Scenario: A woman and man have just met for their first date, and we know how crazy those can get. Your assignment, if you choose to accept it, is to fabricate and add the next line in the conversation.

The overall tone of the conversation is to be comically funny. Not every single line must be, as some lines can act as a setup for a subsequent poster to make a punchline. This makes it even more funny. To keep things straight in case of any accidental cross-posting, please put either "guy:" or "gal:" at the beginning of your line. If two people simultaneously post a guy line, for instance, the next poster shall post a gal line for either of the previous simultaneous guy lines (or both, if you can work them in together). Clear as mud? Good! Just like a first date, then. Let's begin.




Guy: Thank you for meeting me; what a lovely outfit you are wearing!

If we copy and paste the conversation each time it will be easier to get the laughs, so here goes!!    your turn.......

Guy: Thank you for meeting me; what a lovely outfit you are wearing!
Gal: Thank you so much, this was my dead mothers.  We could not decide if she wanted to be buried in  this blue outfit or the white one.

Gal: I'm sorry to hear that. Really, though, I sometimes wondered if she was alive or dead-- until last year, of course. You said yours ran off with a xylophone player-- have you ever heard from her?

The thread is becoming seriously bifurcated...

Guy: It must have been nice to have a mother. Mine ran off with a xylophone player when I was two months old.
Gal:  Oh what a strange coincidence, my father was a xylophone player!
Guy: umm how old did you say you are???

Gal: About your age, maybe a year younger.
Guy: If this goes any further, we're going to have a Greek tragedy on our hands.

Ha Ha Anne;
I think their date is over... after discovering they might have the same dad!
Might be time for a new couple.

This is not the best way to start a date:

Gal: You look different in your online profile.

Guy: I was impressing you with my photoshop skills.

Gal: I am not impressed.

Perhaps we all know first dates all to well! I suppose I wasn't clear enough that the point is to have fun by keeping the conversation going. I suppose, also many of us may be having flashbacks to some real dooseys of a first date that we wanted to end post haste. Have no fear, this is not a real first date, and as such we are all safe from any such negativity, except maybe the chance of laughing a bit too hard and maybe wetting ourselves a bit. Or farting. Or both. Let's start again.

(And copying and pasting is not required. For many posting from cell phones, copying and pasting is so difficult it may deter them from participating.)



Gal: Sorry I'm late! You won't believe the difficulties I've had getting here!

Guy: Yeah, those roving packs of cannibal zombies are getting more aggressive lately. So, how would you like to spend the evening? I was thinking that we could watch the sunset over the scorched remains of the city and then forage for gasoline and weapons in the ruins.

Guy)  Gosh that sounds great it's just past Plains I think.
I heard there is a dance hall there, maybe the Rolling Stones are doing a surprise dance there today!

Gal: Funny that Dance Hall is named Pair-a-dice, is that a coincidence? Pair-a-dice and paradise?
