Best Date

Tammi's Saturday Question of the Day today was your best date....and I decided it was worthy of it's own post.

I actually have two. Because they were so great??? Nope!! Because they are about the only two great dates I've had!!

Date #1 was actually with Dirt when we first started dating. It was a Sunday afternoon, he came by to pick me up in his hot sports car, dressed all cool and smelling all good! In Southern California, everyday is beautiful, and this day was no different. Clear blue skies - it was fall so the heat was starting to die down, but was just warm enough to have the windows down and enjoy the sun beating down.

He didn't tell me where we were going, all he said was, "Down the Hill". Well, when you live in Twenynine Palms or Yucca Valley, "Down the Hill" means down about 5 miles of curvy, steep, winding road into Palm Springs. It's a beautiful drive.

We ended up in San Bernardino - at an amusement park. He was such a kid at heart and so am this was a great choice for the two of us.

We played games, he tried to show off, won a couple of prizes for me. We played putt putt and he took every opportunity he had to put his arm around me or hold me. And I still kicked his butt.

We rode on a couple of rides that were in my league. He then begged me to ride one of his favorite rides. It was one of those that you sat in a seat that went in circles, that was on these spider legs that went in circles. I'm pretty good at amusement parks....I can go high, upside down, hang, whatever....BUT I CANNOT GO IN CIRCLES. He talked me into it and I got on the ride with him. Afterward, I felt extremely nauseous. He knew it was time to go. He apologized profusely and held me up while getting to the car. I knew I wouldn't puke because I DON'T PUKE, but I still felt miserable. He stopped and got me some cold water, walked me to the car, reclined the passenger seat back, sat me down. He got in the drivers seat, turned the radio real low, turned on the air and pointed it at me, held my hand as we drove home.

Despite not feeling well, it was one of my best dates!

And then for #2. This one was with Butthead. We had been dating for about 6 months. In January, he had orders to deploy to Okinawa, Japan for a year. At the time, I was working two jobs, one at the MCX and the other at a Best Western as a night auditor. Well, I got 1 free room a month for working at Best Western, and I was going to use it for a suite for Butthead's last night in the states with me. I told him ahead of time that we were going to be staying there and would just leave the next morning to the airport.

That night, I made him dinner at my apartment, and we drove over to the hotel. We checked in, walked over to the suite, and opened the door......and there were rose petals on the bed and on the floor. The Jacuzzi tub was running, there were candles lit, and a bottle of wine (although we were both only 20). He had set up with my friend that also worked at the hotel to set all of this up.

The rest of the night wasn't so bad either ;-)
