Chapter 3: The Conversation

The whole rest of the day all I could think about was, When’s he going to call me? What will we talk about? Hope things don’t get too awkward.

An hour later while I was doing my laundry, my phone rang. I never would’ve thought that he’d be calling me this soon, but sure enough it was Jiromi on the other end of the phone.

“Hello” I said.

“Hi Judi, this is Jiromi, I told you I’d be calling soon.”

“You sure did, but I didn’t think you would be calling this soon.”

“Ohh were you busy…..I could always call back later.”

“No, No, I’m not busy you’re fine.”

“Ok, well, what’s new, I saw you walking out of the business office today, so you got the job?”

“I did, I did, I wasn’t sure while I was in there if I was going to get it or not, but I loosened up, the person that interviewed me was all smiles, so that made me feel really good.”

“Well that’s great, I’m glad you got the job, It’s a great accomplishment.”

“Yeah I guess so, where do you work?”

“I’m a chef over at the bistro, maybe I could take you there sometime, the food is awesome, and the atmosphere….don’t get me started on that, it’s lovely.”

“Maybe we could go there someday.” I said bashfully.

“So would you like to meet there tomorrow night around seven ish.”

“Jiromi….are you asking me out on a date.”

“Well, Ms. Osaka, I think I am.”

Judi found herself blushing over the phone.

“I think I could say yes to a date, seven sounds good to me.”

“Alright then, can’t wait till tomorrow Judi, I’ll talk to you tomorrow then.”

“Ok tomorrow it is…Bye.”


I couldn’t quite decipher what had just happened, but one thing I did know was that I had a date tomorrow night. Excitement lavished delightfully all over me. That night I went to bed happier than I’d been in a long time.

The Next Day……

I woke up at around 5:45am, because I had to be at work by 8. Had to have time to shower and get a little breakfast. The carpool arrived at 7:00am exactly, and I was ready to go. The whole car ride to work all I could think about was my date later this evening. What am I gonna wear? Should I arrive early or late? Well anyway its time for work.

7 hours later…..

I decided to walk home from work today, wanted to try and get a little exercise so I would look toned tonight in my dress. Even though I know it won’t matter trying to work out about four hours before my date. Walking actually felt good. I had time to clear my nerves and calm down about things. It’s a great remedy for nervousness.

So I walk in the door, get changed into some comfortable clothes and run over to my dresser to find an outfit for tonight. I’m not quite sure what to wear, but as I get to the bottom of my drawer I see the perfect dress that I hadn’t worn in ages.

I decide to do something different with my hair, maybe let it down for tonight. I guess it’ll bring out my face or what not. It took me about 2 hours to straighten it, but I have to look good on my first date that I’ve had in a long time.

After I finish straightening my hair, I look in the mirror and it looks pretty darn good! “CRAP” its already 6:15 and I haven’t even showered yet. I strip down and jump in the shower, 15 minutes later I jump out and scramble to get ready. “Makeup…Check”, “Hair…Check”, “Dress…Check”, “Shoes….SHOES.” I quickly grab my heels, take one last glance at myself, and walk out the door.
