And tonight I had a second date…

…with Jeff. Again. He was supposed to have worked OT today but his boss sent a text saying he wasn’t needed after all.
So we went to the movies – I had not been to an actual movie in a theater since the ex and I took my nephew to see Bad Grandpa. So yes, it’s been a while. Besides his obvious good looks and wonderful personality – Jeff is like me. And that goes a long way towards getting along. Since he lives an hour away, we made plans to meet at the theater. He asked me if I could bring along a big purse because he planned on getting some snacks in advance at the Dollar Store. I said of course – and that I had done that all the time when I had been more of a movie goer. When we met, he had the largest bag of popcorn I’d ever seen so that was a challenge figuring how to get that in, but the two bottles of Cherry Coke and the Twizzlers fit just fine. We saw Samson, which was a great movie. I really liked it a lot. Some of the “off with their heads” scenes had me a bit uncomfortable, but then again it gave me the opportunity to snuggle up against his shoulders.
After the movie, we sat outside in the beautiful Florida nighttime and listened to old time music from a bar there – Frank Sinatra (my mother’s biggest crush), Dean Martin. Then we went into a different bar and I had my first Moscow Mule. Loved it – ginger beer mixed with vodka and a lime. Mmmm mmm good.
After that we took a ride through Clearwater Beach – looking at the fancy houses just off the water, and took a walk on the beach. We didn’t walk too far but did manage to get some kissing done in the sand before we got nervous and went back to the car. We didn’t want to get caught by the cops – not that we were doing anything wrong, but still. He played tour guide and we drove around before stopping to take another walk along the water’s edge. Just walking and talking and laughing. What a perfect Monday night.
I told him that he REALLY rated because just about every Monday night for the past nineteen years I have spent it at home. Watching Raw. Knowing how much of a wrestling fan I am, he was impressed. I told him to have no fear, that I did record the show and I wouldn’t be missing anything of it. My viewing was only delayed and not denied.
Our next date is scheduled for Sunday. We are going to Spring Training to watch the Yankees vs. the Phillies. Stay tuned…
