Speed Dating

“So this was your bright idea?  Speed Dating 101?”


“Come on, you can’t be serious?”

“Why not?  It’s Saturday night and neither of us has a date.”

“And so?”

“And so, it’ll be fun.”

“Fun for who?”

“For the both of us.  It’s only five rounds. Five minutes each.  The bell marks the end of round.  There is a mixer after the final round where you can talk to someone who may have sparked your interest.  Or leave and go home.”

“And the cups are for what exactly?”

“It’s just water, you know for drinking.  Talking to people actually works up a thirst.  You should try it sometime.”

“Or not because talking to you always exhaust me.”

“Come on, Shelly.  What have we got to lose by giving this a try?”

“I don’t know: our dignity!”

“Don’t be so dramatic.  This is long overdue.  You need to get back out there.  It’s been two years.”

“I know, Aimee.”

“He’s not coming back.”

“I know.  Let’s do this!”
