It had been a long day for me. Kaye was spending the night at my parents’ house, for the second night in a row. I dropped her off on Thursday and she had a great time, wanting to stay another night. No argument here. With only one kid, I spent all day Friday running errands. Returned books at the library. Stopped at Target to get strawberries that were on sale for $1 per pound. Went to Home Depot to look at edging for our yard and pick up a weed killer spray. Stopped at Michael’s to return some stuff that were the wrong size. Hopped over to the YMCA to check out membership info. Also made a brief visit to Goodwill. Then returned home in time for dinner, but nothing made. After dinner, Nathan, Elle and I went to the grocery store to pick up milk. Then grabbed a few movies at Blockbuster. Lesson #1: Lots of running around prior to date night = one tired wife.
Good thing I had this date planned or else it probably wouldn’t have happened. I know there is a game called Would You Rather? I’ve never played it before. So I came up with a simple version of it for date night. Nathan and I both wrote down ‘would your rather’ scenarios on a piece of paper. Next we cut up each scenarios into strips and tossed it in a bowl. For each ‘would you rather’ question, I picked a scenario from the bowl and he picked one. It was so much fun and definitely learned something new about each other. Lots of laughs, that’s for sure. Lesson #2: If you want a date night filled with laughter, play Would You Rather.
Nathan said: This was a really simple game but it was fun to see some of Tiffany’s priorities. I came up with a few specific for her like “read all the Harry Potter books” just to irk her a bit. We had a few laughs and enjoyed the rest of the evening together.
