made it through dinner last night

Sunday, October 20, 2013

We got there at the appointed time and just as we were getting out of the car we got a text that they were running late.

We hung out on top of the parking deck taking pictures of the sunset so that was nice. I carry a camera everywhere I go, except of course for last night. I took these with my cell phone - shudder

Dinner went about like I expected, maybe a little better. No one tried to order for me so I think we've learned that even though my mother-in-law has somehow forgotten that she is a strong woman who has no respect for that whole "oh you big strong man" routine, I have not. I did get a glass of house red wine with dinner like I wasn't going to.

I've learned a little trick at places like this. For most people part of the treat of going out to dinner is the dessert. I don't want to sit there being a wet blanket on the evening and I also don't want to end up with a plate of tiramisu in front of me so I order coffee. Its nice to have coffee after dinner and that way I've ordered something so there's no argument about how I should have dessert and no one insists that I try whatever it is they have.

hey whatever works

The smallest steak on the menu was 12 ounces. Bodie ended up with about half of mine. He seemed pretty happy about it.

So at least after a month of rescheduling and all, the requisite dinner is over.

    There was this point where HE tried to argue with me over the silliest thing. They were going to the Panther's game Sunday. The whole NFL strip search security thing is over the top. He said they wouldn't be able to take their seat cushions in with them because they have pockets on them. I said that was silly because you go through a metal detector and those pockets are not all that big so its not like you could put a bomb in there.

    he said "OH yea you could" all emphatic like he knows the deal about bomb making

    really? a bomb in the pocket of a seat cusion? Sure. I didn't say anything at all. Perfect, let it go situation because clearly he's just trying to argue for the sake of arguing.

    I think you did great. And that is a good trick (about the coffee) ... I have to remember that one.

    And ... I liked the sunset photo. :)
