How to, or how not to, survive a bad blind date A bad blind date is like a gamble. Well I would take it that way, any day! Mostly because a bad blind date just does not get any worse than it did to me some 2 years back. It was one of those lovely evenings when I bumped into a girl on the street’s most posh cafe…

She was sipping coffee, perched firmly on the cafe’s outside chair. I believe she was waiting for someone. If only I had known, I would not have dared. Then again, I took the gamble, and asked her to let me sit besides her. But before that I gathered the energy to speak to her. It was difficult. I had to go through a lean patch to begin with. She was exasperating in her beauty. And I had not known that it would be this difficult conversing with her. I was walking down the aisle when I saw her. Stopped for a moment, found some energy coming inside me and here I was – speaking to her. I asked her what she was called around. In other words, I wanted to know her name. I had made it difficult for myself. Sasha had a very coarse voice which just did not go well with how she looked. She sounded more like an 80 year old woman. Not that I have anything against older women but then I had my own expectations. She asked me my name. I told her who I was and what I was doing there. I noticed I told her a little too much about me yet asked her way too few questions. She was puzzled because I started the conversation in the hope that I would ask her questions yet it was me who was telling about me more and more. It was that sort of an evening. I had started to feel I was going wrong somewhere or maybe completely! We laughed away for a few moments but it was not supposed to last for long. Hey! I was not supposed to tell you that so quickly. However, Sasha also inquired about me. She wanted to know what forced me to sit besides her and start the conversation. I had no clue. Maybe it was the attraction that she created in my eyes and my heart for her. Too romantic? Maybe yes! I was inclined to sit with her because I felt she was beautiful and her eyes spoke in such a tone that I could not even figure how badly her actual voice would be. It was like sitting with a Ferrari yet being run on a Mini engine. What do I do? I was just too interested in cars that now I am actually comparing women with cars. Come on! The connection is obvious! Both look hot anyway. And here is the reason why I sat besides her. She felt like a Ferrari to me in the first look. I got enticed by her charms. And I told her just that! I thought we should introduce tea or perhaps coffee in between. But then she was already sipping coffee. And I was not! She did not even ask me for coffee. How rude! But I had intervened and she did not ask me to sit in the first place, or maybe the right place, or the wrong place! I asked her if she would like another cup of coffee. She told me her cup was still half full. Not the kind of answer I expected. So I did not ask for coffee from the cafe. I kept sitting and we continued to chat further. Without the coffee at least! She was having it all the time. How very inconsiderate on her part! Is not it? All of a sudden there was a hush. Sasha got up and there came a man who hugged her. She hugged back and both kissed on the cheeks. I was surprised who this new person was. Maybe someone she knew from the past. But why now? Why did he have to come to spoil my blind date? It was meant to happen. She introduced Peter to me. He was her husband who had gone to the next stop to get her a cab while she sipped coffee waiting for her. This was not happening to me. My blind date had gone wrong. Damn! It was a bad blind date. I should not have endeavored to meet Sasha. Or maybe it was her beautiful eyes that forced me to speak to her,

Raymond Carver’s style and works including “Cathedral” have often been placed under the category of “dirty realism”. Nevertheless, a close reading of “Cathedral” reveals the formalist elements neglected by the literary critics.
