I’m married to a wonderful man. He gave me a card and chocolates this morning. I was thrilled. While at work, he stopped by and bought me a dozen yellow roses. (See picture above.) He knew those are my favorite and how delighted I would be to see him in the middle of my day.
I was looking forward to the end of the day because I was so tired. Tom called and suggested we go out to dinner. Funny how quickly my fatigue fled. I met him for dinner at a restaurant called, Bonefish. It was a nice restaurant but very crowded hence the long wait. It didn’t matter because we got to be together. We had a wonderful meal. During our meal Tom told me to look at a couple with a child seating in a booth to my left. “Married or unmarried?” he asked. I took a quick look and noticed the child, the woman and the man all sat on the same side of the booth. I turned to Tom and said “Unmarried.”
The next booth had a man, woman and child. Again he asked, “Married or unmarried?” The man and woman were on opposite sides of the booth and the child was seated next to the man. “Married.”
Observing people can be fun. The way they sat next to each other told us plenty. The “unmarried man” looked off like he was bored and wished the kid was home with a sitter, made us think “unmarried.” The way the “married” man took care of the child next to him made us think “married.”
Now whether or not our observations were correct the funny thing was we agreed. It was fun. So hope your day was as lovely as mine.
