no chocolate, no champagne — only a threesome.
