We finally got out for dinner to celebrate our anniversary...only 28 days after the actual date of May10. It's not a case of better late than ever, but it was time to be served our celebratory meal. At a very nice sit-down Chinese restaurant. I understand that fortune cookies are not a Sino but rather an American invention. But my fortune is rather prescient, as it stated the obvious...then, now, and continuing.
The meal was very nice with the lovely one having shrimp and asparagus and myself tangerine scallops (spicy sauce). As the place was mostly empty, we received extra attention (and a free after dinner plum wine served in nice cordial glasses).
The service reminded me of our first date in February 1985. It was snowing that day and we went to an (American) Mexican restaurant, normally crowded. But for us on that snowy day, we seemed to be the only occupied table. Therefore, lots of attentive staff and generous service. Much like our meal yesterday, it is nice to be served where we can just...talk. Relax. Enjoy our time together.
Th tenth of May, whenever observed, is always an excellent occasion.
