reports that Cingular Wireless is preparing to debut an Escape-a-Date feature on its phones. It will allow you to prearrange a phone call to interrupt you during a date, providing you with a convenient out, should it be necessary. Excuse messages offered up will include "my friend is having some trouble with superglue and needs some help"
and "my friend was looking in his fridge and found some pudding that's shaped like Elvis."
That second thing about Elvis really happened to me, except it wasn't pudding. It was a potato chip
