Alex and I enjoy our date nights. They aren’t fancy, but it gives us a chance to get out of the house and breathe a bit. Recently we have been enjoying our Flood Liars Club membership as part of our date night. We go up to Great Flood, have a couple beers, and play a board game.
Due to my ever increasing mileage on my training runs, date night has been moved or canceled. I was worried about it last night. I needed to run on the treadmill (because the sidewalks are still pure ice), but I didn’t want to jut into our date night yet again. I was hit with an idea: I’ll invite Alex to the gym with me.
I can’t say how happy I was seeing him lifting weights while I was trudging along on the treadmill. I hate the treadmill. Its soooooo boring, but seeing Alex work hard made me want to work hard.
After we were finished, I suggested that we go to Great Flood to complete the evening and make it a real date night. There was no argument. Not like I expected one.
Alex had a Galaxy IPA (might be his new favorite). I decided to go with the Tribulation. I loved it, I would totally get it again, and I swear it had to be a 50/50 grain/coffee blend.
I think we might be repeating this date night idea in the future.
