Shopping our Stash's challenge this week is all about Love. Love, love, love, LUUUURVE! Sweetie schnook'ems pookie bear... I wub woo! Doesn't that make you want to gag?
Let me show you the love!
I recently overheard some girls gushing about a date one of them was going to go on. Abigail told Betthany (you know, Girl A and Girl B) how Studly was going to pick her up at 7 o'clock and they were going to go out for drinks, then to dinner, then see a movie, and go to another bar for dancing. There may have been bowling, road tripping, mountain climbing and a dwarf toss or two in there too. I don't as I got lost in the details because that seemed like a god awful lot to do in one evening. Then again I'm the type who turns into a pumpkin at 9 pm. But when it comes to young love, who can say what one is willing to do all in one evening.
How can you time it so your dinner is over in time to go to the movie? What if the service is slow? What if your dinner is served quickly? Then what? Do you just sit there, restless, making moonie eyes at each other while the wait staff frets at their table turnover rate? Or do you just go and hang out in the theater and watch the "coming attractions" over and over until you want to hang yourself? That would mean you actually have to spend time conversing with each other?! None if this sounds like a pleasant date.
And what is with these pre-dinner drinks at another location? Isn't it cheaper just to pop a shot at home? Shouldn't you not be drinking and driving anyway? What if traffic sucks and you miss your dinner reservation? What if between dinner and drinks you consume so much you don't have room for popcorn at the movie?! And then more drinks and dancing afterward?! What do you think I am? An Olympian?
Nope, dating just never was for me. But those kids today.... blown away by young love...
The Fine Print: My stash was thoroughly shopped for this card. That wavy corrugated cardstock has been around for forever! Plus I have a huge VD (that's Valentine's Day) designer paper stash that simply needs to be used. Stamp by Penny Black, heart die by Simon Says, heart punch by Marvy, other stuff from my stash. Maybe it is a guy thing, that dinner and movie combination timing. I know we've pulled it off before. Well, lunch and a movie. And a trip to Pet Smart, which you can use to fill that awkward time. Probably not conducive to young love though.
