Once more without typo:
Peppermint tea is good if someone suffer from sickness, stomach problems. So you were nervous. Or you wanted present yourself as a teetotaler (German: Antialkoholiker). I like the English expression "teetotaler". First I read in the dictionary "teatotaler"! :-)
I like both imaginations. The ku opens wide.

perhaps Ralf is wanting to put his beer goggles aside this time (does 'beer goggles' translate into German?).

I think its lovely. There are so many reasons why peppermint tea is the drink of choice on this occasion - fun to think about

Rudi Pfaller hat gesagt…

I made efforts in English:

"Beer goggles is a slang term for a phenomenon in which consumption of alcohol lowers sexual inhibitions to the point that very little or no discretion is used when approaching or choosing sexual partners."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beer_goggles
Translation:
“Beer goggles ist der Ausdruck (Slang) für das Phänomen, dass Alkoholkonsum die sexuelle Hemmschwelle absenkt, in der Art, dass nur sehr geringe oder gar keine Diskretion besteht, wenn man sich einem Geschlechtspartner annähert oder ihn auswählt." Maybe the German word "Bierlaune" or "Bierdunst" comes close to the american slang.

Another reason to order peppermint tea in the blind date... I like this imagination as well.

...makes me smile...
not only your poem, but all the imponderables mentioned in the comments - OMG - but as gautami tripathy said - it's the safest option - and finally the decent smile just turns into a hearty laugh - lol

A nice ku, with a little breeze of bashfulness.
Indeed, very good! Love it.

Nice one - so much story to this. So many gaps for us to fill in with our own plot.

Thanks a lot, Gesine and jem.
