On Monday night I was to have a date with Sharon. However at work I got into an argument with my boss and so that I would not commit boss-icide, I left early and really did not want to meet anyone. I guess that if I had clobbered my boss, his boss would have fired me.
I phoned Sharon and told her I was not feeling well and asked if we could postpone. She accepted. I did not tell her why. Who wants to date someone who is in a bad mood. Hey, not me. Although I have been know to turn bad moods around!
After a strenuous workout session, I called her up and made plans for Tuesday. Hey, she said yes, so don’t say, “I wouldn’t have done that.” I told you I had luck.
Tuesday we arranged to meet at 9:30pm. I left work at 8:30pm, to shower, shave etc and get to my car. I had the mother of all flat tires. The area was pitch black and I was the only one around, still dressed in work attire!
Oops I have a date! I called Sharon and told her the story and of course, I heard some disbelief. I did offer to send her a picture of the tire. “Well”, Sharon said “Fix the tire and call me back and we will see.” Cool! She was being accommodating.
Despite what women think, men do not come with instruction manuals on how to fix things. I have reached the ripe old age of MYOB (Mind Your Own Business) without changing a flat tire. Did I mention that I was in the area alone and it was pitch black? Where is Buffy when you need her?
iPhone flashlight to the rescue! I managed to replace the tire but I was now filthy dirty and not smelling so good. Ewwww, I wouldn’t even want to get in the car with me.
I called up Sharon wanting to cancel, but decided to meet her anyway, after a shower of course. Of course if I had cancelled, she would never have answered my call again. “Rightly so,” you will probably say. But Sharon met me and the first date went quite well and guess what there was even a second date.
People if you have a date, leave work early enough to avoid a Lawrence disaster. I told you I had more luck than brains!
