There are few things worse than being stood up on a date.
Even aside from the the crushing knowledge that you’ve been ditched (but why? WHY? WHY WOULD SOMEONE DO THAT? YOU’RE GREAT!), there’s the sinking realisation that all your hard work – getting out of bed, shaving your legs, curling your hair, doing winged eyeliner – was for nothing.
It’s enough to get anyone down.
But not Mimi.
When Mimi went all the way into Glasgow for a date with a man and he didn’t have the decency to show up, she decided she wouldn’t be put off.
In fact, she decided, being forced to make small talk with some random dude was by far the least exciting part of the night she had planned.
So instead of having a cry and ruining her mascara, Mimi treated herself to a sale at lingerie store Ann Summers.
She snacked on a McDonalds wrap. She had a sundae at a cafe.
Then, she settled in for a cocktail at a classy bar.
