Saturdays are half solitary for me. I always have grand intentions of getting things done, then it turns out the buttermilk is frozen, then the recipe is faulty, and it just doesn’t happen the way you want it to. So instead, you just watch a movie and play Sims for a couple of hours because that game is the awesomest time suck in the history of the world.
And your love texts you and asks you if you want to meet for mai tais, and of course you do! You go early and use your voucher for free stuff at Victoria’s Secret. Then he gets there and there’s some stupid basketball game on, so Mai Tai Bar is packed, but it’s not dinner time yet, so you have to wander around until you’re hungry enough to grab a burger at Island’s.
You remember the Godiva rewards card in your wallet and get yourself a free key lime truffle because everything tastes better when it’s free. You fall in love with a green polka dot dress at Forever 21 and successfully manage to not let your husband talk you into buying it, even though he’s really persuasive.
It’s time for dinner, but there’s no room at the bar to take advantage of drink specials, so you just suck it up and pay full price. The food is fine, but the giant mangorita is spectacular. Luckily, one is plenty.
You go home and write a bunch, and guess what, your love is writing, too. He’s so prolific these days. Who is he? Don’t you just love him. It’s a lovely day.
