Date Night

Last night, the hubby and I decided to do what psychology books say couples should do to strengthen their marriage... Go on a date night.

Of course, it has nothing to do with the fact that we again "won" tickets to the Hilarities comedy club we always go to. We're just a romantic couple who go out on dates once in a blue moon ever since the kids were born.

To set the mood, on the way out, we argued about the garage door being out of battery, then bickered about his driving skills... because, you know, that's what romantic couples married for 6 years do! But nothing calms people down more than a glass of sangria and a bottle of beer. A few minutes later, we were holding hands and playing footsie under the table, like teenagers on a first date. Psychologists might really be on to something with their marriage advice!

Needless to say, we had fun. We strengthen our marriage by listening to the stand up comedian talk about his recent divorce and make fun of marriage. We then went to the casino nearby and gambled our hard earned money, hoping beyond hope that financial woes won't be the cause of arguments later.  I must have beginners luck, because we won a whopping $16 for playing blackjack! Granted that we only played 4 times, but that's definitely enough for a person who has gambling addiction genes running in her blood! I mean, look at the number of cousins I have who spent their life savings on casinos!

Like Cinderella, or maybe due to old age, by midnight, we were ready to head home. And like most first dates, the night didn't end with a romp in the bed. Much to my date's disappointment.
