Guy : Hmmm, hey Jeri, I’m pretty bored. You think I should look through Mugbook for some possible girlfriend material?
Jeri: Sir, I think that’s a splendid idea. I’ll open your Mugbook profile now.
Guy: Nope. Nope. Noooo. Definite schizo. Heyyyy, what about this one, I used to go to school with her!
Jeri: You seem an excellent match sir. Would you like to send her a text message?
Guy: Hell Yeah! Hmm lets see…..
Guy: How about that, that’s pretty romantic right?
Jeri: Quite so, sir.
Guy: Send! Now we play the waiting game.
Face to Blank Phone, back and forth.
Guy: Jesus, what is this girl doing?!
BZZZZ. Message comes through.
Guy: She said yes!
Jeri: It seems so, sir.
Jeri: If I may be so bold sir, maybe you should get ready. The time is 7.30.
Guy: Jeez, you’re right.
Combs hair, sticks back up.
Guy: Close enough. Any last minute tips, Jeri?
Jeri: I have searched the web and found females are attracted to smart, humorous men, preferably with muscles.
Guy: I’m going to be alone forever.
Jeri: Maybe you should just be polite, sir. No foul language, good posture, and look after her well-being.
Guy: Good idea, Jeri. I dunno what I’d do without you!
Jeri: Fear not sir, I’ll be with you the whole time.
Guy walks up to Girl waiting outside restaurant.
Guy: You ready to eat?
Girl: Yeah! Lets head in!
Inside restaurant sat at table.
Girl: Wow, there’s so much to choose from. Maybe I’ll have the roast beef!
Jeri: Actually, wikimedia says red meat is a catalyst for cancer. Might I suggest a nice salad?
Guy: Trust in Jeri, he’s always right.
Girl gives awkward smile.
Fade to after meal.
Girl: Ohhh im stuffed, that was delicious! I think I might still have some room for dessert though, if you know what I mean
Guy tries to speak but is interrupted.
Jeri: Actually, eating dessert too quickly after your meal can result in a downward spiral to extreme weight gain. A quick scan online has resulted in the suggestion to exercise more regularly to lose love handles.
Girl looks angry.
Couple stood outside restaurant.
Guy: So, you want to take a walk on somewhere?
Girl: Yeah, that sounds great!
Jeri: Might I suggest the beach for a romantic walk? Only three mugging have been reported in your area within the past two months.
Girl looks worried.
Guy looks awkward.
Unknown female voice comes from Girls handbag.

Girl: Sorry, always trust Miri!
Girl Walks off
Guy looks angry.
Jeri: She sounded hot.
Guy: Shut the f-BEEP up.
