High Five Goodbye

High Five Goodbye

At the end of their first date, April and Ben are parting ways when instead of a kiss, Ben goes in for an awkward high-five. In that moment a piece of ultra-sticky gum falls from the sky cementing their hands together. Fate just made this date a whole lot longer.
