Casual Dating

Eloise was new to the dating scene.  Her online date, Wolfgang, was to meet here at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa for lunch.  At first the conversation went smoothly until she asked about his aspirations, his goals, a bucket list.  Wolfgang’s face went blank.  He rose, offered to split the check; or may be leave the tip; and was gone.  the Face of Everyman tried to think of something to say.  No matter, her phone rang.  Her two o’clock date, Renaldo, just reconfirming their meeting and asking if it was okay if he dressed casual.
