Blind Date Bust

My cousin had wanted to set me up with a friend of hers she went to school with. He had seen me hanging out with her and was interested in me. I never got a good look at him, but agreed to just exchange numbers. After talking to him on the phone, we really hit it off and agreed to meet. However, it all went down hill from there. He flat out lied about how he looked. He told me on the phone that he looked a little like Tyson Beckford. He looked more like a bruised Mike Tyson! On top of everything else, his breath smelled like stale, rotten coffee. To end the night after our movie, he took me to Burger King. What a big spender. That was our first and only date.
