Date Night

Friday, October 1, 2010

It's Friday evening.

Mike and I are going out. Just us.

The community theater is putting on a play. Anne of Green Gables. You might have picked up on the little detail before about how much I love Anne of Green Gables. It's not really Mike's sort of thing. And I even gave him the option of not going. His mother and I would go together instead. But no, he said he wanted to be with me.


I know, be still my heart.

But then I thought.

And then I bursted the sweetness by putting a stipulation on it, "Now if you go you have to promise not to crack any sarcastic remarks about any of it no matter how chicky it seems to you."

:) :) :)

He smiled at me tenderly and said, "No hun, we're going to be kindergarten spirits tonight."


A smirk came to my face as I realized what he was trying to say. "Um, I think you mean kindrid spirits, sweetheart."

I LOVE Anne of Green Gables. I used to watch it with my dad when it played on PBS. Enjoy!

Lisa said...

Ha! That is hilarious.

Perhaps if the book were re-written Diana and Anne could be 'Kindergarten spirits' instead of kindred spirits. I know Lorelai would approve of that (seeing as she is a Kindergartener)

Enjoy the show!

My mom read the entire series of books aloud to me and my 3 siblings. ("Rilla of Ingleside" about Anne's youngest daughter was my favorite.) Your post brings back happy memories.
