"It's not a mullet," Annie replies. "He just has a few wispy pieces of hair in the back."
"That's a mullet, mom," Marly argues. "And a bald guy with a mullet, that's as bad as you can get."
In Lisa Lenzo’s Strange Love, divorcee and mom Annie Zito is always trying to justify her latest bad date. Lenzo, a Saugatuck native, says the story is partially autobiographical.
"I would come home from a date with somebody and think, 'I've got to write this down," says Lenzo. "This is just hysterical and sad and funny all at once."
