A Night Out

On the advice of my Social Coordinator/Job Share Partner Extraordinaire, I went on a date with my hubbie last night. We started our evening with a dinner out at an Indian restaurant and then went to see the movie "Slumdog Millionaire."

We had a great time and even enticed some friends to come along, turning the evening into a double date. The process of double dating brought back memories of high school outings when we would go out for the evening in groups of girls and boys and fondly refer to it as "herd dating." Ironically, two of my herd dating gal pals now live on farms in southern Indiana. One friend raises Bison and the other friend has a number of different animals that she desperately tried to include in her Christmas card this year.

Let's come back to the present day and focus on last night's movie. I highly recommend it! Since seeing that movie, I vow to never complain again about my life. I look around my house and sing the praises of running water, flusing toilets, electricity and just modern day stuff! I will make only one more comment on the movie because I don't want to give anything away...the conditions that the characters in this movie lived through make our current economic crisis seem like a slight inconvenience. I hope you go see it and enjoy is as much as we did!

Bison/Hell Raiser?? That cracks me up! So far from the truth! Date nights are great...makes you remember why you like the person you're with so much!
