I have a date with My Bride this evening. She planned the dinner part and I’ve got the entertainment learning from some mistakes of my past, I ran a few things by her. I suggested one of those pizza places with an arcade, that would recreate one of our dates from high school.
No, too many kids.
How about ice skating?
No, I don’t want to go to the hospital.
Ok, no problem.
Just so everyone is clear, none of those rejections hurt me in anyway. It would’ve a month ago, not now.
I told her I’d surprise her.
I frantically searched google for ideas. I’m doing this for 2 reasons.
1. Dinner and a movie is lame.
2. I want this to be memorable.
One of the articles I ran across said to take you both out if your comfort zone juuuuust a little. There are ideas too numerous to mention where My Bride is out of her comfort zone. My work is delicate.
I have come to a decision AND I have a back up plan!! [that has never happened before].
Last night My Bride wrote that she’s nervous about my plans. What are we doing? “I’d like to keep it a surprise.” I just want to know if it’s something I’ll be up for. “It’ll be fun, all you have to do is sit there.”
I’m pretty anxious about this. I’d like to know so I can calm down. “I would like you trust me on this. I promise this will be ok. If you really want to know, I’ll tell you.” Ok, I’ll let you know tomorrow.
The best part of this, she has no idea we’re going
skydiving, walking across hot coals, helicopter ride, Thunder/Spurs game to have an easy, fun time. She’s going to be able to relax and enjoy the company of a ruggedly handsome man that adores the ground she walks on. My Bride, if she can keep her anxiety down, will have a good time this evening. I can’t wait to be a part of it.
