广大适龄男女青年有没有被逼着去相亲的经历?如果有的话,有没有尬聊了很久,忍无可忍想拍案而起的冲动?此时比较常见的不失优雅的逃脱方式就是假装有电话,然后借口跑掉。这个solution虽然已经不是很有创意,但是机智程度也足够满足a wise solution的条件了。所以,编起来:

I’d like to talk about the time my cousin got rid of her embarrassing date in a really clever way.

Well, here’s the story. My cousin, according to her parents, has reached the age when she’s suppose to get married, so her mom fixed her up with a boy, the son of her coworker, if I remember right. Anyway, my cousin doesn’t like to meet her other half in this way, but she couldn’t go against her mom’s will, so she had to go to that blind date.

However, she came up with a brilliant idea. Actually, I did her a little favor. Here’s what we did. She took me to the restaurant, and let me sit by the table next to theirs. She changed my name in her contact list into ‘Father’, and she told me, if during the date, she does this (此处应有body language), it means I need to call her right away, so that she could make up an excuse and run away, like there’s a family emergency going on or something like that.

And her plan really came in handy! Her date was totally a disaster, I mean, he was not that well groomed, his hair was even really greasy. What’s worse, he just went on and on about how loaded he was, which to be honest, wasn’t very convincing.

Soon I took her hint and did what she told me to do earlier. Thanks to me, she got out of the awkward date.
