Mixed Stories

Today we had a very fun activity in conversation class. We completed one part of the story of a blind date. Then, we folded the paper over and passed it to the person next to us. At the end, we had some very interesting stories.

A Blind Date

Story 1

In a preparation for my blind date last week, I had decided to wear a wonderful dress, totally sparkle. Also, I wore high heels. My necklace was very chic and my earrings were oversized. As an ice-breaker, I had to bought my date a bottle of champagne and two crystal glasses. I wrapped them carefully. We had arranged to meet in my favorite restaurant. It is an Italian restaurant.

When I arrived, I couldn’t believe my eyes. My date was wearing a fluorescent baseball cap turned backwards on his head, a loud sports coat, a “grapeful dead” teeshirt and blue swede shoes. After we had down, my date surprised me again by ordering only salad and fresh juice. Then, out of the blue, my date got up and began to sing a happy birthday song. How did he know it was my birthday? It was a crazy song that involved dancing “the chicken”, the bump and the “boug-a-lou”.

Out of the corner of my eye, I noticed that the waiter was carrying a cake. A big one, by the way. It was a heart shape cake. Nobody could have anticipated what happend next but, as it turned out, it was the perfect end to the evening. The next month we saw ourselves in a new movie because our blind date was a blind filming.

Story 2

In a preparation for my blind date last week, I had decided to wear a black top and blue jeans. As an ice-breaker, I had to bought my date  a box of chocolate. We had arranged to meet in my favorite restaurant. It is a Moroccan restaurant. The food is great. Also, there are some belly dancers. They are gorgeous.

When I arrived, I couldn’t believe my eyes. My date was wearing a luxurious evening dress. After we had down, my date surprised me again by ordering the most expensive dish on the menu – rack of lamb. I began to worry about who was going to pay for our meal.

Then, out of the blue, my date got up and kissed me on the cheek. Out of the corner of my eye, I noticed that the waiter was watching my date and I. Nobody could have anticipated what happend next but, as it turned out, it was the perfect end to the evening. The music began to have a great rhythm for wild dancing. People could not resist getting up to dance crazily. Everybody danced with everyone else. I met two more potencial dates and I had a wonderful time. We all collapsed laughing!

Story 3

In a preparation for my blind date last week, I had decided to wear jeans and T-shirt. As an ice-breaker, I had to bought my date candies and roses. We had arranged to meet in my favorite restaurant. It is “The Four Seasons” in New York City. This restaurant is very luxurious, with large bouquets of exotic flowers, a quartet of musicians playing soft music and elegant waiters.

When I arrived, I couldn’t believe my eyes. My date was wearing red top and blue jeans. After we had down, my date surprised me again by ordering eight courses meal! Oh, my godness! I couldn’t eat everything! Also, I’m on a diet! Anyway, I’m a vegetarian and my date ordered only meat! I had to eat only the side dishes! Then, out of the blue, my date got up and asked me to go to the patio.

Out of the corner of my eye, I noticed that the waiter was taking pictures of us. Nobody could have anticipated what happend next but, as it turned out, it was the perfect end to the evening. I took a piece of cake and threw it at my date. He was a crazy guy! I went home and started watching a romantic movie. The real life is not easy!

Story 4

In a preparation for my blind date last week, I had decided to wear my sequined, transparent gown that I had worn to a fancy wedding. I wanted to be very special. As an ice-breaker, I had to bought my date a box of chocolate, but it was not a simple one. It was a 99% cacau. Have you ever tried it?  We had arranged to meet in my favorite restaurant. It is the best McDonald’s in my neighborhood!

When I arrived, I couldn’t believe my eyes. My date was wearing a flip-flop, T-shirt, and bermuda. Also, he was wearing sunglasses and a Panama hat. Crazy!! After we had down, my date surprised me again by ordering a chicken tikka (Indian food). Then, out of the blue, my date got up and started singing a terrible song. He didn’t know how to sing!! He forgot the lyrics and he was singing out of tune!!

Out of the corner of my eye, I noticed that the waiter was lighting candles on a cake and dimming the lights in the restaurant. Nobody could have anticipated what happend next but, as it turned out, it was the perfect end to the evening. We sat out the restaurant and my date brought me a cake. We cut it together and we enjoyed our time.
