Trying to impress girls with restaurants
Things were a bit weird on Monday with Mia after our first kiss on Thursday. Sort of stilted and awkward. It was not fun at all.
It was all the sorts of weird that we both wanted to avoid.
Today (Tuesday) things were better, perhaps we had got over the weird bump or perhaps snow just has that sort of effect on people. Snow is great.
Anyway, since we were back to joking with each other and the fact she was looking absolutely amazing I was driven to action. Seriously, if you had seen the slinky wool dress she was wearing today you would completely understand.
So I decided to email her to see if she was still up for going to a restaurant. I chose email because I didn’t want to have to try to lure her into a side room to ask her in private and all that.
Anyway here is the email conversation in full, edited lightly to take names out.
Toast: I’ve had a dig around and I think I’ve found the perfect restaurant that serves ‘lots of meat’, so would you care to join me for supper?
Mia: Ah I’d love to but I’m having dinner at my friend’s tonight, house-warming festive drinks etc. Lot’s of meat does sound ridiculously good though…
Toast: Well shall we co-ordinate diaries and find a free day?
Mia: Yes. Are you around for work drinks on Friday?
Toast: Yes, yes I am.
Mia: Cool, lets chat then x
So not a complete blow out, but not a raging success either. I think the following characters express it best
