The Topic for this week’s Sunday Scribblings is “The Date”
You can either write about an actual date (blind or otherwise) or about a particular date or a due date or a deadline or the best day of your life or the day that changed your life (or if you feel cheeky you could write about the date that is a food.) Several dates came to mind. Read on to see which one I chose.
My first NON date with my husband of the last three years (we were too scared to call it a date) was January 10, 2002. I’ll save that for another post.
The date that devastated my life was October 10, 2004 when my father passed away suddenly and unexpectedly at the young age of 69. I have written about that date at least twice, once recently, and I don’t think I can [emotionally] visit that topic again right now. But I linked up to my 2 Sunday Scribblings in which I did speak about that date. Click the word "twice" or the words "once recently" to read those posts.
However, on a lighter note, my son and I found ourselves the only two people (in a household of six) home for dinner this Friday night, so I decided to make it our “date night.” Yes, he’s only 11, but he will eventually date, and I wanted him to see how a date goes and make sure he knows how to treat a lady properly. He opened doors for me, he was pleasant and agreeable, and he even filled the drinks and brought them to the table for me. We had a nice steak and potato dinner at Tony's barbecue.
After dinner, we hit the mall. He’s been wanting a cover for his cell phone. We picked one out then browsed the mall at bit. He even let me go in Build-a-Bear. When we left the mall, he agreed to go to Borders with me to look for some books. He continued to open doors and say please and thank you the entire night. When we got home, I got a good-night hug thanking me for the date. Then he kindly let me retreat to the solitarity of the master bath to take a long, peaceful, hot soak in my moisturizing detox rocks from Bath Junkie. I think I’m teaching him well, don’t you?
