Subject:  Date with Mike

Hi Rachel.  I had my blind date with your friend Mike last night.  We met at the restaurant like you planned.  He's totally different from how you described him.  You said he's tall, but he's really short.  You said that he's overweight, but he's thin.  Also, you said that he's serious, but he's funny.  I think I'm in love.  Thank you for introducing us.
