Not for Me

She was young, hot, and exciting. She took an interest in me; older, plain, and boring. I was flattered, of course, and agreed to a date. First, she was two hours late without an excuse. Then, she claimed she had no money, so I paid for everything. Lastly, she spent ninety percent of the date on her phone interacting with everyone except me. I decided that maybe old, plain, and boring is more to my liking.
