Our friend Courtney is offering to watch our kid overnight. It is going to be Elijah’s first overnighter. I hope Courtney is prepared and whatnot. It could get interesting over there.
Anyway, this gives Michele and I an opportunity for a night out on the town together. This doesn’t happen very often. If we go out, we almost always do so with the kid. We like doing that. But now and then we like to go out and do things that are less family oriented than parks, museums and restaurants. Michele and try to I fit in some solo excursions into our schedules. Usually I get to hang with some people for a bit after I get out of work at midnight, and she’ll go out on the occasional Friday night. Sometimes she’ll go out on a Friday and not break anything. Someone has to stay home with the kid, so us going out together without him is a rare treat.
So, tonight we are going to go out and paint the town red. Then when we are done doing that, we are going to come back home and play some Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. We’ve been waiting for this game for almost a year now. It’s only the second video game that I remember Michele actually asking to get.
In the meanwhile, here is a special date night edition of World Premier Poetry.
Spare me simple treasures
I want only for rare stones
I will make you
And I’ll break you
Reveal the gift inside that’s come
Slow motion display
And once tried but long forgotten crimes
Do you whisper still
And steam from fingertips
Through your windowpane eyes
And broken stained glass lips
I learn of secrets
And tend to fires split
