Went to dinner with my hubby last night. We were supposed to go to dinner with his boss and boss's wife, but they had to cancel at the last minute. But cool bossman said, "Take the wife out and put it on the company tab." He must have felt guilty. Guilt is a good thing;)))
So anyway, we went to a Thai restaurant downtown. Very cool place, and the food was great. It was soooooo nice being out on a date completly alone with hubby. We go out a lot, actually, and always have a blast, but it's always with other people. It's been ages since it's just been us. Although if you ask hubby, it wasn't just us. "The Writer" was with us too. Can't seem to get rid of the writer no matter what I do.
Writer's are a strange breed, I admit it.
There was this couple next to us (He looked just like Ashton Kutcher and she was a young pretty, little thing). Right behind them were two women, okay girls, they all looked like they were barely out of diapers, for crying out loud (yes, I still felt old after the ma'am thing;)) Anyway, Ashton's date gets up and goes to the bathroom, and as soon as she leaves, the two young things behind him are all giggles and grins and batting eye lashes as they stared at him. I'm taking it all in.
My hubby says: "What ... are you doing?"
Hubby: "Yeah, right. You haven't heard half of what I just said. You're "people" watching again, aren't you." He knows me so well. I can't go anywhere without watching people react to each other, listen to their conversations, study body language and descriptions. Like I said, writers are a strange breed;))
Me: "Okay, okay, I was just watching those girls go gaga over that guy."
Hubby looks over his shoulder: "Well, they can't help themselves, because they're looking at me."
Me: "Honey, I am looking at you. They, on the other hand, are not."
Hubby: "You can't handle the truth." Yes, people, he's quoting movies again. (A Few Good Men with Jack Nickolson)
To which I replied: "And apparently, you can't SEE the truth. But don't worry, you had me at hello. Let's go, Jerry." (Jerry McGuire with Tom Cruise.)
Not that Tom is my type since he got all weird, more like Matthew MaConnaughey, but I still love that line. You had me at hello! Hey, whatever works.
Trust me, I felt a whole lot younger this morning;))
