So, I'm atop the Space Needle, across the table from this gorgeous, sexy, smart, funny woman. The view was spectacular. And the scenery out the window wasn't bad, either. The food was fabulous. It was a simply a magical evening. So, during a quiet moment, when we were both just soaking it in, I had to do it. I'd been fighting it since I landed. Heck I'd been fighting it for a month. So, I took her hands in mine, looked her in the eyes, and said…
Wait, wait, wait, that's jumping to the end of the story. I distinctly remember people asking for details. Sorry about that.
I know Cora is doing a macro story(s) of the day, so I'm going to do the micro. Provide you with a couple of details.
We were headed back to the car. Exhausted from our morning of wandering around the city, and we thought a quick catnap would be refreshing. (No, we did not go back for a "quickie" ya pervs) Before getting to the car, we stopped in McDonald's to use the washrooms. I ask you, what kind of animal takes a dump in the urinal? Really? And did they just bidet in the sink? NASTY! Someone obviously didn't have a Happy Meal!
I understand from Cora that the ladies room was just a besoiled.
The Sci-Fi Museum closed, and we had some time to kill before our dinner atop the Space Needle. There was a little park nearby, so we walked down to it. The park was nothing special, but what was that going on across the street? What was that guy doing? He kept fiddling with it. Trying. Desperate. We had to stop and stare. (We're like that.) Struggle as he might, he couldn't get it up. Bless his soul, but he tried. Running it back and forth across the ground. Back and forth. He almost got it up, but it failed instantly. Finally, dejected, and maybe ashamed by his inability to perform in front of an audience, he took his radio controlled airplane and went home.
But it wasn't just water.
It was ENFUSED water. With what? Lemons? Limes? Melons?
And it was really, really, good. You should try this at home.
Now where was I? Oh yeah, so, I took her hands in mine, looked her in the eyes, and said… "I love you."
And she SO said it back. :-)
And then we leaned across the table, and gently kissed. It was truly a moment I will long cherish.
