“Rex! I get it! You have a girlfriend. Things are going well. You’re in love! Mercy already! MERCY!”
Well, I don’t want to write about the specifics of my job hunt, so this is the other thing going on in my life.
So… Mona and I celebrated Valentine’s Day on Friday. Went to dinner. A tapas place we’ve been to before.
We sit down and I have a big smile. Mona asks “what’s up?” So I whip it out.
No, not that, you deviant. I whipped out an electronic votive candle that changes colors:
Ok, I’m completely silly and we have a great fun relationship. We have a bunch of those candles at both of our places to add ambience to Advanced Cuddling time, but I thought it would be fun to have one on the restaurant table while we ate dinner.
Yes, she thinks I’m slightly crazy. So what? It was a great conversation piece with the waiter, because he knows what’s supposed to be on the table and that’s not supposed to be there.
“Yes, I brought it as something special to have at the table for dinner” I said.
Then the manager walked over and asked about it. Then the owner. It added some fun to their evenings.
And to ours.
