Perfect Moment Monday

Alone in a movie theatre. Our first date in quite a while. We ordered popcorn, which we normally don't. (We do, but it is usually for the boy--who can down a whole large bag of popcorn on his own). A much anticipated movie on our parts, we sit waiting for it to start. We talk and eat popcorn (we also snuck in some chocolate--3Musketeers and Reeses Cups). The salty/chocolate taste mixed with soda and conversation. We are a couple. Not parents. The slight anxiety of leaving the kids at home with a sitter is mixed with the pleasure of each others company. And then the movie starts. And we share intimate knowledge of Nazis and gore. We laugh at the inappropropriate times, enjoying the violence and nonsense. We whisper "Who is that character actor? Haven't we seen him before?"

Later, we go to a small cheap taco/burrito bar. We had discussed Indian or Fancy Rib Place--but, we both worry about the expense of the sitter and, frankly seeing our children to bed. We eat at the cheap place and it reminds me of our first dates in college.

LOL! Us, too!

It's so important to be just a couple once in awhile. So glad you took the chance to do so, and that you enjoyed it so much!

Sounds like a perfect date night. I saw that movie and I'm sure there was enough scary stuff to make you snuggle close.

I'm visiting from to check out your Perfect Moment Monday.

I LOVE date night, even though it doesn't happen often enough. Maybe that is one of the reasons it is so special.

Thanks for sharing your perfect moment!
