2 Blogs. Episode 2. The First Date

Megan

December 6

Do you know the worst thing that can happen to you in the morning? Paper cut! It hurts so badly that I feel helpless. I can't wash dishes. I can hardly make a cup of coffee for myself. And it is really a problem to do make up. I just hope it will get better till evening. Guess why… Because today I'm going on a date! The neighbor asked me out. To tell the truth, I am happier now than I was when I had my prom. He is so cute! I'm very, very excited. The whole day I'm thinking about our date. What should I wear? Should I look very sophisticated or a pair of jeans will do?

I just love going on dates. But this time I have a problem. It turned out today is not the best time for a date. The point is that I'm having my period and feel really bad. I have a terrible pain in my lower tummy. Also it seems I have a fever. I think I should measure my temperature. I'm in a trouble. The problem is quite delicate, so I definitely can't tell him the truth. But if I just tell him I feel sick, and refuse to go out with him, he will think I don't like him. After that he will never ask me out again. This is so silly! It's not an excuse, but I feel guilty.

So, what should I do? Should I tell him I feel sick? Or should I go despite my pain and high temperature?
