My Very Last Blind Date Ever!!!

A much older cousin of mine said she knew a nice woman with a son who wanted to meet a bright young girl. Although I had never liked the notion of blind dates, I agreed just to please my cousin. The young man had planned the date, but certainly not with me in mind. He took me to a play…a very “talky” 3-hour drama with a single stage set and the dialogue entirely in Russian (a language in which I only know “thank you” and “oh, my god”)! I fell asleep by the middle of the first act and pleaded a splitting headache by the middle of the third. He then took me for dinner at a restaurant where we waited for service for an hour while he regaled me with virtually incomprehensible descriptions of his intricate engineering work in highly technical jargon and with diagrams drawn on several napkins. Even the food was poor (despite the fact that I was now hungry enough to eat nearly anything). I have never been so glad to be finally dropped off at my door!!!
