Smitten

Story Sent in by Stan:

Cathy liked stained glass windows. On the afternoon of our first date, she asked me if I wanted to browse a few in some local churches. Neither she nor I were particularly religious, but it was cold out and it struck me as unusual and fun.

When we entered the very first church, we browsed the windows and then strolled down the main aisle. Then she slapped my shoulder and said, "Tag! Catch me if you can!"

She then bolted down the aisle and tripped and fell right onto her face! It was pretty funny.

Well, for a second or two. Until I realized that she was crying and her mouth was bleeding a lot. I gave her a clean towel from my car to help her stop the bleeding and I sat with her until she was better.

She seemed pretty embarrassed but I did my best to downplay it. We were done hanging out after that, though. She went straight home.

A couple of days later, I texted her to see how she was.

Someone texted back, "Cathy's dead. Sorry."

I was taken aback, but when I went online to check out her dating site profile, it had been updated since we had gone out together, and has been updated since. So watch out. Your next date out there might be with a ghost.

  1. Last line = Lame
    I liked the date idea, liked that she was playful (although tag in a church is not appropriate) and liked the OP for getting the towel and staying with her. Then she has to go and be all like "Cathy's DEAD!" And the OP leaves us with that limp-wristed line at the end.

    Just sad. To make it all better, I present this.....
