What if... he didn't show up? What if... I decided not to answer my door?
Seven years ago, today, Mike showed up 25 minutes late for our blind date. Can you imagine how mad I was when he hadn't showed up by 10 minutes late? By 15 minutes late, and there was no phone call?? By 20 minutes...
I was told for almost two months that a friend of mine had someone he wanted me to meet. I was less than thrilled. I received a call from my friend on Thanksgiving that year saying this guy agreed to meet me, but I was in Arizona visiting my parents. I told him I would call later that weekend.
I get a call on Wednesday, December 4, 2002 from some guy named Mike. I had no idea who he was. It turned out to be the guy my friend was trying to set me up with. We scheduled a Monday early dinner. This is where it gets good.
Why a Monday? He tells me a few years later that it was because he didn't want to ruin his weekend if things didn't go well.
How early of a dinner? He was supposed to meet me at 4:30pm. Why? Because he didn't want to ruin his entire evening if things didn't go well.
Why was he so late? He decided he wasn't going to show up! I guess his conscience got the best of him to not leave me hanging, but he could have at least called to say how late he was running and could have used Dallas traffic as a believable excuse.
So, What if he didn't come? What if he was any later, would I have answered the door? .
