The Politics of Dating

(Dialogue on a first date between senior man and senior woman)

“You look nice.”

“Sorry I am late.”

“Let me tell you about my third wife.”

“I have two dogs.”

“I used to work on defense missiles.”

“You must like to play video games.”

“I like you.”

“I am not a Republican, but I bet you are.”

“Trump isn’t that bad.”

“He’s a misogynist, a sexual predator, and a liar.”

“Hillary should be in jail.”

“Because of the email thing?”

“The email thing was a security breech for the nation.”

“Okay.”

“And what do you think about Nancy Pelosi?”

“We shouldn’t talk politics on a first date.”

“My second wife was the love of my life.”

“She had cancer, right?”

“Would you like dessert?”

“No, thanks.”

“We just need to build the border wall to stop the illegals from coming in.”

“They are fleeing danger. One mom is coming with her teen daughter since one of the street gangs said it was coming for her. I read it in The Guardian.”

“Those aren’t their real children. They are using them to get into our country and go on welfare.”

“How do you know that?”

“They should fly to New York and come in the legal way.”

“If they have to walk 2000 miles from Guatemala, how do you think they will pay for plane tickets to New York?”

“Let’s order dessert. I’m not done talking with you.”

“Okay.”

“Pick something.”

“Tiramisu.”

“Why aren’t you eating any?”

“I’m diabetic.”

“Thanks for dinner.”

“Let me walk you to your car.”

“Okay.”

“Can I call you?”

“I am pretty busy.”

“You call me.”

“I will text you.”

“Okay, drive safely.”

“You, too.”
