Taylor, early twenties, sexy young something, opens the door… And those were the words that Alex sent her prior to their first date in the script he wrote as an invitation to date him. The story only gets cuter: Alex was coming off of a disturbing novelty mullet, they went dancing at a gay club, and then Alex had new keys made for his car. Days later, they ate pasta together. After crossing that bridge, it was only a matter of time before they were married….4 months later. But how did they STAY married? It involves pasta. Or does it…?
