“Is it you? I recognized the striped Ralph Lauren V-neck sweater.”

“Yes, it’s me.”


“Hello. Thank you for coming tonight.”

“Thank you for calling."

“Please, sit down.”

“Thank you.”

“Would you like to order now?”

“No, not yet, but I’d like something to drink, though.”

“What would you like? Wine? Champagne maybe?”

“Yes, but I’d like a beer, please. How about you?”

“I’ll have the same, I guess.”

“This is a... cozy place.”

“Yes. I suggested it because it’s in a safe neighborhood... for you.”

“Oh, I appreciate that. You’re a real gentleman!”

“So, what’s your name?”

“You can call me Amber. What’s your name?”

“Seth. Nice to meet you.”

“Nice to meet you, too.”

“I really like your Victoria Secret dress. I recognized the black dress and the red rose on your hair the moment you walked into the restaurant. You're a beautiful woman. I wasn’t expecting this nice… surprise! A blue-eyed blond woman... I love blondes. It’s amazing. I think we'll have a great evening."

“Well, thank you. You are an attractive man yourself. I love your short hair cut. I don’t like men with long hair or Yuppie pony tails. I like you, Seth. I’m pleased.”

“Me too. Amber, when you answered my call this morning your voice seemed a bit hoarse. I kind of imagined someone, somehow different, you know."

“I... I was nervous.”


“Because you sounded… different from the other callers. I liked the way you talked to me.”

“When did you place the ad?”

“Oh, sometime ago.”

“I thought about it, you know – if I should have called you or not. I never went out on a blind date before. I never met a woman this way, I mean - without meeting her beforehand.”

“But you are meeting me now, nevertheless, and all is OK, right?”

“Yes, you’re right. I’m happy I called but one thing is still troubling me. Why did you say “you can call me Amber”?”

“Because it’s my… nickname, Seth.”

“What do you mean by nickname?”

“Well, it’s the name I decided to use in my ad in the classifieds. I have to be careful. There are a lot of weirdos out there. It’s a jungle out there, Seth. A woman must be careful these days.”

“So, what’s your real name, Amber?”

“Do you really want to know?”

“Yes, I do. I am becoming quite interested in you. You are a stunning woman and I’d be but a fool if I let you out of my sight!”

“My real name is… Franklin. Franklin Jones.”

“You are a… man?”

“Yes, Seth, but I thought you knew that already!”

“No… I didn’t! Oh my! I think we might have a… really big problem to deal with here!”

“Why? Aren’t we connecting? Don’t I please you? Don't you like me?”

“Well yes, sure I do but you see… my real name isn’t... Seth.”

“Oh it’s OK. What is your name then? Tom? Paul? Joe?”

“No. My real name is… Sandra. Sandra Ryan!”
