Poem: The Blind Date


Here I sit waiting for a date setup
By a friend’s friend no less
Lured me here with obvious lies
Of having dinner with a goddess.


Why did I agree to this?
This would be the last time I say yes
To things I have no control of
He could very well be a psycho.


He thinks: She looks hot and f*ckable.

She thinks: I have been misled. He is just average looking. Let’s hope pray that he has a great personality.


He says: You look beautiful.
She says: I just came straight from work, and did not have time to change.

She thinks: I am over-explaining again. Stop it. Just stay cool and accept the compliment. Pretend you get compliments all the time.
She says: Thank you. Very kind of you to say so.


He thinks: I don’t really care, but I will pretend to listen.

So, they both sat and start to look over the menus.
Under their breath, they silently curse their respective friends for setting them up on this stupid blind date. At the same time, they berate themselves for agreeing to come in the first place.


He says: So, what you would like to order?

And they both think: Hmm…what’s the fastest meal on this menu? This will be the shortest blind date in the history of blind dates.

      Thank you for your very kind words, RC. Could not have done it without you. Hope all is well with you. Occupied with life is not such a bad thing. Living life well takes a lot of work and attention! Take good care, my dear. 🙂

    This was a lot of fun. It’s so humorous because it’s so real. 🙂

      It is mainly because I am self-hosted. Hence, many of the usual WP functions are not available through self-hosted platforms. Thanks for dropping a comment. Hope all is well with you. 🙂
