The blind date
by Pallavi Meno
It was a blind date.
I would be wearing a white checked shirt and black pants and she would be carrying her lemon green handbag.
I entered the cafe and looked around excitedly.
All I saw was a blur of white checked shirts and black pants.
I was dressed in the same attire as the waiters.
It was just my luck.
