After assuring her he had not peeked, she removed the blindfold and yelled “SURPRISE!
In each of these stories, it’s always the girl who humiliates herself, and always in front of a surprise double date couple.
A related version of this tale has an even longer history, one reaching back at least to 1934: Once upon a time, there lived a man who had a terrible passion for baked beans.
He loved them, but they always had an embarrassing and somewhat lively reaction on him. When it was apparent that they would marry, he thought to himself, “She’ll never go through with the marriage with me carrying on like this” so he made the supreme sacrifice and gave up beans. A few months later, on the way home from work, his car broke down and since they lived in the country, he phoned his wife and told her that he would be late because he had to walk.
The windy young lady of our story seems to presume her date won’t notice anything amiss provided she lets loose when he’s temporarily out of the car.
In real life, very few of us would make that erroneous assumption.
