My Double Date

My friend has known a girl that he used to work with for a while, and they're pretty good friends. Her friend saw my Myspace page and wanted to set up a double date. I agreed.

My friend and I also thought it would be hilarious if I used an accent throughout the entire date. I'm an actor and accents come naturally to me, so I agreed. Why not? So I came equipped with a South African accent (think, Leo DiCaprio in Blood Diamond).

Anyway, we went to dinner and then to a movie (Vantage Point, which really sucked). We both spent the night with our respective dates...they bought the accent the whole time.

Sounds like you had a good time. Did you say you were smuggling diamonds and could get them a good deal?

this thread fucking sucks. So much potential and it ends up being a really stupid story.

So if you end up liking her won't she feel stupid for "Spending the night" with guy who was goofing on her and her friend? Or did you eventually break character?

By the way, if your date was Jessica... I think your secret is out:

There's going to be some kind of read-athon and a big cook off going on tomorrow night! And don't forget the Magic tricks and accents for some awesome entertainment!
My guess is you were playing Magic the Gathering and fell asleep on her sofa, right? "I vill leed mit my forest djinn!"

There was definitely more to the story...but unfortunately, it would be locked due to...'adult forum' stuff. Keeping 'in character' during certain activities.

Guess I should have thought of that before posting the other part

I have since revealed that it was not my real accent. She's a cool girl.

Too bad you didn't affect a plain old limey accent instead. That way, at that oh-so-crucial moment, you could have started yelling "The British are coming! the British are coming!"

I do the same thing, but I always go with the hammy Dick Van Dyke style Cockney accent. I've yet to get laid.
