Blind Date

Candle light dinner - blind date joke

She was sitting alone at the table, wearing a red rose in her lapel - the agreed sign.  I kept my rose in my pocket, waiting.  I wanted to scout the scene first, see what Ellie123 looked like.  After all, I didn't want to spend the evening with a complete dog.  No, life was too short, and my image too fragile.

To my delight she looked fairly attractive.  Petite, blonde, soft eyes - she would do.  The glasses were a bit of a turn off, though.  I hoped she wasn't the bookish type.

In the end I decided to risk it.  Putting my rose in my lapel, I sauntered over and smiled, flashing my new white smile.

"Ellie123?"

She looked up startled, no doubt at my good looks, but then regaining her composure, looked me up and down appraisingly.  I felt violated, I tell you, but waited patiently.

Then she smiled and said, "No, I think you must have the wrong person.  I'm waiting for someone else."
