Beth waited, gazing out the window of the little cafe. She watched cars come and go; families, couples, friends all enjoyed their meals and left while she waited. . . .

Across town, Allen waited, wondering if Beth, his blind date, was ever going to show up. Finally, with a great big question mark in his mind, he left.

Beth called her friend Sharon from the cafe just before she left.

“WHAT? I just spoke to him, and he said YOU never showed!”

They finally met, still laughing about their near-miss many years later.

  3. Sweet story, I am glad it got sorted out for them. I once input an address in the navigator and did not notice it had chosen ‘X Avenue’ instead of ‘X Street’. Ended up waiting and wondering why no one else had shown up. A phone call did resolve that issue 🙂
