A man and a woman are painfully flirting

The restaurant was practically empty, save for them. The man and the woman sat in silence, each waiting for the other to begin.

The man started.

“H-Hi.” Oh god, I sound like an idiot.

“…Hi.” My Voice! Please come out!

“So…uh…um…do w-weather?” What is wrong with me!?

“Yes, it’s not snowing…I mean yeah it’s sunny.” Why did I bring that up?? Who says that??

Silence. Deader than the graveyard full of dead zombies.

The man tried again.

“Your dress looks nice. No, wait I mean…the dress AND you-” My stupid brain! Please work!

“I don’t hate your tie!” Just say you like it you ridiculous fool! Stop overcomplicating things!

The waiter came by.

“Would you like something?”


The woman tried smiling, weakly, but accidentally knocked over her glass, ruining the moment.

The man stood up and ran out of the room, knocking over the candles in the process, setting the woman’s dress on fire. She tripped into a pitcher full of oil and hid under the table in shame.

The restaurant caught on fire and burned to the ground.

The fire spread to the gas station nearby, which exploded, taking out the entire city block.

The city block was unfortunately connected to the nuclear power plant, which, thinking that there was an attack, shut down the power grid, leaving the entire city without power.

The military, seeing an entire city without power, wrongly assumed the cause was an EMP attack and counterattacked by launching their own EMPs towards rival countries.

The rival countries, wrongly seeing the EMPs as nuclear weapons, retaliated in kind.

And thus the world ended. Humanity was finished.

2 hours earlier…

“Hey, are you going on a date tonight?”

“Yeah, but I’m a little worried. I haven’t dated in a while, so I might be a little rusty.”

“Don’t overthink it man, what’s the worst that could happen?”
