Married for 28-years, instead of dining by candlelight, soft music, and a getaway at some retreat, we ate lunch at P.F. Chang’s. Mary paid, using a gift card she received at Christmas time.
Lunch was preceded by a stop at Lowe’s Hardware, where we bought a new range for Mary. She’s been doing without one after the bottom element in the stove burned out a couple of weeks ago.
But our anniversary adventure didn’t end there. We also when to Walmart and bought me some new underwear and socks.
Now, some might say the romance has escaped our marriage, but no one can say we lack a certain practicality and love for one another — plus a healthy sense humor.
I’m already planning next year; a refrigerator and new tennis shoes.
