Cosmo and I had a lovely date last night in honor of Valentine’s Day. Sushi, a little wine (me, not him), and ice cream at Marble Slab (dark chocolate with cookie dough and raspberry with vanilla – can you guess which one ate which?). I love my husband and I’m a sucker for Valentine’s Day.
As we were leaving Midori Sushi, we walked past one of their cute, cozy, romantic booths. I glanced inside to see what the couple sitting inside was wearing and eating – I’m a little nosy, ok? Much to my surprise, both people – a man and a woman – had their own Kindles and were sitting reading books!!
Here’s how it went down earlier that evening:
Her: “Should we go out for Valentine’s Day?”
Him: “I suppose…since they’re going to the trouble to have one. Where should we go?”
Her: “Midori. They have those cute, cozy, romantic booths.”
Him: “Perfect! Nice and quiet so we can get some reading done!”
Her: “That’s what I was thinking!”
Him: “Don’t forget your Kindle, ‘cuz I’m not sharing!”
In Unison: “Valentine’s Schmalentines…”
To each his own. Two peas in a pod. Similar interests. I suppose…but really? Out on a romantic date to ignore one another in favor of a book on your matching Kindles? Wish I’d had the nerve to ask if I could take their picture!
