Burlesque Juice Date


I had a lunch date, well a pre-lunch date.

There was a girl off OkCupid who wanted to meet up and so we did.

I did think about cocktails but I didn’t want to drink because 11am on a school day is a little bit too early for me. Or at least it is at the moment.

She doesn’t drink coffee or tea and it’s a bit too warm for hot chocolate so I suggested we meet for juice.

You know, one of those slightly pretentious juice places with wheat-grass on the menu. Don’t hate the player, hate the game.

She was late (-5 points) and lost (-5 points)  so I had to leave our meeting point to hunt her down. She walked past me on the street, so I had to jump after her waving (-5 points) and then call her on the phone.

She was tall, with mousey blond shoulder length hair. Brown eyes and a hint of freckles. She was wearing a rather short denim dress (+5 points) with tan heels. There were legs  (+10 points).

Anyone for juice?

We went to the juice bar and ordered our drinks. She had a banana based one and I had one with lots of bits in and some wheat-grass. My juice was pretty crunchy for a juice but nice.

It definitely tasted healthy, even if none of the health claims could actually be backed up with any sort of actual scientific evidence.

We talked about jobs, London and hobbies. All the usual stuff. She has recently taken up Burlesque but has no plans to present a show. It’s just for fun. I learned that when you start doing Burlesque you take on a Burlesque name. I still don’t know why but I like the idea.

She is mid-job hunt but has also decided to ‘make a project’ of sorting out her private life. I liked her focused attitude on this. I was briefly tempted to mention the blog but decided against it.

The date lasted about an hour, which pretty good for a single juice and we parted ways. There is a vague plan to meet up again. We shall see. With Biscuit storming ahead in the lead I have to get my act together.

Marriage percentage: 20% We got on, she was nice but juice dates are weird. How are you supposed to get drunk and reveal too much about yourself?

    You saying “don’t hate the player, hate the game” is my favorite part of this post. Now if you will excuse me, I am off to the other side of the interwebz to find out what my Burlesque name is.
