Outside the cafĂ© that overlooked the boardwalk, I looked for my hunky god in red. I saw a couple red pairs of swim trunks, but I didn’t think Keith would be *that* informal. Fifteen minutes later I must have looked pretty dejected. I glanced at my watch. Where the heck was he? He said one o’ clock and here it was quarter after.

Stood up for a blind date. Could it get much worse?

“Lizzie Maynard?”

I whipped around toward the masculine voice I heard from behind, my heart leaping for joy. He did show!

I looked around because dumb me couldn’t see what was standing right in front of me.

“Are you Lizzie Maynard?”

“No,” I croaked, sounding more like a dying frog than human. “No I’m sorry, I’m not.”

When Keith said he would be wearing red, he should have been a little more specific.

He was dressed all in red, from head to toe.

And I’m not talking about a red baseball cap, red shirt, red pants and red shoes. Oh no. That would be weird, but I’d get over it.
No, Keith was dressed up in the biggest lobster costume I’d ever seen, with the words “Salty Sam’s” written in large black letters on his torso. Long red antennae reached up a good ten feet in to the air. His face was even red. Yes. Just as red as a boiled lobster. Blue eyes stood out and his teeth looked blazing white against the eye-numbing redness of his whole being.

Oh no, I wasn’t going to be Lizzie today.

ROFL!

OH MY GOSH! Lobster man for a blind date. No way, no how!!

Excellent!
