First, we decided no gifts. Of course, Laura bought me cookies and I sent her a singing Teleglam from Renaissance City Choirs. So much for no presents.
We decided to head to Sesame Inn in the North Hills. We walked in to this:
Turns out, this was the takeout line. I amused myself with selfies b/c I love this hat.
We were seated in less than 10 mins. The hostess gave us a nice booth because we were a “nice couple” unlike man ahead of us who yelled at her. We ate delicious food:
Then we went to Starbucks to use coupon and just talk. Influx of Catholic school teens made us reflect on decision not to have children. Good call.
It was a perfectly lovely night. Nice meal, even with a serenade from the violinist ( Kenneth.) The staff were very nice to us and I didn’t feel the least bit awkward as a same-sex couple. In fact, it was sort of sweet how nice the hostess was to us simply because we were polite – we got the better table? We didn’t ask for a booth, but it goes to show politeness pays off.
But the best part was talking. With each other. From politics to music to our hopes to our health, we talked. Then we came home to our warm house, cared for our pets and went to bed.
How did you spend your Valentine’s Day?
