So, a couple of weekends ago, I had an epiphany. I'm married to a smart, sex, wonderful, amazing woman, and it's been FAR TOO LONG since I've taken her out on the town.
Guys, seriously, if you had a wife like Cora, wouldn't you want to take her out.
So, we scheduled a "Date Night."
We left a big pile of Kibble and a bowl of water for the girl… We made sure our 15 year old daughter had dinner before we headed out on Saturday night. The night was a little cold, but the winter has been so mild, we walked to one of the Thai restaurants in the neighborhood. "One of"? Yes. I think there's like 8 Thai restaurants within a short walk my place. That's not counting a couple of sushi joints and a Chinese place. (And I live in a German neighborhood. Seriously.)
We walked hand in hand to the restaurant, a little store front place that has gotten some pretty decent press, and we've been to a few times with great success.
Even though it was Saturday at dinner time, we got a table for two right away. We sat at the table, talking like adults. We didn't talking about the court case we are dealing with, and we didn't talk about the daughter too much either. We just talked.
And it was wonderful.
(I had the spicy basil with chicken. Cora had the cashew chicken. We split the "crab lagoon". Tasted like crab rangoon to me. I knew you'd want to know.)
After dinner, we wanted a little dessert, but nothing on the menu sounded good, so we hiked up to a Mexican place. Cora got the flan covered chocolate cake, and I got the berry cheese cake. MMmmmmmm…
We brought the desserts home, and ate them while watching Dead Again, one of Cora's favorite movies, starring a couple of Hogwarts professors (Gilderoy Lockhart & Sybil Trelawney) in a past lives / murder mystery drama. And at about midnight, the movie and the date ended.
It was a good date.
I'm looking forward to doing it again soon. :-)
Are you married? Do you have date nights or is that just a "newlywed thing"?
