Date night


This is me waiting on Clay to go out to eat. Wanna hear a kinda funny story about this? Alright. I'll tell you. So Clay and I like to do this thing where we aren't "that hungry" so we wait to think about dinner. Then all of a sudden him or I are STARVING TO DEATH! Well it was one of those nights. And so I was like, "HECK- it's Friday, let's just go out on a date" and Clay is always down with that. He loves going out to eat. So we want to take the motorcycle cause it's fun. But we wanted to go to Walmart and the Library. Well...Clay has this storage thing that can go on the back of the motorcycle but he couldn't figure it out. So he called his dad and when he got off the phone he said, "My dad is coming over to help me figure this out". And I immediately was like "NO! YOUR KIDDING?! WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?!?!?!!!! I'M STARVING THAT WILL TAKE FOREVER" and the truth is...I wasn't that dramatic. Yet...

He told me it would take a couple minutes. Now let me tell you something. Clay does this thing where something costs $2.99 and he tells me it costs 2 bucks. Like...he always rounds in the direction that would be most beneficial sounding for him. But the thing is- Clay's parents live about 10-15 minutes away and him and his dad talk a lot and they are both stubborn about figuring things out and not stopping till they are figured out and I just was thinking- ummm NOT WORTH IT. I'm starving here so lets just do that later and I'll wear a backpack or we take the car. Well, Clay SWEARS it'll take 2 minutes.

One and a half Grey's Anatomy episodes later I was pretty much fuming. I mean...I think most people think I'm not that dramatic but I can get pretty dramatic when I warn someone something will happen and they say it wont and then it does. So anyway- he came in and I said, you realize its been over an hour? And he had no idea. And to top it off they couldn't even figure it out so we took the car. I was so mad. But Clay apologized...and I didn't want to have a miserable evening. So I decided right before we walked into the restaurant, I would forget about it. And that's what I did! And it was a lovely evening.

I guess we aren't very good at taking pictures of ourselves without looking like we are looking away. 

The waiter was really wierding us out cause he looked STRAIGHT into your eyes. Not just once. But every single time he spoke to you. "Want some water?" was said as he was looking STRAIGHT INTO YOUR SOUL. Both of us noticed it. It wasn't just me. But the food was AMAZING. And the waiter was actually quite helpful for Clay. He was going to get one thing for one price...and the waiter pointed him towards another thing for the same price with way more food. We like that kind of service.

Incase you're wondering...we went to Garcias and I had the Tampico Stuffed Chicken which is basically the most delicious thing ever. And incase you're wondering it turned out to be way more expensive than we thought and we wont be going back until we are rich :)

You are far more patient than I am, I would have never made it through over an hour waiting. Me + Hungry = Very Irritable. I'm glad you guys still got to enjoy a good meal!

You look so cute in that shirt. I was just catching up with your posts. The one where Clay hacks the FHE website is hilarious and I am sure it will become a favorite family story. LOL.

oh Danielle you are so funny! You have totally cheered me up today! I love the description of the waiter! And the part of waiting until you are rich! love it. I have trouble taking pics and having it look like I am looking into the camera. I reallllly have troubles doing it with the ipad! I'm very impressed that you were able to let that go before you left. I have not always succeeded that well. Especially when we were remodeling the kitchen on Janus st. We tried to go on a date for 3 weeks in a row and every time either I told your dad to stop and got out and walked back home or he told me to get out! Oh the fun of the past!! I can laugh now about it! love you!!

Ok, somehow I missed this post. SO FUNNY. First of all- the time thing happens to Greg and I ALL THE TIME. He's just now catching on that he always underestimates time and I always have it right. So now he's starting to listen to me and I'm being more stubborn about not letting him assume we have time for something. Ok, the waiter seeing your soul thing was just funny. I can't imagine you guys riding a motorcycle to dinner. So wild. It's like you're so young and free. Like you could ride across the country on your bike. I want to go to a nice dinner. It's been too long. And it's ALWAYS more than we think. Being rich would be nice. Ok, you guys just have to get some leather pants and pose on your bike for a pic. Ooo, what a great christmas card that would make! It would be the best! Love you!
