Today’s #maydays prompt a bit of dating
It’s a date.
With a real woman.
I’m beside myself with excitement,
And a bag of nerves at the same time.
What to wear?
Where to take her?
Thankfully she is my age
Plenty to talk about, childhood stories might work?
Oh I don’t know I’m all bound up with thinking about it.
She’ll look sensational I know
She looks so beautiful
She could turn up in her work clothes and I’ll be drooling.
What if I get stuck for words?
What if I say the wrong thing?
I know I can be a bit rash and abrupt at times.
Keep your mouth shut is what Watto said,
Think about what you are going to say
Keep your foot out of your mouth.
Say to yourself it’s going to ok.
She gorgeous, she’s intelligent
She’s probably as worried as you about this date.
Oh why did I ever let myself get into this situation?
It’s a good example of keeping my mouth shut
Should have stuck to the small talk
The barnyard and the weather as my mum used to say.
What if she thinks I’m a prize ignoramus?
That I haven’t a brain to bless myself with
What if she says hello, has a good look and then runs off
The embarrassment, the awkwardness.
I can’t think negatively
It will be ok
After all we are going to the best restaurant in town
What can go wrong there?
I have to get myself together
She expects me in twenty minutes
And I have to select a tie
The red or the green, the black or the polka dot?
Bugger it the blue, its warm and welcoming
I have everything, money, hanky,
Deodorant and after shave
I can’t fail.
Deep breath and off I go…
