Long Overdue Date Night
We’re making the most of having my mom in town this week. Yesterday was a full day.
In the morning, we all went to Joy Bistro (great patio and 8 different kinds of eggs benny!) for brunch. Cakes was excellent. She quietly ate her cheerios and cheese while we had breakfast--until I made the mistake of giving her some of my smoked salmon. Then she wouldn’t leave us alone until all of the salmon was gone.
BP and I left Cakes and Grandma at home and did another massive Home Depot run. I am so sick of that hellhole. We bought another two-hundred dollars worth of crap.
Last night we had our first date night in a long time. We started early, stealing out of the house at 5 pm. We went for a beer and an appie on a patio on Spadina. There was a guy wearing those fucking ugly garden clogs. What’s up with those things? I’m seeing them everywhere lately. They’re for the garden, people!
A cute little old man strode by in army fatigues and a feather in his cap (a different guy from the army guy in BWV). I love people watching.
Then we checked out a Fringe play called Flamenco Con Fusion, an odd blend of flamenco and breakdancing. It was pretty cool. I want to try to get to at least one more fringe show while mom’s here. Someone is doing a production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch that I’d like to see.
After the show we walked to College for a stroll and had a glass of wine and a big bowl of pasta outside. We planned to go for a nightcap, but could barely keep our eyes open by 11:00 so we came home and had a port of the roof deck.
Okay, you're not getting any more details.
I don't kiss and tell. Much.
