I've been giving Todd a hard time for the last two weeks. I keep telling him that I want to be romanced and a nice start would be a candlelight dinner. I was informed via gchat that last night would be the night. I got done practice a little early and came in to a straightened up living room and two candles lit on the side tables. (see one below.) They smelled like fresh fruit.
He took my coat and showed me to my seat on the couch while I waited for him to finish preparing our feast. While I waited, he brought me a chilled lemonade in a martini glass.
Often while we're at work, if I don't have anything to talk about on gchat...I'll tell Todd that I want some certain kind of snack. Yesterday it was lemonade. And a Hershey bar.
While I waited for dinner, I watched House on DVR. Todd didn't really know what to do with himself while the oven did it's job so he took turns either standing over the pot of simmering rice or sitting in the arm chair in the back of the living room with Dr. Dieter (get it- he's got a white coat- that's why he's a doctor.)
About 40 minutes into House, I was presented with chicken stuffed with stuffing and a side of rice.
It was a super supper.
