Every date that much more typical,
Of the boring egotistical,
Men that journey through my life,
For the prized title, that of wife.
To please a mother who keeps insisting,
A biological clock that’s ticking,
But not sure she’d justify what on earth it,
Takes to make these dates nearly worth it.
I’ve lost track so long ago,
Of a one sided conversation easy though,
As my lack of attention goes unheeded,
And, in fact, is barely needed.
As I think longingly of the dessert,
That might give this night some worth,
And allow myself to daydream,
Of perhaps an evil scheme.
Where he’s up in smoke and in his wake,
A giant piece of chocolate cake,
And when finally the waitress inquires,
If there’s anything else that we desire.
I eagerly accept the proffer,
Without even waiting for him to offer,
Or ever think about my rudeness,
As I immerse myself in the chocolatey goodness.
And when I’m done I become mildly aware,
Of the fact my date’s no longer there,
I linger to show a bit of tact,
Before deciding he’s not coming back.
And when I ask of family and friends,
They say they never heard from him again.

You know what he’s thinking? You’re a big slice of apple pie with vanilla ice cream on the top. So scrumptious and yummy.
You see? And that’s further proof of the mix match, I don’t do apple pie and vanilla…it’s all decadent chocolate for me!
That made me laugh, t’was far more than a giggle.
Good Lord! It even made my tummy jiggle.
Hope you enjoyed the cholcolate cake, ha ha.
Thanks Carole! You can bet I did!
Ahhh yes… the cake date! 🙂 🙂 Though it’s been a long, long while since I became an old married gal, I well remember the chocolate daydreams…. a very nice poem, indeed!! Made me chuckle.
So glad you sympathize…and that you liked it!
Les cuisiniers font ça ! C’est passionnant Cakex 2.
J’adore vos commentaires . Ils me font apprendre le français
Deliciously evil! 🙂
I wanted to be a rock star. I should have been a baker. 🙂
you still can
I thought being a rocker like the Beatles would get me girls. I didn’t know chocolate was the secret. I’m now old and married. 🙂
A bit of both…
bake together then
Well, I never tried your baking, but you sure seem to be a rock star to me.
Be it decadent chocolate or Mr Royster’s apple pie I’m sure you are all things to your old man! Fine verse again.
Well, one could only hope. Thanks Mike!
WHAT??? We can eat cake on dates???????????????????
Yes, you just have to wear a loose dress!
Hhhmmmm, thankfully I do not have to ‘date’ now and my husband will eat cake with me! 🙂
ha! This is a funny comment stream considering, every woman I know says, “I’m not hungry. Just a dinner salad please. And then salivates at her date’s plate, all night long.
How satisfying would life be, if we envisioned all as desserts.
Thank you for the inspiration and the terrific morning humor – wonderful way to begin any day, though now I want chocolate cake…
I’ve known plenty of chocolate desserts that were more satisfying than my dates were. 🙂
Me too, Marie, me too!

I LIKE HAPPY ENDINGS WITH IRONY!!!!
A Date where you get your Just Desserts. Love it! Next time, banana “Date Nut” bread??
Oh, Stephanie! I don’t know why I didn’t see your comment above. I guess with the losers you just don’t care whether you pig out or not. Could be the rating of a date, if you don’t care about pigging out, you’re just not that into him! And Date Nut Bread…classic!
Yum! Down with boring nights out–more chocolate cake!
Miss your comments and blogs but so glad you turned up for this one, my fellow chocolate lover!
