Something special


     Occasionally you need to treat yourself (and your best friend) to something special.  G knows I hate to shop and I really hate to shop alone.  Today we went shopping for a few items I needed to pick up.  We found all but one but that’s okay.  I’ll find it elsewhere.

     On the way home from the conference I’d spotted a sign for a new restaurant’s grand opening and thought of G right away.  After we finished shopping, I rather surprised her by making a right turn where, to go home, I would normally turn left.

     I further surprised her by pulling into a shopping mall parking lot, parking the van, and telling her we were having lunch.  G was delighted.  She told me she was glad she hadn’t had any before we left.  That was the idea I’d had when I dragged her out before noon.

     Of course, after shopping, by the time we did get there for our lunch it was after the lunch crowds had left.  We had a wonderful lunch and a lot of fun.  By scoping out the restaurant first, we know we’ll be able to take the DH’s there too.
