” After they were seated at the table, the boy proceeded to loudly discuss how young Janet was, even though she’d repeatedly told him they were the same age. In his own words: "The chat was horrifically bad." The date was so awkward that he felt forced to start pretending to keep an eye on the football that was on in the corner of the pub, as a way of covering for the long, empty silences.

He walked all the way to the train with her, but thankfully didn’t insist upon taking the same train. “I have needs.” She was so shaken, she worried he’d follow her home, so she followed a very meandering route and kept her eyes on the rearview mirror.
