A single woman struggles to get through yet another Saturday night that threatens to be ruined by a blind date.
This story is included in the Essence of Humour collection
Ugh. Another Saturday night, and another blind date. Like the cigarettes I always stashed in my car, men were a bad habit I hadn’t been able to give up. Each time I allowed my friends to set me up with a male relative or acquaintance, I hovered between anticipation of the unknown, and fear of the same. Tonight most likely wouldn’t be much different.
