We worked for this one!
The premise was simple enough. When we were dating I quipped that we had a new definition of an “amusement park”–namely, the two of us together in a vehicle that wasn’t moving! Wanting to recapture some of that light-heartedness, I prepared this invitation:
I didn’t have a lot of time to be creative with the meal, but I dug out little top-hats to perch on meatballs & chose pickles for their amusement possibilities.
It was sunny & relatively warm outside, so we took advantage of that for a brief walk (it wasn’t that warm!). Earlier I’d asked my prince what he found most connective & he’d said “talking, preferably on a walk”. He did request a change of clothing before we left the house, though!
The rest of the evening was spent trying to be silly. I attempted some silly voices & references that had once sent us into peals of laughter. They didn’t get very far. I tried pulling my mouth into a silly face & cracked open my chapped lips. Hmm…better try something else…
My prince finally lapsed into a running trail of puns.
Ultimately we did enjoy our evening together, but it did highlight the need to work at being more lighthearted!
