The date didn't exactly happen. I met up with "y" who was actually in town for something else. However, then she/we realized that there were transportation problems for her getting back home and so she actually needed to leave right then or stay over night. And I have a former roommate staying with me so her staying over night wouldn't have worked so well.
So therefore I saw her, we drove around in the rain trying to figure out what to do, we chatted for about 5 minutes and then she kissed me on the cheek and left again.
The only proper word for this is "Alas". Sometimes life is like that.
