Here we go again

19 Aug

I’ve been up since 5am on account of a very, very important prospective client coming in. The very, very important prospective client left at noon, and I’ve been running around the office since trying to sort things out and catch up on everything I haven’t been doing while I was preparing for the very, very important prospective client. 

Now, it’s nearly 5.30pm, and how I wish I was heading home to eat fish fingers and watch Real Housewives. 

But I have a date tonight. And it’s too late to cancel. 

C (we will call him “C”) lives in South London (boo). Works in tech for a bank (hmm). And has quite good chat. 

This is our first date. We met on the eHarmony. 

He has booked a table for sushi at 8.30. 8.30. So late for me on a school night. What am I supposed to do until 8.30?

He has booked it at a place in Covent Garden. Hmm. Never had a date anywhere near Covent Garden that went well. Tourists, anyone?

Oh well, here goes nothing.

    If nothing else, you get a meal out of it. Unless he makes you pay for yours, in which case there isn’t going to be a second date anyway. Good luck!

    I ate in Convent Garden when I visited London, but only after I walked through Princess Diana’s Park 🙂 It’s because I’m a tourist…isn’t it? Enjoy your free meal, have a great conversation, and enjoy your couples hours of alone time to make up for getting up at 5am.

      See. This is exactly what I thought …. free meal. Can you believe this sh*t???
