Sweet Hubby took me to the movies tonight for Valentine’s Day (and because a date was long-overdue!) I have been trying to explain to him that a “date” is not really a “date” if
1. We have the little Bug with us.
2. I ask him to do something with me.
3. I have to arrange care for Bug for us to do something.
He got my not-so-subtle hints! I wanted to see 27 Dresses, and you gotta love a man who will cater to his wife’s chick flick addiction! It was cute– I wouldn’t hold my breath for it to win any awards, but it was romantic and mindless (my favorites!) and FREE! Our friends gave us a gift card they had received when they moved out of town– score!
I quickly remembered why we don’t frequent the theatre these days– two movie tickets, a small drink, medium popcorn, and box of milkduds rang up to $23.50! (At matinee prices!) Holy smokes, does the movie-going American public have “Easy” stamped on their collective forehead? Apparently.
Thanks for the date, Hubby. I love being your Valentine!
