Catastrophic Date #1

A Scene in Texts...

Me: Want to still have dinner tonight?

Him: Yes, I really want to. But I can't. Family emergency. My uncle died.

Me: Oh My God! I'm so sorry. I hope you and your family are doing as well as can possibly be expected during this truly tough time. Please, if there is anything that a stranger like me can do, let me do it.

Him: Sorry to be a buzzkill.

Me: No! Please! Not at all. If you want to get together, whenever that may be, I'd like to. Or not. Whatever you are feeling.

Him: No, I'm being a buzzkill.

Me: Er, okay, well again, I'm really sorry about your uncle.

Him: It's OK. I'll be seeing him again real soon.


Me: Aaaaaah! What! Dude!
