Song and Dance

Submitted by Nicholas:

Elaine and I arranged to meet up for a dinner date.  The first question she asked me when we sat down to dinner was, "Have you ever cheated on a girlfriend?"

I told her I hadn't, and it was true.  She asked, "Really?  You're not just saying that?"

"Really.  Never have."

"Are you lying?"

"No," I said again, patiently, "And I would never cheat on someone like you."

"What do you mean, 'Someone like me'?  What's the matter with me?"

I said, "Nothing.  I'd never cheat on you."

She rolled her eyes and said, "I've heard that song and dance before."

After dinner, she asked me to go clothes shopping with her.  I went along, thinking that it wouldn't take too long, but we must have walked into every store at the local mall.

After some time, I asked her if she could finish up shopping.  She said, "What?  Have another date after this one?  You'll wait."

I told her that I was going into an electronics store a little across the way, to wait for her to finish.  She then said, "No!  We're on a date.  You don't leave me."

I said, "So if this wasn't a date, I'd be allowed to leave, then?"

She nodded, and so I said, "Great.  Goodbye," and left.

She followed me into the mall.  "What the are you doing?" she asked, "You don't leave a girl in the middle of a date."

"I don't want to date you," I said, "Now let me go."

I continued walking, and she didn't follow me anymore.


  1. she was so impressed with your awesomeness, she lost her ability to follow.

  2. So you left her in Victoria's Secret to go to EB Games????
